Dyson makes a kid-sized real vacuum, a mini of one of their actual big sweepers.

My kids are all excited about the little vacuum until it comes to actually being useful.  Then the drop it or throw a fit.

Roombas are just children with vacuum cleaners intelligently designed by a god with an engineering education.

Make sure it's not too noisy. Hearing damage is a thing and pretending appliances don't cause it is stupid. Goes triple for yardwork with leafblowers or lawn mowers (a chore I had as a kid and hated more than anything).

Same reason I bought my 4 year old a real push mower. He was pushing one of those toy clackety ones around, I figured that wasn't helping anyone. He got a little upset when he ran over those bunnies, but that was a learning opportunity.

I know that younger kids in my family have loved vacuum cleaners..Starting about 3 or 4, the vacuum becomes
this mystical thing to kids..I agree with the lady in the article..Get a cheap vac and let them go to town
with it..I agree with Adamatari about noise though...Maybe avoid the cheap Chinese knockoffs..The
Cheap Chinese knockoff I have of a Dyson is loud and runs really hot after a short use time..

Persian cats are more efficient. They're basically self-propelled dust mops.

Lifehacker sort of sucks, doesn't it? We're not going to see these ideas on Shark Tank.

Considering how much they cost to maintain over their 'working' lifetime? Pfft!

Hardly.
