Howie and Ryan interview the creators of the covEars.  They talk about the design process, creating and producing the product and so much more..

Covears™ started as a way to breathe new life into our old Mickey Mouse® ear hats.  Part of the magic of going to a Disney® park is wearing your favorite souvineers - pins, sweatshirts, along with your trusty ear hat.

 

Bringing the same hat into the parks day after day got us thinking - how can we freshen up our hats  to match our style and mood for the day without doing anything permanent to them?  

That's when founders Jason and Taren came up with Covears™.

 

Covears™ are fabric covers for your favorite pair of Mickey Mouse® ears.  Slip them on for a colorful change and explore any Disney® park in style!  Ready for a new look?  Covears™ are easily removable - just pull them off - and slide another set on.  It's a great way to add some flair to your day!
