Top kids umbrellas - cool modern umbrellas for kids

Birdie’s favorite umbrella is broken. Not just a little bit broken, but a whole heckuvalot broken. Of course, she still demands to use it. Even though she’s walking around with a half-cocked umbrella, the other half smushed flat against her head. She’s a determined little girl. But it makes me sad to see her trying so hard with something so uncooperative!

So. It’s time for a new umbrella. But I didn’t realize how few fun umbrella options there were to choose from. My first (and one of my favorite) gifts from my husband was the Magritte-inspired clouds umbrella you see below, it’s my baby. She had a sweet kids-sized two-tiered Cirque du Soleil model. But, alas. Now it’s time to upgrade.

So I’ve selected 8 umbrellas to share with you. Above, you have four kid-sized umbrellas – mostly about 30″ in diameter. Below, you have some playful full-sized umbrellas – around 40″ – which are also super cool . The yellow goggles with the submarine periscope? Hell yes, I want one! Besides, I think now that Birdie is 5, she could handle a bigger umbrella just fine. What do you think?
