Hi, my name is Huang Liang and I like to play jian zi. It's something like hacky-sack, but the 'sack' is fluffy, not solid. Mine is made of nylon, but traditionally it is made of chicken feathers and a coin. If you play it in the winter, it helps you stay warm; but my friends and I like to play it any time.
