The Yoshi's Woolly World Collection is an original line of amiibo depicting Yoshi as he appears in Yoshi's Woolly World. Unlike any other amiibo figure, the amiibo in this line aren't plastic figures with a base, but are rather plush toys made out of wool, with their base integrated in their butt.

The original wave consisted of three Yarn Yoshis: one in green, one in pink and one in light blue. Not only are these the Yoshi colors from the first three levels of each world in the Yoshi's Island games, but they also correspond with the colors of the Yoshi of each file in Yoshi's Woolly World. These three amiibo were released at the same time as Yoshi's Woolly World itself, on June 26 2015 in Europe, July 16 2015 in Japan and October 16 2015 in North America.

Later, a larger Yarn Yoshi was released, known as the Mega Yarn Yoshi, which had a based integrated in its left foot. It was released in North America first, on November 15 2015, and then in Europe on November 27 2015, and finally was released in Japan on December 10 2015.


Yoshi's Woolly World

Similar to the Yoshi amiibo, the Yarn Yoshis of this set will add a duplicate Yoshi in the level that completely mimics all the moves of the player's original Yoshi. The color of the Yoshi depends on the color the amiibo depicted it, so a Pink Yarn Yoshi amiibo will let the duplicate Yoshi appear as pink. Players can save any of the patterns they've unlocked so far on the amiibo, and can even pick between three variations of each pattern.

Despite the size, the Mega Yarn Yoshi has the exact same effect as a regular Green Yarn Yoshi.

Other (Canon)

In almost all the other games, all the Yoshi amiibo share the same functions as a Yoshi amiibo from the Super Smash Bros. Collection or the Super Mario Collection.

In Super Mario Maker, however, each amiibo will unlock a different Costume Mario without the need to play 100 Mario challenge. While it looks almost the same as a regular Yoshi Costume, there's a slight pattern in the Yarn Yoshi costumes and they all have their sound effects from Yoshi's Woolly World, instead of Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island.

  • Like the Chibi-Robo amiibo, the Yarn Yoshi amiibo in this collection don't show any of the characters on the front of the box itself, while those of any other amiibo show character artwork of the depicted amiibo. It is also the only amiibo Collection that consists of more than one amiibo figure to do so.
