If you’ve ever had a steady stream of rain trickle down your back while you’re outside, then you know how icky that sensation can be. More often than not, this usually occurs when you’re trying to cover your kiddo with your umbrella during a downpour — and well, there’s probably not enough room for the both of you. So as you fill your shopping cart with must-haves and items you absolutely don’t need, check out this list of the best umbrellas for kids on Amazon.
The cute thing about kids’ umbrellas is that they’re so completely colorful. Unlike adult ones, which tend to be solid colors (and really, kind of boring), the ones for children are sometimes shaped like animals and boast bright and bold handles that make carrying them something that your kiddo won’t complain about. “Most umbrellas are recommended for use ages 3 and up,” Dr. Alison Mitzner, MD, a pediatrician tells Romper in an email. “Their gross motor skills are really improving as are the fine motor skills, which are the small muscles of the child’s hands.” So by this age, your child should have the necessary skills to be able to open, close, and hold an umbrella with ease — and hopefully not pinch their fingers while doing so.
So if you’re looking for an umbrella that will keep your kid cute and dry, these 15 umbrellas are excellent options. Here’s to rainy days that lead to sunny skies!
