MouseTiara is the brainchild of doll designers Aiis Roman and Gamalier Bravo. Working out of Puerto Rico, these two artists expanded from designing dolls to designing adorable stuffed Disney ears. Their tsum-tsum inspired “tiaras” are trendy and beautifully-made, and there are a myriad of options for occasions, characters, and seasons.
MouseTiara has had a presence on Etsy since 2011 and has made 511 sales on that platform alone. This is a rare shop that has both an Etsy storefront and an external website, so there are multiple ways to shop, get updated, and pay for your ears! We’ll take a look at both options in today’s review!
Price Range: $$$
Number of products: 226 pairs of ears
Turnaround time: Their website states that the turnaround for completing ears is 10-15 days, plus an additional 3-7 days for shipping.
What We Love
|I loved the squishable, lightweight designs that are completely unique in shape and size from anything you could buy from an “official” Disney store.|
Who Would Love This Shop
Any FashionEarstas who love kawaii culture, pastel colors, or just overall cuteness will fall in love with MouseTiara. Their extensive selection of both character and non-character ears means that there is really a design for everyone!
What Needs Work
|MouseTiara.com is a bit less intuitive to use than their Etsy storefront, but since it has more options like the ability to see old designs and subscribe to a mailing list, the clutter is understandable.|
Why We Chose Them
I saw a photo of MouseTiara’s Yzma Cat ears on Instagram ages ago and had to have them to match my Loungefly! (Yzma is my favorite villain!) Since then I’ve bought additional pairs and love every single one!
How is the Shop to Use?
MouseTiara’s Etsy site only has one category for all of their ears, and with over 200 pairs that can mean a lot of scrolling to find what you’re looking for. I do love the ease of requesting a custom order, though!
MouseTiara.com, on the other hand, has a few seasonal categories like “Fall Inspired” and “Winter Inspired Keychains and Ears.” It’s also helpful that you can scroll through all 200+ designs on a single page without having to click the “next” button a bunch of times!
We’ll admit that some of the links on their website are confusing… there is a “shop” link right next to a “store” link (and the store link is broken). But none of these actually detract from the experience of buying ears.
What Customer Service Can You Expect?
MouseTiara has a five-star rating on Etsy, and many reviews mention their quick communication and willingness to modify, correct, or customize orders! They also have a very active presence on social media and respond to questions and suggestions there.
One thing I appreciate is their newsletter, which comes out several times a week and usually features new product announcements and sales. When COVID-19 started to impact shipping across the world, MouseTiara’s newsletter kept everyone up to date on possible delays and shipping statuses. I thought it went above and beyond!
What People are Saying
From Etsy customers:
“There aren’t enough good things to say about these ears. They are stunning, just beautiful. Well made and surprisingly very comfortable and light weight for being rather large. I can’t wait to wear them to WDW especially on the frozen ride.”Killian
“I will leave a review under here, because they were amazing. I did ORDER the Yzma ears, however, I asked them to be replaced with the Mulan ears. Which she was very understanding about and quick to reply. The ears came in and were just beautiful!! Excited to wear them in October.”Day
“ Absolutely amazing! This headband is even better seeing it in person! I cannot wait to wear it on my Disney trip next week! Even more amazing is the seller. When I mentioned that my trip was next week, they shipped out my headband early to make sure it arrived prior to my departure, even after I said it was okay if it didn’t make it in time. Now the difficult part….deciding which headband I want to select next! They are truly wonderful and a great keepsake!”Jennifer

Packaging & Shipping
Our ears shipped quickly and came in rather standard packaging (with padding.) We did love the very professional card that came with them!
OVERALL SCORE: (4.9/5.0)
I’m addicted to this shop and love their unique and extremely cute ears! Every time I wear them to the parks I get compliments and people asking where I got them! And it’s fun to be able to represent “minor” characters like Yzma and Bruni! We’ll definitely be shopping with MouseTiara again!
I hope that you found this review helpful! Please let me know what you think about MouseTiara! Make sure you check us out on Pinterest, Facebook and Instagram, chances are you will see these ears in action!
