Umbrellas for Girls

Updated on September 16, 2013

The Best Umbrellas for Girls

There are lots of cute, adorable umbrellas for girls.

Girls enjoy being grown up and carrying around their own umbrella. It makes going out in the rain extra fun.

There are lots of great designs of umbrellas for girls including pink umbrellas, kitty umbrellas, novelty umbrellas and very stylish umbrellas.

When buying an umbrella for a young girl consider the following features:

Safety - Are there plastic covers on the ends of the umbrella so no pointed ends are sticking out?

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

Bright colors - If the umbrella has bright colors your child will be easier to spot!

Design - Little girls often like themed designs with characters they like. Perhaps they would prefer a themed umbrella with characters they've seen on TV. Or a princess, pink or mermaid themed umbrella may be more to their liking.

Easy to open - Some umbrellas have mechanisms which make them easy to open and close such as a button push.

This article gives lots of suggestions of cute umbrellas for girls.

Check them out below.

What Size Umbrella for Kids?

Umbrellas for young kids tend have a canopy with a diameter of around 26 to 28 inches. Standard adult umbrellas tend to range from around 44 inches to 48 inches.

Obviously the bigger diameter will be able to accommodate older and larger children.

The length of the umbrella is normally around 22 to 23 inches.

Pink Umbrellas for Girls

Many little girls love pink and there are some adorable pink umbrellas available. Little girls who love pink would be proud to carry the umbrellas below.

Take Care of Your Umbrella!

Follow these tips to help take care of you child's umbrella.

- Try not to use in torrential rain and strong winds. The umbrella is likely to turn inside out and be ruined in these conditions. A waterproof coat with a hood is a much better option.

- Leave your umbrella to dry when open and close it down afterwards. Closing down an umbrella before its dry means it is less likely to rust.

- When opening the umbrella open it downwards.

- Unless otherwise stated, just use a damp cloth and water to clean your umbrella. Don't use detergent as it can be harmful to the fabric.
