Have you ever wondered how awesome it would be if your child had a toy that actually cleaned? Dyson is making every parent’s dream come true with not one, but three toy vacuums that actually work. Now, all you have to do is get the vacuum, put your feet up and watch your kids clean.

Dyson’s Little Helper vacuums are great for kids. They come in a kid-friendly size and look like an exact replica of their most popular vacuums, but smaller. All three models have the capacity to clean small debris and work like the real deal.

These vacuums are best suited for children ages 3 and up because they contain small parts, and parents should supervise all use.

We love that this is such a great way to involve the little ones in chores. And once they outgrow this model, they can keep on vacuuming by using the real thing. As an added bonus, children love this toy, so it’s a great addition to your Christmas list!

Keep in mind that these vacuums sold out last year, so you will want to grab one while they’re still available.

Here’s are three models you can get and what makes them different:


Rated 4 stars with more than 4000 reviewers.

This model is a replica of the Dyson ball vacuum and the most popular out of these three toys. This upright cleaner can suction small debris and has the ‘twist and turn' action that's just like the real one. It also comes with a removable debris drawer that your child can empty on their own.

The clear debris compartment also comes with small colored balls so children can see the cyclone action while they’re vacuuming.

This vacuum runs on 4 x C batteries.


Rated 3 stars on Amazon with over 500 reviews.

This is a replica of the Dyson DC14 upright vacuum. It comes with a detachable wand that has suction power designed to pick up small pieces of paper waste or small poly beads. The wand links to a removable dustbin at the back, which children can easily remove, empty and clean.

This vacuum runs on 4xC batteries.


Rated 4 stars on Amazon with over 200 reviews.

This vacuum is a replica of Dyson’s famous cord-free model. The suction picks up small bits and debris, which is then accumulated in a small compartment that can be emptied. The clear cylinder section has colorful balls that move when vacuuming so it sounds just like the grown-ups' Dyson.

This Dyson Little Helper can be used with the short nozzle or the long handled 'twist and turn,' just like the real one.

This vacuum runs on 3 x AA batteries.
