Western Celebrities Who Hopped On The Bunny Ear Hat Trend
The adorable moving bunny ear hat that all your favorite K-pop stars have tried at least once before is now gaining popularity on western stars’ social media as well!
The hat was first spotted being worn by K-pop idols at fan sign events and has since become famous by gaining attention in online communities. With two bunny ears attached to its sides and a cute bunny face on the front, it also features long handles that come down from the back of the bunny ears which hold the magical button that contains the hat’s charm.
If you press the tip of these bunny legs, the ears on the hat will suddenly jump up. This is due to a simple mechanism involving a rubber pump at the tip of the bunny legs that fills up with air once it is pressed.
