The Mr. Toad ball cap we first found at Walt Disney World is now also available at Disneyland Resort.
We found the hat at World of Disney in Downtown Disney District.
Mr. Toad Ball Cap – $29.99
Mr. Toad is embroidered on the front of this orange ball cap. He’s depicted in full color with his yellow waistcoat and red jacket, while other characters from “The Wind in the Willows” are depicted in outline behind him.
The hat has an adjustable strap on the back with a silver buckle.
Mr. Toad was created by novelist Kenneth Grahame for his children’s book “The Wind in the Willows,” published in 1908. Disney adapted the story as one half of “The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad,” the other half being based on Washington Irving’s “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.”
“The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad” premiered in 1949. When Disneyland opened six years later, Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride, inspired by “The Wind in the Willows” segment of the film, was an opening-day attraction. The ride remains to this day, although it received a major update in the 1980s. Watch our video of Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride:
Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride was also an opening day attraction at Magic Kingdom, but it was later replaced by The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh — something many fans protested.
