Toad 42: Go fishing! Look for the origami shaped fish and reel it in to find your Toad.

Toad 44: Remember the Souvenir Shop at the start of the area? Head inside and use the Master Key to open the closet in the back. Climb up the steps and close the door behind you to reveal a Toad.
Toad 45: After you defeat Rubber Band, return to the tower and go up to the bell. Start smacking it while the nearby Toad counts the number of hits.
