This isn’t a mask debate. The reality of it is, masks are part of life for most of us right You may go places where masks must be worn, like a doctor’s office or an airport or a school. You may choose to have your child wear a mask when it’s not required. If you need to buy masks for your kids this is for you. If you want to argue about what other people are or are not doing….well, there are plenty of other places on the internet where you can do tht.

Although I’ve focused on masks for kids, many of these stores sell masks for adults, too. Take a few minutes to explore these
You can find everything at Walmart, right? Although your in-store experience will vary from location to location, they’ve got a great selection online. You can usually get Walmart deliveries pretty quickly, either at your door or to pick up at your local store.
Here are a few of my Walmart.com picks:
We’ve visited Walt Disney World twice this year. During our March 2021 visit, masks were required just about everywhere on the Walt Disney World property unless eating or swimming. Disney gifted us with some masks and I was very impressed with their breathability and softness.
Check out the selection of masks on shopDisney. You’ll find a similar selection of masks in the Disney Parks and at the resort hotels at on the Walt Disney World property. Shop online and make sure you have enough masks for your trip, if you’re planning one.
We visited Walt Disney World again in June and found the masking rules greatly relaxed. If you’re planning a trip to Disney, definitely keep up with the current health and safety protocols. The rules are changing very frequently right now.
This was a surprise to me. I didn’t know Vistaprint made masks but the parents in my Facebook community really like them. You can buy masks and filters on their site.
They’ve got bright solid colors plus some fun and whimsical prints that aren’t branded, i.e. planets and dinosaurs.
This was another fun discovery, and not just for masks but for other artist created merchandise. If your kids want truly unique and fun masks that are different than what everyone else has, this is definitely worth checking out. If you’re looking for a space panda mask or something with an extra dose of whimsy, this is your shop.
Old Navy has lots of three-pack adjustable masks for kids. They have a few plain ones, but most are pop culture/cartoon characters. Their online store offers Paw Patrol, Disney, Star Wars, Sonic the Hedgehog and more.
GAP has lots of fun masks for kids, mostly sold in three packs. They’ve got cartoon characters and pop culture and they’ve also got prints, statements/quotes and sets. This set of three leopard masks is adorable. They’re also adjustable.
Most of the GAP mask sets have pockets for filters if you want to use those.

Land’s End has fun prints and vibrant solids that coordinate with their kids clothing. I’m not sure how long the sale is going to last but these are on clearance for $1.99.
OMG! Masks for Kids
One of the parents in my community described these as “Not as bougie as it sounds.” I love the word bougie, just putting that out there.
You can buy several styles of OMG! masks on Amazon – these are all pretty girly but have a look here.
Nordstrom.com has lots of OMG! Masks for Kids. If you’re looking for fun Shark Week masks, this is your store.
This is a new find for me and I don’t have any personal experience with ordering from them. They’ve got some fun and unique prints as well as pop culture prints and political/statement masks.
This is the best shop I’ve seen for matching your exact outfit to a mask or making a statement about what you love or stand for.
