Leela wants to know: which hat do you like?

Multi-color two poms little girl hat

Hats are where it’s at now, with Old Man Winter on the way. Little girls everywhere are presented with the challenge of choosing the right hat to get them through the chilly days ahead.

So I put two hats to the test by an adorable and very discerning almost-three-year-old little girl, Leela.

Adorable brown earflap hat for girls

Leela lives in Toronto, Canada. Here she models for you both hats in size 3-10 years. (Beanie Designs is based in Georgia but ships worldwide, in case you didn’t know.)

Earflap flower hat or multi-color two poms hat?

Both hats are warm and cozy for the coming winter months, but here’s where they differ:

The multi-color two poms hat is soft and floppy. Leela’s mom says, This hat is adorable! It’s light, super soft, hugs her head rather than gripping it and doesn’t seem the least bit itchy. Leela loves it!”

The brown and pink earflap hat is crocheted, so it has more structure and thickness. This makes it a little less stretchy, but the chunkier weave also gives rise to great breathability.

Leela’s mom comments this one is a “little bit heavier and the weave is a tad bulkier. But it’s still light and soft, and she really likes the flower on it.”

She also notes that the earflap hat “is a bit bigger than the other one so I imagine the first one will get more use this season.”

Leela is not quite three yet, and both hats were sized for 3-10 year olds. However, my thought is that the multi-color two poms hat will fit easily through a range of sizes simply because it can be worn with the pom poms flopped down when your little girl is small or with the hat completely filled out on a bigger head.

The earflap hat will still work at the younger range, but you’ll want to make sure it is tipped back on your little girl’s head. And of course those earflaps mean you can fasten it on for stay-put convenience through snow fights, skating practice and all manner of horsing around outside.

    She look cute on both! infact she make the hats look good. I Like the multi color on her but she might need the earflap to cover those ears when it’s super cold outside.
