Child's Burgundy Mortar Board Hat
I was really impressed by the quality of this product... usually I expect to get cheaper stuff from OT, but these are great!! They are just miniatures of the real thing used in high schools and colleges! I denintely recommend!!

Doesn't stay on the head.
The design is absolutely horrible. It wouldn't stay on the head even for the picture when kids didn't move. It doesn't fit any size of the head, we tried all even adults. I tried to adjust the straps, but it spoiled the look completely.

We bought this product for my daughter's preschool graduation. The tassle was frayed when we got it and looked cheap. The cap is too shallow and even when we safety pinned the back AND used bobby pins we could not secure it to my daughters hair. The tassle came out very easily and we ended up ot even using the cap because of all the trouble it gave us. Usually "you get what you pay for" does not apply to Oriental Trading but in this case it definitely does.

Wouldn't stay on!
I bought this hat along with the matching gown so that I could take graduation pictures of my special needs preschoolers. While the fabric was nice, I had a very difficult time keeping them on their heads, as the fabric is super-slippery and the edge of the hat doesn't have elastic. I tried holding the hat on with metal clip barrettes but the fabric even slipped out of those. I myself had a hard time keeping the hat on, and I had to hold my head still and walk like a model balancing a book on my head! I think if it was designed a bit differently (even my college mortarboard had elastic in the back!), keeping in mind that the size of young childrens' heads varies widely, I would have been more satisfied with the product.
