Anyone know where to get good kids' umbrellas please?

DD (4) is desperate for an umbrella for Christmas, and if she gets one DS (7) will probably want one too. I would like to get ones that aren't likely to break in the first 2 seconds though, or can be exchanged easily if they do.

So far I am considering either an M&S colour-changing one or a Frozen one for DD (though not sure how much longer the Frozen craze will last) - but would be glad of any other suggestions to consider. I've not seen much that I like for DS yet though, there are various character ones (Spiderman etc.) but he's not really into those particularly so far. Thanks for any ideas!

DM bought all of the various grandchildren a character umbrella each from Mothercare a couple of years ago - they are all still surviving 3GC), so relatively sturdy. Might be worth checking what they have in at the moment?

Update - I got some today! I got DD the colour-changing one cos she will find that really cool I think. Then I got lucky in another shop and managed to find a Hatley one which is navy with dinosaur skeletons/fossils on which should be right up DS's street! So feeling quite smug now grin

And rightly so! You should probably have one of these too - wine fgrin

Good choice - we have had the colour changing ones for 2 years and they are still going strong
