U.S. Customs officers in Atlanta confiscated 870 counterfeit wool ski caps earlier this month.
The shipment had a manufacture's suggested retail price of $15,500, Customs and Border Protection said.
The counterfeit ski caps resembled children's cartoon characters. They were discovered during a physical exam of merchandise from Ecuador that was listed on the manifest as handicrafts.
Trademark violations included Hello Kitty, Angry Birds, Yogi Bear, Spiderman, Marvel Comics, Smurfs, Shrek, Looney Tunes, Sponge Bob and Crabby, Ice Age and Disney's Lilo and Stitch.
