New Petite-mask-simulator for testing size and as template for cutting Totobobo mask
The Totobobo Petite mask attracted a lot of female fans since it’s introduction. The smaller version of Totobobo mask is softer, specifically designed for ladies and children. In most cases, the Petite is able to fit ladies out of the pack. For children, it may need to be trimmed smaller to fit. Some parents told us that it is not easy to customise the Totobobo Petite (TT-02) mask to fit their children, especially those smaller ones. Base on extensive study, we’ve redesigned the “Petite Simulator” which can be used to create a full size paper dummy for testing the size, and later serve as the template to customise the Petite mask for the user.
Following is a self-explanatory photo journal of the important steps to creates and trim the paper simulator, and use the result as a template to customise the actual Petite mask:
Download the file and print on A4 paper. Use the scale on top of the page to double check the scale is correct.
Print the simulator file on A4 paper, fold along the “fold line”.
You can make two Petite simulators from the print. Follow the outline and cut out the mask.
Use scotch tape to join the top (nose edge) and the bottom (chin edge).
cut away the small corners.
you have now a full size paper simulator of the Petite mask. Open up the paper mask and try it on your children’s face!
If the paper mask is too big, cut away the first line near to the chin-edge. Put it on the user’s face again to test the size.
Continue to cut the mask smaller, and test the size. Line by line until you get the mask size fitting your children.
Here showing the situation after the second line is cut away. Suppose this is the size fitting your children.
Now insert the paper simulator into the middle of the mask. Try to align the red circle with the filter cover.
Use the paper dummy as a guide, cut the mask with a pair of scissors. (The simple scissor shown in the photo is very good for cutting Totobobo mask)
The final result: a new Petite mask matching the size of your children. You may still need to ReShape the mask to fine tune the seal.
