It's Love: How A Dyson Vacuum Stole My HeartIt’s okay to love a vacuum, right? I mean, not just any vacuum, obviously. I’m talking about a vacuum that makes my house look like it doesn’t have two little boys and a temperamental tuxedo cat running around in it day after day. The Dyson Ball Animal 2 has sucked things out of my carpet I didn’t know were hiding in there and in doing so it has stolen my heart. If your home is filled with babies and furbabies, this vacuum is going to steal your heart too! 

The Dyson Ball Animal 2 has something no other vacuum has: the strongest suction. This is powerful suction that picks up the stuff you can’t see sitting in your floor, in those crevices, and in those rugs. No matter the type of flooring you have, the Dyson Ball Animal 2 can handle it. It glides seamlessly from tile or hardwood floors onto area rugs or carpet without needing to change out the vacuum head or swap to a tool. That kind of versatility saves me time and makes the chore of vacuuming that much easier. There’s no sacrifice on the suction when moving from carpet to hardwood floors either. The Dyson cleaner head has active base plates that adjust automatically as the surface of the floor changes sealing in that superior suction the whole time.

Of course when you need a little something extra to clean hard to reach or trouble spots in your home, the tools that come with the Dyson Ball Animal 2 are perfect! There are SIX tools that come with this vacuum so you can get right into the spots you need to clean with exactly the type of tool you need to tackle the job. With two little boys running around leaving a trail of crumbs everywhere they go and a cat that spends too much time shedding in the same spot in my house, these Dyson tools are saving my sanity. Does your cat have a stair? You know, the one stair in the house that he will sit on/sleep on/cuddle into for hours upon hours, day after day, year after year? Just my cat? Great. I really thought I was going to have to resign myself to having one stair that just looked kind of like it was growing its very own cat. Not anymore! The Dyson Stair Tool fits right into the small corners, and even up onto the carpeted riser. That stair now matches the rest of my carpet! When my cat isn’t sleeping on his stair, he’s monitoring the kids from his favourite chair. Lucky for me, this chair is a linen material that likes to cling onto those fine cat hairs like it’s trying to knit its own cat fur throw blanket. This chair needs the extra oomph that the Dyson Tangle-Free Turbine Tool offers. The counter rotating brush pulls fur (and my ever shedding locks) up out of the chair cushion, through the middle of the tool, and into the vacuum canister. Need to get underneath the couch to vacuum up the dust? The Dyson Articulating Hard Floor Tool is the perfect way to do it. The purple handle of the Dyson Ball Animal 2 lifts off and extends giving you the perfect length wand for attaching that Articulating Hard Floor Tool and getting under the lowest pieces of furniture.

Although the kids thought it would be a good idea, I wouldn’t recommend using the Dyson Groom Tool with your cat. If you happen to have a medium or long haired dog, this is the tool for you. I remember brushing my dog when I was a kid, and there would be dog hair everywhere. We always ended up doing it outside to keep the mess out of the house. The Dyson Groom Tool lets you brush your dog while simultaneously vacuuming up all the fur! Now that’s a great way to save time and cut down on the flying fur.

I’ve been using my Dyson Ball Animal 2 vacuum all over the house. I’ve got tile floors in the entryway, laundry room, and bathrooms, hardwood floors on the main level, a high pile carpet on the stairs and upstairs in the playroom and bedrooms, and a low pile carpet in the basement. I’ve been able to tackle all these different flooring types without changing the vacuum head on my Dyson Ball Animal 2. As much as I love the high pile carpet we have for how warm and cushy it is, I know it traps pet dander, allergens, and crushed cheerios deep down. The superior suction power of this vacuum brought up SO MUCH fine dust from the playroom carpet. It was crazy! I feel so much better about my kids playing on the floor in there now.

The Dyson Ball Animal 2 is really easy to maneuver and push around the house. The Dyson Ball means it turns really well and rounds corners with ease. It has a nice long cord, so I can plug it in on one side of my main floor and vacuum every inch of the main level without having the unplug it and move  the cord. When the canister is full, emptying it takes just the press of a button and a little shake into the garbage bin. My hands don’t even get dirty!

