Help! Millions and Squillions of little balls from a body pillow all over the floor. How do I get them up?

DD and DS had a tug-of-war with my body pillow. End result, miliions and squillions of titsy tiny little balls all over my bedroom floor. I have tried a dustbuster, a hoover, a lint roll and nothing seems to make a difference. There are still loads of them and they are embedded in the carpet. How can I clear them up????
Also the pillow label says that they can cause respiratory problems...presumably this is just if you swallow them????
Please help me sort this out, I have been trying to clear them up for 3 hours now and I want to go to bed!

Have you not got an attachment thingy on your hoover?

Yes, but it still won't get all the buggers up, nor will my roomba...

Have you tried an old pair of tights over the suction bit?

Or wind some parcel tape round your hand and then pick up the balls. Poor you, you will be at it for days.

Rub a big plastic bag over something nylony and charge it with static. Put it over the millions of little balls and it should pick up the bulk. Agree with Fimbo, you will still be finding them at Christmas.

My dd managed to unzip a her chair the other week. Twice.
Hoover worked for me but took forever, as they were just everywhere. Good luck.
