Information about Don Post Crazy Craniums Hats?

Howdy!

Does anyone have any information about a line of latex (or vinyl?) hats that Don Post put out in the mid 1980s?

I remember them, never had one. They were only in production for a year or two:

I remember these in catalog form only. Never really saw the appeal in them so never purchased one.

The "Thinking Cap" was the idea of a fellow who worked there briefly named Bill Bryant.  Lynn Shook, who worked briefly as a design coordinator liked the idea and took it a step further adding in more hat styles.  These were among the first DPS products that were supposed to be manufactured in China.  Rob and I inspected the first batch that came in from China, but they were unusable, due to very poor quality (and dead mosquitoes inside).  We had to scrap them all and make them in the No Hollywood shop.  Unfortunately, they were priced to be produced in China, so as soon as the outstanding orders were fulfilled, they were dropped from the line.
