How to customize TOTOBOBO mask to fit small face?

TOTOBOBO mask can be cut to size

The TOTOBOBO mask is the world’s first customizable respirator. Other products are only available in a particular size that only fits a particular age range and facial structure. For everyone else, there is little else that can be done.
TOTOBOBO, on the other hand, is capable of being trimmed to fit a wide range of facial sizes for optimal comfort and filtering. The mask fits most adults and can be modified to fit children as young as 5 years old. TOTOBOBO is the most versatile protective mask on the market. Adjusting the mask’s size is simple, just follow these steps:

Note: Use a pair of clean and sharp scissors. Wash your hands before starting.

You first need to determine how small you want to trim the mask. You can make a quick estimate by covering the mask on the user’s face, or better yet, get a TOTOBOBO dummy mask set. If you are not sure about the accurate size, I suggest you to trim the mask one ring at a time. The mask should form a snug fit to the face, but not so tight as to be uncomfortable. Take this into account when trimming the mask. Remember: measure twice, cut once.
You then carefully cut the material of the mask starting from the bottom. Inserting the scissors, follow the curvature of the mask along one of the ridges as you cut and make a complete loop. Trim any excess for comfort and test size as necessary. The excess material can be disposed of, and the mask is ready for use.

Once the mask is cut to fit the desired size, it is ready for repeated, long term protection.

Step 1 - start the cut from the bottom of the mask

1 - start the cut from the bottom of the mask

Step 2 - insert the scissors into one size of the opening

2 - insert the scissors into one side of the opening

Step 4 - turning around to the other side
6 - almost done

4 - make a loop to the starting point

7 - see! you've got your small mask now

5 - see! you've got your small mask now
