Is there a time when my carpet or kitchen floor ever clean? YES, for like ten minutes tops, then every crumb breaks loose. Last time I checked, snack times are twice a day, and not every hour! If you have multiple kids like me, ahem, three under the age of ten... (gulp), then you know that it is impossible to have a squeaky clean, or better yet, a crumb-free house. I'm going to get real personal here, moms and dads. I have two brooms, two dustpans, and one small set for small areas. When I say small areas, I mean like small dirty spots in MANY areas. All of my brooms are loved, as in... they get used a lot throughout the day. Being a stay at home mom is awesome in many ways, but if I'm going to be completely honest and personal, sweeping messes, gets old, FAST. Not to mention, at times my back would cry. Fast forward a few years later since becoming a mom of three, technology has advanced and its got my back, LITERALLY. Are you jumping for joy yet? because for the last few weeks of mommying, I haven't picked up a vacuum. I'm here to share you my secret.
Our family has a new member, named bObi, and she's a real classic! bObi Classic is a robotic, vacuum cleaner that loves to help the mama of the house. I'm real impressed with her that I nicknamed her Donutina, and if you're a tokidoki lover, you know that nicknaming your household items after them is a real winner. One thing I notice right off the bat since having bObi, is that my multi-tasking game have been on top. My household chores definitely gets done much quicker. For example, I can either wash an entire sink of dirty dishes, fold laundry, cook a meal, bathe a toddler, or....eat while bObi sweeps up all the mess. Also, those days that you do not want to adult and just wants to join your little ones in a day of rest or bonding and forget about cleaning anything at all.... your floor will STILL be clean. Bring out the game of 'Guess Who' with your little, and let bObi.
bObi comes with a pretty nifty remote controller with all the features and choices you would need in a given day. For example, if you just want her to just let loose in your home, the GO feature is amazing. I go upstairs to fold some laundry, come back downstairs, and I totally feel like a super mom. Yes moms and dads, it's possible to have upstairs and downstairs clean at the same time. If one of your children decides to spill their crackers in one area of your home, WAFFLE option will take care of that area. Do you remember when you were little and you had one of those remote control cars? Well, I feel like a kid again, adult-style. You can play and you can adult at the same time. How can this even be REAL?! Playing while cleaning? bObsweep works manually so that you can control where you need things cleaned.
My little one, Mimi with her Stellina Unicorno and her Princess Disney Book is all in her comfort zone. It's cold and flu season, and it's not a surprise it caught up to us. Of course, it's also no surprise that she would want to snuggle with me, like all day. Moments like these are so precious though, and I also love not having to worry about cleaning. We all know that when you let go of cleaning for just one day, it is still there waiting for you the next day, double time. Haha! The sound of bObi is also very relaxing, our family loves to sleep with white noise, and bObi's sound during the day is extremely comforting. Knowing my home is taken care of while I take care of my little one is more than I could ask for. Bye, Mom-Guilt!
I'm one of those moms who know that I live in a generation of technology, but I'm still astounded and in disbelief for it. Yes, yes, I know having a robotic vacuum cleaner is enough reason... but reading through bObsweep's manual regarding bObi actually finding the charging station all by itself at 15% battery life? NO WAY. I wasn't fast to believe that part, and I didn't really care to find out either. I didn't mind charging her manually. I had her running downstairs when my hubby was on the computer, and an hour later I asked him where it had gone. He told me it went back to recharging station, BY ITSELF! I'm a believer and will never doubt you again, bObi.
The charging station works best if it is on a hard surface and set by a wall, so that it is easier for bObi to mount to. In the beginning, it took quite a while for her to find the station, but now overtime I check on her, she's found her way back for her nap time all safe and sound! When she is recharging, a light will blink on the top that lets you know that she's mounted correctly. I usually turn the button to off as well!
I love how this comes with an array of accessories as well. From an extra brush, an extra main brush, mop extender, extra filter, and a cleaning tool! It was super easy to clean the filter and to remove the dirt that was collected as well. What do you think of this style? bObi Classic is one of the many robotic vacuum cleaner from bObsweep, you can check it out here: bobi.bobsweep.com. They are also having a pretty awesome deal going on at amazon right now. Check it out now here. I love her super sleek monochrome design, so gorgeous and beautiful! Have you tried anything like bObi before? What's your favorite feature about her?
