Fans of Super Mario, or more specifically games with Yoshi in them, are going to love this nightlight. It’s very exciting. No yolk. This official piece of Nintendo merchandise is USB powered, so just plug it in and enjoy the light that it emits.
Mario, Luigi, and Yoshi are some of the most iconic characters from the glory days of Nintendo gaming. If you love those characters, you will want to get your wallet out and buy this cool Yoshi action figure.
As everyone knows by now, Nintendo needs to sell anything they can since the Wii U has sold so terribly for them. So to get more sales in general, and to promote the release of Yoshi’s New Island, Nintendo is releasing a new, special edition Yoshi-branded Nintendo 3DS XL.
Who can forget Mario’s lovable and dependable green sidekick? Sorry Luigi, we’re still not talking about you. I’m talking about Yoshi, the omnivorous, egg-laying, ground stomping, tongue swinging dinosaur. Jacob Ashley immortalizes a familiar sight in many a gamer’s mind with this wood and acrylic piece.
There have been several versions of Mario Kart racers and most range from okay to pretty decent, but these Super Deluxe versions put the rest to shame. They are larger than the rest and they zip around super fast.
After mechanizing Mario’s dinosaur companion, Flickr user Kodykoala drains the life out of Yoshi.
That’s one nasty zombie. Kodykoala also answered my only complaint about Mecha Yoshi and added the dinosaur’s trademark tongue, making him a prehistoric version of the Smoker from Left4Dead.
After years of being someone else’s steed, Yoshi finally gets his own ride, thanks to custom action figure maker/Flickr user/Nintendo super fan Donald aka Kodykoala. I love the details on his custom Yoshi mech, from the bolt-like markings to the scratches and faded paint.
Pixel artist Jude Buffum is back with some new stuff: he’s put together some handy images that tell you which parts of your favorite Nintendo 8-bit characters you’ll enjoy eating the most. Naturally, he stays away from the heroes and only presents the ones you’d really like to butcher, like the Koopas and Yoshi.
Remember Dirk VH’s giant LEGO Mario? Well it looks like LEGO Mario has a new bricky dinosaur friend, in the form of LEGO Yoshi.
Dirk took about 60 hours to build this 2-foot tall LEGO Yoshi, complete with bulbous proboscis (I think I know the name of my new band).
This handmade plush Yoshi of Nintendo fame is straight up awesome… and its maker isn’t completely satisfied. Talk about perfectionism.
At first glance, I thought that was professional work. If I’d seen this Yoshi in a store, I wouldn’t have thought twice about picking him up and giving him a squeeze.
You know, square? Like pixels? Oh, lame jokes, never desert me… and internets, please never stop supplying fantastic fan art. Even the dog from Duck Hunt–my most despised video game nemesis ever–looks great here.
Pixel art is a funny thing: it’s both simple and complicated.
Awwww. What could be more adorable than these plush little versions of classic Nintendo characters?
The only thing even more sickeningly sweet than the little squishy Mario is this plush and huggable mini-Yoshi.
All of these plush little guys are handcrafted by Kelley of LittleElfsToyshop using a technique called needle felting.
