Rescuing Mansion Toad Pt 1.png

In Shroom City (Snif City), there is a Toad firmly stuck to the sign on the entrance of the city. Go to the first building you see in the city, which has a Snifit sitting on a seesaw to the left of it. Go around the east side of the building to find a path behind it. Jump up on the crates to reach the top of the building, then jump off where there is a mark on top of the building to land on the seesaw.

The Snifit will go flying off and hit the Shroom City signboard, and several items and a folded-up Toad will fall off. Hit him with the Hammer to rescue him. He'll tell you to visit his mansion in Toad Town.
