Pixel Toad locations can be found in each and every Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker level after you've completed that level for the first time.
You'll need to locate, and then tap, the Pixel Toad sticker to collect it, and while some are fairly easy to spot, with the little sticker in fairly plain sight from the off, plenty of others are pretty well hidden.
With that in mind, here's our roundup of all 64 Pixel Toad locations for Episodes 1, 2 and 3 - be sure to see our Captain Toad walkthrough to Gem locations, Star locations and tips and our guide to Captain Toad Gold Mushroom locations and bonus challenge solutions for plenty more on Treasure Tracker, too!

3-25 Deep Space Gyromajig Pixel Toad location
Probably the hardest one to reach, under the second Conkdor on the grey and red-coloured floor. You need to remove the Conkdor to acquire the Pixel Toad, and there aren't any turnips on that level. To do so, work your way from that red-and-grey Pixel Toad level to the green-floored level, and pluck a Turnip from the pair of pluck patches between the other two Conkdors there.
Carry it to the blue P button furtherst away from the patch where you got it, to drop yourself onto the blue level. From there, head to the P button in the top right, to drop onto the green level again, and carry it over to the Conkdor and hit it with a good throw to remove it, and clear the way to the Pixel Toad.
3-26 Magma Road Marathon Pixel Toad location
Hopping in and our of the lava near the end of the level, by the small ring with some coins on it. To get a much easier shot at it, head to the first glass cannon (left at the fork) and fire yourself over to the section on the left of the level.
From there, climb into the cannon at the end of that area but don't fire yourself out of it. Look back over to where you came from and you'll see it hopping in and out of the lava in the distance.
3-27 Scalding Scaffold Sinkhole Pixel Toad location
Near the end of the level, under the pair of stacked gold coins in the centre of the area - collect the coins to reveal it.
3-28 Wingo's Whackdown Pixel Toad location
On the right hand side of the very first bridge you cross - tuck yourself into a safe area and it's easy to spot.
And with that, you're all done - congratulations on collecting all 64 Pixel Toads!
