Toy manufacturer Playmobil has used its plastics expertise to launch the first reusable "Playmobil Nose and Mouth Mask".
According to the company, the risk of infecting other people with a droplet infection can be reduced by wearing the mask. After initially supplying its employees worldwide with masks, it is now to be offered for sale via the Playmobil UK website.
The mask is available in three sizes – small, medium and large, as well as in different colours. lnitially offered for £4.99, 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 mask has been running at full speed. In record time, new injection moulds were built, based upon the complex mould design for this item.
The company said, "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."
