Yoshi's Island is one of several DS games that are appropriate for kids. Bright colors, cool surprises, and tons of lovable green creatures make Yoshi's Island a fun game for everyone from school-aged kids to parents. If you're looking for DS games that are appropriate for kids, surprise your little one with this adventure-filled cartridge.
Features and Accessories

Yoshi is everywhere, so find one willing to carry you and hitch a ride to rescue the children who disappeared when the dark cloud covered the island. Jump on the wooden boxes to release your very own Yoshi, but hold on tight so you don't lose him. If you do, you have 10 seconds to jump back on and continue your journey.

After you beat the game, start back from the beginning and hunt for the hidden extras located throughout the island. You'll have a blast collecting red coins, flowers, and other surprises as you battle bad guys and save the kids.

Product Description

It takes both screens of the Nintendo DS to capture the spectacular scenery of Yoshi's Island!

Classic enemies are back, as are many all-new ones. Yoshi's Island DS makes great use of the double screens. Scroll up and down to see what lives above and beneath. Hurl eggs at objects on the top screen and tackle super-tall enemies that fill both screens.

Yoshi's Island DS sets a new standard on replayability. Hidden in every level are flowers, stars, red coins, and character coins, so even after you finish the game, the terrific sense of surprise continues. Enjoy the many minigames and bonus levels, too!

Return to the colorful wilds of Yoshis Island in a new platforming adventure for Nintendo DS.

A mysterious floating island has suddenly appeared over peaceful Yoshis Island. Soon after its arrival, a gaggle of kids vanishes from the island school. Thankfully, Baby Mario, Baby Peach, Baby Donkey Kong and Baby Wario manage to avoid being kidnapped. Now, Yoshi and the four young superstars must set out on a wild and colorful quest to rescue the kids and investigate the ominous island hovering overhead. Thanks to the power of Nintendo DS, all of the lush vistas and perilous paths of Yoshi's Island span two screens.

The Yoshis populating this wild and mysterious island take turns transporting the babies. Each baby gives Yoshi access to unique powers while they cling to his back: Baby Mario gives Yoshi speed; Baby DK gives him strength and the ability to climb vines; with her umbrella, Baby Peach gives him the ability to float high, and Baby Wario gives him magnetism (perfect for grabbing grown-up Wario's favorite things: coins!).

    I have loved Mario games since I was a kid, so when my kids got into them I was so excited! My four year old loves Mario, especially Yoshi and he was asking for the new game that failed to come out this year, so I decided to get him this for Christmas instead. I was under the impression it was the same one I played as a kid... but it's not! All new game, with the same Yoshi we all love, and it includes other babies like Wario, Princess Peach, Donkey Kong! So exciting! It is a bit hard for him, but he loves Yoshi so much that he keeps at it. I am sure with more practice, he will get much better at it. I have played it myself and it is super fun! Also, I admit it is a bit challenging... not so much for my 29 year old self, but it might take a bit of patience for younger kids ;). Must buy!

              We originally went to TRU to purchase a different, more expensive game. When my son saw this one, he wanted to try it. Turns out he can't stop playing it! This purchase worked out well, as it was $10 less than the original choice, and he loves it!
