  • Before the Propeller Hat was created, Hat Factory's original prize was the EXP Hat, which was simply called "Hat" at the time.[7]

  • The EXP and Kong hats had different designs initially. The EXP's was updated when PR2 was released on Kongregate, while Kong's was changed when the Cowboy and Crown hats were added.

  • The Crown and Cowboy Hats weren't available as Folding at Home prizes until November 2008, being exclusive to moderators and their mode, respectively, until then.
  • While the Santa Hat was made a random prize right after release,[8] the Party Hat wouldn't receive the same treatment until April.[9]
  • When asked if there would be another hat after the Top Hat in a livestream, Jiggmin stated that it would likely be the Aviator Cap from Platform Racing 3, though this was eventually scrapped.[10]
  • The Top Hat was originally given out to users directly from Jiggmin if they sent him an email and he read it on his livestream or had "an awesome level".[11] Jiggmin announced on 2011-06-24 that the hat would soon be winnable in "the ultimate Platform Racing 2 level".[12] A thread was created where users could suggest courses,[13] with "The Golden Compass" by -Shadowfax- being chosen on 2011-09-04.[14]
    • Jiggmin also planned to have multiple levels give out the hat, though this was abandoned.
  • Due to a sizing error, the Moon Hat partially covers the close button on its pop-up screen. Jiggmin was informed of the issue, though justified it by saying "it's just that cool."

  • The Jump Start Hat was announced as an unnamed prize for every player on 2011-06-24 if Jiggmin's Folding at Home team could break into the top 100.[15] The hat's name and ability were revealed on 2012-01-19 once it reached rank 105[16][17], with it being released on 2012-01-30 and given to anyone who logged in.[18] This was changed, however, on 2012-05-02 when Happy Hours were introduced, where it was made a random prize exclusive to the mode.[19]
  • The Jump Start Hat originally gave a full Speed Burst as seen in its announcement video.[20]
    • It also didn't give a Speed Burst at the start of levels, though this was altered during Motley Monday.
  • Jiggmin originally planned for accounts that were two years or older to automatically receive the Top Hat, though this was scrapped when it came to light that the database keeping track of join dates was broken.[21]
    • Instead the hat was briefly given to members whose rank met certain, strict requirements that were never publicly revealed.
  • The Santa Hat originally didn't freeze vanish, crumble, arrow, push and brick blocks, though this was altered when the Ice Wave was added.
  • The Jigg Hat was a Motley Monday idea posted by Tommy 8 on Jiggmin's forum on 2012-12-15.[22] Jiggmin all but confirmed it would be added by posting in the thread asking for a course that combines all Platform Racing levels one day before its announcement.[23]
    • The exact level was initially a secret, with Fred the Giant Cactus creating a course titled "Tresure Map" that required a password pertaining to a typo in Newbieland 2 to play. This course gave multiple hints to the hat's location, being a copy of Buto, placing a "the answer to life, the universe and everything" hint between two pyramids, falling down which lead to the map's ID number.
  • While never officially given out, it is possible to keep an Artifact as a hat, though it doesn't grant extra experience.
