Kidorable: Rain Boots and Umbrellas Review

Thanks to Kidorable for the items to help with this review

Kidorable, a leading designer and wholesaler of children's products, transforms everyday, functional kids' apparel and accessories into objects that excite children's imaginations and enrich their lives at play. Kidorable is distinguished by their high quality, unique collections - from frogs to fairies, dinosaurs to dolphins, and ladybugs to lotus flowers - sold at apparel, shoe and gift retailers across the globe.



While we're currently seeing a lot of snow here in Indiana, now that March is here, we'll soon see lots of rain. I wanted to prepare our two oldest girls for the weather change with a review from Kidorable because they catch the bus every morning and I wanted them to have the right gear going to and from school five days a week.


For this review I chose the butterfly theme for Madison who is seven and the ladybug theme for McKenzie who is 5. Madison's whole room is decorated in butterflies so I knew she would love this theme. McKenzie was nicknamed "Bug" from very early on after a lady bug toy my mother gave her, so I found the lady bug theme fitting for her as well because of this. 


This was such a fun little photo opp for the girls. From the moment they saw their new accessories, they were beyond excited! The umbrella is a little top heavy for McKenzie, but I think with practice and more use, she'll get adjusted and be just fine. 


Madison wears a size 13 shoe, and her rain boots are a size 2. I looked at their size charts and went off their ages vs their foot sizes and they fit really well with enough room to grow for several months and possibly more. Her favorite part of the rain boots is that the butterflies have antennas on them. I don't personally see how those could last a long time without breaking, but time will tell! The umbrella also has antennas that stick out of the top and that's a cute affect along with the wings. The butterfly is simple, but stands out well, and she's excited about the first day that she gets to take these new items to school. 


McKenzie's rain boots are a size 12, and her normal tennis shoes range from 11 to 11 1/2. They're a bit heavy and she's a bit clumsy, so I've seen her stumble a couple times, but this is something she'll get used to. The umbrella for her as I said earlier is a bit heavy, but she likes that it's big enough to surround her and come down to ensure she stays dry. I'm trying to teach her how to shut the umbrella when she's done using it, and that will take some time to push the button correctly, but I'm very glad there's a guard instead of the metal button for them to push. I remember pinching my fingers as a kid on these so I'm glad they don't have to deal with that. 


I adore the handles of each umbrella!!! As you can see above, they're matching with the animal theme, yet smooth and easy to handle. I'm glad they also have string on each umbrella so the girls can carry them around their wrist for extra support when they're not in use. 


All the items on the Kidorable website can also be paired with other accessories like rain coats, book bags, towels, gloves, hats, scarves and more. They have styles like Ballerina, Dinosaur, Fairy, Fireman, Frog, Pirates, and even Dora or Spongebob!! Some umbrellas can also come in an adult version as well so you could match your child if you wanted to. 

The umbrellas average $18 a piece and the rain boots average $35 a piece. The rain coat is around $45, but they offer package deals in the different matching themes. 


Shop Kidorable just in time for Spring, and find them on Facebook & Twitter
You can also find them in stores like Macy's, and a store locator to see local companies near you!
