Updated on September 15, 2013

There are lots of umbrellas for boys with pictures and features they will love including umbrellas featuring dinosaurs and trains!

Boys will enjoy being playing with and carrying around their own umbrella. It makes going out in the rain extra fun.

There are lots of great designs of umbrellas for boys including blue umbrellas, cars umbrellas, novelty umbrellas and very trendy umbrellas.

My own sons like playing with their umbrellas in the house too. They enjoy twirling them around and pretend play. I know opening umbrellas inside the house is meant to be unlucky - but fingers crossed we are okay so far.

This article gives lots of suggestions of funky umbrellas for boys.

Check them out below.

Factors To Consider When Buying An Umbrella for Your Child

There are some things you should consider when buying an umbrella for a boy.

Safety - There should be safety covers / guards on the end of the spokes of the umbrella to stop them injuring themselves with the umbrella ends.

Ease of use - Is it easy to open and close. If buying online you can check reviews for information.

Handle - Is the handle designed so it's easy for your child to hold.

Colors - You could consider choosing bright colors so you can spot your child if they run ahead.

Size - Is it the right size for your child. Is it easy for them to hold and carry.

Umbrella Frame - The umbrella frame can be made out of tempered steel, aluminium or fiberglass. Tempered steel is often heavy for a child. Aluminium is more lightweight but can bend easily. Fiberglass frames are often a good choice because they are lightweight but strong.

Umbrella Fabric - Most umbrellas are made out of polyester, nylon or cotton. If the umbrella is coated in teflon this is good as this means they tend to dry out quickly.

Umbrellas with Boys' Favorite Characters

Taking Care of Your Child's Umbrella

We all know what children can be like. They don't always take the best care of things. So here are some tips to make sure they last as long as possible.

Before opening it shake it gently to open the folds

Try not to let kids use the umbrella as a walking stick, sword or light saber!

Dry umbrellas thoroughly before closing them.

Make sure you fold the umbrella correctly when you have finished using it - this will help maintain its correct shape.

Keep umbrellas out of strong wind as much as possible.

Heat is not good for umbrellas so don't put it next to a radiator or leave it in a hot car. Likewise dry umbrellas in the shade rather than in bright sunlight.
