They are very good. Especially the little arm that comes out when you get to a corner. Look at this page
to see what one is.

I love mine to bits.

I love his little tune when he wants to go back to bed.

I love him tickling my feet.

I love watching him work while I'm MNing.

ooooooh, I want one of those!!!!

How utterly fab!

Wonder what my oh will say when I request one hmm "we have a perfectly good hoover already" . . . I can just see it now

I want one too!

But there is either a step up or a step down to every ruddy room in this house. It wouldn't cope would it?

The only problem in our house is the amount of cobwebs there are now. I haven't had the normal vacuum cleaner out for months and Roomy hasn't yet learnt how to climb walls... grin

One tip - don't leave anything dangling on the floor - blind cords, PE bag strings etc. they'll get chewed up and take a while to untangle

what is a roomba? will it follow my dog and dds arpund cleanin up after them?

notsoteenagemum Sat 11-Oct-08 22:58:59

Where does all my hair the dust go?

NotAnOtter Sat 11-Oct-08 22:59:05

Should not the roomba tell you when it is charged? I think my first generation one has a light from red to green.

Enjoy, they are fantastic

I don't get it.

Honestly, how hard is it to run the vac around ?
