My
initial impression of this toy vacuum was that it looked fab and was the same
as mine. The packaging was eye catching and easy to get in to the toy. It’s a
perfect size for toddlers. My little girl loved it but would have preferred
more suction to suck things up! I have no concerns at all about my child
playing with this toy. It keeps her attention, and stimulates her imagination;
she can copy mummy now! It’s an excellent toy for role play. It’s so simple for
her to play with without losing interest too. The quality is excellent and it’s
very well built. It’s expensive for what it is though. There are cheaper
hoovers similar out there. I would recommend it to family and friends though.
It’s a great role play toy however the price doesn’t justify its playing value.

This
product looks great – just like the real thing. The vacuum came in a nice box
with pictures of it on the sides. It is a good size for my daughter, it is at
the right height for her to use.  It
looks just like the real thing and she has a working vacuum cleaner all of her
own. I wasn’t sure what my daughter would think of this product as she is
scared of our vacuum cleaner, however she was interested in it and spent quite
a lot of time vacuuming and making us pretend to be scared of the vacuum.  Since then it occasionally gets brought out
and used a little but isn’t used with much frequency.  I had hoped she might use it when I use the
real thing but she’s not interested. I didn’t have any initial concerns but
when we started to use it, I found that actually, my daughter couldn’t use the
item properly on her own. To move the vacuum from a free standing, standing up
position to getting the sucking part to have contact with the floor you have to
push the little wheels at the back and up until they click.  My daughter cannot manage to do this and both
my husband and I struggled to work it too – I have to do it with my fingers,
you can’t just push down with the vacuum cleaner.  It is really disappointing and negatively
affects the use and enjoyment my daughter gets from the product.  Also there is an on button to make the beads
go round in the cylinder but to make the vacuum suck things up you have to make
sure your hand is in the right place on the handle to make contact with both
metal conductor bumps and again this isn’t so easy for little hands and it’s a
bit hit and miss as to whether my daughter manages this.  An on/off button for the sucking or even just
one on/off button for both the beads and sucking would be better. As it’s a
vacuum cleaner it doesn’t really invite open ended play, it has to be used in a
particular way but my daughter has managed to deal with some of her vacuum
based fears through using this item and she does like to check the little dirt
collection box to see if she has picked up anything, although she can’t manage
to remove and replace this box herself. It gets brought out from time to time. To a certain extent; it has
helped with her role playing as her role plays being the parent and comforting/reassuring
the child (me) who is scared of the vacuum cleaner and I think it’s nice for
her to feel capable and hoover and see she has picked up hairs, etc.  She has to concentrate to get her hand in the
right position to make the sucker bit work and has to steer the vacuum cleaner
around and aim it at dirt so probably helps with motor skills. I think my
daughter loses interest quite quickly with this as there is really only one way
to use it and the pushing the wheels back to make contact with the floor and
having to keep your hand in the right position to make the sucker work make it
more difficult for her to use and make her less interested.  As does the fact that she cannot manage to
take the dirt collection box out and put it back in herself either. It is good
quality and really nice but as I said before there are 2 problems with the
design/use which are real drawbacks. I wouldn’t recommend this purely because
of the drawbacks I found with my daughter playing with it. It’s a lovely
looking replica of a Dyson – looks great. However the wheels have to be pushed back before the sucker makes
contact with the floor and even I find this difficult so my daughter can’t
manage it and you have to keep your hand in a particular position on the handle
to make the sucker work and again this is difficult for a small person to
understand and manage to do. Amina Tutton – Isabel 2 Years

This
looked good just like mine and Milly was excited to use and pretend to be me
around the home.  Packaging good and nice
colourful toy.  This was the perfect size
for Milly and she loved to vacuum her room and help me too.  The suction is sufficient for toddlers and
Milly just loved feeling grown up and having her own Dyson to help us all.  Ideal toy and age suitability is spot on. A
good quality toy and helped Milly to realise how important it is to keep the
rooms tidy.  Great for role play too and
she loved showing her friends her own little Dyson.  Kept her attention for sure and I think this
is a great gift idea as something different. The quality is really good and will last, and Milly has been using it
every day so had a good test run for sure. I think the price is a bit high, but taking into account the fun Milly
has had with this I would purchase other products from this company.  An ideal gift and well made.  I have already recommended.  Helena Blithe – Milly 3 years

This looked
a great toy and just ideal for  Suzanna.  This arrived well packaged and instructions
very easy to follow.  Suzanna was very
excited as wanted to vacuum living room just like mummy!  This was ideal size for Suzanna and she
really enjoyed using this toy.  The fact
that this had suction was superb, not just a look a like toy but one that
worked similar to our own vacuum cleaner. Of course the suction was minimal but Suzanne felt very grown up and
loved showing all her friends her Dyson Ball Vacuum cleaner.  Suzanne would use this when playing with her
dolls and would act out getting them to help her clean.  A superb toy and something so different, as I
had never seen anything like this before. Now every weekend Suzanne is by my side with her own little Dyson.  Age group is ideal, easy to handle and good entertainment
value too.  Superb toy for  Role Play. A little bit pricey for what it is but it has been a hit with
Suzanne.  I would purchase this item and
have already recommended to friends as this would make a fun Christmas
gift.  Would have received full marks,
but just felt the price could be reduced slightly and then perfect.  Carolina

It’s a great role play toy.
