1. This devise relates to ornamental hats and headgear typically worn at public exhibitions such as sporting events. It is an exciting new product with greater visual impact than conventional caps and other competing products. This devise is actually two products in one package: it is an attention-grabbing mascot cap, consisting of a tie-on style stocking cap (commonly known as a “do-rag”), and a collectible mascot sculpture that is removable. Mascot statuettes are also interchangeable and can be displayed without the cap when not being worn. The statuette can also be equipped with a self-contained recorded sound effects unit that the user can activate for added impact.
The three-dimensional nature of the product creates an impressive display of team spirit that can be viewed from any vantage point. The stocking cap can also be imprinted with artistic/graphic elements for enhanced visual impact and worn without the statuette if desired. When used as headwear, this devise is lightweight and comfortable.
This products' unique appearance, features and versatility allows it to stand apart from the competition
