Mickey Mouse ears are the perfect Disney souvenir, and the new styles and patterns let you choose a hat that is uniquely yours. Whether you prefer classic Mickey Mouse black, or something a little more colorful, everyone needs a pair!
Disney uses the "Infant," "Youth," "Adult" sizing designation for some ears, but the descriptions are somewhat imprecise. The measurements below are based on the standard black ears, but sizes also vary slightly depending on the color and the factory where they were made.
In general, if you measure from the crown of the hat to the brim (edge), Adult ears measure 5 3/4", Youth ears measure 5 1/4" and Infant ears measure 5" from crown to brim. Adult ears are 22" around the brim, Youth are 21" and Infant are 20".
"Infant" ears are the only size to come with a chin strap in every color / pattern, and are perfect for anyone (babies, kids, cats) who might need a little help keeping their ears on. While these are called "infant" size, they will be very large on babies and you'll be grateful for the chin strap. MOST kids and teens ,and many women, can wear infant size ears with no problem, and we strongly recommend them for dance groups, cheer squads and anyone else who needs them to stay on while being active.
"Youth" ears fit most kids and adults, but only select colors / patterns have chin straps. (See product descriptions)
"Adults" ears tend to be pretty large on most women, and you'll probably also need to use bobby pins or barrettes to keep them on. We recommend these for men, people with broad heads, and as souvenirs that won't really be worn. Many adult ears now come with a chin strap, but this seems to depend on the factory of origin.
Most newer ears are labeled "One Size," and are intended to fit most youth and adults. One Size ears usually include a chin strap.
Many ear hats can be embroidered for an extra charge. See product descriptions for restrictions, as some of the designs can not be embroidered. MouseShoppe now embroiders ears in-house on our own machines. The embroidery is thicker than the "chain stitch" embroidery offered at Disneyland, and we offer more thread colors and personalization options. Standard embroidery is available in your choice of Yellow/Gold, Black, Hot Pink, White, Red or Royal Blue thread.
If you are ordering more that one personalized item, please be very specific in your instructions.
