It’s back to school for many kids with the holidays and circuit breaker ending, but to stay protected against Covid-19, face masks or face shields are still required to be worn by all. Plastic face shields might come in useful for kids since they are much more comfortable than face masks that can get stuffy and humid easily. They also provide protection for your kiddo’s entire face, while also ensuring full vision so they can have it on at all times! While all pre-school and primary students in Singapore will receive a face shield eventually, we’ve scouted where you can order them online for your child and yourself too.
Shopee has almost everything you can think of, including protective face shields for kids. The ones available on their online marketplace are extra adorable too, since they come in a bear or bunny design that little ones won’t resist wearing. They only cost SG$2.98 each, with a cap of 5 masks per order due to increased demand - so make sure you get your orders in quick!
For a face shield that is not only functional but fashionable as well, Amazon has just the thing. Attached to a bright yellow cotton bucket hat, the faceguard will also shield children’s face from any bacteria or dust. It’ll also help protect your little one from the sun’s heat and UV rays for a day at the park or the beach! Best part? The shield is detachable, so the hat can be an accessory on its own too.
Obbo is a protective equipment supplier where you can directly order face shields from. If an elastic band causes discomfort around your head after a while, you can choose the ones worn like a pair of spectacles instead so they rest on your ears. Each face shield with spectacles cost SG$6.50 but there’s free delivery for orders above SG$20 so there’s no harm in getting more for your family or neighbors as well.
Lazada has easy-to-use face shields to protect you or your loved ones from germs and bacteria in the air outdoors. The bendable plastic sheet also ensures that the sides of your face are covered, and is anti-fog too so it won’t blur your vision in different temperatures. The adult one costs SG$5 while the kids version is slightly cheaper at SG$4.70, and you can get them all in the same, simple design to wear as a family!
If your kiddo is fussy about the design of their face shield, let them choose their favorite from Qoo10, since there are five different animal designs each with its own unique color. Not only will they protect your child’s well being from external factors, but it’ll also prevent them from touching their face – a common habit that is hard to kick. Each costs SG$8 but look out for their occasional discounts to get them for a cheaper price.
To get face shields for both kids and adults, Safety First has a variety available. Besides the bucket hat design, they also have designs with panda faces and ears for a cute detail. Ladies can also spice up their look with a summer hat face shield in beige or pink that serve dual purposes since the shield is detachable as well. With free tracked shipping, you’ll be able to get it in no time too!

You won’t have to worry about your face shield being too big to fit your child with the ones from Eezee. Their protective face shields come with an elastic band that can be customized to fit different head sizes, so you’ve got kids to teens covered. The shield is also able to be pushed upwards when it isn’t needed, which will come in handy for meal times!
If you’d rather save time and effort cleaning your child’s face shield everyday, buy a pack from AliExpress for about SG$12, that includes 5 pieces so you can interchange them daily while worn ones are cleaned after use. They come in colorful, funky designs that include ice cream, rainbow or animal patterns. The straps are fully adjustable as well, to suit your kid’s comfortability.
Besides online sites, you can also order face shields from users on Carousell, like @homieshousehold. You’ll easily mistake them for party headbands, with their unicorn, dinosaur, and even Sailor Moon designs! Each shield costs SG$3, but it’ll be SG$2.50 each if you’re doing a group buy of at least 50 pieces – perfect for a full classroom of students. You can also choose for your order to be couriered for SG$5 more or delivered for SG$7.
