I absolutely adore Hetty! She sits on my desk and sucks up all the crumbs, ash and other bits that menace my laptop. I've even used her to suck bits off my clothing. She's great, resilient even. She's fallen off the desk top a couple of times and been completely unscathed.

By Su TOP 500 REVIEWER on 2 May 2010
This is a cute little battery-operated vacuum cleaner which can be used for sucking up those desk crumbs and dust piles seem to gather in the corners and under the edges of computers and printers.

It comes with a number of "tools" - a slightly flexible hose extension (17.4 cm in length), a solid straight extension tube (8.5 cm), a solid, but slightly bent, extension tube (8 cm), a flat end tool (base 4.5 cm by 1.4 cm), and a crevice tool (4.5 cm by 4 cm).

Little Hetty herself is 10.5 centimetres high with a 10 cm circumference and is 11 cm from the rear axle to "nose".

It requires 3 AA batteries to operate it and though it is not as strong as a proper vacuum cleaner (well it's a desk toy after all) it will pick up crumbs and dust providing you remember to keep the nozzle end at a slight angle. If you run it flat to the table/desk it will not pick up. Once you have this slight angle Hetty works perfectly.

She will never take the place of a dust cloth but those corners and edges you just can't get to manually, she does a nice job.

Hetty is a wonderful icebreaker; and a look at her happy smiling face can help to relieve those stressful at work moments, but you might want to consider locking her in your desk overnight, or you could come in the following morning and find it had gone "missing" - such is its attraction.

This is a great little device that actually does what it says on the box, sucks up dust off your worktop. And it is undeniably cute in appearance too. I bought this for my Wife as she uses a full size one at work, and she loves it. It is really well made, and is capapble of sucking dust and other small particles off your desktop. Well worth the few pennies asked to have a little gem in your possession.

This was a secret santa gift, the owner and the rest of the office went mad for a go at cleaning their PC key board & desk. Great Success......................................

I bought this desktop vacuum for the purpose of sucking the lint from inside my sewing machine. It cannot lift a crumb. Don't buy it if you want it to work.

I would describe it as a toy only.

I use this to clean my ipad cover and I am very happy with it. When assembling the Hetty it was difficult to force the hose onto the main body of the cleaner and it split slightly, but I stuck on a bit of insulation tape and it still worked fine.

Pretty much does what it says on the tin, it looks like Hetty, and it hoovers small stuff up. Good for an occasional laugh, or cleaning up spilt cereal, not much use for anything else though.

Despite the box suggesting a more powerful product, this hoover is next to useless. Although it would be more appropriate with a brush attatchment and there is some evidence in the hoover that it has picked up some dust-like particles, if you want some thing that looks somewhat cute then buy it, otherwise don't bother.
