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!

Sorry MrsJohnDeere - I did email you again to explain what had occurred and to apologise profusely but maybe it didn't get through? I'll PM you my email (too embarrassed about how grovelly it is to share here!)

OMG, our Dyson flex has split so I was dicing with death vacuuming yesterday. How very exciting, I think I might need to take it on holiday with me too. Hoping it arrives soon as the Dyson has gone to the tip!

Thank you MNTowers I've not won anything for years and years.

ScorpionQueen Thu 02-Aug-12 18:39:35

Maybe, as we are so upset, we could get a discount after the product tests in case we want to buy one ourselves...

mynameis Thu 02-Aug-12 18:32:58

Haven't had email yet. Looking forward to kids doing the hoovering trying it out grin
