We all wish our kids would help a little more around the house. But how do we motivate them to take responsibility and get involved?
Allowance usually works with older kids who understand the concept of cash, but what about the younger kiddos?
We can certainly begin early and start encouraging our toddlers and preschoolers to help mom, dad, grandma or grandpa around the house.

Together, we’re a whiz at this housework caper ✌? Until Christmas Eve, with every purchase of a @dyson V10 cord-free vacuum (should be at the top of every Christmas list, it’s a beauty), shoppers will be gifted a bonus cord-free toy version for the kids – just perfect for your mini helpers! ❁ #workingwithdyson #dysonv10 #dysonvacuum #toydyson #minime #minimumma #cordfree #housework #melbournemums #mummybloggerau #mumlife #motherhoodunplugged #dysoncordless
Dyson is well known for its stellar performing — albeit expensive — vacuum cleaners. Ranked “Best of the Best” as of November 2018 by NY Daily News, it seems one of Dyson’s ball models can’t be beat.
That precision has been reimagined as a toy. Little helpers can start early with the Dyson Ball Vacuum created by Casdon.
Not only does this kid-friendly gadget look super cool, it comes complete with sounds and real suction. That’s right, for the low price of around $50 for the ball model (Amazon’s current price), your child could be helping while he or she is playing.
Overall, the parent reviews for this toy seem to be quite positive. The biggest downfall appears to be that the suction function isn’t very powerful.
According to TODAY, that’s because a more powerful toy vacuum would violate safety regulations and all-around make the vacuum more expensive.
“We have made Dyson replica toys for 18 years and they are amazing sellers,” Phil Cassidy, the joint managing director at Cadson, told TODAY. “…Children love to copy their parents, we facilitate this in a very realistic way.”
Another issue has to do with battery life, Good Housekeeping reported. With a need for 4 C batteries. the vacuum is said to use up those batteries quickly, costing parents both time and money.
In the end, I’d say the value of this product comes more from what it teaches than how much dirt it suctions up.
What do you think? Would you purchase a toy like this one for your child? Do you feel the features on a toy are more important than what it teaches?
