Keep earbuds, small trinkets, cards, and more in this Velcro closure pouch
Earbud pouches are a great way to keep your headphones clean, neat, and tidy. Unfortunately, most are too small for tiny hands…plus let’s face it, most kids aren't going to take the time to neatly coil the cords and zippers are just a potential disaster waiting to happen (I can foresee ‘cutting the wires’ with the zipper if you leave any part of the ear bud hanging out of the pouch because they’re in too big of a hurry to stuff it all inside). This pouch also features a lining that is separate from the exterior pouch for a professional looking finish.
