I bought this umbrella as part of a duck-themed birthday present (umbrella, books, and bath toys) for my 2 year old nephew. I opened and closed it several times before wrapping it, and it seemed very sturdy and easy to extend--not cheap feeling like some of the kids' umbrellas that are out there. The design is really creative and well-done with the beak in front, and the beak seems very durable. I also liked the curved handle, as opposed to a straight one. The best part was that my nephew was fascinated with it--especially the eyes and the beak on the front. He loved walking around with his "new friend." I am very pleased with this umbrella!
