You should get the R/C one, it's about the same size as the desktop one, but of course you can drive it about like an R/C car, then you'll have the whole fleet... :P

The fire extinquisher on the right gives you an idea of the scale of sizes.

The Walt Disney Company should supply all their resort hotels with these cute smiley vacs! The kids would love 'em!

I was so afraid of vacuum cleaners when I was a small toddler - these Henry's would be the perfect vac to help kids overcome their fears!

What about a whole Henry animatronic vacuum orchestra at the United Kingdom pavilion at Florida's EPCOT theme park? :-)

(Maybe Disney could contract Numatic to create some special characters for the vacs?)

"Where do you get them?"

Ah, I may have made an error, I was just looking at "Henry toy" results on ebay, and found they were wind-up racer things, not R/C Henries, I was going off memory and what the sign said in a Cash Wizard shop, selling them as R/C toys (never did look at them up close)... :S

Still, they come as a pair, a Henry and a Hetty, so you can have some desktop Vacky races (gettit? :P ) still... :D

Oh, and they also have a Sit & Ride thing for toddlers too, I think they're trying too hard now... :P

Anyway, a link to the wind-up racers:

Amazing cleaners. Just shows what is really needed to make a decent cylinder cleaner which does what you buy it to do.

Ive got the keyrings including a Hetty one. I also have two mugs -by the way the desktop vacuum is a load of rubbish! Doesn't suck very well.

I've got a desktop one too, somewhere, I modified it though to take a 9v battery, that certainly got it to work, for about 5 minutes before the motor screamed and died... :P

Damned cheap chinese toy motors... :P

When have those desktop Vacuum Cleaners ever worked well ?

I bought a cheap one (not a Henry) from eBay for 99p a year or two ago. It is green and from china.

It does pick up, a bit, and plugs into the computer's USB port.

Personally I don't like it that much, hence not using it in over a year.

The only good thing about it is that it has a headlight!

In fact, here are two pictures I just took of it.

I bought one of those mini USB Hoover Senior-style vacs a few years ago, and frankly, out of the box it was poo, so, again I modified it, and it worked better, cos I modified it so it was a dirty-fan vac (as per the original thing) with a cloth bag on the back, but unfortunately it got put in a box, and then some heavy 12v 7ah lead acid batteries were added to the same box, and it got crushed... :\

And here is one when I turned it on for the first time in ages, surprised it still works actually.

One of the reasons to why I keep my Miele cylinder vac:

The turbo brush is great for upholstery, stairs - but the I never use the long crevice tool - the best tool for shifting dust out of PC's is the long thin suction hose that fits over the handle and has a tiny push up push down brush on the end of its tiny crevice.

Mind you, if you had another vacuum cleaner like a Bosch cylinder vac, you could use the same tools as they have the same 3.5mm measurement.
