We are having trouble finding a face mask that fits our 2 year old. What have you all found that works? We're willing to use either cloth or disposable.

We really like the masks from Oso and Me (ordered online) although we added ear toggles which we ordered separately on Amazon. They have been the only ones which stayed above my daughter's nose without covering her eyes. They have a little pleat which helps with keeping them in place.
We've been getting masks from https://www.etsy.com/shop/LaPetiteSews since the pandemic started. The 3D design is comfortable for a toddler (size small) and they hold up well with regular washing (elastic wears out a bit but you can just tie it tighter or replace it). Masks we've (sadly) been using for 18 months are still in good condition.
I had the same issue for a while (in addition to my 2yo tearing off masks after 15 minutes). I have found that Happy Masks https://www.happymasks.com/collections/pro stay on, and she has worn it for more than an hour, so far, without tearing it off. The only issue is that while once they were easily available a month ago - with school starting and delta rampaging - the masks have been sold out and purchasing is based on a waitlist. So if you're not in a rush, get yourself on the waitlist, they allow 5 mask purchases per order right now: https://www.happymasks.com/pages/waitlist. Sounds ridiculous, but may be worth it. This is literally the only mask my 2yo will keep on. Good luck!
I am hoping that others reply as well because I’d be interested in trying some other kinds. So far the best fit we’ve found are the pleated Old Navy masks. They are cheap and thin so definitely not the best masks. And they are definitely not going to filter out smoke. But they fit his face and stay above his nose and mouth and he generally keeps it on so hopefully better than nothing.
I am also very interested in responses to this question! After reading through many reviews, I found Skip Hop cloth masks fit my 2-yr old well and she likes the designs so seems more willing to wear them longer. It's smaller than other kid-size masks, but the soft material has some give so it's more "stretchy" and flexible.
The Crayola reusable cloth masks have worked well for us. We got them when our daughter was about 18 months old and started wanting to wear masks like she saw us doing when we went out. The fit is very adjustable. We’ve found that being able to make the straps above and below the ear slightly different lengths really helps them stay on.
Just Play 3 ply kids face masks in small are great, very soft, and work well for my 2 year old. I've purchased at Target and on Amazon.
Vogmasks in the child size might work well for you as well.
We've been using Crayola Kids Face Masks with our two year old - they have adjustable straps and are the perfect size for 2 year old faces... and he loves the colors. :)
Our favorite are from Rothy’s. I also got some from Carter’s that fit well. Old Navy is popular too, however, I found those to be a little big.
We love Vistaprint masks for our small toddler and his folks!
Good old Crayola masks from Amazon (they run small and fit my 2nd percentile 2 year old at the time). Happy Masks in the smallest size. They are sold out though. :(
We have had great luck with these:
Found them at Henry Bear when we were in Cambridge, MA but they can be ordered directly online too. Can be used with a filter or not, adjustable ear loops and a wire at nose (that actually holds up!). Easy to wash and I air dry but they have been fine the times they made it into the drier too. We do size 3-7 and find it works as it’s adjustable.
We found masks with cars and planets at Daiso, they fit our toddler well without the need of adjusting straps.
