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 menacing grins. However, when a Yoshi approaches them, they will drop to the ground, rolling very quickly, squashing any enemies, and hurting the Yoshi upon contact. They disappear after hitting a wall. The Yoshi can also cause one to laugh and prematurely attack by shooting an egg at it from a distance.

In Yoshi's Crafted World, Fooly Flowers have a different role. When a Yoshi hits a Time Cloud with an egg, the challenge provided could possibly be for the 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.
