Turning Childhood / umbrella handle

Turning Childhood
Turning Childhood

Children always tend to spin the umbrella in rainy days and enjoy the fun of water bouncing. Based on the observations, this design is developed to provide long lasting operation and create more fun for the kids. There is gear structure on the umbrella handle to transmit the rotating manpower, turn the central rod, and spin the whole umbrella. The outer housing is used to cover the gear and keep operations safely. Kids can rotate the umbrella constantly and enjoy the fun of bouncing raindrops on the umbrella. Moreover, when they arrive home, they can spin the umbrella and get rid of rainwater effectively.
