Balloon Baby Yoshi is one of the three baby Yoshies that can be found in the game. If the player carries Balloon Baby Yoshi, they can use its ability to inflate, carrying the player into the air. Every time the player presses the ZR button or shakes the Wii Remote, Balloon Baby Yoshi will inflate, up to a maximum of seven times. Balloon Baby Yoshi will deflate after the seventh inflation. This ability is similar to Blimp Yoshi from Super Mario Galaxy 2.
