Dyson vacuums are not just for adults anymore - kiddie replicas exists, and they actually work! The range of Dyson replicas by Casdon are some of the most popular pretend-play toys around right now, and given that they encourages kids to tidy up, we're not surprised parents love them!
Casdon is the genius company behind other classic replica cleaning toys like Little Henry and Little Hetty vacuums and mops, and other replica household appliances, but I have to say that a kiddie Dyson vac is extra special.
The Kids' Dyson Handstick ($49) is one of the bestselling units in the range, and is an exact replica of the real thing, but with a much more friendly price tag. It has a simple push-button start that is easy for kids to operate, and it can be used either with a short handle or long.
Probably my top pick of the range is the Kids' Dyson DC14 ($56.39), which has a upright style and is modelled after one of the most popular Dysons ever. I feel like this would be one of the easiest for kids to manage (although they are all very kid-friendly), and it measures around 69 centimetres in height - perfect for preschoolers.
The Kids' Dyson Vacuum DC22 ($64.59) is also identical to the real vacuum, and it has on-board tools and a detachable wand.
Something very cool about these vacuums — aside from the fact that they actually pick up small debris — is the simulated cyclone compartment that allows kids to watch everything get vacuumed up. Coloured beads are included to get kids started on their cleaning antics, and to add to that whirling cyclone affect.
The Dyson kids' vacuum can pick up only small materials and need batteries to work. (Buy rechargeables, you'll save a fortune!)
