Not to be confused with the Top Hat.

The Founders' Hat is a members-only land clothing item that is worn on the head. It was formerly sold at Jam Mart Clothing and was first released on September 16, 2010. It was removed from stores later in 2010.


The Founders' Hat looks like the Top Hat, but is a yellow-gold color instead. It has yellow and white stripes, a golden band around the base, and a solid yellow top with creamy white beads around it. This item comes in only one variant.


  • In Tunnel Town, when the game was released, there was a bunny called the Founder Bunny with the same golden coloring as the Founders' Hat.
  • It is very similar to the Top Hat and Freedom Hat.
  • It was most likely released as a celebration of the new age of Animal Jam, after the Beta Testing. This could possibly mean it will never be released again.
  • At one point, there were rumors saying that there would be a Founders' Hat for Rare Item Monday; however, this never happened.
  • Jammers often mistake this as a beta item.
  • This item was given a "Rare" badge in a November 19, 2015, update.
