Fooly Flowers[1], originally known as Dizzy Dandies[2], are flower head enemies that appear in every Yoshi's Island game to date. At first sight they will look like the collectible Smiley Flowers, floating in midair, but with a menacing grin. However, when Yoshi approaches them, they will drop to the ground rolling very quickly, squashing any enemies, and hurting Yoshi upon contact. They disappear after hitting a wall. Yoshi can also cause one to prematurely attack by shooting an egg at it from a distance.

In Yoshi's Crafted World, Fooly Flowers have a different role. When Yoshi hits a Winged Timer Cloud with an egg, the challenge provided could possibly be for Yoshi to find the real Smiley Flower among a large group of Fooly Flowers, and throw an egg at the collectible before time expires. Here, if a Fooly Flower gets hit, it simply disappears.
