I've been thinking for ages to get a dustbuster for when I'm minding.

I've no idea which one to get, anyone got any recommendations?

I have an electric carpet sweeper made by gtech about £40
Its fab charge lasts ages
its really light
easy to empty
eats a whole fishfinger I kid you not
Plus the mindees love to use it:thumbsup:

We have a black and decker dustbuster-its worth the extra money, they are fab! And best of all-the little ones like doing the 'hoovering' when they've made a mess :clapping: :clapping: They arent powerful enough to hurt at all, so I let them get on with it, saves me a job! :laughing: :laughing:

We bought a bog standard carpet sweeper. Cost a tenner from Robert Dyas and its fab. The children love using it to. :thumbsup:

Ours is a black and decker as well. We got it in the sale on amazon and it is worth every penny! Gets used daily!!! Although I really do need to clean it out! Hate that part!!! Would defo recommend getting one!

I need to get one too! I'm so fed up of sweeping up and then having to get the dustpan and brush out too.

Think mine might be a Black & Decker! I got it for £19.99 in the Argos sale. I got mine as one of the mindees has an allergy to eggs so I use it every day to clean up after snacks/lunch so he doesn't pick up anything he shouldn't!! Sometimes I use my Henry if its a really messy rug, but this is really good for a few crumbs!!!

I love my dustbuster!
But then i am a bit obsessive about hoovering.

Mine is a rechargeable Black and decker.

i leave it on charge all the time.

Couldnt manage without one. In fact when my last one broke i had a mini meltdown and had to go out the next day to replace it!!!
