Deku Sticks can be found almost everywhere—by killing enemies, chopping bushes, smashing rocks and vases, or even buying them in shops. They can be used as a sword-like weapon, though they break easily, or torches. They can only be used when Link is a child.
The Kokiri Sword is the basic sword that Link is able to use while a child. It is small but effective. Link finds it in the Forest Training Center near the beginning of the game.
The Master Sword is the sword pulled from the stone which travels Link through time. It is more powerful than Kokiri Sword, and can only be used as Adult link.
The Giant's Knife can be purchased from Medigoron, a smith in Goron City. It requires two hands but is apparently not very well made as it breaks easily after being struck on a solid object or enemy five times. Link can use it only as an adult. It disappears when Link receives the Biggoron Sword.
The Biggoron Sword is received from Biggoron after the completion of a rather long and complicated trading sequence. The sword is a reward to Link for getting Biggoron Eye Drops to cure the eye irratation caused by the fumes from Death Mountain. It's the most powerful sword in the game but it requires two hands and can only be used when Link is an adult.

The Bullet Bag comes with the Fairy Slingshot and is where Link keeps the Deku Seeds he uses as ammunition for that weapon. It originally holds 30 Deku Seeds but upgrades in the Lost Woods and the Hyrule Castle Town Shooting Gallery can increase its size to hold 40 and then 50 seeds. When Link is an adult, the Bullet Bag is replaced by a Quiver.

The Hylian Shield is a large, adult-sized shield (though Link can use it as a child) made of metal and bearing the crest of the Hylian Royal Family. It can be purchased at the Bazaar in Hyrule Castle Town or found in a tomb in Kakariko Graveyard. As a child, Link can only curl up and use the shield to protect his back as he is too small to use it normally.
The Mirror Shield is a large shield made of highly polished metal inscribed with the symbol of the Gerudo race which can reflect magical attacks, as well as light. It is the big treasure in the Spirit Temple. Link cannot use this shield as a child.
Tunics and boots
The Kokiri Boots are Link's standard boots that he begins the game in. They fit him as both a child and an adult.
The Hover Boots look like a pair of standard brown boots with two golden wings attached to their soles. They have little traction making it difficult for Link to walk without sliding everywhere but they allow him to walk suspended on air for a few seconds. Link can wear these boots only when an adult. They are the big treasure in the Shadow Temple.
The Iron Boots look like a pair of standard brown boots with two slabs of metal attached to their soles. They are very heavy making it impossible for Link to run while wearing them but they allow him to walk on the bottom of bodies of water and provide extra traction on ice. Link can wear these boots only when an adult. They are the big treasure in the Ice Cavern.
The Kokiri Tunic is Link's standard tunic that he begins the game in. It is green and apparently quite stretchy as it fits him as both a child and an adult.

Unlike the Kokiri Tunic, the Goron Tunic only fits Link when he's an adult. Also, it makes the wearer immune to the effects of extreme heat, like that encountered in Death Mountain Crater. The Goron Tunic is received as a reward for stopping Link the Goron from rolling about. (It can also be purchased in the shop in Goron City.)
The Zora Tunic looks similar to the Kokiri Tunic expect it is blue instead of green, and is made from fish gills. Unlike the Kokiri Tunic, the Zora Tunic only fits Link when he's an adult. Also it confers the ability to breath underwater upon its wearer. The Zora Tunic is received as a reward for melting the red ice around King Zora. (It can also be purchased in the shop in Zora's Domain.)
The Goron's Bracelet is a bracelet made of gold with the symbol of the Goron race on it, and is received as a gift from Darunia as thanks for cheering him up. The Goron Bracelet gives the wearer the ability to pick Bomb Flowers. Both child and adult Link can wear the Goron's Bracelet. It disappears once Link receives the Silver Gaunlets.
The Silver Gaunlets are the big treasure in the child portion of the Spirit Temple. The Silver Gaunlets greatly improve the strength of their wears allowing them to lift or push most rocks and boulders. They can only be used by adult Link and they disappear once he receives the Golden Gaunlets.
The Golden Gaunlets are the big treasure in the Shadow Room of Ganon's Castle. The Golden Gaunlets greatly improve the strength of their wears allowing them to lift or push almost every object in the game. They can only be used by adult Link.
The Silver Scale is an aptly named silver scale encased in a blue sphere of water that Link receives as the prize for winning the Zora's Domain diving game. It allows Link to stay underwater for an extended period of time and can be used when he is either a child or an adult. It disappears once Link receives the Golden Scale.

The Fairy Ocarina a momento given to link by Saria when Link leaves Kokiri Forest for the first time. Link is able to play songs on it until he receives the Ocarina of Time and it disappears.
The Wallet is where Link holds his rupees. Link begins the game with a Child's Wallet which holds up to 99 rupees. Collecting 10 Gold Skulltula Tokens earns Link the Adult Wallet which can hold up to 200 rupees and 30 Gold Skulltula Tokens earns him the Giant Wallet which holds up to 500 rupees.
Gold Skulltula Tokens are the tokens Link receives after killing a Gold Skulltula to prove that he killed one. Once he has fifty he can go and visit the cursed brothers' house in Kakariko Village and he'll receive a heartpiece. Once he has a hundred they'll supply him with three hundred rupees. Earning ten enables him to get the Wallet (above).
