Spring eggs[1] appear in Mario Kart Tour as interactable course elements. They were added to some courses exclusively during the 2023 Yoshi Tour. They come in two sizes, with small spring eggs being scattered on the tracks themselves, and big spring eggs being found on the sidelines. As with Jack-o'-lanterns, players can drive into a spring egg or hit it with an item to obtain bonus points as well as an event token; when hit, small ones are knocked away and the action is displayed on-screen as "Hippity!", while big ones make a brief bobbing motion in place and the interaction is displayed as "Hoppity!" Spring eggs can have either of three designs: some are blue with a Super Star pattern, some are pink with flower motifs, and some are green with flower and bunny motifs.

Spring eggs appear on the following courses:

Small spring eggs may not initially appear on courses, a phenomenon which can be remedied by clearing the Mario Kart Tour app's cache.[2] The procedure only affects the device where it was performed; if the issue is present across multiple devices on which the player uses the app, they need to clear the app's cache on each device separately.
