Mummy let me hoover!
My mum brought this hoover for christmas when daughter was nearly 2 from Argos think it was around £20 at the time.
I thourght mini dyson how cute and it really sucks so perfect.
Its nice and brightly coloured and comes with few attachments.
It takes 3 med batteries not the super chunky ones the one below that size.
Once switched on it has 3modes off, noise and balls float inside or third actual suction.
Must admit found suction mode bit dissapointing was hoping for unpaid smaller helper in house but it failed pick up much not disimilar to my full size dyson unfortunatly.
My daughter loves helping and I thourght having her own hoover that I could use mine in peace without her jumping on my back asking for rides or trying to snatch the real hose off me!
It seems she could not be fooled she knew it was a toy or perhaps just not keen.
The thing eats up batteries too which then presented another major problem.
The batteries are screwed in but no matter how hard we tried we could not unscrew to get batteries out and put new batteries in ended up busting it open and having to tape new batteries in not good.
But sadly now its now bust, I would not say my daughters too rough but the purple peice at the front has snapped off.
I just wish it had been better quality and lasted longer.
My daughter likes to copy so im wondering if it,s the fact she had upright I had a cylinder made a difference in her disinterest in this
I need to get her new toy hoover and I know dyson do toy cylinder aswell however but im tempted to try henry no now after upright poor performace.
I guess what we have to remember with any toy versions of real products is
1)They just a toy!Manage your expectations no slave labour here!
2)The companies licence toy companies to make these using the brand names so not actually made by manufacturer which in this case would be dyson!
I really wanted to like this but I felt let down.
Summary: It seemed so promising but poor quality and build really let it down
