Bocci Ball

Bocci Balls[1], or balls[2], are huge wooden objects that appear in Yoshi's Story. They only appear in Blargg's Boiler, where they are partially submerged in lava, and Piranha Grove, where they are placed above stalks that will damage the Yoshis if they touch them. They are named after the sport of bocci, which involves rolling balls around. The Yoshis use them to traverse the lava or stalks by balancing on it and rolling it forward.
