In this Paper Mario: The Origami King guide, we’ll help you find every collectible, hidden block, and repairable hole throughout Toad Town.

Toad Town collectibles locations – First visit

There are 1 Toad, 16 Not-Bottomless Holes, 13 Collectible Treasures, and 9 ? Blocks in Toad Town.

Toad Town is self-contained, so its boundaries are pretty clear. You’ll be returning here throughout the game, so we’ll make sure to call any areas you have to progress past to open up these collectibles.

Back outside, head to the right. In the seating area for the coffee shop, hit the umbrella with your hammer to release a 1,000-Fold Arms Magic Circle. Use it to pull a section of wall down.

Use the boxes on the right side of the coffee shop to climb to the roof, and then jump across to the umbrella and tab you pulled down to reach the scaffolding around the second floor. The door into the mansion is locked (and will remain locked until you find its owner much later), so continue up to the roof.

Defeat the Paper Macho Goomba on the roof to free the Sniffit inside. It’ll give you the Collectible Treasure No. 6 – Coins.

? Block 9 of 9

As soon as you enter the ruins of Peach’s Castle, take the left path. The final ? Block in this area is at the end.

Toad 1 of 1

After you free Luigi from his intradimensional prison, you’ll be able to head to the right and out the other side of Peach’s Castle. Just as you exit, you’ll hear (read?) a voice calling from a tower. Knock down the Folded Soldier at the top, and then defeat it. You’ll get a 1,000-Fold Arms Magic Circle. Use that to pop open the tower and rescue the Toad inside.

Toad Town collectibles locations – After Picnic Road

You can only reach the final Not-Bottomless Hole after you save the Accessories Shop owner in Picnic Road.

Not-Bottomless Hole 16 of 16

Once you’ve rescued the Toad that runs the Accessories Shop, return to Toad Town and follow them inside. The Not-Bottomless Hole will be on the left.

Just to the north of the red brick building near the dock, there’s a hidden alley. Head through it to the right and you’ll be on a dock. Hit the barrel at the end of the dock to meet Monty Mole. After you beat each of the game’s bosses, he’ll sell you Collectible Treasures of:

Once you free the Toads in Shroom City (in the Sandpaper Desert), one of them — a yellow one — will return to the mansion in Toad City and unlock the upstairs door — the one we passed on our way to Collectible Treasure 2 above. Collectible Treasure No. 13: Log Cabin is in the treasure chest inside.
