If someone had told me a year ago, that masks would be the newest fashion accessory, I would've thought they were off their rockers. But along came 2020, the WEIRDEST year ever, and now everyone
should be is wearing masks. And while options abound for adults, finding ones that fit kids and are comfortable and cute is still a challenge.
So I crowdsourced for the best kids' masks out there! Here is a (I am sure incomplete) list of the best ones for kids:
1. Old Navy.
They sell 5 packs for $12.50. They have lots of really cute sets to choose from. They're designed according to CDC recommendations. Pros: They're pretty cheap, fit my 3 year old and 7 year old, and Old Navy is donating 50,000 masks to Boys and Girls Clubs of America.
2. Local stores!
- Cotton Tales
- The Merry Magnolia
- Cheryl Pesce The Lifestyle Store in Crosstown
- Spoiled Sweet
- Pigtails and Crewcuts
3. Local makers!
- Sew Bottom Sewing Company
- Somersault Designs
- Needles Down in Germantown
- Lolo Headbands
4. Etsy Here are a couple of shops that were recommended:
You can get everything at Target! They have solid ones that, if you are crafty (so not me), you can decorate.
This is a vacuum company in Oregon that is now making masks. Instead of a nose wire, they have a nose flap.
These come in 4 different patterns and are made with their BacLock material.
8. Bailey Blue Clothing
Their kids' masks feel like soft, stretchy tee shirts!
They have THREE sizes (most places just have "kids" or "adults". They have child, YOUTH, and adult. Might be a good option for pre-teens!
10. SLVR Lining
These are handmade in Arizona and they have some REALLY cute patterns!
11. Rails Clothing
They are selling packs of 5 for $25.
12. Lands End
Do your kids wear uniforms? They're selling masks to match!
13. Health Gear Now
This is a a one stop shop for all things medical: kids' masks with N95 filters, hand sanitizer, gloves, etc.
14. Taylor Joelle Clothing Company
They have super cute, Disney inspired masks that are double layer and soft, plus the design has the higher nose, which fits well.
15. Joah Love
They donate a mask with every purchase. Plus they have 4 sizes: kids (2-6 year olds), SM/MED (bigger kids), M/L- (smaller adult faces), and L/XL- (bigger adult faces and men with beards)
16. Targeted Facebook ads:
- MASQD- some of these patterns are really pretty cute!
