Sling-a-Thing Toad

The Sling-a-Thing Toad is a purple-spotted Toad in Decalburg who runs the Sling-a-Thing (Fling-a-Thing in EUR English versions) stand in Paper Mario: Sticker Star. His stand will open after Mario has collected the Fan Thing in Bouquet Gardens. His job is to convert Things into stickers for free. If Mario is out of Things and talks with the Sling-a-Thing Toad, he will tell Mario to check the wall near him, where the Shady Toad sells Things. The shopkeeper Toad of Decalburg gets jealous of him when he hears that a new shop has just opened. He frequently uses the word "perky", and his motto is "Stay perky".

When tattled, Kersti will comment: "This operation looks pretty shady/doggy, but I have to admit, the thing stickers are pretty amazing." A Red Toad at the Outlook Point runs the same business.

Quotes[edit]

North American version[edit]

  • Well, hi there!
  • No, sir, you've gotta stay perky! And I got the perkiest idea EVER just a bit ago!
  • Do that, and I can cook up a little miracle for you!
  • Ah, look! You have a wonderful thing! My perk sensor can just tell.
  • Now you just take a special thing, face the board in front of you, and sling it as hard as you can!
  • Huh? Oh, sorry--it looks like you don't have enough space left in your album.
  • So?! Pretty darn miraculous, huh?
  • You come over here, you fling a thing, and HEY PRESTO! It becomes a sticker. I call it a "thing sticker" because I'm a bit of marketing genius.
  • Mario, I've got to tell you… You are so lucky to experience this firsthand!
  • How about that! Pretty perky, no? From now on, stickers don't have to be something you find… They can be something you make too.
  • Whenever you find a special thing, you can turn it into a sticker here.
  • Anyway, can't wait to see you again! Stay perky!
  • Stay perky.

European version[edit]

  • Hey, hey! How's it going?
  • Sure, the Sticker Fest was a total disaster, but you can't stay blue about it forever, right?
  • Of course I'm right! You've got to be proactive, like me! I've been working on the greatest idea EVER!
  • Here's the deal, Mario. If you find any interesting…lets call them "things"…out in the world, bring 'em to me.
  • If you do that, I'll show you something miraculous!
  • What's that glint of excitement in your eyes? I'm guessing you've found a wonderful thing then, eh?
  • Go ahead and stand on that little platform over there, please.
  • Now you just take a special thing, face the board in front of you, and fling it as hard as you can!
  • Hm…? Oh, sorry-it looks like you don't have enough space left in your album.
  • So?! Pretty darn miraculous, eh?
  • You come over here, you fling a thing, and HEY PRESTO! It becomes a sticker. I call it a "thing sticker" because I'm a bit of marketing genius.
  • Mario, I've got to tell you - You are so lucky to experience this first-hand!
  • Don't worry about it, though. Just come back once you've either used some stickers or sold them off.
  • How about that! Not too Shabby, right? From now on, stickers don't have to be something you find - they can be something you make too.
  • Whenever you find a special thing, you can turn it into a sticker here.
  • …Hey, even if you don't have any things on you, swing by and we'll talk about it…
  • Anyway, can't wait to see you again! Keep that chin up!
  • See you later!

Trivia[edit]

  • Both "selling things" and "creating thing stickers" are heavily implied to be illegal, referencing real-life black markets.
