The Beetle Box is a special item in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. It is purchased from the Snifster operating Beetles Are Us in Seaside Town. With it, Mario can catch and store Beetles caught in the Beetle Race on Booster Hill before turning them back in to the store to be valued. A new Beetle Box must be purchased each time the beetles are turned in if the player wants to play the minigame again, with it costing 100 coins the first time and 50 coins on subsequent plays.
