Dyson Made a Kid-Size Vacuum That Keeps Selling Out–Yes, a Vacuum for Your Kids
Dyson products aren't just on adult wish lists this year.
If getting your kids to do their chores is on your Christmas wishlist, Dyson may be able to help.
This year, one of the hottest toys on the market is the Cadson Dyson Ball Toy Vacuum. Yes, it looks exactly like the real, adult version. And yes, it really can pick up dirt, dust, and debris as your child plays. (Yes, Virginia, there is a [hyper-clean] Santa Claus.) All parents have to do is empty out the back canister at the end of each play cleaning session.
“This cute Dyson vacuum is a direct replica of the life-size Dyson Ball Vacuum to help your little helper tidy in style,” Dyson explained of its new toy. “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 toy features working suction, realistic vacuum sounds, and the same turning action as the real deal. According to Dyson, the toy is suitable for ages 3 and up. However, it’s key to note that you (sadly) cannot pass your vacuum duties to your toddler. As Phil Cassidy, joint managing director at Cadson, shared with TODAY, the vacuum isn’t quite strong enough to pick up the biggest messes.
"We have made Dyson replica toys for 18 years and they are amazing sellers," Cassidy said. "All of them have working suction but are only designed to pick up small bits of paper or polystyrene balls. They all do this with no issues. If we were to improve this suction, it would not pass toy safety regulations or would be too expensive for a toy. Children love to copy their parents, we facilitate this in a very realistic way."
Even still, the toy has become wildly popular as a way to help children learn responsibility and to clean up their own teeny, tiny messes. In fact, it’s become so trendy that it sold out of places like Walmart several times over the last few weeks. Right now, you can still grab one on Amazon for $33 and Target for $25. Buy it ASAP so you can have it ready for Christmas day cleanup.
