A Bouncy from Yoshi's Island DS

Bouncies (singular Bouncy or Bouncie[1][2]) are pink, bubble-like creatures first seen in Yoshi's Island DS. If one is touched, the character who touches it will bounce back a few feet. Thereby, these creatures can help the Yoshis to reach high places. Bouncies can also help Yoshi speed past fast-moving crushing walls by bouncing him at a high speed. They are prominently featured in the minigame Bouncy Maze.

Bouncies first appear in World 2-5 of Yoshi's Island DS, called "Boing!" In the level Teeth-Chattering Chill Zone, Bouncies that bounce off of the platforms can be slightly knocked backwards by hitting them.

Bouncies make a minor appearance in Yoshi's Woolly World in one of the Bonus Games.
