In games(like some of the Harvest Moon series) anything a npc is given by the charcter will go in their pocket, dispite what it is or it's size: Live fish, food or beverages, fire/flame, ect. This also happens in Animal Crossing. Everything goes into the player's pocket: Axs aand fishing poles, live bugs/fish, entire outfits, dressers, large tvs, tables, ect.
