Kids face masks are now available for purchase! These cloth face masks are designed for kids and feature 100% cotton and cute designs that children will love to wear.
In response to the Coronavirus Disease, the Center for Disease Control has recommended that all individuals wear a cloth face mask or covering to slow the spread of COVID-19, especially when going to places such as grocery stores where maintaining 6 feet of social distance at all times is challenging.
Cloth face coverings can be fashioned at home using cloth and rubber bands or hair ties, but a quality construction with multiple layers of tightly woven cotton is best. Surgical masks in public are not necessary and should be saved for essential medical personnel. It is recommended that the mask fit snugly over your nose and mouth, and be unable to remove the mask on accident under normal everyday activities.
We have worked tirelessly in our own Hutch Studio to create a mask worthy of Cricket Island, and we have finally found what we believe to be the best match of quality, construction, and design, to aid in the protection of public health. In addition, these masks are made with the characters of Cricket Island to be more easily accepted by children, when wearing a mask can seem a scary thing.
These adorable cloth face masks are great for children. Constructed from double-layer tightly woven cotton fabric, with a pocket for a filter, and adjustable elastic that can be used as ear loops or tie around the back of the head, these masks exceed the requirements for general public use, and are adorably cute to boot! We also carry masks for stuffed animals to help make mask-wearing less scary.
During these scary times, we continue our mission of bringing comfort, kindness, and Glad Dreams to all those we can, and making a mask that can bring happiness and smiles (even if hidden) is just another way we hope to continue along this path. We wish everyone to stay safe and healthy, and don't forget to wash your hands!
