|“||You know, I've been a Squashy Grape for so long, I think we should continue to be the Squashy Grapes! Sounds good?||”|
The Squashy Grapes (formerly Leafy's Team) was a team in Battle for Dream Island.
The team included Leafy along with nine contestants originally picked by her in "Take the Plunge: Part 2". The team had a 4 contest winning streak from BFDI 2 to BFDI 5. In "Insectophobe's Nightmare", the team, with 10 characters, was split up into 2 teams due to the imbalance between it and the Squishy Cherries. One team's name remained as Squashy Grapes, while the other team's name was Another Name. The Squashy Grapes have won the most of the challenges of season 1.

In "Take the Plunge/Part 2", Leafy chooses Ice Cube to be on her team. Ice Cube thanks Leafy for picking her as Pencil rejected her from her alliance. Leafy wondered who should she choose, to which Ice Cube replies that it was up to her. Leafy then chooses Teardrop, calling her the "silent type", to which Teardrop glares at Leafy. Leafy starts thinking of another teammate to join. She chooses Needle (Ice Cube seems to agree as well) as she excitedly runs towards Leafy's team. Announcer then suggests for them to pick a boy. When Needle chooses Snowball, Blocky says that Needle and Snowball are in love, which Needle answers she likes Coiny more. Snowball and Coiny gasp, and Blocky furiously says, "Did you just say that?" but she states that it was an accident. Snowball then angrily glares at Needle for the comment she made, but then Leafy breaks off the argument (while pushing Needle off) and tells them to settle down as it was time to pick someone else. Snowball requests Coiny on his team just because Needle said that she liked him more than himself, to which Needle stands up and apologizes and asks if it was really a big deal.
Leafy then says "There's always TB. He's smart." Leafy, along with Needle, and Tennis Ball, choose Golf Ball. Tennis Ball discusses with the team about how Flower is angry at everyone, to which Needle does not like where "this is going". Tennis Ball says Flower could become more of an enemy if Pin's team gets her and suggests that they pick her for their team, much to Needle's dismay, but Golf Ball agrees with him, and Coiny teases them about having a crush on each other. Golf Ball then argues that they are only friends. When Rocky and Woody are left, Leafy chooses Rocky over Woody. The team isn't able to agree on a name, so the Announcer calls them the Squashy Grapes.
At the start of the challenge, the Squashy Grapes start chatting. Golf Ball tells all her teammates that she plans to build a motorboat. The Squashy Grapes continue chatting, to which she asks if anyone is listening to her. Snowball retorts how confusing the plan is, but Golf Ball doesn't care about what he says. Snowball threatens her that he would push her off the cliff. Golf Ball doesn't believe it and proceeds to mock that Snowball's brain wouldn't allow such insanity. Enraged, he charges directly at her, causing her to fly off from the cliff and fall into the water below. Everyone, except for Flower, who just walks away, and Rocky, who instead gets knocked into the air, run away in fear. Then Rocky falls onto Snowball and gets knocked off the cliff.
The rest of the team, except Flower, get to building their yacht. When it's complete, Leafy, Ice Cube, and Coiny are the only ones who get on board for the challenge. They almost collide with the Cherries' boat but instead, their boat acts as a ramp and sends them in the air, over a bunch of creatures. They also fly past the finish line and fly through several trees and into a different pool of water, to Coiny's disappointment. Leafy, Ice Cube, and Coiny jump back to land and spot the Cherries swimming toward the finish line where the Announcer is standing. As Leafy, Ice Cube, and Coiny run to the finish, a gust of wind comes and blows Leafy away due to her lightweight. Ice Cube slides across the grass to get to the finish, leaving a trail of slippery water, which Coiny slips on. Ice Cube slides into the finish line, but Pen knocks her away with his cap before she rips it. Pin ends up ripping the finish line, so the Squashy Grapes lose.
In "Barriers and Pitfalls", the Squashy Grapes attend their first Cake at Stake and Flower is eliminated with four votes. In the challenge, Needle and Teardrop are the only Grapes who complete the obstacle course, as everyone else fell into the failures' waiting room, except for Ice Cube who was killed on accident by Leafy. Needle also wins the Win Token. The only Cherry who finished the course is Firey, but he isn't able to do the last step, which is filling a bucket with water, giving Needle and Teardrop a huge advantage that allows them to win easily.
