From StrategyWiki, the video game walkthrough and strategy guide wiki
An important part of the game is the trading of items, leading up to the discovery of the Magnifying Glass, which Link needs to read the book called "Dark Secrets And Mysteries Of Koholint" at the Library.
- The first item is the Yoshi Doll, obtained in the Trendy Game in Mabe Village.
- Trade with Mamahl at the Quadruplets' house (the big house next to the Dream Shrine) for the Ribbon.
- Trade with Mini-Bow Wow (inside Madam MeowMeow's doghouse in Mabe Village) for the Dog Food.

- Trade with Kiki the Monkey (near Kanalet Castle) for the Stick.
- Trade with Tarin (in the Ukuku Praire) for the Honeycomb.
- Trade with Chef Bear of Animal Village for the Pineapple.
- Trade with Papahl in the Tal Tal Mountains for the Hibiscus.
- Trade with Christine the Goat in Animal Village for the Letter.
- Trade with Mr. Write for the Broom.
- Trade with Grandma Ulrira in Mabe Village (sometimes in Animal Village) for the Fishing Hook.
- Trade with the Fisherman (under a bridge in Martha's Bay) for the Necklace (Note: This was a bikini top in the Japanese and original, non-colored European version).
