Superhero face shields
Thai designer Maysa Talerd
uses her love of animation
to make face covering fun
(SOUNDBITE) (Thai) 31-YEAR-OLD FACE SHIELD DESIGNER, MAYSA TALERD, SAYING:
"Normally, a face shield is transparent, so people might get bored. With these fun designs, they will encourage people to wear them and raise awareness of the importance of face shields. At least with the cartoon characters, kids will want to wear them and show off to their friends at school."
Maysa has made 500 shields
sold for around $5.70 each
"I think this might become the main income for me in the future because toy stores are contacting me to do wholesale. Sometimes, they order 50 to 100 pieces which makes it easier for me to sell."
