Thanks to FuelMyBlog and #IdeaVillage we received a Playful Puppy Flipeez™ animal action hat for review.
Having FedEx pull into the driveway is always a lot of fun around here. Even if the product I’m receiving isn’t for the girls to try they are still elated to see what new thing there is to review. This time there was a lot of screaming, wooting and hollering when I opened the envelope BECAUSE inside was a Playful Puppy Flipeez™ hat. The promotional material exclaims that the hat is great for anyone 4 or 104, but I could tell from just looking at it that the hat was going to most comfortably fit my youngest daughter, BonBon. Just to confirm and prevent any “it’s not fair meltdowns” I had both of them try it on. Needless to say BonBon was the best candidate for this hat since Cookie has a big noggin just like me. By the way, I did attempt to put on the hat with very little success. I don’t know if this means much to the general public, but I wear a 7 7/8 size hat (if I wear one) so I have a fairly large head that doesn’t easily fit into much.
The Flipeez™ hat is very well constructed from what I can tell so far. It boasts a warm and soft inner fleece lining and a knit outer cap. This makes it stretchable (so I guess I COULD have jammed my massive noggin into it, but no one would have been able to wear it after I was done with it IMHO). The hat is just too stinking cute. When you press on the puppy’s paw you can make the ears stand up straight or flap slow or fast.
BonBon loved the hat so much she would not take it off inside our out for the next three days. As soon as she got up in the morning on went the hat. It wasn’t until we had a warmer day and her little head started to sweat that she relinquished the hat. I did have a rule for her though – she could not wear the hat while she ate. The tassels, “arms” or “legs” of the creature, that house the hoses for the air pump would hang down long enough to end up in her food. Because of the mechanism inside to make the ears flip and flap the hat is NOT machine washable. The instructions for cleaning are spot clean with a clean white cloth and allow to dry flat. I would imagine if you have a sweater rack for your dryer and put it on low you would be able to speed this process up, but this would be at your own risk.
Flipeez™ is available on their website for $19.95 (plus s&h). It is available several precocious and colorful styles – Playful Puppy, Twitchy Kitty, Huggy Monkey, Curious Owl, Peek-a-boo Monster, and Ranger Raccoon. I just noticed today that the pink Rascally Rabbit is sold out. Since this offer is not available in stores if you want one, you should get one soon before they all sell out!
