Yoshi’s Woolly World was a title we reviewed two years ago (Ed: That long??), and rated it one of the best games we’d ever played. Nintendo apparently agreed, because, given the limited install base of the Wii U, they’ve remade the game for Nintendo 3DS, while adding in a whole bunch of new content that the Wii U gamers don’t get. Let’s get our knitting needles out as we review Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World.
Did you know that giraffes can clean their ears with their tongues? Or that in the 1800s, opium was marketed as a way to pacify fussy babies? If you like that, then you may enjoy the other fun factoids cutely drawn by children’s book illustrator Mike Lowery.
Rakoo is a fuzzy critter on a mission for love, so naturally he recruits his friends as wingmen of sorts in his quest to woo his beloved. I grab some friends and controllers and see if I can help this hapless creature find his soul’s dearest wish.
Predation is so very cute if you show it in the way that Alexis Solis does. His series of colourful illustrations for Predator vs. Prey shows doe-eyed hunters sinking their teeth into the flesh of their prey. It’s a bloody cute circle of life.
Andry “Shango” Rajoelina works as a designer in the animation industry and his series of Super Families portraits this time focuses on video game characters.

Check out these and more of the Rajoelina’s cute portraits of video game families after the jump.
You’ve no doubt seen Tony Swatton forge some incredible real life versions of fictional weapons. In this video by the Inspired to Make YouTube channel, the same blacksmithing skills are applied on a much smaller scale. Check out the creator bang out a household nail into a cute mini sword, complete with cross-guard and pommel.
As we’ve seen before kissing can be gross, and in some cases it can be detrimental to your health. Kissing can be awkward too, especially if it’s your first one and more so if you don’t even know the person that you’re about to do it to.
With FIRST KISS, the people over at the fashion label WREN studio asked a bunch of strangers (some of whom are models) to kiss each other and then filmed the intimate moments. Some are cute, others are cringe-worthy and over 20 million people have exhibited their voyeuristic tendencies, so check it out below.

While Ze Frank’s rather informative video made you rethink what you knew about hedgehogs, he neglected to mention that they are in fact the cutest things in the world. Case in point: Darcy the Flying Hedgehog.
Instagrammer/hedgehographer Shota Tsukamoto from Tokyo, Japan named his three-year-old hedgehog after D’arcy Wretzky, the former bass player of The Smashing Pumpkins. Despite the prickly origins of her name, Darcy’s most adorable nature is seen in the multitude of quirky scenes that Tsukamoto’s photographs her in. Have a look at some of our favourite photos of Darcy after the jump.
