WTF – Bear Hat with Built in Paw Mittens

Winter time is here! Anyone else start playing Christmas carols? CHRISTMAS TIIIIIIME IS HEEEEEERE! That’s our text-rendition of the Charlie Brown Christmas song, Martina’s favourite Christmas song ever. (I lied. She actually hates that song, and hates it more when I sing it. I wonder how she feels about me writing it. Update: I asked her. She hates that, too).

Anyways, it’s now perfect timing to do this week’s Wonderful Treasure Find on this bear hat with mittens. We were lucky enough to have this review sponsored by ToFebruary, who sells awesome cute Korean stuff (as well as stuff that you see in Korean dramas, like jewelry and clothing…Martina has the Boys Before Flowers necklace from this shop…yay!) And this product is so highly relevant, since, well, ’tis the season for winter hats. Might not be the season for polar bear hats that look like they’re eating your head, you might say, but you’re wrong! We’ve seen lots of these hats around in Korea, and it’s about time we talk about them!

Couple of things: 1) There are more than just bear hats with bear mittens in Korea. We’ve seen dragons, frogs, Pikachus, Mickeys, etc. Do adults wear them? Irrelevant. Martina does. And perhaps some quirky people. But it’s better to be quirky than it is to be boring. Pikachu hats FTW! 2) Can anyone else confirm the mitten-string theory we talked about in our video? We’ve seen soooooo many people in Korea wearing stringed mittens with the strings on the outside. Totally defeats the purpose of the string!

And on that note, it’s giveaway time! We haven’t done a giveaway in a realllllly long time. We were in Canada for a bit, and then last week we did our special Fan Mail Candy episode, and so now it’s finally time for us to give this stuff away! Just in time for Christmas as well since you can always give it to one of your Asiaphile friends :D “Merry Christmas! Here’s some Asian stuff courtesy of some nerdy YouTubers!” Well, don’t say it like that. Add more loooove.

To win the care package, tell us what else you would use the bear hat for besides just the obvious one, which is hugging it…I mean, wearing it. Yes, our questions are ridiculous, but that’s because we’re creative fartsy people. So there! And, yes, this question can be answered here as well. Just make sure you leave your YouTube username in your answer, because we – as always – only pick winners from our YouTube subscribers. Huzzah!

And on that note: our bloopers! We cut out some long rambles. Sorry if we were a bit off today. We stayed up till 3AM last night working on this video AND K Crunch, which we’ll upload tomorrow morning. And we woke up at 8AM to get back to work. Been one hell of a week, though! We’ve got a majorly cool announcement coming with K Crunch tomorrow, so make sure you don’t miss it!

  1. :D I would use this hat for two purposes:

    1.) I could keep my chinchilla in one of the pockets. He misses me since I’m at college so what’s a better way to sneak him in my dorm than a bear hat mitten combo thing?! To distribute the weight I’d put lots of raisins in the other mitten thing, my chinchilla loves raisins(he lives for them)!!

    2.) Obviously the second use for this hat is to pick up boys. When I put the hat on boys will be like “is that a bear? what?” then they come closer and I’m like “RAWR I AM NOT A BEAR BUT A GIRL, NOW YOU SHALL DATE ME” and then they run away crying. Effective!

  2. I would use it as a basket and I wou ld put stuff to eat in it. Like when I’m sitting in front of my computer and playing games,I don’t want to get up ,to get myself something to eat. So in there I would put all the stuff I like to eat :))

  5. I believe the bear hat could also be used as a purse! All you’d need to do is tie the paws together, and you’ve got a bag that you can put your stuff in. Or you could perhaps carry a book in it? If you tie the paws to the bottom of the hat, you might be able to use it as a backpack as well. You could also use it as a grocery bag, if you only needed a few things. It could be used as a uni-slipper, lol you could just stick it on your feet if you’re underneath of a blanket and your feet are freezing, like mine usually are. If you’re not using the paws as mittens, you could always throw your chapstick and cell phone in it. It looks like it might be deep enough for that. And of course, you can still use it as a hat, and do a photoshoot with it and pretend you’re a k-pop idol! xD  It could also be part of your super terrifyingly cute halloween costume! :D You could also put it on a Spudgy and watch him run around with it on!

  7. I would use this hat as candy-saddlebags on my mom’s huge horse (seriously, he’s bigger than his mom horse!)! I would put it on the saddle in front of me so that the paws hung down to the side of him (okay, his name is Magic), and then whenever I wanted candy, I’d just pull the arm up. It would also work for anything else wrapped up in individual packages. Or maybe even clementines!

