Are New Autumnal Ears Actually Re-Purposed NBA Experience Ears?
As we inch into August, Disney is already starting to drop Autumn merchandise and that includes Mouse Ears!
During our visit to World of Disney today, we discovered a brand new pair of Mouse Ears in a pumpkin-colored hue perfect for the Fall.
However, we have to be honest Disney friends, we took one look at these and had a deja-vu moment?
The ears are made up of a textured vinyl orange colored fabric. This fabric seems to be strikingly similar to the ears that we previously shared with you from the NBA Experience.
Check them out.
As you can see from the image above, the NBA Experience ears featured the same orange vinyl.
There are a few noteworthy differences. The band of the NBA Ears were blue and the Autumn ears feature a pumpkin orange velvety fabric. However as you can see from the image above, from the back they look pretty similar.
The new Autumnal ears feature a center bow in the same pumpkin orange color. This is different than NBA’s blue bow with a basketball icon at the center. .
We have to say that these Autumn ears are stunning and perfect for Halloween but the use of the PVC fabric for the ears does seem a bit curious.
Is it possible that Disney has simply repurposed the old ears to turn them into a new seasonal pair?
Unofficially, this isn’t the first time we’ve seen Disney give a slight variation to ears that have already been released. Most recently were punk-rock style ears that bear a striking resemblance to those released during the Cruella release.
Regardless of whether these ears are “reimagined” or not, they are simply stunning and have us yearning for a Pumpkin Spice Latte, Autumn leaves, Halloween parties and more!
