  • About Yoshi:
    • Yoshis come in all sorts of colors, but Mario's close buddy debuted in green. Kind-hearted, naturally protective of others, and perpetually hungry, Yoshi is always up for adventure...especially if there are snacks involved. Yoshis can flutter their legs to jump incredibly high. They also have extremely long tongues that they use to snare fruit and even enemies - anything they swallow gets turned into throwable eggs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from amiibos are a solid 10 I am writing this review because i see biased numbers for each amiibo score. All the amiibos are great figures and have a lot of potential for their featured games, even though it can hold one game save (write once) but also add content to future games (read feature used endlessly on other systems). If you dont the content an amiibo gives they well at least you have a really cool nintendo figurine for very cheap. Yoshi is awesome and deserves a 10 score not a 7 score.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better collectible than game accessory If you were to ask me, these are worth it if you buy them more for the purpose of buying an affordable collectible. The designs are very accurate and are made with good materials. It feels cool to me to own one and sit it on your shelf. Do not get me wrong, you do get SOME nice content and use for these in the games that currently support these amiibo figures but it's all content and features you can live without. Currently nothing that adds real depth to the experience. Features are mostly cosmetic and or something already available in the games. Nintendo will be releasing more games, and more figures, that are compatible overtime to try and get people to buy a variety of them. I would make sure you do your research first at Nintendo's website, or somewhere else, to find out what amiibos are compatible with what games and what features and content come with those amiibo. For example, this Yoshi amiibo is planned to be compatible with the upcoming Yoshi's Woolly World, on sale next year. I will say it again. If you like collectibles then these are cool to have, plus, they are official. If you want them for the video games then I would hold off until a future game or figure comes along that offers something more unique. There are a lot of cool ideas and great potential that could be used with these in Nintendo's video games so I hope the company is able to figure them out.
