For kids, the Haorong Pigeon Mask is the best choice as the neck is shorter so they can see out of the eye holes with ease.

1. The Johnnies Pigeon Mask

  • Most realistic-looking mask.
  • Covers the neck nicely.
  • Darker color means eyeholes aren’t as noticeable.
  • Our favorite of the three.
  • Check it out on Amazon.

2. The Bodysocks Pigeon Mask

  • Much larger beak than the other masks.
  • Eyeholes are very large and visible this makes it easier to breathe in than the Johnnies mask but it ruins the look a bit.
  • Our second favorite of the three.
  • Check it out on Amazon.

3. The Haorong Pigeon Mask
