Went to the dollar store looking for some squirmy material. The tentacle toys rubber is thicker, more durable, and I like how it looks. Didn't find any in the toys so I went to the pets aisle to see if they had some sort of squeeze toy that would suffice. Found these instead:

Next time you order remind me to throw in some "Casters Squirmito" pieces. It's more durable than the Spirit River material, though I use it also. It's a little more translucent as well in many colors.

Looks like rabbit, so I'll be curious to see how long they float. I tie a rabbit strip mouse pattern with foam on top, and it usually has to be shaken out a bit after a few fish. Looks like these could have a foam underbody. Let us know how they work.

My buddy has a house full of bunnys and this definitely feels like it. The under body is a little stiff so these have some weight to em, I dont think its foam, its sort of hollow on the inside, hard when i push on it then regains the shape, possibly plastic.
