My son is 3. he is a virgo like me and loves to help clean. last time i vacuumed he said," Why dont i have a vacuum?" i told him i didnt kow and asked if he wanted one for xmas... he said yes so here is my delema... he seems too old for a toy vacuum, he is really tall i dont think they would fit his build, he jsut seems too big for that. so i was think ing i should get him a little, not too powerful dustbuster... so his help would actually be productive. i would mount it in the utility closet up high and only use it with supervision... what do you think? what would you do??

My son has loved to clean just like his mom. I thought I wanted to encourage this love for clean and order. And hopefully his future SO will thank me for it. But I am a fan of organic toys and there are natural and safe (plus inexpensive) cleaning toys (that really work) for toddlers and older children. My son has a broom he loves to "seep" the floor with and also dust and small hand held duster. I give him organic bamboo cloths to play to wipe up whatever he wants to. I love the idea that through play he is able to learn life long skills.
