Up until a couple of days ago, 2-year-old Matilda was scared of the vacuum. Not ideal for the new found fans of Mrs Hinch & Marie Kondo. So, when Casdon got in touch and asked us if we’d be interested in checking out their new Dyson cordless vacuum for kids, we were in two minds at to whether or not it would be well received in The Harrison Household.
Sadly, Matilda’s tears started pretty much as soon as we got out of the box. The dreaded vacuum she must have thought. However, because we’d not put the batteries in, and because the vacuum was much more “Matilda sized” the tears seemed to dry up pretty quickly.
In fact, after just a couple of minutes, Matilda realised this vacuum wasn’t going to hurt her. Instead, it was going to be her new favourite toy. She began to giggle as she frantically swept the floor with its brush like she’d seen us all do many times before.
In fact, over the course of the evening, the Dyson went everywhere with Matilda. Including, for snacks on the floor in the hallway and even to bed. We’re pleased to say Matilda no longer has a phobia of vacuum cleaners (thank goodness) and instead, follows us around the house with her own as we go.
As you can see from the image, the Dyson is light enough so Matilda could carry it around in one hand, evening lifting it above her head a couple of times (eekkk!!). While we never put batteries into the toy, you can and as a result, the colourful toy pellets will swirl around the cannister.
The end of the vacuum comes with detachable attachments just like the real Dyson cordless vacuum so your little ones can sweep the floor or even target specific points around the house.
Overall, we’re really pleased with the Casdon Dyson cordless vacuum cleaner. We think it’s a great representation of the real thing and has helped turned Matilda’s relationship with vacuum cleaners into a positive one.
We’d like to thank Casdon for sending us this kids cordless Dyson vacuum to review. As always all thoughts and opinions are our own.
