Xylophones[1] are objects that appear in Yoshi Topsy-Turvy. They are multicolored objects that take the appearance of a toy xylophone. They can appear red, scarlet, orange, yellow, green, blue, or purple. When Yoshi rolls a ball over them, they play a tune, such as "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star," which creates rising notes that can be used as platforms for Yoshi.
