    I recommend getting the 1st mushroom for this one if you think you may mess up & not kill Birdo and pick up the crystal in time.

    The 2nd mushroom is just past where the cherries & Starman are collected and would kill your chance of killing Birdo in time so unless you have a bunch of lives to spare & are afraid you'll fail, you should avoid it.

    I tried to get as many lives as I could getting to 4-2, grabbed both mushrooms so I could effortlessly go back over the spikes... got it on the first go after committing suicide.

    Took me 5 or 6 tries at most with 30 lives in stock.

    HOW TO DO IT:
    1) grab the 2 mushrooms from the level and die BEFORE entering Birdo's lair
    2) once back, grab the 1st cherry then remove the maskass from the cart while still on the plateform (don't keep it in hands)
    3) jump on the cart BEFORE it gets to the spikes (quick timing)
    4) stay on the cart until it touches the right ledge and goes back left
    5) on the way back you'll only need to grab the star when falling to the right from the cart in the spikes (need of a good timing)
    6) run like a madman (beware for the super jump)
    7) jump ON birdo to kill him then grab the egg at the same time you go down from the jump (quick move in mid air)

    ADVICES:
    1) Use Toad for this one (you don't have to crouch during the cart part + he's faster)
    2) take the 5 cherries, in order, from left to right
    3) if you can't get birdo's egg before it wears off, just go back to the begining of the previous "room"... go straight to the left... you'll only loose 2 hearts (hedgehogs + spikes) if you're fast
    4) if you die, you'll get back to the last door you went in (at the right of the spikes)... so loose 2 hearts going back to the left and retry the all process...
    5) you can play from 1-1 to 4-2 to get ~20-25 lives (coins + 1ups) if you're lucky. It will give you more time to master the right way to get it!

    GOOD LUCK!

    This is pretty easy. I failed the jump after the door as toad, then ducked to super jump and still made it.
