This week’s ears in the spotlight aren’t technically ears, but they are a fun new headband.
The Slinky Dog Headband was released in celebration of the opening of Toy Story Land on June 30. They’re really cute and perfect for any Toy Story fan!
Instead of ears on top of the headband, Slinky Dog is stretched across the top. The front and back of Slinky is plush, so it’s very soft to the touch. He has floppy ears on his head, a green collar, and he has a happy look on his cute little face. The middle part is plastic and is flexible (like the real slinky). His tail is also flexible and springy, so it bounces around as you walk. The tip of the tail is plush, while the base of the tail is plastic. This is one of the cutest features I have seen on the headbands.
The headband is covered in the same soft, brown material that makes up Slinky Dog. The soft material covers both the outside and the inside of the headband, so depending on the size of your head, it could slip a bit. I found the headband to be comfortable to wear, but if I moved my head a lot it usually slipped off. Just something I noticed.
This headband doesn’t light up like the Aliens Headband, but I think it’s just as fun! If you are a Toy Story fan, or you have a child who is, I would definitely check these out during your next vacation.
Right now, I don’t see the Slink Dog Headband on the Shop Disney Parks app or on shopDisney.com, probably because it’s too new. However, you can find this headband at select locations in Hollywood Studios.
