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

Dino Smash

Smiley Flower 1 - Use your Triceratops skull to wipe out a massive column of shy guys, which has a lovely flower on top.

Smiley Flower 2 - After you lose your skull and start getting chased by the Cubone impressionist, hit the timer cloud and ping the three blue coins for a second smiley.

Smiley Flower 3 - Right after the second one, there’s another timer cloud you can pop. Collect all the apples for flower three.

Smiley Flower 4 - Again, straight after the third flower, you can pop the cloud underneath the next platform on the left for the fourth flower. Stomp through the rocks to get there.

Smiley Flower 5 - Once you get to the giant sandstone structure, don't break anything, hop right to the top and jump left for the fifth smiley.

Smiley Flower 6 - Just before the final ending tape, stomp the jump pad and flutter in the air to get the final smiley. 

Skelesaurus Wrecks

Smiley Flower 1 - The big spiny boy will eventually do his first headbutt, which reveals a flower inside of a stone box.

Smiley Flower 2 - Run ahead and turn around after the first one and pop the cloud before the skeleton arrives to get the second smiley.

Smiley Flower 3 - The dino will whip his tail at the next flower structure, so hop up top quickly so you don’t miss it!

Smiley Flower 4 - Wait for the next headbutt from the skelesaurus and you will have to hop back towards him to get this fourth flower. 

Smiley Flower 5 -  After the headbutt, you will see a cloud timer you can pop. Once you’ve managed this, stomp every stump until the flower appears.

Smiley Flower 6 - The final flower is way up in the air when the skelesaurus goes wild and starts chasing you. Keep Yoshi up high to grab it with ease.

Altitude Adjustment

Smiley Flower 1 - In this fast-paced level, the first smiley flower is right near the start. Once you get the notification, curve up in the air as this smiley is high in the sky.

Smiley Flower 2 - The second smiley is right near the end of the level, and the way to get it is to immediately send Yoshi to the back of the plane when you see the notification so he can guide the plane into the flower.

Poochy’s Magma Run 

Smiley Flower 1 - You’ll find this one right next to the first goopy lava enemy. Pop the cloud on the bottom to make it appear and dodge around him to get the first one. 

Smiley Flower 2 - This appears after the lava enemy, and just before the first checkpoint. Above an orange shy guy, pop the cloud to get the second one.

Smiley Flower 3 - Once you see a tin foil platform that is rising with pressure, push it down and use poochy to ride through the lava and get flower three.

Smiley Flower 4 - Advance until you see the floating seagull platforms and another gooey lava boss. Pop the cloud timer and eat all the apples to drop flower four.

Smiley Flower 5 - This one is difficult. Pop the cloud timer before the long lava section and try and jump with the blue coins to collect all of them on the way to the goal, and the smiley will appear.

Windward Way

Smiley Flower 1 - At the third floating ping pong ball section just before checkpoint one, you can float up right to the top and egg a shy guy to drop the first flower.

Smiley Flower 2 - During the floating seagull section, stay on the lower partition until you see this easy second flower.

Smiley Flower 3 - After the floating seagulls, hit the blue timer in the ping pong section and collect every blue coin before the time runs out to pop this flower.

Smiley Flower 4 - This pops up when the game asks you to walk towards the foreground of the camera. A red cloud timer is there that you can pop, which starts a puzzle where you have to pick out the right smiley amongst many wrong ones. It’s in the upper left.

Smiley Flower 5 - When you reach the background of the level once more, head up and right to the paper den of the seagulls for this fifth flower, within a cloud.

Smiley Flower 6 - This is during a floating seagull section, the second one. Hit the cloud timer and then pop all four background balloons to grab this smiley.

Smiley Flower 7 - After the floating section, hit up the ping pong balls once more and let it push you up right to the top, and you will see a shy guy far in the distance you need to egg for smiley seven.

Smiley Flower 8 - This is in the final section right before the goal. Keep hopping over the gulls until you see a question cloud, pop it and grab the final flower.

