Dizzy Dandies (also called Fake Flowers or Fooly Flowers) are flower head enemies who appear in every Yoshi's Island series title to date, and have debuted in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island. Dizzy Dandies resemble the collectible Smiley Flowers, also floating in midair, but give off a mean expression. Whenever a Yoshi approaches a Dizzy Dandy, it drops to the ground and rolls very quickly, squashing any enemies along its way. If it touches Yoshi, he takes damage. A Dizzy Dandy disappears after hitting a wall.
A cool trick involving Dizzy Dandies can be found in the Monkeys' Favorite Lake level. The player can go to the area with several Dizzy Dandies, Spear Guys, and water pits. If one falls down to Yoshi, while it's rolling in the shallow water, Yoshi should swallow a Spear Guy. When the Dandy is about to fall down into a pit, Yoshi should spit out the Spear Guy at it. If timed right, the two should collide, making a spinning fireworks display.
