At age 4, I had a toy kitchenette where I loved "chopping" Velcroed vegetables and "washing" dishes served to my dinner-guest dolls. Although I loved pretending to be a grown-up, my chopped plastic vegetables and miniature plates were pretty useless to my mom who did all of the real housework. (Thanks, Mom!) Using a real kitchen knife to help with meal prep wouldn't be age appropriate for a 4-year-old, but "vacuuming" doesn't have to be a make-believe activity for kids as young as three years old thanks to Casdon's miniature replica of Dyson's Ball model vacuum.

The pint-sized vacuum features realistic sounds and actual suction that allows kids to pick up small pieces of paper and crumbs (hello, snacktime cleanup). Although nowhere near as powerful as a real-deal Dyson, this toy will allow kids to role-play and learn motor and problem-solving skills. The toy weighs three pounds, requires four C batteries and features a removable dustbin for emptying debris. With more than 3,700 reviews and a 3.8-star rating, it's safe to say parents think it's worth the money, too.

One Amazon reviewer says the toy even helped her son with autism overcome his fear of vacuums. Reviewer Kate Mahoney says, "I decided to get this in hopes of making the vacuum less scary and involving him. He LOVES it and now vacuums along with us instead of running and crying! That to me is a huge win. I find him vacuuming by himself all the time. I love that it's teaching him an important life skill and that he's enjoying cleaning! What more could you want as a parent!?"

If you're in need of an adult vacuum to tackle your spring cleaning, our editors are obsessed with Dyson's cordless vacuums. While it'll definitely cost you more than a toy, you'll have it for years to come — even long enough for your little one to graduate from play vacuuming to real-life vacuuming once they're old enough. Plus, the Dyson V7 is $100 off right now!

Mallory Ziglar, HGTV's social media manager, recently upgraded to Dyson's D7 cordless. "Since it doesn’t need to be plugged into an outlet and it weighs next-to-nothing, I can zap cobwebs in the high corners of the ceiling and keep our dog’s hair tumbleweeds at bay," she says. "And I enjoy using it."
