I have seen this too, but I think it's a bug that toddlers are carrying umbrellas.

They don't have the option to take or change umbrellas on the umbrella stand and the animation to hold and use them isn't designed for them. I don't think they are meant to have them at all.

This was caused by toddlers getting the "trait_Umbrella_User" trait. I have a mod that fixes this up now on Tumblr - look for thefreshsims, and click "My Mods" on the top bar.

@Bra1nBlast3dYep that is most likely a bug, I never seen a toddler playing outside in the rain with a Umbrella, I wonder how you can invite a npc toddler over in the first place if they can't speak that great? This is the main reason the Play Date thing is useless to me, is unless you know who the parents are and are friends you can't get other toddlers to join for a play date.

What I did to reproduce was to create a new save with my sim on an empty lot, set the weather to a heavy rain, and then use the summon cheat to bring Evie Delgato (pre-made toddler) to the lot.

I have a similar problem. The difference is that it's the arm that stretches, and it happens to played toddlers when they take an outdoor stair during rain. Anyway, the real bug is probably that toddlers have umbrellas even though they shouldn't.

I wonder how they're carrying umbrellas, though? My toddlers don't really stretch like how they might do when they do a child/adult interaction, but it definitely happens when they're outside and raining.
It isn't bothersome but weird, honestly.
