Dyson Toy Vacuum Cleaner
Advantages: different colours, exact replica
Disadvantages: no suction!
My daughter is 2 and a half and is VERY girly! She is a mini-mummy and just loves to copy me. I saw a pink Dyson toy in the Argos catalogue and she just had to have it!
The toy Dyson comes in traditional Dyson colours, a baby pink (which is the one we have) or purple like the picture. The pink colour is only available at Argos, but the other colours are in most toy stores like Toys R Us, and the typical retail price is about £20.
The Dyson toy looks exactly like the real Dyson! It even has the Dyson logo in white on the front. It comes with a long hose, a brush-type attachment (I use the real version of this on my stairs) and a nozzle. They attach to the Dyson toy just like the real ones do on the real Dyson and they also attach to the end of the hose. The hose is attached to the handle and is removable just like the real thing, handy for stairs and skirting boards!
In the plastic compartment of the toy are several tiny multicoloured balls (green, yellow, blue and red) which simulate the picked up lint/rubbish. The hoover does not actually have any suction so the child can't actually hoover anything up, but when the hoover is on the little balls do spin around inside.
The Dyson toy does sound like a real hoover abeit much quieter. There is a switch on the side which you can slide to one of three positions - off, quiet mode or loud. The quiet mode is reasonable, but the loud mode is quite a bit louder - though actually not unbearably so and definitely nowhere near as loud as the real thing. I find that the switch is quite stiff, particularly for little hands, but my daughter can manage it just about.
The Dyson takes 3 C batteries which have lasted a very long time, my daughter has had this since November and uses it several times a week and the batteries are still going strong! It is a lovely cute little replica. My daughter loves to line it up next to mine and say "my hoover, mummy's hoover" then hoover alongside me!
My one gripe is that the hoover has no suction! My daughter used to have a little pink hoover that had a little bit of suction, she loved watching things get sucked up! All the same, it is perfect for copying mummy and "helping" hoover and at £20, it is a fairly reasonable price for a branded toy!
Summary: a lovely little toy!
