No.  You aren’t dreaming.  Stop pinching yourself!

I am so excited about this review, I can’t stop squealing!


When I saw this baby, I knew you would all just love it!  The Neato Robotics XV-21 Vacuum!

I HATE vacuuming.  I know that there are people who love to clean, but I am just not one of those people.  I have fallen so in love with this product!


The Neato Robotics XV-21 Vacuum does all of your vacuuming for you.  Your whole house!  (with the exception of stairs, darn!)


This robotic vacuum is very different from the “other” robotic vacuums on the market.  It doesn’t just go around and around.  It doesn’t bump into your furniture.  It actually scans the room and cleans your floors systematically.


From the Neato website:


It scans, maps and plans.

Most other robot vacuums move around a room at random. They bump into walls, bump into furniture. They go in circles, cleaning some spots several times and others not at all. But Neato knows exactly where it’s going at all times.

Its remarkable laser eye uses infrared light to scan the surroundings five times every second. The result is a highly accurate 360° map of the room and any obstacles. Then the robot efficiently cleans in a pattern of straight, overlapping lines.

Check out this great video from Neato!



This little guy is so cute, I want to name him!  (My husband thinks I need a dog!  Ha!)


I love the features my Neato has.

You can program it to vacuum Monday-Friday, any start-up time that you like.  One day a week, two days a week, three days a week or everyday!  When it is done vacuuming or needs to recharge, it will go back to it’s charging station.  If it hasn’t cleaned the whole area, it will automatically start up and finish right where it left off!

You can set it to “spot clean” and it will clean a square area, wherever you place it.

It will go from carpet to tile to kitchen flooring without hesitating!  You can purchase special pleated filters that remove particles from the air stream down to 3 microns in size, including mold, spores, cat and dog dander, dust mites, pollen, textile and carpet fibers.

The Neato Robotics XV-21 Vacuum may be purchased on the Neato website ($429.99 with Free Shipping).    It is also available on  You can also find it at many retailers near you!
