Playmobil launches reusable Nose and Mouth Mask

Published on: 1st May 2020

Three different sizes will be available in a material which is durable, resource-saving and easy to clean. 

Playmobil has used its own plastics expertise to launch the first reusable Playmobil Nose and Mouth Mask. The mask can be ordered by consumers via the company’s online shop; Playmobil says the risk of infecting other people with a droplet infection can be reduced by wearing this mask.

After initially supplying its employees worldwide with masks, the mask is now to be offered for sale via the Playmobil UK webshop. It is available in three sizes, Large – Medium – Small, as well as in different colours.

The mask will initially be offered for £4.99, with £1 from the sale of each mask going to support charities helping with the fight against Covid-19.

To meet the high demand, production of the masks 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 keyworkers and those most in need, according to the company.

Important notes on use

The wearer should insert a fresh filter element into the mask before each use. Various absorbent materials can be used as filters; 10 handkerchiefs are enclosed with the mask and provide material for 40 filters. The mask must not be used without a filter and, for hygienic reasons, always only when cleaned. When putting on the mask, the user should make sure that the nose and mouth are completely covered. The mask is held in place by a rubber band so that it cannot slip out of place. Even when wearing the mask, all hygiene regulations, such as a safety distance of at least two metres from other people, must be observed. After 10 hours at most, the mask should be thoroughly cleaned with hot water and cleaning detergen, and the filter element removed before cleaning.

The reusable mask can be ordered immediately at: www.playmobil-mask.com or for larger/trade orders please email pmuk@playmobil.de to find out more.
