Probably made for 5 year olds, like Yoshi's Wooly World. That game is so easy compared to Yoshi's Island.
While Yoshi's Wooly World was easy if you were just trying to plow through the game, there was certainly challenge there if you wanted to get everything, especially later levels in the game - going too easy also hampered your efforts to 100% a level as well. I'm not saying this is Contra or Dark Souls, but Yoshi was definitely made with everyone in mind, not just 5 year olds.
