Their product development team came up with an ingenious idea to create face shields using headbands from the firm's Hedbanz game fitted with PET inserts.

Spin Master's first shipment arrived at Michael Garron Hospital in Toronto, Ontario this week. The company are now producing more than 10,000 per day and will be shipping to hospitals in North America and eventually globally, to help support the selfless work of the amazing healthcare workers in the fight against COVID-19.
