Amid the outbreak of coronavirus, Playmobil has used its plastics expertise to introduce a reusable mask. The Playmobil Nose and Mouth Mask can help reduce the risk of infecting other people with a droplet infection, can be ordered by consumers via the company's online shop.   

After initially supplying its employees worldwide with masks, the mask is now to be offered for sale via the Playmobil UK online shop. The mask is available in three sizes – large, medium and small – and it comes in different colours. 

The mask will initially be offered for £4.99 with one pound from the sale of each mask going to support charities helping with the fight against Covid-19 

To meet the high demand, the production of the first reusable Playmobil Nose and Mouth Mask has been running at full speed. In record time, new injection moulds were built, based upon the complex mould design for this item. 

With medical masks and PPE stocks in high demand, the Playmobil Nose and Mouth Mask can make a positive contribution to protecting stocks of these products for key workers and those most in need.
