The Foxtail was a classic outdoor toy and game that was popular in the 1990s.  It was a favorite throwing toy for kids across the country for over a decade. The instructions to play were simple: hold by the tail, spin to throw and then catch by the tail.  As the original instructions read: "never, ever, ever catch by the ball". The iconic three color tail was used for playing Foxtail the game: where points are awarded depending on where you catch the tail.   

 The recipe is pretty simple...

We cannot guarantee we will have stock left after this Kickstarter, so back this project and ensure you get your Foxtail! 

We're toy makers. This isn't our first toy.  In fact, this isn't our first Foxtail. As we explain in our snazzy video we made the Foxtail Softie (that's the version made for kids under the age of 8) over a year ago, and made the Foxtail LED shortly after that. So, we're pretty good at making Foxtails now.  We're bringing this toy back in collaboration with the original inventor: Mike Callaghan.

  We've got good news! We are almost ready to ship the Foxtail, and we can produce it and have it at your door in about 6 to 8 weeks, with plenty of summertime left.  

Risks and challenges

This is the first production run of a new item and defects and typos are a higher probability. However, we stand 100% behind anything we make. If you ever want a refund or to exchange your purchase for a brand new one, we have you covered.
