    Isn’t #43 the tiny toad you have to grow with the magnifying glass?

    • SuperZambezi

      I thought this might be a little confusing. I have them ordered here in order that you find them and not in the order that the Toads number themselves off with. Their numbers are all over the place!

  • Marc Lovallo

    The last Red Rescue Toad is in Redpepper Volcano, in the area where the first Mini Paint Star is. You have to get to him by riding on Draggadon.

  • Danee Dietrich

    I’m still missing one 🙁

  • Gregory Baker

    So, I found all the Blue Rescue Squad BEFORE I found the captain! Any ideas where they went? I went back through the levels and they aren’t where they were initially? Any ideas? I’m stuck and can’t play the game anymore!

    • SuperZambezi

      They should be waiting at HQ in Port Prisma (yellow district)!

  • Stormruler16

    I swear to god the toads dab

  • Pye36

  • C Brothers

    i found all 49 of red rescue squad members too, but the game says one is missing! It doesn’t make sense! It says I only have 48 but I know I got all 49. What do I do?

  • catlover123112

    Wheres # 40 looked everywhere

    • catlover123112

  • Unicorn Derp