    BUT WAIT
    ORDER NOW
    AND YOU ALSO GET
    AN AVOCADO RIPENER

    Tired of waiting for those rock-hard avocados to ripen?
    I know I am!
    Don’t want to leave them at the mercy of fruit flies?
    WHO DOES!?
    Put them under the head part of this bear hat scarf while you ride your big big Magic pony, and they’ll be ripe in no time.

    fine print: avocados will not ripen much faster under this hat, but it will be fun to ride around with them on a horse. hat also works for warming canteloupe or bunches of grapes. beware of grape juice.

    P.S. My youtube name is vinny4969m! :)
    P.S. That is me and Magic down there. vvvvvvvvv

  8. I’ll tie the paws/mittens in a knot so I can make the hat as a cute shoulder or sling bag ^_^ Another thing that I can practically do is use the mittens as pockets while I am wearing the hat.

  9. You can hang it on your neck(you can tie the mittens around your neck) and use it as a basket for candies!! And then you can go around, eat candies and be cool!

    Haha I know it’s kinda lame xDD

  11. I think us eatyourkimichi fans killed the tofebruary.com site. I can’t access it, I keep getting error 404. Geez I hope we didn’t break it!

    Well I do roller derby so I would put the bear hat over my helmet and the paws over my hands and wrist guards and use the said bear hat as an excuse for some aggressive mauling—er, I mean, booty blocking! Hey um Martina, you know there is a roller derby league in Korea? Check them out at http://www.facebook.com/ROKD.Republic.Of.Korea.Derby , AND the first ever world roller derby cup is about to kick off in a few days in Toronto and Team Canada is looking very good, I’m barracking for them when they vs France on Friday! :D

  12. I would shoot a Music Video using the “hat” as a wickedly nasty
    hat/bikini (paws cover the bottom bits, “arms” cover the nips). Of
    course I would need to get Lady Gaga on board – no one else would were anything that crazy….and Martina would need to write an awesome fuzzy
    bikini song…

  13. I am a surgical instrumentator and it would be perfect when I’m in surgery, it would protect the hair from contaminating the surgical instruments and I could use the pow as a mask, and be super cute as well :)

    • On a side note, are you reading the books?  I’m on book 4 now, halfway through.  It’s pretty monkey balls awful.  Book 1 great, book 2 monkey balls, book 3 pretty good, book 4 mega monkey balls.

  20. I would use it for…

    Since i’m a pretty big girl, im going to wear it (rap) the bear hat built in mittens around my head or parts of my body that i want to loose the weight from haha. Since the hat’s purpose is to make you warm; i would sit around or walk around with the hat rap on places that i want to loose the weight from. The hat will help me sweat and BOOM! There goes 60pounds!!! Loosing the pound already! hahaha *So what i’m saying is, that I would use the hat to shed some of these jigglyness of mine haha

  21. Use it as a Christmas tree topper. That way instead of a guardian angel or a guiding star, children can imagine a polar bear getting ready to pounce if they touch their presents.

  22. You could use it as a really awesome, furry, cute purse/shoulder bag!!
    And pretend to have slain the polar bear, and that you wear it as a trophy, like King Leonidas in 300 with his wolf^^

  32. Put it over the doorway to your mancave. Nothing says mancave like the carcass of a carnivorous animal.

  33. I’d use it to keep my dog warm. He got completely shaved for the ‘extremely hot summer’ we are supposed to have; but it’s turned horribly wet and cold. So it would be a replacement for his soft, floppy, fluffy, warm ears :)   Youtube: infinitetawney

  36. (YT: MissAlathea) I so want one, Christmas is coming and it’d make a perfect gift (university students in London are really poor). I went to one shop and saw a similar (but not as HALF as cute as the one in the vid *____*) and she got all sparkly-eyed so yes, I think I’d wrap it around her head so she can’t even see and then wish her Merry Christmas~ We’re not originally from England and it’s the first Christmas away from home so…at least she’d be a bit cheerier ^^

  38. One could use this lovely bear hat for a magnitude of different things. 

    1, bag, tie the paws together and have the hat upside down handing from the shoulders. 2. Ramen bole warmer! Put it over your (closed ofc) bole of ramen, and keep it warm while, i dont know, doing other stuff, before eating it.
    3. Put it over a stuffed animal, it would then be a wolf in sheep’s clothing, or in this case, a (for example) bunny in bear clothing.
