Kyle has been in Hollywood taping a game-show pilot where he had to compete against other contestants blindfolded and correctly identify vacuum models, the newspaper said Saturday.
He said he got his first working model at age 3 and keeps part of his collection in his room.
"When I was really little I would always follow my parents around when they were vacuuming," he said.
Randy and MaryLynn Krichbaum said their son played with a toy vacuum constantly as a toddler.
"At first we thought it was something he would grow out of because babies like noisy things," MaryLynn Krichbaum said. "But his interest just grew stronger and stronger ... where he gets it from, I don't know."
Kyle, whose hobby also has landed him a guest appearance on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," has aspirations of owning a vacuum shop.
