Dad Turns Vacuum Cleaner Into Toy to Tempt Kids to Do Chore

A Montreal dad has come up with a clever way to get his kids to help with the vacuuming: he’s turned the appliance into a toy.

Footage shared to YouTube by David Freiheit shows him wrapping a Lamb Chop puppet around the nozzle of a vacuum cleaner before he shows the transformed appliance to his children.

Freiheit appears to get a kick out of his creation himself, but soon, his video shows, his son Ethan can’t resist taking over.

Speaking to Storyful, Freiheit said, “I dare say it was a mild success, although the kids need to work on their vacuuming techniques!” Credit: David Freiheit via Storyful
