Does anyone remember "water wieners" (also known as "slippery snakes")? It was like a medium sized phallic-looking thing filled with water and glitter with a soft plastic sleeve?




I want to make them and give them out for Halloween (its always nice to get toys in addition to the run-of-the-mill candy) and am curious as to how to make them. It looks like there are two sleeves on them... any ideas?

=O

i JUST saw those at the dollar store the other day (for those who live in Canada - Dollarama). I think it's like a tube of plastic - there's an outter and inner cylinder of plastic - but they're connected as one. the fluid then flows in between the two with funky little charms and glitter. I had so much fun trying to hold on to them XD

wow, donno how to make one of those. I dont think they're two pieces, thought it was just one that goes inside itself... I have no idea how to fill it almost full and seal it...


Good luck with that, though! Lol

I spent time dechifering one I had long long ago... It was one piece of plastic, wide enough to make the circumference, and double the length of the finished product.
My guess is you start with attaching the lengths together, making a very long tube. Then you take one end and pull it up along the outside (or inside..) as if you're trying to turn it right-side-out. But you stop when both ends meet. I guess you fill it in this state - with both ends on "one end" of the tube (i.e. not in the middle of it..). Probably easiest to fill it while staying "under water" (or whatever liquid..) with the whole thing, so gravity won't mess with ya, and you won't get air bubbles. And close the ends on eachothers.
Don't know how to attach any ends to eachothers though, I'm not good with glues nor melting techniques.

Don't know if that made sense, but I tried Wink

Melladh-- that was an excellent description!

I'm thinking thick vinyl from the upholstry section and.... aquarium sealer? but it would have to be underwater when you filled???

Or, seal it while dry and empty.  Dry, then inject it with a gel-like substance? that starts out watery then thickens?.....

I think it should be filled with water, or the things inside won't move freely, and it won't squirm as easily. The injection was an interesting idea though, and seal the hole with something.

You might be able to seal it (with charms and glitter inside), inject it, and then put a waterbed patch on it to seal it.

I'm thinking that upholstery vinyl would be too thick and stiff. Maybe something more like cut up air-matresses or other pool toys.

wouldn't it be cheaper to buy them? It seems difficult! But if you do make them it would be great to see!
