Yoshi’s Crafted World: How to find every Smiley Flower

Those Yoshi’s Crafted World Smiley Flowers make the game a completionist’s dream. It's chock full of tricksy collectables, the kind that Nintendo loves to fill their charming platformers with, but the Yoshi’s Crafted World Smiley Flowers are the main means to advance through the worlds and unlock secrets in the post-game. Some of them are straight-forward, but many are quite difficult to find, especially if you don’t know what you’re doing. Lucky for you flower hunters, this guide will run through how to pick up every conventional Smiley Flower in the game. Be prepared, as the word egg eventually becomes an adjective as we descend into the collectathon madness.

Rail-Yard Run

Smiley Flower 1 - Hard to miss. It’s the platform above the piranha plant, wiggle in the air to reach it.

Smiley Flower 2 - This one is in a papercraft house behind a row of coins, chuck an egg at it.

Smiley Flower 3 - When you’re looking for the three train parts, there’s a flower hiding in a present-shaped house in the middle of the area. Egging it will create a lane for Yoshi to cross over.

Smiley Flower 4 - Enter the first house on the left from the train, go right to the top and to your left, its on top of a water tower.
