To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I ordered this umbrella for Easter. It arrived at the end of July. Other than that it's great. My son loves the shark and it doesn't have a release button so I won't pinch fingers. You just slide it up and down.
This umbrella is better than I expected. It seems sturdy, and I was surprised to find that the tail and dorsal fin are wired into the open/close mechanism of the umbrella. They stand up firmly when umbrella is opened and collapse back down when it closes. Great buy!
Umbrella is really cute and just as pictured! With more than occasional use by a 3 year old, it does not open up into a round shape anymore though. It opens up more in the shape of an oval or football. I've tried to fix it, but not sure how to get it back to a round shape. I'm not sure this would have happened if it wasn't being played with by a 3 year old though, so may not be a fault of the product itself!
Bought for my tk 5 year old. He was able to open and close it easily. Small enough to hang with his backpack. And got so many compliments. Broke after a couple of months because he sat on one of the plastic sticks that hold open the umbrella but still usable. I think with some hot glue or gorilla glue ill be able to fix it. So glad i bought it.
My son loves his shark umbrella. Poor dear has been waiting for a rainy day and finally had a chance to use it today. He used to have both the shark and dinosaur rain boots a few sizes ago and we have been pleased with the quality of all the Stephen Joseph products.
