Mamask Bunny Masks

Make mask-wearing fun for kids with festive bunny masks from Mamask. They come in either blue or pink and are the perfect addition to an Easter basket. Mamasks are made of 100% woven cotton and bio-washed, which means the fabric is extra gentle and the colors stay vibrant longer.

Plus, the copper-ion filter offers powerful antibacterial, antimicrobial and deodorizing benefits. $16
