We got our Schylling Little Helper Broom Set so long ago that I don’t even remember who gave it to us. But it has been well-loved ever since.

The set includes a broom in red and blue with yellow bristles, a hand brush with a purple handle and yellow bristles, and a bright green dustpan. The hand brush fits perfectly inside the dustpan for storage, and the two can be hung separately or together on a hook in say, an IKEA play kitchen. The broom can also be hung thanks to a hole in the end of the handle. You can also get a set with pink broom and dust pan.

We keep our dustpan and hand brush hanging in my kids’ IKEA play kitchen.

Our broom has seen better days after getting stepped on multiple times by both adults and kids. The handle has a definite tilt to it as a result, and it isn’t quite as sturdy for sweeping as it started out. I’ve used the broom to sweep myself and it works quite well even with a shorter handle than I might like in an adult broom. I find it incredibly useful as a long-handled tool within easy reach that I can use to rescue toys under the couch or or other hard to reach places.

I use both the hand brush and dustpan extensively for actual messes.

I still use the hand brush and dustpan on a weekly if not daily basis, and I don’t mean for playing. It works so wonderfully to clean up dry messes that I often use it to clean birdseed, mouse food, sand, or dirt that mysterious appears on my floors moments after my kids come through the house. I don’t know how I would live without it, and my kids like it, too.
