    i used this product to custom make the centerpieces for my son's first birthday i had a safari theme. they turned out so cute nothing that i've ever seen before. i was going to order more but i noticed that the hat wouldnt fit all the kids at the party since i would have younger and older kids maybe if it had a tie to adjust around the kids face i would have ordered more. over all this is a great product.

    My company was hosting it's annual awards ceremony and this year's theme was "Safari". The helmets were a bit small for most adult-size heads, but we were able to adjust by adding a draw string and having them hang down our backs. They were lightweight enough to hang as decorations around the room as well, and sturdy enough to use as bowls for snack.

    Comments:

    The kids at my son's safari themed birthday party enjoyed decorating these safari pith hats and wearing them around the zoo. They were a little big for all of the 3-4 year olds and are quite thin (so they can dent or break easily). But they were perfect for our use and we would get them again. Also pictured are custom stickers and binoculars purchased here.

        Used this as decoration of my jungle/safari party, not as hats that people wore. Very believable and cute for the theme. We used them as bowls and regular table décor. I did take a couple home for my son and his friends to play with, though. They will get a kick out of these hats.

            These hats were a wonderful addition for a jungle-themed party . I recommend if you have a jungle/safari themed party, these hats would be a great choice. Just remember they are not White , they are beautiful Green.

              I bought these to use for my son's 3rd birthday party. We are doing a safari Mickey Mouse party and I am going to add foam Mickey ears to the hats to make them even more cute.

                            We used these for a major outdoor event we were having. We ordered 500 hats and gave them out to the children (and some adults) that attended.
                            The children wore them and as they they participated in each activity they got a sticker to put on their helmet. There were stickered hats everywhere!!! The kids loved having a goal of collecting all the stickers and it got them to visit all the activities!

                                  I say poorly sized only because this definitely is made for young children. Our oldest party guest was 10 and it didn't fit him. All the younger kids (2-7) were fine. We gave this to all of our younger party guests (although a few adults wanted them :))at the start of the the party. Later we let the kids use safari themed foam stickers to decorate the hats with. Turned out welll.

                                              My company was hosting it's annual awards ceremony and this year's theme was "Safari". The helmets were a bit small for most adult-size heads, but we were able to adjust by adding a draw string and having them hang down our backs. They were lightweight enough to hang as decorations around the room as well, and sturdy enough to use as bowls for snack.

                                                      planned safari birthday for granddaughter. Was a big hit with the adults as well as the kids. Added fun and excitment to party theme.

                                                      We used to add to the "affect" of an archeology dig--worked great to give the children that feeling.
                                                      Wish it had a hole on either side to allow for a shoelace band--would have looked more authentic.

                                                        • Q:

                                                          What is the adult "hat-size" equivalent of the 7" x 6" head opening?

                                                          I am asking because one of the questions earlier asked if the helmet would fit adult women - and the answer was no, too tight. A second question asked whether it would fit adult men, the answer was yes.

                                                            There is not a hat size. I have tried this one and it is tight fit and I have a small adult head.

                                                            No. Would be very tight and not comfortable.
