Promising review: "My daughter kept bringing home lanyards for her masks but they didn’t have a breakaway feature and that made me really nervous since the kids have to wear masks all day at school, even when they are outside playing. These make me feel so much better! If she gets caught on something or a kid grabs at her lanyard I feel safe knowing it will break so she doesn’t end up getting hurt. It’s also a plus that she has an easy way to keep track of her mask all day." —Kayla Shinevar

Promising review: "Half the moms in my daughters class asked where I got these cool clips! The clips are big enough for my daughter (4) to add which mask she grew to like wearing for the day. She hasn’t lost a mask or accidentally switched masks after lunch. I know that this makes it easier for her to be vigilant with mask wearing and has already prevented her from contracting strep that went around her class!"—azsax

Promising review: "My daughter's school requires the kids wear lanyards for their masks. I had originally bought some other ones but they didn't even survive a week! These have lasted well over a month and are still in fantastic shape. I like the clips on these better too. Definitely recommend." —Stacie

Promising review: "This is my second purchase as my 10-year-old niece fell in love with my first mask lanyard — the colors are beautiful and the fabric is extremely comfortable on your neck! The snaps are secure and easy to use — I’m so glad you’re still carrying these in stock as we are continuing to wear our masks 😷— thanks so much!" —Maria-Ann Ntagkinis
