Noblo Umbrella Buddy Aids Beach Safety

Noblo Beach Umbrella

Noblo Beach UmbrellaThere are so many safety considerations on a beach vacation, that sometimes it’s seems like it’s more work than fun.  Sunscreen, water safety, jelly fish, and all the other potential hazards of spending the day on the beach multiply even more when you’re vacationing with children.  The Noblo Umbrella Buddy, created by two moms concerned about the dangers of unsecured beach umbrellas blowing around on the beach, lets travelers enjoy the beach while also enjoying sun protection.

Small enough to fit in your beach tote, the umbrella buddy attaches easily with velcro, and the uses beach sand to weigh down your beach umbrella, anchoring it into the sand and keeping it from flying down the beach.  (Those flying umbrellas are apparently not some freak occurrences, not if those reports of legal settlements are true.)  It folds up small enough to easily fit in your beach tote.

Manufactured in the USA (New Jersey) and packaged by citizens with disabilities through the Center for Vocational Rehabilitation in Eatontown, NJ, the Noblo Beach Umbrella comes in hot pink, bright green, teal, and blue.  It can be purchased online for $14.99, plus $3 shipping and handling.
