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!

    Awwww that’s most adorable! I WANT THAT HAT, very much so! I would shrolly (slowly, get it?) wrap up my black & white pet bunny, named “Vuvu” in the hat, when I cuddle her and give her carrots at night. I’d make her a stronger bunny, you see, by letting her have her feast IN the MOUTH of a GIANT WHITE POLAR BEAR! cause “Winter is coming!” oh yes, she could go all Dothraki and speak Russian Bunny… and then when she’s done eating, I’d wear the hat, and the mittens to pet her a bit more, and well, she would think she’s not alone anymore, being a black and white fluffy adorable animal. 
    That’s it! :)

  3. When I studied in Japan, I bought a stuffed animal llama named Llama-kun!  He is the most adorable thing ever!  If I had one of those cute bear hats, I would put it on Llama-kun and give people cute overloads by putting him in the window as a Christmas decoration. <3

  4. wear it at home while i do housework,the paw side without the rubber things could be used for cleaning. OR! a very stupid idea would be to wear it in the shower, and use the no paw side as ‘scrubber’ to wash myself. i’d look very cute even in the shower, and it’d be an alternate use for it.

  6. I would make the polar bear hat and mittens as part of a dress (across the shoulder) and wear it to a televised awards ceremony where millions upon millions of people would see my wonderful polar bear dress.  (Remember Bjork and the swan dress???)

    • I don’t know if it matters, but I posted my original comment under my work e-mail, which is different from my Facebook e-mail address, which I used to subscribe to your website.  Hope that is okay.

  7. aw . . . wtf is wearing off of me. Most of the things that are presented as WTF are commonalities here at home since it is everything sold at downtown (its Koreans selling to Mexicans in America lol) =/ 
    I guess when I go live in Korea I won’t feel so homesick as it is very similar to Juarez/El Paso =)

    I just watch now for the crazy antics of Simon&Martina <3

  12. I would make it into a couples hat-scarfy-thing and the guy could wear the hat (as it is super manly!) and the girl would stand could wear the gloves so for it to work, the guy would have to be really close or hugging the girl from behind, so not only are your hands are warm, pretty much the rest of your body is too. Yay for hugs! Also I would wear it in class and have a secret stash of candy in it so I have easy access to some ninja candy eating, because it would be soo less obvious than just eating sweets normally…. Super-ninja-candyeating-hugging couple-panda-paw-hat-scarft-thing! ^^          ;)

  13. well first thing that popped into ma head about wearing that hat was ‘wow, it i’d be able to put ma cellphone into one of the paws, so i won’t have to look for it like crazy like i have to when it is in my bag…’ XD no more missing phone problems P:

    i’m stalkering ur yt chanel as VelMadzik >:D

  14. I have this odd inkling to wear it as a diaper and run around my neighborhood yelling and screaming…but I’m too old (21) for that and would need some alcohol before doing such :P

    I think the best idea would be to tie the mittens around my neck, place my young kitten in there, and leave it there all day. Its essentially instant cuteness gratification (from both the hat and of course the fuzzy kitteh).

  16. I love to crochet so I would wear it as a hat but use the hand parts to hold my yarn and my tools that are always falling on the floor. That way I could walk around and still crochet at the same time! I would also crochet a cute red bow applique and attach it to the bear’s head like Hello Kitty~

  20. I thought of many diffrent reasons so I picked my favorite two they are…. I would dress in all white, put it on, and go out into the snow and 1 jump out at my little sister and her best friend ( the ones in the picture) and I would also use it that way to hide from my parents when they want me to clean. The other way is to put it on my little brother and make him beg you for it with his cuteness.

    I’d wear the bear hat, hide in a sea of stuffed animals, and then proceed to pop out screaming “boo” whenever someone passes by me.

    I should probably do this in a toy store and learn how to run fast to avoid being kicked out.

    So, growing up my brother had a favorite bear, that he loved so hard the middle wore thin. Papa Bear then had to always wear a shirt to protect his stuffing. The bear hat would be perfect for when the head on my fav stuffed animal wears out. I put the hat on the animal, and not only are the worn spots protected, its cuteness has been amped up. Now I can continue to love on my stuffed animal :)

  31. This bear hat with bear paws is a very useful item for my stuffed animals.  ^_^ I have 3 teddy bears and one duck.  Unfortunately the duck is excluded from all teddy bear activities.  It’s very sad.  :(  Teddy bears are such a discriminating race.  If I was able to acquire one of these bear hats, then ducky can wear it.  Not only will ducky have a bear face, but he will have something the teddy bears don’t have, awesome ferocious claw-less paws!!!!  Oh yeah, he would be the king of the teddy bears!

    On a side note, when I first saw the title I mistakenly read it as “Beer” hat with built in mittens.  Have you seen the hat’s with two beers/colas and straws attached to them.  Yup, the ones for tailgating!! That would have been awesome to see. ^_^

  32. I would TOTALLY use this when I was sleeping as a hair flattening + sun keeper outer device….not only would I look adorable with the hat on, but when it gets too bright, just wrap the arms around your head over your eyes and WABAM….cute paw eyes while you sleep.

  34. I would use it as a walking billboard for EATYOURKIMCHI. Everyone would stop me and say, “Where did you get that super cute hat?” I would tell them that won it in a monthly contest from Simon & Martina’s brilliant, creative, & entertaining vlog, and I would encourage them to subscribe to EATYOURKIMCHI’s YouTube Channel, to “like” EATYOURKIMCHI on Facebook, and to follow EATYOURKIMCHI on Twitter!

  35. I would tie the two mitten ends together, hang it over my shoulder, and use it as a purse. The bear will be eating my pocketbook and my keys.

  36. I’d use the bear hat for my baby when he is sleeping or in his carseat…I’d use the paws as slippers to keep his little toes warm and then I wouldn’t have to worry about him losing his socks!  Plus, I always wanted a baby bear to snuggle! TOO CUTE! :)

  37. I would use the paw mittens to cook!! Cause they protect the hand from the heat of the food, and it would transform the act of cooking into an act of cuteness <3

  38. I would use it this way: when I have already washed my hair and curled my hair using curlers, I would wear the hat on the top of the curlers, so my haircut wouldn’t become dishevelled when I sleep.
