For this post, I have put together a collection of the best kids’ umbrellas currently available. For more best buys to keep your kids warm and dry see my guides to waterproofs for kids.
MY TOP PICK:
My pick for best overall kids umbrella are the printed umbrellas range from Hatley’s because they offer a fantastic range of designs (such as sharks or hearts), are very good quality, safe for little ones to put up and down and receive rave reviews from parents.
A fun, easy to use and colourful brolly can make all the different to a joyful trip in the rain. Kids love their shape and hiding underneath watching and listening to the rain fall safely above their heads.
The best umbrella for kids should be safe to put and up down without any pinching of skin.
You also want them to be light and easy grip onto. They should be sturdy and hold strong against the elements. It’s also essential they are a bright bold design to appeal to your little ones.
