Disney Reveals Even More Designer Ear Headbands
We got our first look back in May at new Mickey Mouse ear hats and Minnie Mouse ear headbands designed by a variety of celebrities and personalities, including Heidi Klum, Her Universe and more.
Disney revealed even more designs today from ALEX AND ANI featuring the iconic silhouette of Minnie. The headband also features “follow your path” and “listen with your heart!” engraved on them.
