Performance

The Stephen Joseph Pop Up Umbrella isn’t winning any awards when it comes to high winds, but it didn’t have to. For starters, it’s a children’s umbrella. You wouldn’t have your kids out in high wind weather that can lift them off the ground to begin with. What it does do is provide adequate covering against rain and light winds. And it’s easy to wield considering it’s lightweight, not like the Repel Windproof Umbrella or EEZ-Y Windproof Travel Umbrella; those are better suited for adults.

Design

What Stephen Joseph did to make the umbrella easy for kids is the lack of buttons. It’s one of those pull opening umbrellas, which ensures your little ones fingers aren’t pinched when fiddling with buttons. At the same time, it’s just as easy to close. The canopy is 14-inches, making it yet again ideal for little children. And with over 13 different designs, they can find one that fits them. The canopy is hand-washed, 100% polyester. Just wipe it down and it’s good to go.

Value

We can’t think of a better umbrella for tiny hands. Stephen Joseph’s Pop Up Umbrella is way too easy for kids to make use of. During the summer, when rain is both cooling and warm, they’ll get plenty of use out of it. And given how cheap it’s priced for—just $17—when it’s on its final days, it’ll be easy to replace. For extra value, considering picking up matching raincoats and rain boots from Stephen Joseph. If you want something a little more sturdy for your kids, the Sharpty Inverted Umbrella is listed for the same price.

While it isn’t sturdy like other umbrellas on our list, it didn’t matter. The Stephen Joseph Pop Up Umbrella is best in the hands of children, given the number of designs. It’s very lightweight, meaning your kids can’t pull the “too heavy” excuse, nor is it hard to use with the exclusion of buttons.
