This is my personal favourite way: Go to level 3-2. Play the level until you get to the section with 4 bullet bills with a green warp pipe in the middle. Keep hopping on the bullets shot at you without touching the ground (hint: utilize shaking the Wii remote to stay in the air slightly longer). At first you will only gain points, but eventually every ...

Collecting all three star coins on every level in a particular world opens up a corresponding secret level in the correspondingly secret World 9. You need to collect every star coin from all nine worlds to achieve the second and third of the five save file stars, which indicate how much of the game you have completed.

The blue star coins simply signify that you've already collected the star coin before, similar to how power stars become clear and translucent in other Mario games. The coins are used to purchase things in the shop, so there is only a finite number of them -- 3 on each level -- and once collected successfully (as in, you collect it and then complete the ...

Well, there is one thing. You can make the stars on your save file sparkle by never having a Super Guide appear (the green box that rings like a doorbell if you fail to pass a level within 8 attemps). Just not using one doesn't count. Once even one appears, I believe to earn the sparkly stars you have to start over from the last point you saved, so that ...

I usually look to gamefaqs.com. Though they are primarily limited to text-based data they do have a form to submit maps and images (and I think this qualifies). Looking at the New Super Mario Bros. Wii section, I notice that there are already several FAQs that feature the same data collected by your son (though his versions are nicer looking). I would look ...

You could also use them to buy hint movies in peach's castle (at the complete left of world 1). They show certain secrets, such as the location of a secret goal or how to gain infinite 1-ups.

The cannons function much as the 'Warp Zones' of Mario yore. They allow you to skip a few of the world, generally jumping 4 ahead -- World 1 cannon takes you to Jungle World 5, for instance. As to unlocking them, you must find the alternate exit (you can tell from the red ending flag) within one of the levels that make up the world, usually the level ...

There are 5 stars in total. They basically tell you how "complete" your file is. To get Star 1, you have to beat the game. To get Star 2, you have to beat every normal level. To get Star 3, you have to get all (207) Star Coins from the first 8 worlds. To get Star 4, you have to get all (24) Star Coins in World 9. To get Star 5, you have find every secret ...

Each world has 6 possible panel combinations. There is a guide on GameFAQs detailing the different panel combinations, and which ones you should hit to test what the current arrangement is. Also, here's a visual guide to the panels.

For Each cannon, you will have to find a secret exit in a certain level. World 1 to World 5: Level 1-3. (video) Leap with Yoshi just above the ceiling with the hidden tunnel between the second and third coin and dash along the top to the right. World 2 to World 5: Level 2-6. (video) Near the end of the level is a rep pipe high above, but it requires both ...

here a list of all of them and how to unlock them.

There are 14 secret goals to be found in the game. here's the list and where they are.

Go to World 6 and get hit by one of the Bullet Bills on the map to go to that toad-saving minigame. Try to get all the toad balloons without touching any Bullet Bills. The more Bullet Bills are on screen at the end, the more lives you get. I usually get 2-3 lives per attempt and very rarely walk away with none. It's pretty simple and very easy to repeat and ...

Yes, you can, and there are at least a few pipes that are really only accessible in this way, particularly in single player. Here's a video example of one such pipe (Note: this does contain something of an exploration spoiler): ...

The existence of Star Coins serves for many useful purposes, such as buying hints and movies in the castle, getting more points, etc.

Nope. 5 stars is the maximum. You've really done everything! Congratulations! Technically, I suppose you could go and buy all the videos now, but you don't get anything from viewing them all.

You will always know that a secret exit leading to a cannon is in a level if the level on the map has a road connecting to a cannon. In many cases, you should try to keep items, like propeller mushrooms and propeller boxes to get to out of reach areas.

As I said in this question : check this link to help you to find the secret exit. so look here for Wendy's Fortress

Yes, there are secret exits, but I don't believe there's a color to indicate multiple exits. You just have to figure it out, but the hint videos might be able to provide some assistance.
