About Flipeez

Flipeez are colorful winter hats that not only keep children’s ears warm, they also resemble fun animal characters that move.

An Idea Village product, they are sold under the As Seen on TV brand.

How Flipeez Work

For keeping ears warm, Flipeez work like any other winter hat, meaning they keep kids’ ears covered with a super soft fleece lining. The movement comes from squeezing the puffball encased within the  lining of the hat’s tassle. Squeezing the puff ball shoots a puff of air up into the hat and makes the moving parts jump. For example, squeezing the puff ball on the Rascally Rabbit hat makes the rabbit’s ears pop up. Although aimed at children, the Flipeez website says they’re great for people aged 4-104 (although it’s doubtful your grandparents would appreciate this as a gift).

Flipeez come in the following characters, who have moving ears, arms, wings or tails:

  • Playful Puppy
  • Huggy Monkey
  • Twitchy Kitty
  • Peek-a-Boo Monster
  • Curious Owl
  • Ranger Raccoon
  • Rascally Rabbit

Flipeez reviews online are mixed. While people love the idea and children seem to love them, too, the quality of the hats has come into question with concerns of poor stitching. Many people also state that children tend to pull on the tassles, which contain the mechanism that puffs air into the moving parts. Many people have complained about the air pumping mechanism being broken quickly by children. It seems that a part becomes disconnected inside and while you can fix it, it is annoying because the entire mechanism is encased in fabric, meaning you’re trying to fix something you can’t see.

Flipeez Pricing, Shipping & Return Policies

Each Flipeez costs $19.95, plus $7.95 shipping and handling for a total of $27.90.

The hats are covered by a 30-day money back guarantee for the purchase price, but not the shipping and handling fees. You will also be responsible for the cost of shipping it back to the company.

Bottom Line

A lot of parents who wrote reviews online are grateful to this product for making their children want to wear their hat outside during winter, so it definitely seems like a good idea. However, the hats’ propensity for breaking rather quickly from “careless” children (the only kind, really) means that a return at some point is likely. Because of this, it is highly recommended to skip the website and find a Flipeez in a store where you won’t have to worry about losing out on almost $8 worth of fees if you need to return it.

If you do order from the Flipeez website, make sure you tell your children before giving them the hat that they need to be extra careful with it. (Good luck with that.)

For what it’s worth, if you’re the type of person who is influenced by celebrity endorsements, Minnie Driver and Kathleen Robertson both endorse this product.

  • Elsa Flipeez

    • Spencerport, NY,
    • Jul 9, 2015

    I found the hat to be of extremely poor quality and definitely not worth the money. I bought the Elsa Flipeez for my daughter on Halloween for her to wear with her Elsa costume and now it's early December and the hat is already broken. Wish I had saved my receipt.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

  • My son likes it but...

    • May 18, 2015

    My son really likes wearing the hat but the part you squeeze to make the arms go up doesn't work very well most of the time. You have to squeeze very hard. You can hear the air moving through it but half of the time nothing happens. It does keep his head warm though!

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
