Windbags[1][2] are brown, eggplant-like enemies that blow strong winds from Yoshi's Island DS. Their name is a pun on "windbag", a term referring to a person who talks a lot. The strong wind blows four Nipper Spores out of a Nipper Dandelion, which eventually land and become Nipper Plants. If hit with an egg, they will be knocked out, but a few seconds later, they will regenerate. Yoshi will bounce off it if he touches it, and it will faint for a bit.
