Where to Buy a Cute Hat for My 5 Year Old Daughter

My daughter is going to girl scout camp and must wear a hat. Of course when you want something specific you can never find it. I was thinking about either a bucket hat or a a hat with a wider brim, guess it would be called a beach hat. Has anyone seen any around? I figured I'd post the question because I really don't feel like taking two little ones from store to store in search.

Thanks in advance.

We got my daughter some really cute baseball hats at WalMart last summer. They're adjustable so they'll fit her for a long time. I'd just start looking at stores online. You're bound to find something. You can just order it that way you don't have to drag the kids out. I know hot frustrating that can be!

Try Lands End online. Lots of cute hats. I have also found cute ones at The Children's Place, but I haven't been there yet this year, so I'm not sure what styles they're carrying. Last year we bought a visor for my daughter there.

I don't know about for girls, but for boys I always have the best luck at the Children's Place. Unless you get a local answer for a great boutique place, I'd try there. You can check their stock online before bothering going to the store. I love hats! If I had a girls she'd be wearing them all the time. :)

Hi P.,

Target usually always has hats. You may not have a large selection but they have them through all the seasons. My girls where hats all the time and find something they like often.

My daughter recently had an opportunity to visit the American Girl store in Downtown Chicago with a friend. We gave her some spending money. She came home with a surprisingly good purchase. She bought a hat for $15.00. It is a lightweight reversible (white and fushica) bucket style hat with a wider brim than usually seen on bucket hats. It has the American Girl logo embroidered in pink on the white side. I can't find the exact link for this hat but here is another cute summer hat, also by American Girl.
