When The Mandalorian came out this past fall on Disney+, Baby Yoda became an adorable overnight sensation and everyone's favorite tea-sipping meme. Now, you can buy all kinds of Baby Yoda merchandise, including socks, coffee tumblers, and shoes. As cute and collectible as those items are, Disney's latest Baby Yoda product is incredibly practical during the coronavirus pandemic.
To help kids get on board with wearing their protective masks in public, Disney has launched a line of masks adorned with various characters from Star Wars, Pixar, and Marvel films. According to People, the cloth masks are reusable, and until September 30, all profits from the sales will go to MedShare, a charity that sources medical supplies for hospitals.
Not only is there a Baby Yoda mask, but other characters like Winnie the Pooh, Stitch, The Hulk, Mike Wazowski, Minnie and Mickey Mouse, and more. “We realize this is a challenging time for families and wearing any type of mask can be daunting,” Disney said in a statement. “Our hope is that Disney’s cloth face masks featuring some of our most beloved characters will provide comfort to the families, fans and communities that are so important to us.”
The masks are available for pre-order now at ShopDisney.com, with items expected to ship in June.