In "Are You Smarter Than a Snowball?", due to Snowball ripping his test in anger, Tennis Ball being kicked down a hill, Coiny falling in a hole, Leafy and Needle's tests getting burnt, and Ice Cube spending the entire episode either being slowly recovered or repeatedly killed by Blocky, Rocky, Teardrop, and Golf Ball are the only ones who turn in their tests. Although, Rocky didn't write anything on his since he can't write. The Squashy Grapes would've lost had it not been for Pen and Blocky cheating, so they win and Golf Ball gets the Win Token for having the highest score.
In "Sweet Tooth", the first challenge is a baking a cake. Leafy bakes a large strawberry cake to share with anyone who is having trouble making one themselves, Golf Ball bakes a chocolate cake (which gets accidentally sabotaged by dirt that Snowball threw), Tennis Ball makes a rice cake, Coiny bakes dirt, Rocky barfs in a bowl of water, and Needle makes a cake made entirely out of yeast (which becomes a star in space by the end of the episode). Ice Cube was XQZ'd (excused) due to once again being dead and it's unknown what Snowball and Teardrop baked. The Grapes lose the first challenge but win the chocolate ball eating contest, so they need a tiebreaker. The tiebreaker challenge is to rip neckties. Snowball rips his team's necktie first, making them safe.
In "Bridge Crossing", everyone except Snowball, Teardrop, and Coiny fell into the gorge before any of them could cross the bridges. Both bridges also end up destroyed, so they need another tiebreaker. Which is once again to rip neckties, which Snowball once again accomplishes, making his team safe.
In "Power of Three", the Squashy Grapes are temporarily split into 3 teams of 3 for the challenge.
In "Puzzling Mysteries", the team is down a member, Needle, due to the losing temporary team in the previous episode being made up of Squashy Grapes. However, they immediately win back their number advantage by winning the puzzle contest first. As a reward, they get to choose a member of the Squishy Cherries to join their team and the majority chooses Firey, to Coiny's dismay.
In "Cycle of Life", Firey, Ice Cube, Leafy, Golf Ball, and Rocky are randomly selected to compete in the relay race. They end up winning and their prize is a previously eliminated contestant.
In "Insectophobe's Nightmare", Blocky rejoins the game and joins the Squashy Grapes, and wins a Win Token. The Announcer decides to permanently split the team's this time, making the Squashy Grapes into two teams of five. Leafy gets to pick her team again. She first chooses Ice Cube, who once again thanks her picking her since Pencil wouldn't let her in the alliance. Leafy asks Ice Cube if Teardrop should join, and Ice Cube happily replies that she should join. Leafy then decides that out of the people left, Snowball is the best. Snowball lastly picks Blocky since he's better friends with him than Firey. When told to choose the team names, Leafy decides to continue being the Squashy Grapes. In the challenge, Snowball rushes his team to tie their legs together so that they can compete. However, everyone is moving too slowly for his liking, so he ties them all up in a ball and tries pulling everyone by himself. This of course doesn't work and their team loses.
In "Crybaby!", Teardrop and Snowball get the two highest amount of votes and leave the team. In a 2 to 3 vote, the Cherries choose Snowball for their team and Teardrop is eliminated. In the crying challenge, Blocky melts Ice Cube with Firey. Despite them having more water than the other team's, the Announcer says it's a tie and that they need a tiebreaker. For the ski challenge, Blocky does the skiing while Leafy sits on him and Ice Cube is excused due to dying. Leafy is able to signal Blocky about Rocky's presence in the snow, making them the only team to avoid colliding with him and turning into a snowball. They cross the finish line in second, and therefore don't win or lose.
In "Lofty", in the balloon challenge, Ice Cube is once again absent for most of the challenge as she gets shattered by Coiny. Blocky and Leafy alone win by popping the balloons of Another Name and the Cherries, with or without nails, and finally place first.
In "A Leg Up in the Race", Leafy chooses Tennis Ball to join their team over Coiny. The team of four is then immediately broken up as there are no more teams.
