Pauline's items are collectibles in the game Donkey Kong. When Donkey Kong kidnaps Pauline, she loses three of the items she has: her hat, umbrella and purse. When Mario sets out to save Pauline from Donkey Kong, he can also optionally recover her lost items, which can be found throughout the game in all but the first stage. Each item is worth 300 points in level 1, 500 in level 2 and 800 in subsequent levels.
In the NES port of the game, the hat does not exist and is sometimes replaced by a second umbrella. All three items are featured as optional collectible items in the 1994 Game Boy title Donkey Kong. In this game, collecting all the items rewards Mario with up to five extra lives upon completing the level. In Classic NES Series: Donkey Kong for the GBA, the first appearance is of Pauline's Bag is in level 2. In Donkey Kong for the Game Boy, a minigame can be played if all of Pauline's items are collected.
In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the items appear in the retro stage 75m, which is based on the original Donkey Kong. Touching the items causes a sound effect to play and makes them disappear for a while, but it does not affect gameplay.
