I was a bit confused by the part where it says it has real suction and functions as a vacuum. My 5 year old daughter had her heart set on a an actual vacuum she can use to clean her room, so when I saw a miniature version of my Dyson vacuum I was all over it. If you're looking for a cute TOY vacuum for your kid, this is a great item! It has a quiet but realistic sound, the canister has spinning coloured confetti and it looks identical to the real full size Dyson. It doesn't roll on the ball (which is glued into place)...instead it rolls on side wheels that double as a stand when you snap them into place. As far as having suction....it's got a less than 1" x 1" opening in the middle of the otherwise flat/smooth vacuum head that sucks (weakly) and sends what it picks up into a little container that's about 1 cubic inch of capacity. It doesn't work on carpet, but does pick up dust bunnies off smooth floors. The container slides out of the back of the ball to be emptied, but it took me about 5 minutes to get the container out, as it's really awkward and tight. There are two separate buttons - one for the canister to spin the confetti and another for the 'suction' from the head.

Some people said it doesn't stand at all...but mine stood fine when the wheels were locked into stand position. The height would best suit a 2-3 year old.

I returned it as it obviously wouldn't have served my purpose...but for a 2 year old who just wants to pretend play, this would be a very cute toy, and from what I could tell, it was pretty well made. The handle is really sturdy and clips into place tightly...so tightly I could NOT get it back out to fit it back into it's box for returning. I doubt you'd have to worry about it falling out while your kid is playing. I just wouldn't pay more than $35 for it...which is the sale price I got it for.

On a positive note, Amazon was GREAT with my return and gave me a full refund with no hassle, and paid the full return shipping. I really do love buying from them!

My newphew goes around the house vacuuming everything he can. This toy was a huge hit and there was no sharing with anyone

Perfect height and weight for my 3 year old, just a little disappointed it's so flimsy. And it needs to be set up against something to stand it up, it doesn't lock into the upright position. Other than that, my little one is really enjoying vacuuming!

My son loves vacuuming and has wanted his own for awhile. We got him this Dyson for Christmas and are very disappointed.

Pros:
-it really does suck things up
-it looks nice

Cons:
-wont stand up right
-vacuum head won't lay flat when in motion (there is a piece you have to click into place to have this happen but it doesn't stay!)
-the wheels are extremely squeaky

We actually are thinking about returning it...
I wouldn't recommend this. It's making my almost 3 year old very frustrated.

My 24 month old son loves to be a helper and vacuum alongside me. He would constantly try to push my big Dyson all over the house no matter how heavy or clunky it was, he wanted to vacuum like Mom! He would cry and have a fit when I wouldn't let him push it around on his own so I had to find one that was all his own. When I saw this miniature version I HAD to get it for him! It is adorable! Looks just like the real thing. Yes it's small, but it's for your 2-3 year old so it's going to be small. My son is even tall for his age and it is perfect. He absolutely LOVES it! This vacuum keeps him entertained and busy while I use the real thing. In fact we vacuum the hard and carpet floors together now and he doesn't even want to use mine anymore. Its light enough for him to pick it up and move it room to room or over obstacles and the best part is there is no cord for him to get tangled up in like the real thing! He thinks the canister with the spinning confetti is really cool (which it kind of is) and loves to push the button on and off to make it spin. The separate switch for the sound (which gives it that real vacuum feel) is small and not very durable. After about day 3 of play I saw that it had come loose and got stuck inside the hole and my son wasn't able to turn it on or off anymore. I called customer service and they sent out a replacement right away.

I wish the ball wasn't locked into place as my son tries to make it spin and it doesn't.

It was really easy to assemble. No husband required. All you have to do is snap the handle into place (which will not be coming back out) and you are ready to roll. The battery compartment was easy to find and open as well. Mine did not "click" or "clunk" right away as the instructions said it was supposed to do to lock the wheels into place so sometimes it will stand upright on it's own, other times it needs to lean against a wall. The dust bin is hard to remove at first, but loosens up with use. Older kids might really enjoy that part more as their hands are stronger than a 2 year old's. It does pick up some particles on the floor so the suction part does work. We have a dog so our bin seems to just fill up with dog hair.

If your child loves to roll play vacuum, this is a really fun realistic toy! It's a pretty good mix of the real thing and pretend play and I think your child will love it!

Even with the cons above, the thing is just to darn adorable. Though my shrimp is still lacks the coordination to really play with it, it's nice to know that it actually does something other than just make noise.

We purchased this as a Christmas Gift for our 3 year old as he loves to "help" me vaccum with my Dyson Animal and this toy version looks pretty much just like the real deal. Needless to say when he unwrapped his presents tonight this was a huge hit with him and he has been "cleaning" the dinning room for a good hour now.lol Good cause other things I had ordered like the New Sprouts Fix It Tool Set had broken items within minutes of play. I'm hoping this vacuum holds up a while but for now it is a huge hit in our house!
