The NOOFORMER Mini Travel Umbrella #review

Last week Mica walked out the door with a children’s umbrella ☔️. He texted me saying it is too small for his 13 1/2 yr old self.

When I saw that an umbrella was up to review, I was all about it.

 The company has all the star ratings.


Mica loves space anything. The inside of it is space related. He likes black too, so the outside works as well.

The company sells 7 different color options on Amazon. If you don't like space, then no worries. Lots of variety = happy customers.

The umbrellas are tiny! That makes them easy to fit in a purse, bag, or backpack! Size: Weight( 8oz), Length (6.7 inches).


It was so hard to open up! I thought I was going to break it! Travis tried. He said, "I think it's broken!" We finally got it to work. If it's that hard for us adults to get it to pop open, I can't imagine Mica being able to get it.

I felt a bit like Julia Roberts in the movie Pretty Woman when she went to the Opera and couldn't get the Opera Binoculars to work. Yep I've seen that movie way too many times. I'm showing my age because it's an old movie. She kept saying, "They're broken!" over and over again. Then Richard Gere leaned into her and showed her how they work. Except Travis is no Richard Gere. He couldn't get it to work either.

Finally after about giving up we got it to work. Apparently we're not alone. Others stated they had trouble with the same thing on Amazon. I ran into a lot of this with kid umbrellas. I was happy I found kid umbrellas that worked great! It's too bad they can't just be bigger with more adult like pattern on them.

Sometimes when I agree to review products I don't know a whole lot about them before they are sent to me. It's my job as a reviewer to figure out the products to review them. It's a sun umbrella. In Nebraska we do have 3 good months of sun, but no beach to enjoy that sun in one spot. If you live on or by a beach, this sun umbrella may be the thing for you! It does have 95% UV protection. Possibly it's a sign that we need to go to the beach! What we need is a rain umbrella! They do say on the website that it's big enough for rain. Is it for rain, or not? We haven't had rain this week to give it a shot.

It's hard to get back into the sleeve. I can imagine if it's wet, it's near impossible! It's more of a sun in the sun it should be fine.

Where to Get It: for $16.99.


Last week would have been our week for trying the umbrella out in the rain. This week it's hot. After much frustration, and feeling like we were going to break it we did get it extended.



Mr. Mica with his new umbrella:

Do you prefer a rain coat, an umbrella, or running in the rain?


I got this product for a discounted price to help with this review. The company did not tell me what to say. All opinions are my own.

That's so frustrating when you can't get it to open or back into the sleeve. This does look like a better pattern for him though since he's older now.

I tried an upside down umbrella once, but my sister fell in love w/it when I gave it to her. I like the ones that fold and go into a sleeve (easy to carry). Also I def. would rather have a rain umbrella vs. a sun version. ;)
