Taiwanese designers, Yu-Ting Cheng, Yu-Hsun Chung and Shaw-Chen Chen, have created a fun and functional product in their Wheel and Seal umbrellas. Designed for kids who love splishing and sploshing in the rain, the umbrellas feature a pair of spongy wheels (or an absorbent seal) at the tip of the cane that absorb water from the inevitable puddles they pass through and leave a trail of smiley faces… Not only does this encourage urban kids to get out and enjoy nature at its best, it also spreads whimsical joy to passersby.
