Anyone can recall that doing chores as a child was no fun... at all.
But it has to be admitted that chores overall build well-rounded and responsible adults and the kids who never had to do chores growing up can sometimes end up being pretty spoilt and narrow-minded.
Vacuum giant Dyson has come up with an amazing idea that encourages kids to get hands-on with their chores by releasing a $24 vacuum cleaner suitable for children.

Chores are never really that fun...But just like a lot of things in the real world, they have to be done!
Chores are actually really important...Research from a well-known seventy-five-year Harvard study examined the childhood psychosocial variables and biological processes that predicted health and well-being later in life, and it was concluded that kids who had chores fared better later in life.
Teamwork is everything.

Doing chores also encourages motivation.

Because let's face it...Being an adult doesn't involve having our parents do everything for us!
Parents have already come up with imaginative ways of getting their kids to enjoy chores...

But many parents resort to bribery.A lot of kids earn their pocket money from doing their daily chores which, I must say, does prepare them well for their professional lives ahead.
But this doesn't make doing chores fun...Luckily, vacuum manufacturers, Dyson have created the ideal children's toy to put the fun back into doing chores.
Dyson has released the "Dyson Toy Cordless Vacuum."
