Hoover are looking for 5 Mumsnetters to put the new Globe Hoover to the test.

This is what Hoover says about the product: "Globe is Hoover's new manoeuvrable range of vacuum cleaners containing patented twist and steer technology allowing you to easily glide around furniture. The compact and lightweight design combines with a self aligning locking mechanism and directional control meaning that Globe is not only easy to manoeuvre but it also effortlessly negotiates obstacles and corners."

In order to really test what the Globe can do, Hoover will be setting challenges for testers to undertake during the trial and then asking them to add their feedback to a thread on MN and, if possible, send in pictures and/or video footage. The challenges include vacuuming around obstacles in the home, hard to reach places and stairs, cleaning up after pets etc. Please note that if you supply any video or photo footage, it may appear on MN, YouTube and/or Facebook.

This product test is open to all UK Mumsnetters with at least one child. If you wish to take part in this trial please sign up here.

Everyone who takes part in the product test and leaves their feedback gets to keep the Globe Hoover after testing (RRP £229). There will also be an additional £30 Amazon voucher up for grabs for the tester who sends in the best video or photo of them doing the challenges.

Thanks and good luck!

Have signed up, I currently have a henry which is a pain in the backside to use on stairs and is not great to get around corners either. I previously had a philips universe which was much better than henry!

Signed up. Please please me me me! Cat fluff and obstacles do my head in, in my house.

EauRouge Wed 25-Jul-12 13:15:43

I've signed up too, 2 cats and 2 children are too much for our current vacuum cleaner.

Babylon1 Wed 25-Jul-12 13:16:49

LadySybildeChocolate Wed 25-Jul-12 13:37:04

Done. A new dyson is on my list of things I need, so if the hoover's better I'll be so impressed. smile

raininginbaltimore Wed 25-Jul-12 13:57:35


We have a miele and a dyson and I hate both. We have cats that leave fluff everywhere.

ggirl Wed 25-Jul-12 15:13:55

Well if Pinot gets it then I's the law.

Pinot Wed 25-Jul-12 15:24:37

True dat, twinnygg

<curtseys to Columbo> grin

TantrumsAndBalloons Wed 25-Jul-12 15:42:02

I have the stupid dyson rollerball thing thanks to DH.

I may finally be able to get rid of it. The dyson not the DH. Although both tempting ATM.

LadySybildeChocolate Wed 25-Jul-12 15:43:50

My dyson is about 10 years old and the motor is on the way out. It was a good little thing sad

SweetestThing Wed 25-Jul-12 15:54:26

Signed up.

Please, please let it be me! grin

3teenhell Wed 25-Jul-12 16:25:03

signed up, please let it be me. I have 4 dc and 2 cats and hoover twice a day!! I know i'm anal, but can't help it

RabbitsMakeBrownEggs Wed 25-Jul-12 16:26:48

I have signed up. My ex took all his stuff when we split up, including the hoover, so it would be a very welcome addition to the household, which is full of pets and animals... ahem, I mean children.

poppy1973 Wed 25-Jul-12 16:27:21

I have added my name too.

FartBlossom Wed 25-Jul-12 16:55:45

Done with 3 kids and 3 pets ok so the rat doesn't actually make too much mess and my hair always finding it's way everywhere Henry isn't doing a great job any more he says we've worked him too hard and he wants to retire this would be a welcome product trial for us. Its not like we will be able to afford a new one any time soon

BiscuitNibbler Wed 25-Jul-12 17:23:46

I've applied - my house is crying out for this. My DD's toy vacuum has more suction than my old Dyson!

Thecunningstunt Wed 25-Jul-12 17:49:56

I would so love to be picked for this! I hoover every day....and this looks very good!

ornellaia Wed 25-Jul-12 18:15:35

I've signed up for this, I think I might have killed my sebo today cleaning up the rubble dust left behind by the window fitters.

JustPondering Wed 25-Jul-12 18:25:36

I would love to try this hoover out grin ME!

Fiveisenough Wed 25-Jul-12 18:41:41

Hope I get picked. I have five kids 3 storeys and hoover everyday. Fair test I would say. Fingers crossed!!

Stitchthis Wed 25-Jul-12 18:46:21

Signed up

TodaysAGoodDay Wed 25-Jul-12 18:59:49

Signed up. This would be a great test for us, we've just moved into a building site newly knocked-about house, and the floors (and everything else too) are filthy. I'd love to have a shot at this one.
