When I got this BISSELL PowerForce Turbo Bagless Vacuum, my 4 year old happened to be right there and was excited because she loves to vacuum. Don't let the size and weight of it fool you. It's size and weight add to its appeal. It isn't too loud but works really well. I love the design and look and just how well it works. Bagless and easy to set up, use and clean Definitely recommend, not only for its compact design and features, but also because it is very lightweight and not back ache inducing to use.
