    Disney Parks will see the arrival new collectible mini ear hats called MousekeEars this Fall. Product developer Megan Kachur talks about their creation.


    “We have been working on the new MousekeEars for over a year,†Megan explained. “We wanted something guests could collect, share or wear. The ear hat is one of the most recognizable Disney Parks merchandise items so it seemed like a natural fit.â€

    Long time Disney Design Group artist Mark Seppala used the artwork he created for last year’s full-size designs as a starting point.

    “Our guests have told us how much they loved the character ear hats we released last year, so that seemed like a good place to start,†said Mark. “The first samples that arrived at our office were spot on; we didn’t need to make many modifications.â€


    The first two MousekeEars collections will be introduced in October. One will contain Disney characters, including Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Pluto and Goofy, while the other collection will feature bright “pop color†hats. Additional designs, including country flags from World Showcase at Epcot, are planned for future release. Hats will be $12.95 each.


    Disney artist Dave Keefer designed the window box packaging for MousekeEars, which resembles a stage (a great way to display the hats). Each hat also comes with a removable chin strap, key chain and hair clip.
