A Surprise Ball (also known as a ! Ball, ‘!’ Block, Exclamation Mark Block, or Exclamation Block) is a spherical platform that Baby Yoshis use in Yoshi's Story. Surprise Balls are round in shape and float in midair. To use one, a Yoshi must use his tongue on this object, and he will be pulled in and thrust upwards, ending up standing on top of it.
A similar-looking item exists in the game, titled the ? Bubble–instead of an exclamation mark, this red ball has a white question mark on it.
