Kidding Around Essentials … Dyson V6 Absolute

Okay, so I have a little confession to make! All year, I have been reading reviews from my fellow bloggers who have been lucky enough to review the newest member of the Dyson family – the Dyson V6 Absolute. I was waiting patiently not so patiently for my turn and a little bit of me thought I wouldn’t get the chance… but I should have known better! Good things come to those who wait, and boy, is the Dyson V6 Absolute a good thing!

I’m not into the nitty gritty of just how everything works – Dyson spend millions of dollars every day in research and development to make sure it just does. It you want all the specs, head HERE and if you want to know what I thought, then read on!

We have definitely put the Dyson V6 Absolute through it’s paces here at the Kidding Around Australia house. It’s cleaned up food, hair, dirt and flower petals! The only time it has faltered was when I tried to pick up a button on carpet (just because I could) and it pushed it rather than sucking it up!

It gives a really deep clean thanks to the cyclone technology that gets out all the underlying dirt that we can’t see, I was impressed and slightly horrified to see just how much was picked up and was there for all to see in the little plastic chamber!

The Dyson V6 Absolute comes with five different attachment heads and a handy charging dock for keeping everything together (although everything doesn’t fit at the same time so a little basket or something is required to keep everything out of the way)! There are two smaller heads for spot cleaning and two Dyson-engineered cleaner heads for whole house cleans.  It also comes with a mini motorised head. The cleaning heads can be attached directly to the motor for a portable, “dust buster” type cleaner perfect for the car or to the stylish red pole (or wand? I’m not sure of the technical term!) that makes it an awesome cordless upright vacuum cleaner.

Would you like to see it in action? Alegría is destined for a career in film or television – she is a born presenter!

The Dyson V6 Absolute is child’s play to use! All you need to do is hold down the trigger and it’s so simple (and light weighing only 2.2kgs) that Isaac can (and will) do it happily! It has a relatively short battery life (up to 20 minutes total) and this is cut dramatically if you use the extra strength ‘max’ power button.

The Dyson V6 Absolute is easy to clean (although it always makes me laugh – the idea of cleaning my cleaning products!). It’s simple to empty and every part comes apart easily with a flick or push so that you can really get into it if you need to. The washable filter, with HEPA filtration, doesn’t need replacing and leaves behind air that is cleaner than your currently breathing! Bonus!


After putting it through it’s paces, the Dyson V6 Absolute is a crowd favourite in this house and is definitely worth investing in! In fact, if you would like to try it out (and perhaps come and clean our house) then let me know!
