Red Yoshi holding an umbrella.

Umbrellas are objects in Yoshi's Story. Yoshis will usually get them when on a large cliff, and the umbrella will allow them to glide, giving Yoshi the opportunity to collect Heart Coins and fruit. The player uses the control stick to control the direction the umbrella falls. When Yoshi reaches the bottom of the cliff, the umbrella is dropped.
