Map of Level 5-8
Level map

The level is made up of several irregular pathways, traversed via Long Springs and Blue Lifts. On the top and on the bottom floor, there are also pairs of Split Pipes leading from one side of the stage to the other. Blue Lifts mostly appear on the middle pathway, connecting it with the platforms above. The Cursed Mini Mario starts walking at the right, bouncing off Long Springs and going down a Blue Lift in a loop. The other Minis start at distant points in the level; they are required to grab the Hammers at the top of the stage (on a platform accessible by a Long Spring) and head into the Cursed Mini Mario to turn it normal. With all toys assembled, they should then head for the Goal Door, located in an underground area on the bottom floor accessible with a Blue Lift.

M Coin[edit]

The M Coin is found atop several storied platforms in an area at the left. The Minis can simply use a Blue Lift to reach it.
