Paladone’s Hetty Desk Vac is a scaled down version of the original Hetty Vacuum Cleaner first launched by Numatic International Ltd in 1980. 30 years later, Hetty’s smiling features are instantly recognisable and she’s become a well-loved icon of domestic life. Pretty in pink, Paladone’s Hetty Desk Vac is perfect for use in the home or office. She’ll remove all sorts of crumbs and dust from your desktop and ensure it’s kept spotless. Hetty even comes with a handy crevice tool to help you reach all those hard to reach areas on your keyboard. No bags required, simply unscrew top to empty.

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.
I would describe it as a toy only.

Not very good quality, no suction, very gimmicky
Not recommended if you actually want to use it!
