"Meet our friend, Abo the Able Masked Bear. At first, putting on a mask was daunting. Abo had never worn anything on his face before. But after trying it on a few times, Abo likes wearing his mask now. He feels like he is able to conquer the world.”
Stuffed Bear with Toy Mask and Matching Mask
Gray Gingham Mask Exterior with Gray Interior
Handmade and Ethically Produced
We know how hard it’s been to have your child wear a mask. We’ve surveyed over 40 families and the overall response is that it’s uncomfortable, hot, and they simply just don’t get it. And with states starting to open and the weather getting nicer, it is even harder to keep your kids within the vicinity of your house-yard-apartment.
Our design team has put a lot of hard work into figuring out how to make this mask comfortable, breathable, and feel like it’s “barely there”. Our goal is to create products that encourage your child to wear a mask. More importantly, we want to help your child cope with some of the major and incomprehensible changes in their life.