Weighing Acorns

Smiley Flower 1 - This one is fairly tough to figure out. You’ll see an owl with a basket. Sit in it then bounce an egg off the west wall to get this smiley.

Smiley Flower 2 - When you see the first butterfly bug enemy, fly up past the cloud above it to get the next flower.

Smiley Flower 3 - After the owl pulley, hit the red cloud and match an egg to the cloud with the smiley on to pick this one up. 

Smiley Flower 4 - After checkpoint 1, head up rather than head down past the acorns to pop this smiley.

Smiley Flower 5 - Later you’ll see a bed of white flowers with a blue timer cloud underneath the middle one. Hit it and eat all the apples for smiley five.

Smiley Flower 6 - When you’re collecting parts, head up to the right where the acorn owls are, pop the green cloud and get the flower.

Jumping to victory

Smiley Flower 1 - After swinging across the spotty paper balls, float up to your right to hit a wooden ledge with the first smiley. 

Smiley Flower 2 - When you see the first set of monkeys on vines, climb up the first one and head left for the flower.

Smiley Flower 3 - After the set of purple piranha heads, hit the timer to start another whack a mole section. Beat it to drop the third flower.

Smiley Flower 4 - After a set of new piranha heads, there’s a short drop with a flower ready to pick up if you can flutter.

Smiley Flower 5 - Straight after, there’s a raised platform with a blue and red ball, and a timer cloud you can hit to spawn blue coins that drop the fifth flower.

Smiley Flower 6 - Instead of taking the low road, take the high road by riding the vines and hopping on the balls until you get up top where there’s a flower.

Smiley Flower 7 - Once you hit the long section with impermanent flooring and purple piranhas, let the heads destroy the floor until you find the seventh flower in a red ball.

Smiley Flower 8 - Keep going in this section until you have to hop up top and grab this easy flower, but try not to get eaten.

Deceptive Doors 

Smiley Flower 1 - When you see the first blue house, don't go in it, hop up on the roof first for this smiley.

Smiley Flower 2 - This one is very hard to miss, but you have to crouch in the little box and squeeze through to get this flower.

Smiley Flower 3 - The third flower is on the roof of the building where you found the second flower. Hit the red cloud timer and pick out the flower from the mixed up clouds.

Smiley Flower 4 - When you’re moving through the bamboo thicket that has been hollowed, hit the blue timer, eat all of the apples and you can pick up this flower.

Smiley Flower 5 - When you enter the second housing area, switch the blue door so you can expose the flower, then drop down and ping it with an egg.

Smiley Flower 6 - Way later in the level you unlock a door that leads to doors with explosion symbols on the front. Open up the middle door, hit the screen and grab the flower.

Behind the Shoji 

Smiley Flower 1 - The door will eventually reveal a table with a flower underneath that you have to break a box to access.

Smiley Flower 2 - Similarly, there’s another section with boxes to break that leads into a lower area with a flower.

Smiley Flower 3 - Again, you’ll see a boxed off area with a question cloud you need to hit for the third flower.

Smiley Flower 4 - Keep it moving until just before the door splits to two. Pop the boxes above you and grab this flower.

Smiley Flower 5 - This flower is cooped up in a wallpaper platforming area where you have to roll it out to get to the bottom. Do this quickly!

Smiley Flower 6  - As the doors are split, keep it going until you see a blue shy guy. Pop the box next to him and get the coins below to drop this flower.

The Shogun’s Castle

Smiley Flower 1 - At the second section with movable cardboard cutouts, shift red to the side, push blue up and jump on the pad and head right to get this flower.

Smiley Flower 2 - After you pass the spiky tiered boxes, turn around and climb them like stairs for this flower.

Smiley Flower 3 - Once you unlock the door that needs a key, climb the spinning spikey platforms and creep under the door in the top left to get this flower.

Smiley Flower 4 - The fourth flower appears after the first papercraft samurai. Pop the question cloud below the blue shy guy to get this one.

Smiley Flower 5 - Later on this stretch, you want to hop on the middle samurai’s head and pop the cloud timer. Then, collect all the blue coins for the final smiley.
