Parents are raving about this $27 Dyson vacuum toy for kids that actually cleans floors
I've always found it weird how so many kids are over the moon when they receive toys based on an adult's day-to-day life. When I was a kid, I loved my tool belt, adored my play kitchen, and couldn't get enough of my mini dustpan and broom.
Now, I cannot stand DIY, barely have time to cook myself a meal, and cleaning is about 73 things down on my "To Do" list.
However, a new toy vacuum has gotten parents and children very excited about household chores. Available on Amazon for $26.99 (or $18.99 for a purple one and $39.99 for a pink/grey one), parents have left more than 2,000 five-star comments.
Check out the unexpected hit in the video below:
Casdon's 25-inch high replica looks just like the standard ball Dyson - BUT IT'S SO DIDDY AND CUTE.
Suitable for ages three and up, the product's description reads:
"This cute Dyson vacuum is a direct replica of the life-size Dyson Ball Vacuum to help your little helper tidy in style! Little ones adore role play and pretending that they are doing jobs around the house – just like the grown-ups.
"This Dyson Ball upright vacuum cleaner has been specially designed to be true to life, right down to the last detail. The replica design features real working suction, realistic sounds, bright colors, twist and turn action just like the real thing!
"There is also a removable dustbin at the back to empty the debris. The simulated cyclone action has moving colorful balls in a clear cylinder. Your little helper will really feel part of your world while developing essential life skills."
One Amazon customer writes: "My girl uses this every time I am vacuuming. She doesn't care about [the] simple vacuuming features this has, she mostly likes seeing the "dirt" spin and the flexibility it has just like her parents'. Our younger child also enjoys playing with this."
Another five-star reviewer writes: "This vacuum is the same brand as ours. My 15-month-old is obsessed with vacuums. He absolutely loves this!!! It is the perfect size, it looks real, makes noise and the little balls move. I wasn't expecting much, but this product really delivered!"
