We were gifted this item in exchange for coverage. We have NO carpet in our home, and those God awful lino floors. This means that vacuuming is one of my most frequently undertaken chores. In the past, I have made a point of vacuuming whenever Daisy is at nursery because the noise used to really upset her. However, a couple of months ago Daisy was off nursery for a whole week and so I bit the bullet and tested the vacuum in front of her again. I was really pleased to see that she no longer cried and she actually wanted to join me with cleaning! Roll forward to this month and we were offered the chance to review the Casdon Dyson Ball Vacuum Cleaner – which is really similar in design to my own Dyson ball vacuum.
My daughter is 23 months and I am already working on teaching her all of the necessary life skills. We spend time cooking, baking, cleaning and looking after our own health together. I teach her about brushing her hair, cleaning up the mess she makes and how to brush her teeth correctly. For Daisy I want her to grow up with the skills she requires to look after herself, and her home.
When the Casdon Dyson Ball Vacuum Cleaner comes it is in two parts. There is the main vacuum body and then there is a handle that you just click together. It only took a few seconds and then I put the 4 X C batteries in the back of the vacuum, in the slot. This had a screw to remove, which always pleases me as I know that Daisy won’t be able to access the batteries easily.
Once the batteries are in place there are two buttons. One is an on/off switch on the back, which turns on the suction and the other is a red button, just underneath the handle, that allows balls to move around inside the collection bin of the vacuum. There is a vacuum sound that accompanies this and the balls pop around and are bright and colourful.
There is a little debris collector for any dirt that is vacuumed up, but so far ours has just had a few cat hairs in it. Still, Daisy found it really exciting when we removed it and emptied it into the bin!
I love that the Casdon Dyson Ball Vacuum Cleaner is a replica of our own Dyson ball. It lets Daisy feel grown up and it is lightweight enough for her to play with. Also, it stands up unaided, providing Daisy doesn’t just throw it down on the floor once she has finished with it.
There is a pretty big range of Little Helpers toys available on the Casdon website. Toys available include a washing machine, ironing board, Mr Kipling Afternoon tea set and many more. I love these toys as they allow children to get involved and learn more about the everyday jobs.
You can find the Casdon Dyson Ball Vacuum Cleaner on Amazon and the RRP is £17.99.
