I am a huge fan of the Me To You range, and for Christmas last year I received the Me To You umbrella which I was absolutely thrilled with as I really needed an umbrella, and being from that range made it even better.
The umbrella is a soft pink colour with the familiar tatty teddy picture repeated several times round the edges of the umbrella. The umbrella has a pink cover for when you wish to store it, although like all covers it is quite hard to get it back in once you have opened the umbrella!! The cover also has a picture of the teddy on and the familiar Me To You logo. The umbrella handle has a plastic hoop attached so you can carry it with ease when it isn't raining, though I have seen people with the hoop attached to their bags however, this isn't something I have tried but I would imagine it is quite easy to do this.
While the umbrella is lovely to look at, that is pretty much where the good points about it end. The quality of the umbrella is very low, the fabric is very flimsy and I was shocked that the umbrella just caved in heavy rain. I would really expect an umbrella to be able to withstand the weight of rain, but this really doesn't, in effect it just folds around your head so as well as being pointless it makes you look quite stupid walking down the street with it! The handle is a cheap plastic and is really quite uncomfortable to hold as it is a funny oval shape and doesn't fit snugly in your hand. I dread to think how this umbrella would be if it was a particularly windy day, I would think it would be inside out within seconds!
The cost of the Me To You umbrella is £12.00 which initially doesn't seem too bad, but when you see how poor it actually is you realise it is an awful lot of money to pay for something that is pointless.
I never thought I would be unable to recommend a Me To You product, however I would say my advice is to avoid this at all costs!
I give the umbrella one out of five Dooyoo stars, and that is only because it is cute!
