When The Mandalorian came out this past fall, suddenly Baby Yoda was everywhere. Almost overnight he became an adorable sensation and everyone's favorite tea-sipping meme. You can buy all kinds of Baby Yoda merchandise, from a Chia Pet, to a life-sized puppet, to Christmas ornaments, to even shoes. As cute and collectable these items are, Disney has now released a Baby Yoda product that is incredibly practical as the coronavirus pandemic unfortunately continues.
The CDC recommends wearing face masks in public to slow the spread of the virus and to help kids get on board, 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 Sept. 30, all proceeds from the sales will go to MedShare, a charity that sources medical supplies for hospitals. You can check out some of the masks in the tweet below.

Not only is there a Baby Yoda mask, but other characters include 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 on Thursday. “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.
