Giant bowling pins[derived from Japanese] are objects that appear in Kirby's Return to Dream Land and Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe. They only appear in White Wafers - Stage 4 and Dangerous Dinner - Stage 1. Two versions of Giant bowling pins exist: an ice-themed bowling pin, named Giant Ice Pin[Japanese title], appearing in White Wafers and a magma-themed pin, named Giant Lava Pin[Japanese title], which appears in Dangerous Dinner.

The Giant Ice Pin is a large, spiked pin made of ice with red markings and a glowing star symbol on it. Its Halcandra counterpart, the Giant Lava Pin, is similar in height and appears to be made of melted rocks and magma and also dons a star symbol. Giant bowling pins are destroyed using the Snow Bowl Super Ability. Kirby must roll through them, and depending on the amount of pins destroyed, a party ball pops open and gives him a prize in the form of Point Stars and food.
