I bought this for my daughter to use , when everyone else had theirs.
This umbrella is one of her favourite things and the moment there is rain she is calling for umbrella and so I am off searching for it ( in the last place she left it probably ).
The build it OK, however I have encountered 2 flaws. The first was one of the pins hold one of the curved metals strips to the supporting arm fell out. I mended it a few times and the last time successfully. I will note this has only, so far, happened on one of the pins and all others have held.
The next note is that the curved metal stripes are attached to the umbrella with thread that after a while unthread themselves and while it is not a serious problem it is something that could have been avoided in the beginning.
This is not an expensive item and as such I accept the failures and have worked around them, and the umbrella is still going and still keeping my daughter entertained and dry.
