If you are a parent, you most likely stepped on a LEGO or two. As you know, they hurt like the Dicken’s! And they are really small and can be a pain in the booty to pick up. We have 4 children so you can imagine the amount of LEGO’s and other small toys that accumulate around my house and make their way onto the floor. I NEVER go barefoot anymore. My poor feet just can’t handle the pain of stepping on one!
Recently, I learned that BISSELL Perfect Sweep Turbo is going to be at Toy Fair in Louisville, KY and even though I can’t make it to Toy Fair this year, I was asked if I’d like to try one for myself. Uh, yeah! The BISSELL Perfect Sweep Turbo is a cordless, rechargeable sweeper with dual edge cleaning brushes. It boats a 60 minute cleaning time and is very lightweight.
You can use it on bare floors or carpet to pick up dirt, crumbs and pet hair. But how does it do on LEGO’s? Watch my video below to find out our results!:
- Handle lies flat for low reach and if you need to store it hanging up with the looped handle
- Easy empty dirt cup
- Converts to handheld sweeper
- Auto floor height adjustment
- 12 inch cleaning path
This is one super duper, handy “sweeper”. I put that in quotes to emphasize it because I want to make clear that this is a sweeper and not a vacuum. There is no suction action. There is a little motor that turns the brushes and they literally “sweep” dirt, hair, etc. into the cup. It is a great addition to using a broom too! I can’t always get all the dirt onto my dust pan because our vinyl flooring is heavily textured. So I usually sweep the bare floor with a broom and then use the BISSELL Perfect Sweep Turbo to pick up what I’ve swept up. It works perfectly!
It is also a huge time saver for small pieces of paper that make their way onto the floor from my 3-hole punch. I can use this to just sweep them right up without having to use my bigger, beloved BISSELL vacuum. There’s just no sense in dragging out the larger one for a small area. It works great on area rugs too!
You can also lift the handle out very easily to use it as a small hand vacuum. See?
It has a nice, wide, 12 inch cleaning path with a little spinning brush on each side. When you turn it on, those brushes on the side don’t spin until you move the sweeper. They are great for getting things around the edges.
The easy empty dirt cup really is very easy to empty. Just lift it out, tilt it to empty into the trash and slide it back into place. Easy peasy!
And it holds quite a bit of dirt, dust, hair and small toys too! It’s actually kinda yucky!
So, as you can see, this is a really great tool to have around your home. You can see the dust and hair that it grabbed with the LEGO’s in the photo above. It saves on electricity when you have small sweep up jobs. It is light weight and portable. And it helps keep your toe-sies safe from small, hard, hidden objects left behind by your precious little rapscallions!
