Good day my fellow vacuum enthusiasts.
When I was a kid, I was absolutely obsessed with vacuum cleaners for some unknown reason. I've mostly grown out of it but still find them quite intriguing. One particular vacuum I always wanted was a small, miniature version of the Hoover De Luxe 652. I had seen it when I was only 6 years old at the Hoover Historical Center in Ohio, and just recently I saw it again on a return journey to the museum. I did some searching on what exactly it was, but was unable to find any for sale online.
Therefore, I figured I would ask here. Does anyone have one of these for sale? How much should I expect to pay for one?
I don't mind which color it is, so long as it's the correct model as shown in the pictures.
Thanks for reading.

I would say try ebay UK as these are on there at times. They were made by Well & Co with permission from The Hoover Co. There was one on there in a white and green colour like the pic shown. The Junior models come up more than the Senior models do but still do surface. I have seen a number of these toy replicas over the last year or two so they do come up. I have seen the green, pink and dark blue versions on there. Type in well & co toy hoover. There is one in pink on completed listings. Save the search in your ebay and you will find one soon.

Thank you for the reply Luxz. I did save the search on US ebay, but didn't think to check UK ebay. There are a handful of other toy hoovers made by Wells and Co. on there so that is a promising sign. I'll definitely keep an eye on it!
