Whispering Woods Toad Locations
Below are all 12 Toads found in the Whispering Woods:
Toad 1: This one is required to progress. After reviving Grandsappy, enter the next area to find this one stuck in a bush.
Toad 2: Open up the first white tent to reveal a crumbled Toad.
Toad 3: A second crumbled Toad can be found on the swing. Whack it to bring it down.
Toad 4: Yank the Yellow Toad out of the tree stump near the campfire.
Toad 5: Whack the tree to the left of the campfire to bring down a Toad.
Toad 6: This Toad somehow got stuck under one of the tree stools at the picnic area. Pull him out!
Toad 7: Whack the plate with the… egg on it? Doesn’t matter since it’s really just a Toad.
Toad 8: Stuck in a pile of leaves in front of the cabin.
Toad 9: Walk to the left of the cabin near the 10-Coin.
Toad 10: See the flower bin missing flowers in front of the cabin? Walk underneath it and jump to reveal a folded flower. Hit that with your hammer to reveal the Toad.
Toad 11: Pull this one out of the pile of wood to the right of the cabin.
Toad 12: This Toad can’t be rescued until waaaay later, like after Chapter 3 later. Once the yellow streamer is gone and you’ve cleared the fog in The Great Sea at Bonehead Island, head to the area between quadrants C3 and D3. Chat with the Shy Guy there, then use the Super Marino to dive underwater. Grab the shiny shell on the left, then pick it up when it’s on the boat.
Return the BBQ area of Whispering Woods and you’ll notice there is now a metal crate over the unlit campfire. There’s also a red magic circle where the pile of stacked wood was at. Throw the shell onto the metal grate to get it cooking. Once the shell pops open, a Toad will run out!

Whispering Woods Collectible Treasure Locations
Below you’ll find a list of all three Whispering Woods Collectible Treasure locations:
Collectible Treasure #1: When you first see it, walk past it since you can’t walk over the spikes. In the next area, pull the vine lever of the tree in the middle to release giant leaves nearby. Hit the leaves to briefly reveal an icon on its back. Match the leaves of the same icon to get the item. Completing all the matches will drop a Super Star that once touched will grant you invincibility for a short time. Use this time to run through the spikes to get to the chest!
Collectible Treasure #2: Reach the lake and continue on to the left side. The treasure chest rests near the talking tree.
Collectible Treasure #3: Also a collectible you can’t get until after removing the yellow streamer. In fact, you have to get Toad 12 rescued first as he is the owner of the cabin. Once rescued, head inside the cabin and open the chest for your collectible treasure!
Whispering Woods Block Locations
Below are all 10 Question Blocks found in the Whispering Woods:
Block 1: After using the 1000-Fold Arms for the first time in the Whispering Woods, cross through the inside of the fallen tree to get to the block containing a Mushroom.
Block 2: In the darker area of the woods where you can hear whispers in the background, cover the not-bottomless hole on the right side to access the block containing a Coin Bag.
