Face masks have become the world's most coveted commodity, with more and more countries around the globe advising people to wear one if and when they need to leave the house. As a result, face masks are selling out quickly, but today Disney is stepping in to help, launching a new range of cloth face masks, all inspired by some of Disney's best-loved characters.
Star Wars fans getting prepped for May the Fourth on Monday will be excited to see designs featuring Yoda – don't miss our round-up of the best ways to celebrate Star Wars Day this year. Other designs include Mickey and Minnie (obviously) and characters from Frozen, Monsters Inc and Marvel. Any profits from sales (up to one million dollars) will be donated to MedShare.
The Disney face masks are not medical grade, and while they are available to pre-order now, they're not expected to ship until the end of June. If you can't wait that long, head over to our where to buy a face mask article, which has retailers with plenty of stock and fast shipping options. Alternatively you could create your own design with our in-depth guide on how to make a face mask (no sewing options available).
