Thanko - Folding Fan-brella

To make you feel a bit more comfortable on rainy humid days, Thanko has introduced a folding umbrella with mini electric fan - called "Folding Fan-brella".

Those blades of the mini electric fan are made of a soft material so it is worry-free - the blades won't hurt you.

Folding Fan-brella can be used as a sunshade as well (probably, you have wondered why so many Japanese girls use umbrellas when it's sunny…). It supports UPF 40+ cutting more than 95% of ultra violet rays.

  • Price: 2,980 yen
  • Color: black, light blue, light purple
  • Weight: 305g
  • Battery: 2 size AAA batteries
