You can get 1ups by hitting flying White Shy Guys.

Eggs

In Yoshi's New Island there are different coloured eggs and each one signifies something different. A purple egg gives you 1 Red Coin, a green egg gives you 1 Gold coin, a yellow egg gives you 3 Gold coins and a red egg gives you 2 Stars.

Enemies and Egg Blocks

Make sure you use eggs wisely as there is no way of knowing how long it will be before you next encounter enemies or egg blocks to produce more eggs.

Baby Mario

If you lose Baby Mario you need to find him quickly before all your Yoshi Star Power depletes and Yoshi loses one life. If the Yoshi Star Power counter which is located on the top right corner of the screen reaches zero Yoshi will lose one life. You can though increase your Star Power up to 30 while searching for Baby Mario by collecting stars.

Binoculars

Whenever they are available jump into a floating pair of binoculars as they allow you to use the 3DS gyroscope which enables you to get a better view of the stage making it easier to break pipes and collect coins with a Mega Eggdozer which is a very large Yoshi egg.

Replay Levels

There is no time limit so there is no need to rush when searching a stage looking for hidden Red Coins, Smiley Flowers and other objects. You can also replay levels.

Gold Medal Awards

There is a goal ring which is made up of flowers at the end of every castle and non-fortress level. When you pass through a level each of the flower spots will fill in for every flower you collected (up to 5) on that run of the level. ALL the activated flowers will turn into medals if after passing through the goal ring the roulette stops on an activated flower. When you get a certain numnber of medals you will earn a reward. The medals do not have to be earned on different levels, it is possible to get ALL 30 by playing a single level multiple times.
Medals:
The Goal Roulette lands on an activated flower.
