Yoshi Doll
"This small doll is a miniature image of the most popular character on Koholint Island. Everyone wants a Yoshi Doll! Where on earth are you going to get hold of this doll?! And once you have one, what can you do with it?"

The Yoshi Doll is the first item in the game's Trading Quest. It is won as a prize from the Trendy Game in Mabe Village,[1] wherein Link must operate the game's claw and grab the doll. Unlike the other item prizes in the Trendy Game Shop, the Yoshi Doll sits in the middle of the platform off of the conveyor belt.

The Yoshi Doll can be given to Mamasha in Mabe Village, who asks if she can give it to her baby.[3][4] In exchange, Link is given the Ribbon, the next item in the Trading Sequence.[1]
