My 9 year-old son thought up this idea and I think it’s a winner. We love playing with homemade foxtails, beanbags with long fabric tails, and the Flying Snake is a knitted animal version of this fun toy. Knit up a slithery snake, toss him in the air and watch his tail stream behind. The unstuffed snake has a beanbag head which pulls him to earth when he’s up in the sky. He is fun for a game of catch!
