First off I would like to say I am NOT getting paid to tell you this. I have no affiliation to this company or product, I purchased it myself, use it and LOVE it.
I'd like to introduce you to one of my BFFs
iRobot vacuum and what my husband calls the "best invention EVER". We've had this little beauty for over a year now and could not be happier with it. We don't have any of the fancy accessories that make it turn itself off and on and go back to a charging station and charge itself, we actually unplug it when we want to use it and plug it back in when we are done, so we are doing sooooome work, Ha! But I have fallen even more in love with it lately......
My three kiddos have decided that it's the most fun thing to run away from. PLUS they know we have to pick up all the toys before we can run it. So when I want the toys picked up I ask if they want to run the "robot vacuum" as they call it and I get three excited kids picking up all their toys as fast as they can!
Something to put on your Christmas list people! I highly recommend it (and so do the two other familiy members I know who have one too!). Just thought I would share that with you.
