That's because you've set the vehicle property to the arm before the world's even started, meaning the hat will move with the from the beginning of the world onward.

Think about this: in reality, the hat doesn't move with the arm until the arm (and the hand) are grabbing onto the hat. So, to properly simulate it in Alice, you need to make the hat only move with the arm when the arm is grabbing onto the hat, not before.

(Hint: you can drag almost anything onto the command area in Alice...)
