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!

SirBoobAlot Wed 25-Jul-12 21:53:17

I'm signed up. Find a lot of vacuum cleaners just too heavy for me to manouver with my stupid body. Would be delighted to find one that wasn't!.

muddledsheep Wed 25-Jul-12 22:00:07

Done, here's hoping :-)

Davinaaddict Wed 25-Jul-12 22:57:26

Me please! My Dyson is on its last legs, and with 2 small children, a vacuum is essential to the house! grin

Ladygaggia Wed 25-Jul-12 23:19:36

The challenges sound like my typical cleaning - around obstacles grin

Popoozle Wed 25-Jul-12 23:40:05

CJCregg Thu 26-Jul-12 01:09:50

Done. I also lost a good hoover to my ex and ended up with a crappy hand-me-down dyson which I am putting up with as no money for anything better. Would love to try out a Globe smile

Dillydollydaydream Thu 26-Jul-12 13:41:49

I've signed up. I've got an ancient Dyson that I can't justify replacing at the moment. We have guinea pigs and cats so need something super sucky!

InMySpareTime Thu 26-Jul-12 16:01:00

Dilly shock please please don't "super sucky" the guinea pigs!grin

ouryve Thu 26-Jul-12 16:11:10

We have a navy carpet (not our choice) and my kids are Hansel and Gretel. Between them and DH and his DIY, our Dyson is on its last legs (and out of warranty, now). I need this!

And I'll be taking the pictures, tyvm!

ouryve Thu 26-Jul-12 16:13:36

Another one to add to the MN profile. The scarf, the haircut, a distates for Greggs sausage rolls and fruitshoots and now, the elderly dys(functi)on

CakeistheAnswer Thu 26-Jul-12 17:33:33


Isn't anyone else intrigued by the fact that the Globe has directionanal control?

Shouldn't this thread be saved for Friday?

Sounds fun - definitely signed up! grin

Gauchita Thu 26-Jul-12 18:32:17

Done! I'm v disappointed in our Dyson sad Fingers crossed!

browny Thu 26-Jul-12 19:18:05

All done...would love to just hoover and for the carpet to look half decent, instead of being covered in dog/cat/daughters' hair!
