Make People Smile with a Silly Bear Ski Hat

Fun hats always make me smile, whether they're on other people's heads or my own. They show the wearer's goofy side, and I think that's always a good quality to have.

I think they also make you -- the one wearing that silly hat -- seem more approachable. I mean, look at the nice guy below, in the fuzzy bear topper. Wouldn't YOU want to get to know him?

So, that said, if you don't want people to smile at or talk to you, better not wear one of these.

Anyhow, here I'll show you my favorite cool ski hat in the sorta silly department that will not only keep heads warm but add some extra fun to the snow play and cold weather season, along with the closest matches I can find (since I bought mine and my husband's locally). Or, if you'd rather make your own plush topper much like this one, you'll find video instructions below.

My Top Pick: A Bear Head for Your Head

MY man wears one. See--->

This is Jer in one of his favorite hats (with one of his favorite wee cubs -- his nephew). I bought it for him for Christmas a couple of years ago at the state fair, and he wears it everywhere when it's cold. No, not because I tell him to--because he's got much more fuzz on his chin than on his head.

This soft, warm creature has slits in the flaps, so the poms can be crossed under the chin -- put a pom through the hole -- for a secure fit when skiing or enjoying other snow play activities, or attached over the top. Or the poms can just hang loose like the Jer Bear is modeling for you here.

Poms Crossed

Cross the danglies under your chin and pop the pom through the hole for a secure fit.

If You Like The One Jer Has...

Here's basically the same hat in brown. These are really inexpensive, but Jer and I give them high marks for being really comfortable and very warm. And although the price might be considered "cheap," the quality isn't. Jer has worn his bear a LOT, and it still looks new.

But if brown bears aren't your particular creature of choice, you'll find a bunch more soft, fuzzy critters you can wear on your head where this one comes from, including a black and white plush panda hat. There's also a foooox, a tigerrrrr, a bunnyyyy ... um ... oh, a frog, and so on and so forth. Check 'em out and maybe collect the whole menagerie--a different critter hat for each day of the week.


You Don't Have to be a Bears Fan

Of the Chicago Bears that is. You just have to like bears.

This is technically the team mascot hat, but you don't have to tell anyone if you don't want to. For all they'll know, it's just a cute, fuzzy, warm hat with danglies, pretty much just like ours. This one just has a different look in its eyes--a wee bit more fierce, you might say.

Sticking with the Bear Theme, Check Out This REALLY Fuzzy Specimen

I think this is so cute. This soft, furry hat-scarf-mitten combo is made of acrylic fabric, which is a soft and lightweight alternative to wool. With a smooth satin polyester lining, this piece of bear is not only warm but also feels good on your head and arms.

For those who are into details, here are the specs....

  • Head circumference: 22 inches;
  • Length from ears to paws: 36 inches
  • Warm fuzziness: Immeasurable

There's an Adorable Black Bear Style Too....

Have no fear: no fuzzy bears were harmed in the making of this warm and toasty hoodie. This one is a half hood, see, because it doesn't have scarf or mittens.

Oh, and in case you're concerned about smelling like a bear, have no fear; the faux fur does not have any weird odor, and that's a very good thing.

Now, doesn't SHE look like she's having fun?


And check out THIS one! It almost looks real....

      These ARE funny hats. I used to get funny hats for the kids, but it is a rare circumstance where older folks would wear them. But these are cute and could lighten up a crowd!

      Great collection. My sister and her husband got some awesome hats from Norway for their wedding, they had the logo from a popular Norwegian candy bar on them and we couldn't help but laugh!

      These are all so cute. Don't need them in Florida though.

      No, but I might... I think. It doesn't get that cold where I live, so I guess I won't get the chance. Hey, where is your photo of you wearing one? Sure would be a selling point.
