The most valuable items Hat Kid will come across in her journey.

Name Image Description
Kid's Hat Default
Hat Kid can collect balls of yarn during her adventure, and if enough are collected she can stitch together a new Hat. Each hat has its own special power, such as the Sprint Hat's ability to run quickly.
Hookshot Badge
Hat Kid can pin Badges on her hat for special abilities. The effects of the badges vary in utility from the Hookshot Badge to Mumble Badge. At first Hat Kid can only pin one badge to her hat, but eventually she gains the ability to pin up to three badges.
Time Pieces
Time Pieces are fuel for Hat Kid's spaceship. When the Mafia tried to collect a toll from her for flying above Mafia Town, all of the time pieces were sucked out into space, from where they rained down onto the planet.


Pons are found all over the world and can be found in three different varieties; green, red and rift.

Green Pons
Green Pons are used as currency to buy Badges, set up Relics, and unlock certain acts.

Clusters of green pons can be found aswell: when touched they will create several green pons in a line, and collecting them all quickly will cause something to happen, such as the one in Mafia Town which will cause a staircase to rise.

Heart Pons
Red Pon
Red Pons restore Hat Kid's health by one.
Rift Pons
Rift Pon
Rift Pons, which are special pons found only in purple Time Rifts, are used to to get to the next area within a rift.

You can't make hats out of nothing, and that's where yarn comes in! Yarn balls are scattered across every act, and getting enough of them allows you to stitch new hats. Each hat has its own type of yarn, but you only need one of each type once to make a specific hat. After that you just need enough yarn to make it!
Relics can be found scattered throughout the world, and it's up to Hat Kid to collect them all. Once the Relics have been collected, you may assemble them on a Relic Stand on your ship.
