Yoshi’s Woolly World #NintendoCanada

One of the things I love about the Nintendo Wii is that the entire family can play and have fun! The games we have been playing are easy enough for the youngest to enjoy and still entertaining enough for the adults. We have been spending more time together as a family and having lots of laughs. Recently we tried out a new game, a twist on an old game.


Yoshi’s Woolly World

For the first time in a Yoshi game, two players can play through the entire story together in local multiplayer, with each player controlling his or her own yarn Yoshi. By gobbling up their allies, players can turn the other yarn Yoshi into a ball to toss him to hard-to-reach areas. This is great when searching for collectibles and hidden areas … but also fun for people who just want to cause a little harmless mayhem. At the end of each stage, each player’s score is tallied to see who emerged victorious. It’s up to players to decide if they want to cooperate or take a more competitive approach to determining who can be the best in each stage.

As checkpoints are reached and levels finished you will unlock other Yoshi characters. Throw yarn balls to create obstacles or to take them away.

Yoshi’s Woolly World launched in stores and the Nintendo eShop on Wii U on October 16 at a suggested retail price of $64.99. For more information about Yoshi’s Woolly World, visit http://yoshiswoollyworld.nintendo.com/.


We have a lot of fun playing around in their wooly world. I asked my kids their thoughts and this is what they said


6 year old-She likes that you can unlock characters and that Yoshi has fun powers . She also enjoys the bonus levels throughout the game

Teen- Likes playing as a team and picking up the other character to throw them to reach levels and power ups.

Me- I like the cute characters but I also like to see my kids playing together. I like the fact that the game is family friendly and I do not need to monitor them while they play.
