My New Toy




When our vacuum stopped working I went into a panic, having 2 kids who drop crumbs everywhere and no hoover is enough to make anyone cry!  We borrowed my mum and dad's cylinder vacuum and they got another one but I wanted one of our own and with limited funds I had to wait.  My prayers were answered in a different way.

Last year I reviewed a LG tumble dryer for ao.com and I decided to apply again and see if they would kindly send me a new vacuum.  I know it sounds cheeky but they loved the review I done for them last year so I thought why not?  They said yes and they sent me a Vax Air3.  I was actually in tears I was that happy!



I can honestly say it is the best vacuum I have ever had!  Yes I am getting that excited over a vacuum!  I will tell you why!

  • HEPA Media filter that traps all dirt, dust and pollens inside.  Great news for allergy sufferers like myself.
  • Fur n Fluff tool for pet hair.  I don't have a pet but this little tool comes in handy for other things too, like fluff off dolls hair!
  • The handle comes off and can be attached to the hose meaning I can manage the hard to reach places.
  • The wire stretches from my living room to the hall and bedrooms, no more stopping and starting.
  • You can switch the brushes on giving the carpet a deeper clean.
  • The vacuum swivels making it easy to move around.
  • 6 year guarantee!! Result.
Me and my husband are like kids at Christmas when we need to get the vacuum out!  It really does make hoovering easier and quicker with fantastic results.  My carpets look brand new again.

You can purchase the Vax Air3 here.  It is on sale just now at £119 which is a total bargain! (was £259)

  1. Great to get a review product just when you need it. I did that once and it has been one of my most successful posts, so the company did well out of it too.

  7. We reviewed this last year and loved it ... the hose was fiddly and didn't quite reach on the stairs but the suction was fab!

  10. I like Vax products. I wish we'd chosen a vax the last time we bought a new hoover because we've never ever any problems with Vax. The one we bought is the loudest hoover ever and is rubbish.
    We're going to have to buy a new one soon but I'm putting it off as long as I can!
