Sometimes it’s tricky to convince kids to wrap up warm on cold days, but they’ll love wearing this funky, skater-style hat.
The stripes and pointy shape are lots of fun, and you can rest assured that little ears are warm under those cute ear flaps.
Girls will love this design just as much as boys – just use their favourite colours!
