There are some household items that you can’t skimp on… like a good vacuum. When your vacuum doesn’t pick up dirt the way it should, you know it’s time for a change. But many people make the mistake of buying inexpensive vacuums that end up breaking down after just a few months. Count the number of vacuums that you may have purchased over the course of a few years and you’ve spent much more money than you ever imagined!

Investing in a good vacuum is a sensible idea. You’ll need a better vacuum with features like HEPA filters to block dust and dander from the air in your home. The Dyson Ball Animal 2 vacuum cleaner has the best section to pull all the dirt and dust off floors and upholstery. I was given one to try and review. Here are my thoughts:

Dyson Ball Animal 2 Vacuum


The vacuum is easy to assemble and use. I unpacked the Dyson Ball Animal 2 and put it together. Within a few minutes, I was ready to vacuum.

I plugged it in, and hit the carpet with it first. I could feel a bit of resistance when I started on the carpet, and couldn’t believe the suction that came out of the wand! I only did a small patch and was amazed by the amount of dirt and dust it already picked up.  The Dyson Ball Animal 2 vacuum pulled dust out of my carpet that I didn’t even know was there!

The ball is helps the vacuum swivel easily, which makes it simple to get around things without breaking your back.

Everything on the vacuum uses the same button release. The hose from the instant-release wand is long and flexible, and can reach high and small spaces. You can easily switch from vacuuming the carpet to detaching the long wand and cleaning the corners and ceilings, to cleaning the hardwood and tile floors.


There are several attachments and they are easy to hook them up;  the Tangle Free Turbine tool to thoroughly clean your couches and other upholstery, the Combination tool to help you reach up into the rafters and grab those cobwebs, and the articulating hard floor tool for all of your hard floors; and the Stair tool to clean your stairs.  If you have a pet, you’ll love the Dyson Groom tool which looks like a cat brush and it attaches to the long wand.

The Dyson Ball Animal 2 vacuum is easy to clean; all you have to do is pop off the bin, push down on a button, and you can easily empty dirt into the garbage. Once every month to two months, just remove and wash the bin and filter in cold water, allow to air dry, and pop back in.


The Dyson Ball Animal 2 vacuum has a 5 year warranty for parts and labour including service and parts (free shipping too), and support from Dyson Experts. For the price, you have 5 years guarantee that if a problem does arise, you’re covered. Now that’s a smart investment!

  1. Awesome unboxing + demo vid! This vacuum definitely gets the job done and more! Dyson never disappoints.

  2. I am struggling with our current vacuum cleaner because it is losing suction and the brushes are wrapped in lint and hair that I can’t seem to remove completely. I would love to replace it with an awesome Dyson like this one!

  3. One of my biggest frustration is that my vaccuum doesn’t do a good job on the carpet, and that’s a big part of our living space! This would be so awesome to win! Thanks for the chance!

  4. Your dad will LOVE vacuuming now! haha. My current vacuum loses suction all the time & has no maneuverability to get into the places I need. Plus it’s so heavy. The Dyson Ball Animal 2 sounds like a cleaning dream come true!

    My biggest frustration is the lack of suction and the cord getting tangles.

  6. Catherine Robichaud Reply

    I have been wanting a Dyson vacuum for years. This one sounds amazing. I would love the Groom tool for my cats and dog.

  7. Sunshine G Reply

    The cord on ours is too short and I keep having to unplug and replug it in!

  8. Judy Cowan Reply

    What a dream vacuum! Sounds like the perfect one for our 4 pet household!

  9. My current vacuum does not ave much suction. I ave to go over the same area a few times.

  10. We have a regular Dyson right now and as much as I love it, I’ve done a number on it over the years. Really need a new one that I haven’t broken twice 😉

  11. My biggest struggle with my current vacuum is that it is so heavy and it is also hard to get into small places

    • I just noticed you are in Canada. Is this giveaway good in the U.S.?????

  12. My two biggest vacuum frustrations are the weight of my current vacuum cause it’s not easy to lug around and two it leaves all my dogs fine hairs behind.

  13. Amy Heffernan Reply

    My biggest frustration is the cleaning power is not strong. I use a small stick vac and it SUCKS 🙁

  14. Everything about this vacuum looks amazing! Our current vacuum weighs eight trillion pounds and has mediocre suction at best. When I vacuum hard floors the dirt shoots out the back and hits my feet :/

  15. My current struggle with my current vacuum is it doesn’t suck up all of the things out of my carpet and flooring. I need a better vacuum. Thank you for hosting this giveaway
