Pop & Count Vacuum Review (VTech)

What It Is

The Pop & Count Vacuum from VTech is a toy vacuum that features both fun and educational components to promote the mental and physical development of your little one. Turn on the vacuum to high or low volume and it will come to life. Turn the knob at the top to switch between music mode and cleaning mode. In cleaning mode, kids can pop open the see-through lid and remove the plastic blocks to vacuum up. The blocks features numbers (1–3), letters (A,B, and C) and music notes. The vacuum will make vacuuming sound effects as kids push it forward. The blocks will roll up into and pop around the inside of the vacuum. In music mode, additional music will play as you roll the vacuum forward, such as The Alphabet Song. Press the puppy button on the center of the vacuum to play additional songs. The 1-2-3 buttons on the bottom also reinforce beginning counting skills. Press each button and the vacuum will say the number outloud or play a different song in music mode.

Is It Fun?

Little kids love to imitate the roles of their moms and dads and that doesn't stop with cleaning. With this toy vacuum, toddlers can pretend to clean along with mom and dad as they push the vacuum across the floor. It combines the fun of basic learning skills like counting while also helping develop a child's motor skills in the form of an interactive roleplay toy.

Kids love toy vacuums. Along with lawnmowers, they seem to be the toys that let kids feel "big."

Who It’s For

The Pop & Count Vacuum is for ages 1–3.

What To Be Aware Of

The handle can be pushed forward into an upright position or on an angle. The handle however does not fall back all the way, which can offer more stabilization for beginner walkers.

Two AA batteries are included but they operate the in-store try-me features. We suggest replacing them before use.
