When AO.com got in touch to see if I’d like to take part in a blogger Christmas challenge, I didn’t hesitate to say yes. Not only would I receive a Secret Santa type gift, but I got to choose a blogging friend to exchange a gift with. I asked the lovely Mel from Le Coin de Mel if she would like to join in, and she was as enthusiastic as I was. We were given a list of ten items to choose from, and had to pick three for each other, AO then picked one of the three to send to us.
I’m not sure what Mel’s three choices for me were, but I was sent a gift that I desperately needed. Our not even two year old vacuum cleaner died on us a few months ago after being involved in a collision with the wall (don’t ask). We have been using a hand me down Dyson ever since, which is well over five years old and not in the best shape. Needless to say this was an exceptionally well timed present. Thank you Mel, and thank you AO!
Dyson Light Ball Multi Floor and V6 Cord Free Bagless Vacuum Cleaner Bundle
This is the cake and eat it version of a vacuum cleaner. You get the compact and portable cord free, which gives you twenty minutes cleaning time, as well as a more traditional upright vacuum, which is also lightweight.
Considering it’s completely cord free, the V6 is very powerful, and has great suction. It’s perfect for giving the house a quick going over, or thoroughly cleaning the stairs, etc. It’s quite interesting seeing how fast twenty minutes goes though, and I’m often convinced that I’ve only been at it for five minutes when in actual fact it’s fifteen.
The upright Light Ball is a few generations up from what we currently have and is a dream to use. Easy to manoeuvre and of course, as with all Dyson’s, wonderful suction. You can adjust the settings depending on whether you are vacuuming a hard floor or carpeted one.
A too short power cable has been a bugbear of mine in the past, but this one is 9.4m, which is more than enough for the entire downstairs of my house. It weighs in at an impressive 6.9kg, which makes it exceptionally lightweight. So much so that 5yo Clara can handle it perfectly and she does a fab job with it, earning her pocket money.
The two cleaners together make a great team, and this bundle is excellent value. I’m genuinely struggling to find a bad word to say about either of them.
