Carrots are the most common item pickup and the main currency used in Bunny Skate. Skating over a normal carrot gives the player +1 carrots, skating over a large carrot gives the player +5 carrots.
Chests reward carrots if the player owns all non-legendary hats.
Carrots can be used to purchase hats; 500 carrots for common hats and 2500 carrots for rare hats.
Carrots can be used to purchase an extra life (if the player has reached greater than 100 distance). The option appears upon death if the player has no extra lives. The initial cost is 250 carrots, and doubles with every life purchased. The cost for extra lives resets back to 250 after the player starts a new run.
