Disclosure: This product was sent for review. All opinions and my newly discovered love for Dyson is completely my own.
I’ve always heard about Dyson vacuums but for some reason I never believed the hype. I heard about how they were the best of the best and that they cleaned better than any other vacuum on the market. Again, I didn’t believe it – I just stuck with my $30 Walmart vacuum because if it broke (which many of ours have) I could easily replace it.
Well friends, I am officially admitting right here that I was wrong. This Dyson (we have the DC65 Animal Upright) has completely changed everything. This thing is just so cool I don’t even know where to start.
Putting it together was a breeze and the final product is just absolutely gorgeous. I don’t think I’ve ever called a vacuum “gorgeous” before, but this one is. It is a lovely shade of purple (right on trend for this year) and it is just built so beautifully. It’s incredibly sturdy and well made.
The ball at the base allows the vacuum to easily maneuver around everything – and I really put this to the test because I’ve got lots baby items (baby bouncers, swings, toys, etc.). I would get so frustrated using our old vacuum, always have to work in straight lines – with the Animal you can easily twirl and whirl this bad boy around, it’s great!
See what it says in the image above? It’s got twice the suction of any other vacuum that was studied, that’s a huge deal! We have two cats, a dog, and two messy little ones (and two messy adults) in our home – we needed a vacuum that could keep up with all of the occupants in this house. And believe me, with all the pet hair – we need all of the suction we can get! I was amazed at how well it picked up Emma’s dog hair – she sheds more than the cats do and it feels like with my old vacuum I would have to go over the same spot 100 times to get a single spot clean. Well, not with this vacuum!
Check out this BEFORE & AFTER photo:
Crazy, huh? It picked up EVERYTHING and made the rug look brand-spankin’-new! Oh, and did I mention that this was after I had vacuumed the rug with my old vacuum? That’s how powerful this Dyson is!
It picks up all of the dirt and hair, comes with all of the parts you need, and I don’t have to worry about it breaking because it’s built using the same materials as riot shields and crash helmets – perfect for a household with a toddler who loves to knock things over (like mine!). It also traps allergens and expels cleaner air!
Check out all of these cool attachments it comes with:
Pretty much anything you need cleaned, this Dyson can get it done. Couches, rugs, hard wood floors, carpet, even if you just want to dust! It’s simply amazing. There are two settings – a carpet setting and a hard floor setting. I can literally go from the living room to the kitchen with the push of a button. No sweeping, the vacuum adjusts!
I know that I’m ranting and raving about this vacuum, but I’m honestly telling you that I LOVE it. It has made cleaning so much easier! I can use the wand to reach places I never could before (I’m short) and I can do it with ease. It makes me want to vacuum all the time because it makes our floors look amazing – I just can’t say enough good things about this little purple miracle!

Now, I’m off to vacuum!
That vacuum looks awesome!! We need a new one and would love to have this one!
Thank you, Rachel! It really is awesome! I can never go back now – I’m DYSON for life! 🙂
I just need to cave and get a Dyson. Our vacuum is super old and we got it for a dollar at a garage sale. I’ll let you guess how well that works
A dollar? You can’t beat that deal!! But, seriously – compared to my old vacuum this one is WORLDS above it. I can’t believe how well it cleans! Our kitty, Mason has asthma and I am hoping that deep cleaning with this bad boy will help her out!
Oh wow! That before and after shot is insane! We have all vinyl floors right now (like, hospital flooring. It’s sick.), but I’m drooling over that Dyson! 😀
I know, right? CRAZINESS! I am just in love with this vacuum!! And this bad boy does hard floors AND carpet! It’s amazing! 🙂
Looks like an amazing little vacuum. I love that they kept the furry friends in mind too!
Oh, me too! I love that pet hair doesn’t have to be a concern anymore! Wyatt was starting to become “that kid” at school, always having hair on him! LOL
I’ve had a Dyson on my wish list for quite awhile now! They are definitely the coolest vacuums on the market!
They work SO well and pick up SO much – it’s amazing!
Oh my gosh, Kendall! I don’t think I’ve EVER been so jealous of someone in my life! Having three kids, a big shedding dog & a cat, I would kill for a Dyson!
LOL. I know – I have two cats, a dog, and two little ones – so I can completely relate. You would’t believe how much HAIR this thing picks up!
My parents have had two dysons and I always enjoyed those because they work so well. We just got a shark (not a dyson brand because holy wow, expensive!) and I’m amazed at how well it works. It’s been compared to the dyson and I love it just as well as my parents. Total sucker for good cleaning tools! Awesome item to review!
Love that you said ” total sucker for cleaning tools” 🙂 – I have never loved a vacuum so much. It makes a world of difference!
I love my dyson. I got the canister one last year and it definitely helps with the pet hair.
I’ve never babied a vacuum so much – I want this thing to last forever. I love hearing other dyson love stories! 🙂
LOVE my Dyson. Can’t live without it!
Yes! Love to hear that! 🙂
We LOVE our Dyson. With 2 big dogs, a cat, 2 kids, and 1 husband we NEED it! Glad you loved it, that before and after shot is crazy!
Isn’t it? I couldn’t believe how much cat and dog hair it picked up!!
I never believed the hype either! SO happy to hear it lived up to it! I need to try one stat!
You really do – your mind will be BLOWN!
Seriously… I’ve been dying for a Dyson forever and ever now! They are just AMAZING! Sometimes I even go “visit” them at Target. Pathetic, right? One day I WILL have a Dyson! Enjoy your shiny new vacuum! 🙂
Awe, lol! I’ve been eyeing them forever too – but I never believed they did what they said. But, they do – it’s just crazy.
Oh, I’m SO jealous! I need a new vacuum so bad and this one looks amazing! I’m adding it to my wishlist! Thanks for sharing about it!
Plus, it’s PURPLE! There’s nothing better than a purple vacuum! 🙂 Let me know how you like it!
This exact vacuum is on our “to-buy” list but at the moment, it is just a budget problem you know? We’ve gone through several cheapie ones and currently, we don’t have one at all. Opps! But we do have rugs with LOTS of pet hair (two cats and two dogs will do that) so fingers crossed I can figure out a way to get this sucker (pun intended) to my house soon!
I was in the same situation – we went through vacuums like CRAZY so I would always run to Walmart and pick up a cheap one. But a few cheap ones a year add up quick! I really believe the Dyson is worth the investment!
I’m so jealous! I want one!
Get it girl! You won’t regret it!
This is something very special and unique. I really love the concept and idea. Thank you so so much for sharing this amazing blog.
