Brolly good

Think of rain and you think of yucky journeys spent hunched beneath a depressing nylon canopy. But all that’s about to change thanks to our spectacularly twinkly Twilight Umbrellas. Guaranteed to brighten up the rainiest of days, these hi-tech brollies utilise fibre optics, three AAA batteries and lots of LEDs to create a truly magical effect.

There are two Twilights available, the Starlight featuring twinkly white lights, or the Rainbow featuring constantly phasing multicoloured lights. Talk about a brolly good show. Better still there are lights on both sides of the canopy, so you can impress soggy onlookers without having to peer into shop windows to see the show. You’ll feel like an extra in Blade Runner every time you hit the street.

If you’re worried about bumping into your boss whilst brandishing a brolly this jolly, worry not. The Twilight only performs its light show when you press the on/off switch in its handle. And although the lining is silver (hi ho), both Twilights are business-like black on the outside. ‘Really boss? You saw someone sploshing through puddles holding a funky technicolour brolly? How strange.’

Already creating a storm amongst umbrella aficionados (of course they exist), Twilight Umbrellas are sure to cheer you up on dreary wintery days. And thanks to a one button opening mechanism, putting up your Twilight is easier than, erm, pushing a button.

Unless you live in the middle of a desert we can see no reason why you wouldn’t want one of these incredibly cool rain repellers right now. In fact with a Twilight in your bag or briefcase you’ll be praying for a downpour every time you leave the house. So don’t be wet, be bright and hit the Buy button.

Customer Reviews

This umbrella is fab! got one for me and a pressie for my sister last xmas, now have had to buy another as my mum was jealous and wanted one too! thanks Firebox!
Samantha Cuff - 27th April 2013
I'm currently debating whether to buy one of these. . We get pretty heavy rain and winds. . The wind can get so bad it will twist the brolly inside out now if it was to do this and rain got inside. . Would I get electrocuted. . I don't want to risk that, so any risks?:).

I don't normally write reviews but I had to for this. I had the old model (lights just on the outside)for about 3 years and have loved it. So when it broke, (it was old and I got hit by a massive gust of wind that nearly took me away like Mary Poppins let alone my poor umbrella) anyway I rushed quickly to buy a new one and ordered it straight away with the standard delivery tariff. It arrived the very next day!! Thank you firebox, this is a truly awesome umbrella and is well worth the money, strong build and will last you a very long time!

I bought this for my girlfriend, who loves it, but there seems to be a bit of a problem with the closing mechanism. The metal catch that holds the umbrella shut only juts out by about a milimeter, so the umbrella quite often opens without pressing the release button. Is this normal?

Firebox says: That doesn't sound normal Alec, please drop us an e-mail to with your order details and we'll have a look at it for you.
Bought this as an Xmas gift for my step-daughter, she nearly got mugged on the school path every one wanted to know where it was from. Thanks.

Received my Twilight Umbrella yesterday (overnight postage, fantastic) and I am sooooo pleased that it is going to be raining for the next couple of days. I used the umbrella for the first time today and absolutely love it. I love the silver inner lining and the material seems to be so much stronger than other umbrellas I have purchased for a similar price (that do not come with lights). Thank you Firebox for lighting up my rainy days (literally).
