Best Kids Umbrellas 2018

As devoted parents, we want to get the best things we can for our children, especially on practical items like umbrellas that protect children from the rain and snow.  But how many times, as a parent, have you gone out in the rain only to find that your trusty umbrella breaks as soon as you open it?  If i had a dollar for every time that that happened… I’d have at least 10 dollars.

So lets save our kids by giving them the best and most durable umbrellas we can find them.  In this review, then. we’ll look at our top picks for kids umbrellas.

Considerations when choosing a child’s umbrella

Don’t let the looks fool you – Your son or daugher may go wild when the see the picture of that umbrella fashioned after their favorite Disney character, but if it is cheaply made or fragile it is not going to be of any use to you.  Also, broken umbrellas trend to have sticky out bits and sharpe edges, which is definitely not something we want anywhere near our precious little ones.

No pointy bits or sharp edges – Although you might find the on some adult umbrellas, we don’t want spike or anything like that for our kids.  We want to give them a tool that keeps them dry and warm, not a weapon they can injure themselves or others with.  Make sure your children’s umbrella has rounded tips of rubber or plastic.

A good solid mechanism –  Have a close look at the umbrella mechanism.   Whether it is automatic or manual closing, it should be smooth and gentle, and its parts should be solid and robust.  Also, please be aware that your child should take extra special care with an umbrella that opens and closes a button press; it is very easy for little hands and tiny finger to get caught in these if they are not careful.

Smooth handles – whether they are plastic or wooden, we want a nice smooth handle on our childs umbrella.  Children have soft and delicate hands, and we don’t want rough edges cutting them or giving them splinters when they use it.

Afforable yet not too expensive – You need to find a balance in choosing the right umbrella for your kid.  On the one hand, you don’t want a cheap one that is going to fall to pieces on the way to school or in the playground.  However, it is not worth paying a alot of money for an umbrella that they will outgrow in a few years.  Its also easy for children to put them down or forget them somewhere, so it shouldn’t be too hard to replace one.

It might sound like a lot of things to remember for a simple thing like a childs umbrella, but if you get a good one that will last a long time, your kids will be very thankful on rainy days.  Plus, especially for kids with long hair, they can get to school in the rain without catching cold OR ruining their fantastic new haircut.
