About Mary Poppins Umbrellas
Flying high above the city, Mary Poppins turns the humble umbrella into a magical accessory. Mary Poppins' umbrellas feature a parrot head for a handle that makes them look just like the original item carried by the famous nanny blown by the east wind to London. The parrot is dark green with lighter accents and has large black eyes circled in blue as well as a big black beak. The character came to life in 1934 and you can still find Mary Poppins' books by P. L. Travers that are fun to read. The "Mary Poppins" Disney movie from 1964 is available on DVD, and remains a hit with children and adults alike. The story has even more success as a Broadway musical. The umbrella is part of the Disney on Broadway Collection and it makes a wonderful gift for fans of the whimsical story and fabulous songs. Many items on eBay are available in gift boxes so that they are ready to present to friends or loved ones. Mary Poppins' umbrellas make you want to sing and dance among the chimney tops even on the rainiest days.
