I was looking at the replacement attachments for vacuums at my Sears. They still sell the 4 piece set of tools that the older Kenmores took up through the first gen Progressives and Panasonics used until recently when they got out of the market.

What's odd is the dusting brushes look slightly different than those that originally come with Panasonics. Also, the dusting brushes and fabric tools come in a clear and maroon packaging with the old Sears logo on them and I think this packaging may go back to the 90s, but I know these have not been sitting in the store that long because they do run out at times. The floor brushes and crevice tools are in a white plastic bag with carboard at the top that has the new Kenmore logo, and these have just started showing up with this packaging in the last few months.

Here's what I'm talking about.

Note the dusting brush and fabric tool are in older sryle packaging. The newer packaging on the floor brush and crevice tool just started showing up last year. These dusting brushes seem to be made of a hard plastic, not the rubber I'm used to seeing with Panasonic/ Kenmore. Could these be made by someone else? They are soft horsehair though.

I remember the maroon packaging being used in the 90s but I'm thinking they must have used it until very recently.
