This wiki has been updated 13 times since it was first published in December of 2016. All youngsters seem keen to imitate their parents from an early age, so encourage your offspring to do so with one of these toy vacuums. While this may look like simple play, it actually boosts the development of motor skills and hand-eye coordination. Some models even have educational features built in, including sounds and songs that help kids learn numbers, letters, and more. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best toy vacuum on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

March 05, 2019:

After much consideration, we have decided to remove the Little Henry, despite its overall adorableness. It simply doesn't function well for the long haul, ultimately disappointing its small users. For real-world operation, the Casdon Dyson Ball is a better choice, although it should be remembered that it's a toy, not a rough-and-tumble cleaning machine, and should be treated accordingly. We also removed the Kidzlane Working Toy because of availability issues, but we replaced it with the MMP Living Pretend Play Cleaning Cart, which is a more well-rounded choice in general. Instead of one big plastic unit, it has plenty of fun accessories made from wood, which means that it can be shared and that it's better on the environment. Finally, we left the Minnie Mouse Twinkle Bows, despite some complaints that it's not for boys. True, it comes only in bright pink and is marketed for females, but it is a nifty 2-in-1 that anyone is welcome to use (and will especially please fans of Disney).
