Little Bo Sweep

*This is NOT a sponsored post--just my honest review of something I invested what I feel is a good amount of $ in as a teacher on a budget! 

About 3 months ago I purchased a Bobi robot vacuum for our new home. In our new home, we have all wood floors (with the exception of the playroom which has carpet and bathrooms have laminate) I wanted to wait a few months so I could let everyone know my honest opinion on an investment on a robotic vacuum. 

First thing I did was research. Bobi vs competitor the Roomba. Reviews for each of these are all over the place. The main thing I was looking at was suction of hair. Human hair and dog hair are my biggest cuprits in my own home. Most of you know I have a Pomeranian, who doesn't shed much, but we get the occasional dust bunnies from her and the usual dust, dirt and debris. 

Pricewise, I found the Bobi to be a little more affordable and can do just as much as a Roomba can do featurewise. I went with the Bobi for this reason, and also because I heard the canister size was double the Roomba. 

In the video clips below you can watch how it operates in my home, and hear my commentary on it! 

So here we are 3 months out, and I can honestly tell you I don't know what I'd do without my Bobi! I am a busy first time mom, and I really wanted something that would help cut down on my cleaning each day/week. I am super anal about clean floors, now even moreso because I have a baby who isn't far from learning to crawl! 

If you have relatively clutter free floors, then the Bobi is for you! If you are someone who has a lot of things on the floor, then I am worried you'd find it more of a hassle to have to pick everything up off the floor beforehand. The Bobi WILL SUCK things you leave on the floor up! Case in point, my laptop cord was lying on the floor and the bobi did suck it up and get tangled. It didn't cause damage to it which was a good thing, but it did need to be untangled. 

Pet Hair. 
If you have a massively large dog with a lot of hair, be advised this may create more work for you than help you. I don't think these robotic vacuums are meant for that type of cleaning which sadly is what most people want them for. You need a dog/cat that doesn't shed like crazy, which is why I think it works best for me and my home since my dog sheds very little say compared to a husky or german shepard. 

The bin should be emptied daily for optimal performance in my opinion. I have let it gone two days max before remembering that I didn't empty the bin the day before.

It does what it's supposed to do--get the annoying dust and dirt on your floor. However, if you have carpets on carpet pads, be advised that if they don't lie perfectly flat on your floor, sometimes the bobi can get stuck on a corner and will need you to move it along or reset it to go again. 

The bobi has a mop feature, but I can honestly tell you I don't use it since I didn't purchase it for that reason. I usually use my Ocedars mop once a week for the whole floor. 

Will this replace your normal vacuum? No. Not for normal carpeted rooms I don't think so. You'd still need a normal vacuum to go over your floor. For your wood floors? The Bobi is the only vacuum I use on it. I don't use my big vacuum on them. It gets the job done. 

I hope this review helps some of you especially with BLACK FRIDAY tomorrow! Be sure to snatch it up while they last!
