Expansion Block

From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia
The Expansion Block in its normal size (top) and its expanded size (bottom).

An Expansion Block[1] is a block that resembles a pink Egg Block in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3, Yoshi's Island DS and Yoshi's New Island. However, it does not release eggs. Instead, when struck from below, an Expansion Block expands to help a Yoshi go higher. However, after a set amount of time, Expansion Blocks shrink back to their normal size.
