Advantages: nice and bright appeals to kids with the added bonus of looking just like mums....
Disadvantages: loose handle and no suction like stated.
As soon as my eldest son got interested in the home dyson, I found this in the index catalogue and thought it would be worth its weight in gold! I was very pleased with my own hoover of the same design and figured the kids version must be at least of similar quality...
It is an upright hoover in bright colours of purple red and yellow which really appeals to kids and adults alike, the kids are really pleased because "its just like mums" and the idea of it is on one option to spin the rotating beads in the clear cylinder at the front and the second option to actually "suck up"...
My son was 2 when we bought it for him and although its still going strong, I noticed from as soon as I had bought it that the handle would not stay put in its slot, whereas the adult dyson you need to press the plastic lever in to release the hose, this needed virtually no pressure and if the handle was accidentaly dropped it would flip off and constantly needs refitting which is quite difficult for little fingers to do. It also said in the rightup on it in the catalogue that it "really hoovers up" yet I have yet to see it do that, theres even a little plastic box on the back at the bottom ready to "collect" the rubbish it collects, yet that box has never seen a smidgen of fluff! It is quite frustrating for my son, as he carefully scatters tiny bits of paper then proceeds to hoover them up, when nothing happens he isnt impressed but given its due it is an attractive looking hoover and the revolving beads in the see-through cylinder are quite exciting for little ones as it puts a bit of deception into the idea of it sucking up...
It could be said that we had a "dud" hoover yet I have seen my friends having the same problems with this hoover so perhaps expecting the certain quality the "adult" dyson hoover has to be thrown into a kids version was a bit much...
