This is a great toy for the kids to play outside.
Dawna Lindley
The soft ball means I don't have to worry about her getting hurt while playing, but it has just enough weight to throw it 30+ feet.

We have a young Yorkie puppy and she LOVES the foxtail and chases it like crazy and brings it right back to us.

I LOVE this toy!! I bought 2 of them many years ago for my 2 boys and they really were helpful for young children learning to catch because it has a long nylon like tail so it gives more of a chance to catch. We have a young Yorkie puppy and she LOVES the foxtail and chases it like crazy and brings it right back to us. I think it is a very fun dog toy, not sure how durable it would be for a large dog but my dog has not destroyed it and plays rough with it so I recently ordered 2 new ones because she loves them so much!

There are 3 versions of this toy. This version, Foxtail Softie, minimizes tears if a child gets hit by a fast moving Foxtail. We have the Sonic version, too. My son cried when he got hit in the stomach by the harder rubber ball of the Sonic. They all move through the air well, the extra weight of the hard rubber not needed for faster fun. The only benefit to the Sonic is the sound made by the holes in the rubber/plastic ball. My daughter and I love to toss back and forth for an hour or more. She likes to try and catch it when I throw it to her high in the air. You get zero to 5 points depending on where you catch it. We usually do even keep score. Lots of fun.

We love the foxtail ball. My son doesn't like to fail and isn't the best catcher so it has been hard to practice for improvement. When the PE teacher sent it home in the weekend play equipment bag it was an instant hit because it gives him more time to grab it. The ball is soft so if it hits you (even in the head) it really doesn't hurt. The tail slows it down enough to make it easier to catch and of course gives greater opportunity to grab it. The points options for scoring where you caught the tail and other suggestions for game variances was a bonus. Actually now our favorite game to play with it is dodge ball!

If I had had a third person to operate the camera, I would have gladly done a video review for this one. Parents and grandparents know The Grin that kids get when they recognize a good game. This toy practically produced a lightning flash along with The Grin the first time it went aloft. My grandkids and I played Foxtail for about 15 minutes while they prepared to go home and according to Mom, they hadn't let go of it a week later. (Tip: Buy one per kid and another for yourself. This can get political. Tip2: avoid trees unless you have a 50 ft. fiberglass pole and extra-human patience. Water's no problem because the foam ball floats.)

I have had a Foxtail twice in the past, when my now 30 year old son was young. I bought these two for two preschoolers' birthdays and they loved them! I am a licensed family child care provider and the young children I care for thoroughly enjoy the worn out torn one that we play with on a daily basis. It's easy for young children to throw and regardless of their throwing ability it always goes somewhere! And they feel good about that!

My entire family loves this toy. It is great to get out and have a game of catch. When it first arrived my boys (ages 5 and 10) were outside with it for 2 hours. The only downside is when it is windy because it is so light. On those days, or at the beach, we use the regular Foxtail.

Doesn't fly as far as the normal fox tail because the weight from the ball just isn't there, but this is for kids to learn so the don't get smashed in the face with the harder ball version. For what it is intended to do, it does it perfectly. Very durable, my kids love it.

This thing is decent enough for smaller kids. But for big kids, its to light and doesn't fly very far. The only way to get it to fly farther is to get it wet. So you can conclude, that it is good for the beach but only decent for any place else.
