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. I would take my favorite kpop idol and use the cute hat as a straightjacket to kidnap him, that’s not scaring right….? if you give them candy in advance ^^

    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.

  3. I would hang it from the ceiling and use it as a carrier for all of my candy. ;)

  4. 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).

  6. 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

  7. 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.

  8. These are popular in the U.S. right now.  I saw some in JCPenny that cost around $25!  That is a lot of money.

  10. 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

  11. 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! ^^          ;)

  14. I would let gophers bite onto the paws then I would spin them around like nun chucks to defeat my assailants.

  15. 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

  16. 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! :)

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. I would use the Fluffy Bear Hat With Built in Paws Mittens to Play with Spudgy. Like Roar at him to make him feel better. (:

  20. 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 :))

  21. :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!

Martina must be going into cuteness overload again with that pic in her head.. TOO SWEET!!! luv u guise!

  23. 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!

    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 :)

  27. i would add a zipper to it and then tie up the paws so it can turn into a bag XD really small bag (maybe) but it will be awesome and super cute

  28. 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.

  29. 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. ^_^
