Henry Desktop Vacuum: World Cutest Desktop Vacuum

Henry Desktop Vacuum: World Cutest Desktop Vacuum

We're trying very, very hard to beat a bad habit of eating while working on the new computer. Although it was manageable and fairly easy to clean an external keyboard with the desktop, keeping the laptop as pristine as possible means stricter computing/eating habits. It also means regular wipe downs and a weekly vacuum session for dust, hair and cooties to keep the laptop looking new. We have a full size Hoover vac for our household cleaning, but we're partial to the idea of having something more portable and diminutive for our small home office cleaning duties, like this AA battery powered hand (palm?) vac....

Actually, upon review of the video shown here, we're going to say this is a definite pass. The vacuum seems barely capable of sucking in crumbs, and in the time that the person was able to clean the small mess created to showcase Henry's capabilities, a common Dustbuster-style hand vac (or even a USB powered one) would have been able to clean it up 5 times over. We'll maintain Henry is the cutest miniature vacuum, but can't recommend it because it sucks in the wrong way and should be relegated to the toy aisle. Maybe we'll just repaint out Hoover Constellation and add some cute eyes and smile and call it a day.
