We put hats on sale all the time.
The Cat in the Hat hat is the officially licensed hat for "The Cat in the Hat" Storybook by Theodor Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss.
It is a tall stovepipe hat with a white brim, three red stripes against two white stripes and always seems to be curved one way or the other. One size fits most. Great for Burning Man!
The story concerns a somewhat crazy cat who suddenly appears in a household with two young children, while the mother is out, doing all kinds of things to amuse them and practically destroying the house in the process. The kids finally prevail and the Cat in the Hat somehow miraculously cleans the house and disappears with his two little creature sidekicks an instant before the mother arrives. All of this is done with a vocabulary of just over 200 words making the book a great vehicle for helping young kids to learn to read the English language for the last 50 years. The Cat in the Hat is probably the most classic children's book of all time, entrancing kids even more with its rhyme and rhythm. The Mike Meyers movie of 2003 is worth seeing.
Make sure to wear this iconic hat while reading the story aloud to young ones!
