Batteries Required (Sold Separately): 4 C Batteries
Does not hold up well I got this for my son when he was about 15 months old. The vacuum was a real hit - it looks just like the real Miele we use. The knob to increase the suction is really cute and gets louder as you turn it. The hose can clip on the end or the vacuum can stand up and the hose can clip to the side just like the real one too. The attachments are very cute and my son loved playing with those although he was not able to put them on himself - they have to snap into place - again, like the real one. The vacuum started to "break" when the hose snaped off from the vacuum. My husband cut it back and put it back on. Then it happened again. The hose is almost too dry or something. From all the use, the hose didn't move well with the use it got. Eventually the hose was becoming too small, we went to Home Depot and bought a clear plastic hose that fit perfectly. Then the sweeper clips broke off.So I had to duck tape the sweeper to the hose so my son could use the sweeper, otherwise he just put the attachment parts on. So, I'm not impressed. It's too fragile. The sweeper didn't last 4 months. ...more info
cute, but fragile My little guy, 18 months old, loved our canister vacuum so I thought this would be perfect. He loves his little vacuum, but the clips that hold the pole and attachments came out the third time we used it. The pieces stay on (for now) without the clip, which is small enough to be a choking hazard. ...more info
Kinda flimsy We bought this for our 20-month old so she might leave the real vacuum alone. It worked for that. But the construction is very cheap. The plastic is brittle. It claims to vacuum up small items but the ONLY thing we could get it to pick up was the styrofoam beads that shipped with it. The hose and nozzle assemly is no where near sealed so there is no suction. I realize it is a toy but it certainly does not live up to its product description.
All of that being said, my daughter loves to use it to vacuum with mom....more info

My 14 month old is obsessed with it Ever since my son was 10 months old he just HAD to check out the vacuum whenever it was out. So we decided to get him a toy vacuum for his birthday. Since we use a canister vacuum I wanted to get him a canister vacuum as well, and this was pretty much the only one out there.
He just LOVES it, and since he is under 3, (the recommended age), I took the long gray pole out of the vacuum so its just his size. (the head fits fine straight onto the hose.) He knows how to turn it on & off, but mostly likes dragging it around. He also likes taking the two attachments out. And I love how this vacuum has no real suction because then it would not be safe for my little one.
The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because he loves this toy so much that he wants to drag it EVERYWHERE. And that can be a pain- (to the car, in the highchair, on the changing table, etc.) so I've had to hide it sometimes. :) But I am very happy with this vacuum....more info
Best Toy Ever Our 2 1/2 year old and 4 year old boys have been playing with this vacuum for over a year now-it gets played with every single day. It is the ONLY way we can vacuum because it is JUST like Mom's! Forget the Styrofoam beads-it is more about the noise it makes (not too loud) the controls and attachments. I am glad it does not actually "work" or "suck" as it is completely safe for kids this way. Fabulous and I would recommend it highly to everyone....more info
