All of you must know about the moving bunny ear hats that are popular all over the world, especially in Korea and Japan. In every event (concerts, festivals, cultural events, etc), you can spot a bunch of people wearing moving ear hats from the original type (the white bunny moving ears or the pink one),to other characters like Stitch, Winnie the pooh, Pikachu, etc.

As seen in the picture above, moving ear hats are a cuddly plush hat with movable ears. When you press the air pump (the claw), the ear will move to follow your control. A lot of people love this idea and think it’s kawaii and so adorable. It can warm your head and make you kawaii at the same time! Not just that, moving ear hats can also be your dancing companion as you are able to move the ears to follow the rhythm.

But, do you agree that we need the Sanrio version such as Hello Kitty, My Melody, Pompompurin, Cinnamoroll, Pochacco and Kuromi to complete the line-up? If we are on the same boat then you are lucky! Sanrio released adorable characters for moving ear hats on August 21st, 2019 👏👏👏 and the price is at 2,052 yen (US$19.30). The moving ear hats can be ordered through the Sanrio online webshop. The line up includes the six popular Sanrio characters as seen in the picture below!

All of them are beyond kawaii, and all six of them have different kinds of ears.  With the Hello Kitty one, the ears are small so the movement is barely noticeable being more like twitching but still looks cute. The long ear hats My Melody, Pompompurin, Cinnamoroll and Pochacco are more noticeable and for Kuromi it looks more unique with the triangle-shaped of ears. Each moving hat have a unique type that makes you want to have them all. If you are a big fan of Sanrio, then you will want at least three of them.
