    I can definitely see these in cute baby pictures! I think my favorites are the Yoda hat and the bunny ears. I just saw a baby this last Sunday with a cute crocheted hat on and it was just so cute. Definitely adds character to any outfit or picture! The hair bands are always cute for little girls as well. My kids would never keep them on but I see kids all the time having no problem.

      Yeah, baby photographers would have a LOT of fun with these, no doubt!

      Don’t some of these make you wish you could crochet? 🙂 I know I sure get that wish when I see these cute baby hats – some people sure are talented!!

      Cheers, have a great day!

    These are very cute options for gifts for those who don’t have kids but have friends who do. I like the little owl baby costume hat and Mr. Potato. I was wondering about the durability of these products. Is the material good enough to last for years ( so it can be used for the following child)?

    • Marlaine February 1, 2017 at 1:16 am

      Hi Dira,

      Great question! I’m a mother of two young children, so based on my own experience, I’d have to say that you’re a-ok to assume a second child would be able to use the same baby costume hat – no problem, regardless of the material. My reason for this is that while older children (age 2-3 and up) can be hard on clothes (and toys and housewares and pretty much everything), little babies don’t have the ability to “wreck” a hat yet. They pretty much will sleep in these, wear them without fussing with them if Mom puts them on their heads while out for a walk, and that’s about it. My infant hats have gone through my children and others (some I got second hand, others I passed on to my siblings for their kids to use) and they are ALL looking pretty much good as new.

      Hope that helps! If you have a question about a particular hat’s quality, let me know and I’ll see if I can help you out further!

      Have a great day!

    I giggled checking out all the pictures. I have a 4 month old at home and I could picture him in the yoda hat. Such a wide variety of different style. There is something for everyone thats for sure.

    • Marlaine February 13, 2017 at 1:16 pm

      The Yoda hat is definitely one of my favorites too! Thanks for commenting, Nathan! 🙂
