If you've got little ones, you might be in the process of trying to figure out where to buy kids' face masks right now. In the UK, the wearing of face masks is mandatory on public transport and in Ubers, and some shops are also enforcing rules that mean you can't enter without a face covering. 

Adults – if you haven't kitted yourself out with a mask yet, head to our guide to where to buy a face mask. However, if you have children (face masks can be worn by children aged two and above), you'll want something specialised. Not only do you need a covering that's designed to fit on a smaller face, but unless you've got a very obedient child, you might also want to go for a kid-friendly pattern that'll appeal. Read on for our pick of the best places to order kids face masks, in the US and the UK.
