Kidorable Umbrella Review

Recently I won another blog giveaway, and this time it was for a Kidorable Umbrella.  The first time I ever saw a Kidorable Umbrella was when I saw a picture of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes' daughter, Suri carrying a cute, red lady bug umbrella.  So cute!!!

But I have to be honest...The first thing I thought when I saw that picture besides "How Adorable!" was "That's probably super expensive..."  I mean it is Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes daughter carrying the umbrella.  After looking online and finding the exact umbrella, I found out that it was actually a Kidorable Umbrella and surprisingly, it wasn't super expensive.  At around $13.50 each, they are definitely in my price range.

OK, now like I said before, I recently got lucky and won a kidorable umbrella.  I chose to pick out one for my 5 year old son, Logan.  Kidorable has a wide umbrella section to pick from.  The options were:

  • Ballerina
  • Space Hero
  • Butterfly
  • Fairy
  • Fireman
  • Frog
  • Ladybug (just like Suri's)
  • Lotus Flower
  • Lucky Cat
  • Mermaid
  • Pirate
  • Dolphin
  • Bee
  • Bear
  • Dog
  • Lion
  • Panda
  • Zebra
  • Polka Dots
  • Characters
  • Houndstooth
Phew...I told you it was a wide selection.  I picked out the dinosaur umbrella for my son. 

About 1/3 of his toy organizer in his room is little plastic dinosaurs that he plays with so I figured he would enjoy the dinosaur umbrella too.

Now if I were picking out an umbrella for ME...I definitely would have choose the Panda umbrella.

  Yes, I am about to be 25 years old, and I am a mom, but I would have rocked that thing like nobodies business.  I don't even think it would have to be raining for me to be using it.  I LOVE pandas and that panda umbrella might be one of the cutest things I have ever seen.  But anyways, back to the dinosaur umbrella...oh, the sacrifices we make for being a mom ;)

The umbrella arrived very quickly, and when I opened it up, I was very impressed with the quality.  Also, I really liked how easy it was to open and close.  When I was little, my fingers got pinched when closing an umbrella and ever since then, I cringe at the thought of closing umbrellas.  I can admit it...I am afraid of closing umbrellas.  Haha, it sounds silly but I can still remember when I got my fingers pinched in that old umbrella and it really hurt.

So I go to close the umbrella, get my "Oh no, I'm closing an umbrella" face on and push the button down.  And well, it was easy.  The button is located at the top of the plastic piece, rather then at the bottom like some of the older umbrellas. 

 So there really is no way for fingers to get pinched. I guess the "Oh no, I'm closing an umbrella" face will be least when closing a Kidorable Umbrella.

You can find Kidorable Umbrellas on their website, as well as backpacks, raincoat, towels and much more.

I received this product by winning a blog giveaway.  All opinions are my own.  Have an Amazing, Awesome Day!!!
