Hidden Treasure Boxes
Mushroom Kingdom Boxes
There are three treasure boxes hidden in the Mushroom Kingdom.
Inside the castle: The Treasure Box hidden inside the Mushroom Kingdom Castle can only be reached when you enter the castle for the first time. When you enter the castle and talk Toad, follow him up the stairs and jump on his head BEFORE he enters the first door. Then, jump on top of the door (there's a tiny ledge to stand on) and hop up to reveal the invisible Treasure Box. Toad won't ever return to this hall, so this is the only chance you'll get to reach this box. Good luck!
Item Shop's basement: There are two Treasure Boxes located in the basement of the Items Shop in the Mushroom Kingdom. First talk to the person in the basement and follow his orders. When he tells you to jump, you'll find the first box. Then, hop on the guy's head -- no kidding -- and let him carry you to the upper-right corner of the room. Jump up to reveal the second Treasure Box.
