Dyson Ball Animal 2 Simply the Best

5 Minute Assembly

Before we talk about the Dyson Ball Animal 2, as a point of reference; have you ever assembled furniture you purchased at that Swedish company with the yellow and blue building? 

Yes you know who I mean.

You buy a dresser, bring it home with the help of two of the strongest people you know, carry it in your house.

We have all done it.

And we know we need to set aside 4 hours to complete a simple assembly, assuming all the parts are in the box.

It can be a difficult and frustrating experience assembling furniture . . . that arrives in 100 pieces.

James Dyson has created new meaning to the phrase “some assembly required”.

When you open the Dyson Ball Animal 2 box you find the components all neatly compartmentalized within the box and protected by corrugated inserts and plastic bags.

Do you see the white paper wrapped around the cylindrical shaped part in the box?

The white folder is the instruction sheet.  

Grab the instruction sheet and you find yourself flipping through the 8 pages.

You quickly discover that all you need to look at is the front page.

There are 4 components that need to snap together.

No tools required (no husband required)

Yes 1, 2 , 3 and 4 pieces snap together.


4 Simple Steps

First you snap the Dyson Ball Animal 2 head on.

I raced around the living room immediately and witnessed the clear waste canister fill up with dog hair.

I was shocked because I vacuum daily.

Click a button on the canister and trap at the bottom opens and releases the contents.

Dyson Ball Animal 2 has an amazing variety of Accessories

There are accessories that snap onto the assembled Dyson Ball Animal 2 show on pages 6 & 7 and some use instructions.

The Dyson Ball Animal 2 comes with an assortment of accessories that attach to the vacuum. 

This is an awesome feature as they travel through the house with you.

This accessory allows you to reach corners and edges in ceramic tile floors.

Next I needed to learn how good the Dyson Ball Animal 2 worked on the difficult to reach ceiling corners.

The Dyson Ball Animal 2 worked very well as the hose and accessory is very light and easy to maneuver.

Notice the brush on the end of the accessory; it slides into place at the end or retracts back out of the way.

And finally we tested this unit on our sliding glass door tracks.

Our last vacuum did not have enough suction to properly clean the track.

Our sliding door tracks are deep and awkward to reach.

The Dyson Ball Animal 2 suction is the best I have ever experienced.

Dyson Ball Animal 2 leaves nothing behind!

Many Dyson products have won the Parent Tested Parent Approved (PTPA) Seal of Approval. 

This means that people like me have put these Dyson products through difficult tests.

So far Dyson has amazed me with respect to ease of assembly and use. 

I really can not envision a better and more versatile vacuum for our lifestyle.  

In our next article we will review in detail the animal hair attachments and learn why this amazing vacuum is called the Dyson Ball Animal 2.
