This is my second Unikko Umbrella - my first Unikko Umbrella (automatic one) has been a work horse and I have had no problems for 4 years, so I decided to get another one to keep it in my purse. Mini is surprising tiny but opens pretty wide, seems durable as well. Overall I am happy with this purchase!
ProsHandy, cute print, high quality - sturdy build.
ConsDon't see any so far
NICE AND STRONG UMBRELLA!

I got this in the small manual black Marimekko Unikko. When the umbrella first arrived, it was very difficult for me to open it up. After a few tries, I finally got it open but it seemed stiff. I was going to send it back but decided to try opening and closing it a few times. I did this until the kinks were out and it works fine now. It opens up pretty big for a small umbrella and seems strong. I usually prefer a manuel umbrella as they last longer than the automatic ones. And I love Marimekko Unikko! I would recomend this to anyone who likes manual umbrella's but you have to have a strong arm to get it open!
ProsBeautiful and strong!
ConsA little difficult to open and close, but gets better with use!
