Dyson Handheld Vacuums Reviews

Dyson was created in 1993 in the United Kingdom by James Dyson, who’s company first started off manufacturing vacuum cleaners and now, is involved in manufacturing heaters, fans and hand dryers. Today, Dyson is a billion dollar company and one of the most successful innovators in the world.

However, it was a long road for James Dyson, who actually began his journey of producing ground-breaking inventions in the early 70’s and by the late 70’s, he had over 5,000 prototypes of the first Dyson vacuum. To make a long story short, he had to go all the way to Japan to find a manufacturer who would license his design, since he had a difficult time doing it in the UK and US.

Since then, Dyson have gone to unveil some amazing vacuum technology, with one of the latest and best, being the Dyson DC59 Animal (you can read more about James Dyson’s fascinating journey here).

Dyson DC44 Animal Review

One of the best handheld vacuums by Dyson is the DC44 Animal, which is now considered by many, including ourselves to be a classic.

It was the highest rated handheld vacuum on Amazon (before the DC59 stole that accolade) and now that it has been around for a couple years, its price has dropped significantly, which means much better value for consumers.

Even though the title of “Animal” indicates that it’s used for cleaning pet hair, which is does so effectively, the included attachments also allow you to easily clean hard and soft floors, narrow and tight areas and delicate surfaces. Read our full review on the Dyson DC44 Animal here.

Dyson Attachments Reviews

As great as Dyson’s vacuums are, not all of them come with enough attachments, or the right ones. This has often left consumers feeling underwhelmed, considering how much they pay for the vacuum. Nevertheless, many of them turn to buying separate Dyson attachments which are also highly innovative products.

Granted, some of the following attachments deserve to be sold separately in their own right, because they’re simply genius. If you’re at all concerned about whether the following attachments will fit your Dyson vacuum, there’s more detail inside each review.
