    Take a look at the first new ear hat ornaments that are coming to Disney Parks this summer. Aaron Babcock, Product Developer for seasonal merchandise, saidthat last year’s ornaments were so popular that they expanded the collection.

    “We were thrilled with the response from our guests about the porcelain ear hats,” said Aaron. “This year, we have significantly expanded the assortment to include hats inspired by villains, princesses, classic characters and even Pixar characters. We’ve also added a tremendous amount of detail to each new ornament.”

    There are approximately 40 new ear hat ornaments. The majority of the hats were designed by Disney Design Group artist Costa Alavezos and professional intern Derrick Lirette. Artist Cody Reynolds contributed the princess ear hat designs. I spoke with Costa about the details found on the ornaments.

    “This year, we made the ornaments out of resin,” explained Costa. “This material allowed us to capture lots of details. By using resin, we could add glitter, decals and other embellishments that can’t be added to porcelain. I was delightfully surprised to see the final hats as each hat has such personality.”

    The hats will be introduced to Disney Parks in the coming weeks, but they will also be found via the online Disney Parks Store.

    Each hat is limited edition with the exception of the princess collection.

    Hmm, it is extremely possible that these will be our Christmas ornaments this year. I guess it depends on how much they want for them.
