The Noblo Umbrella Buddy Review and Giveaway! - CLOSED!


Have you ever gone to the beach and thought you had you umbrella secured in the sand only to have a big wind come along and throw your umbrella down the beach? I have found a great product that offers a solution to this problem! It's called the Noblo Umbrella Buddy! It is a bag that you fill full of sand and then anchors to your umbrella. No more umbrellas flying down the beach! My aunt has actually gotten a black eye from a runaway umbrella on the beach! These things can be dangerous!

We love going to the beach! My kid's love to build sand castles but I like them to be under the umbrella as much as possible to avoid sunburn! We have always had problems keeping our umbrellas from falling over and now that we have the Noblo Umbrella Buddy I can't wait to use it! We live in the midwest so aren't close to a beach, but on our next vacation, we will be bringing our Noblo Umbrella Buddy with us! I just think this is such a great idea! I really like the fact that it is lightweight to carry (since you already have so much other stuff to lug on and off the beach). Since you fill the Noblo Umbrella Buddy with sand, you can easily dump it out and have a light bag to carry home.



More About Noblo:


We are grateful for the many summer days at the beach with our children. With swimming, surfing, sand castles and sea creatures, the beach gives us so many ways to enjoy nature. While we all love to have fun, our number one priority as parents is safety at the beach. We can teach ourselves and our children about the many dangers at the beach but flying beach umbrellas are something we can't control.

Great things about the Noblo Umbrella Buddy

  • Manufactured in New Jersey, USA
  • Affordable for people and families retails at $14.99
  • Packaged in Eatontown, NJ by CVR; a local non-profit organization that hires mentally and physically handicapped individuals
  • $.05 a bag sold to be donated to USLA – United States Lifesaving Association
  • Invented by moms
  • It’s super easy to use
  • Available in bright green, pink, blue, yellow, turquoise, red, black, green, purple

Mothers of invention

After witnessing a horrible accident we then understood the urgent need for umbrella safety. It was then that we started a grassroots movement to raise awareness about the problem. Like all mothers in need we developed a simple device to anchor our umbrella. This enabled us to provide sun protection for our small children without the fear of our umbrella blowing away . Unfortunately, everyday countless umbrellas are blowing down the beach. We would like to see all umbrellas properly anchored for the safety, convenience and enjoyment of all beach goers.
