Giant pouffe from Vertbaudet

We recently received this fabulous giant pink pouffe from Vertbaudet.

This is an inflatable cushion, 145 x 100 cm in size, and one side is coloured (they come in either pink, green or blue) and the other side is grey.  And as my kids pointed out it quite closely resembles an elaborate air bed, so with that in mind my five year old insisted on sleeping on it the other night!

The kids have had great fun with this cushion, and it is great for providing additional seating in the sitting room - it looks good too!

This product is wipe clean, and takes up no room at all when deflated, and costs £49.99.

Air Total Home Cylinder Vacuum Cleaner by Vax

I recently received a new vacuum cleaner from the lovely people at Vax - their most powerful compact multi-cyclonic cylinder.

And WOW, what a vacuum cleaner it is!  I cannot believe I have been struggling with my other vacuum cleaner for so long, because this little beauty is incredible! 

I unpacked it on New Year's Day and let it loose on the bedroom carpets.  The carpets now look new - they have never been so clean!  This vacuum cleaner picks up everything - bits that have been stuck to the carpet for years - it is incredibly powerful, and it is so light and easy to use it practically does it itself.  And it gets under chairs and other low objects with great ease.

It comes with a a range of accessories for every cleaning task including a hard floor tool, TurboTool and Turbobrush for removing stubborn pet hairs from carpets, stairs, furniture and car seats. An extra long stretch hose lets you clean right to the top of your stairs, leaving the machine safely at the bottom.

And as it uses multi-cyclonic force, the filters don't get blocked so you always have constant, powerful suction as you clean. Multiple cyclones separate dirt from the air path so it collects in the container, not the filter.

I cannot sing its praises enough - it has revolutionised the whole cleaning experience.  (I never ever thought I would get so excited about a vacuum cleaner)

It retails at £249.99 but Vax currently have it on offer at £179.99!