The Dyson Ball Animal 2 has everything you need for shiny floors off of which you could feast … if you were so inclined. I’ll be honest, my toddler has a tendency to eat things that have fallen on the floor, so having that floor truly Dyson clean doesn’t hurt! Dyson machines outperform others and are engineered to last. You get superior cleaning with the strongest suction in a vacuum that’s not only compact but also lightweight. If you’re looking for a vacuum that has the structural integrity to stand the test of time and young kids, the Dyson Ball Animal 2 is it!

  1. They ARE amazing vacuums! It lives up to every claim it makes 100% Anything that helps save time is a huge win in my books

  2. I love both my Dyson vacuums, one is a stick hand held and the other a canister. I’m always amazed at just how much it manages to suck out of my carpets – marvellous machines. 🙂 Now when they also make a massive reduction in price and improve the robot one I’d be over the moon. 🙂

  3. We are totally crazy for our Dysons. They are the only vacuum we own. I have a small hand held one for when we lived the apartment lifestyle and they were so great with it everytime it died on me. #customerserviceforthewin. That’s definitely a love affair worth having

  4. We have the dyson animal but without the ball and I absolutely agree!! Its the best vacuum EVER!! Its so amazing! Get the floor so clean and super easy to clean and use!! I adore all the tools!!

  5. Love the first photo of your son, looks like a boy with attitude “told you I have this!” sort of expression. LOL

  6. That is my dream vacuum. I have a robotic one but I find I still need a Dyson.

  7. This vacuum has seriously been on my wish list for a while now! I would love one so much. The one we have is horrible. I am definitely due for an upgrade

  8. I’ve looked at these a few times and after reading your review I’m sold! I’ll be picking one up this weekend!

  9. We own a dyson and I love using it. Love that there is no bag to fill up and it is extremely portable.

  10. I want one! I need one! (I could use a helper like that too!) I love the bagless feature of the Dyson!

  11. This vacuum sounds awesome! I love all those tools, but I seriously doubt my Golden Retriever will let me groom him with the attachment although I would love it if he did!

  12. Dyson is not in my budget, but my Shark vacuum is great! The powered brush (like the turbine) is a must for cleaning pet hair off of furniture.

  13. This is going to have to be my next vacuum. I have 3 large long haired dogs who shed terribly. I have a hoover pet that has been trusty for years but unfortunately after 15 years it is starting to show its age. Thank you for an honest review especially with vacuums!

  14. OMG I love all of the attachment’s that come with this vacume.

  15. I’ve never owned a dyson and this review makes me want one even more!

  16. I would love a great vacuum and one that will actually work and suck up all the dog hair!

  17. Dyson always steals my heart – and they are going to start making cars!

  18. Dyson is my dream! So far I can only drool over it in the store. Hopefully, one day I will be able to afford it 🙂 Thank you for this great review!!!

  19. A hear that Dysons have very strong suction. One carpet salesperson cautioned me against Dysons because she said the suction was so great that it reduces the life of the carpet by sucking up fibres. Have not idea if this is true or not. I would love a stick Dyson though.

  20. Sounds like an impressive vacuum that I will have to try out for myself.

  21. I have a Dyson vacuum cleaner. It is great. I can’t believe how much suction it has. This vacuum is so easy to use. Thank you so much for sharing. God Bless

  23. We really like our Dyson as well. I can’t imagine ever needing another one as I have never had one to go such a great job.

  24. With 2 cats and 2 dogs roaming the house this sounds like a vacuum cleaner I could use. My current cleaner is for the hardwood floors and doesn’t do well on the one carpeted room. I like all the attachments that this one has.

  25. I have the dyson V6 cordless, the best purchase I ever made. I’m in love with it. I have 14 capeted stairs and no more cord and the suction is amazing.

  26. We have been looking at vacuums, I have always wanted a Dyson..thank you for the great review! Love this one!

  27. Seriously don’t think I could ever own another brand. My favorite attachment I have is for grooming your pet. Saves me vacuuming every day. Though I do REALLY want the new v10 cordless for in between whole house vacuums.

  28. I have to say the first time I used a Dyson at my daughters I fell in love,what an amazing machine!
