Noo-Noo Wall-E

Those of you who have kids, may know Noo-Noo, the robot vacuum cleaner from the Teletubbies…

Mr Esther and I do not like doing any household chores and vacuum cleaning is one of the worst. Usually Mr Esther does it but as he also hates it, the vacuuming doesn’t happen nearly often enough. We’ve been able to save a little and finally decided to invest in our own robot vacuum cleaner. It arrived yesterday and oh my goodness, it’s so cute! Ours is not as versatile in what it can do as the Teletubbies’ Noo-Noo but we have quite fallen in love.

Mini me has christened our little robot Noo-Noo and we’re thinking we may even acquire some googly eyes in time to stick on it. Noo-Noo is controled through an app on our phones. It maps out the whole downstairs area and you can select which area you want to have cleaned. It even goes underneath the couch and other furniture that is high enough off the ground. Mr E has programmed it to vacuum certain areas every other night but we can send out Noo-Noo for a cleaning task in any area at any time we want to if we think it’s necessary. This floor is going to be cleaner than it’s ever been before.

Junior has decided to name Noo-Noo Wall-E instead, after that other cute movie robot.

This little robot is already a very popular new inhabitant in our home, although we’re not sure yet what the cats will do when they finally encounter Noo-Noo Wall-E at 2.30 am at night on their own.

I’ve got to tell you, I’ve never been this enthusiastic about a household appliance before, now even I will enjoy vacuuming. It’s certainly going to be a popular little party trick to show people who come to visit our house. 🥳 Now, if only there was a robot to do all the laundry folding, I’d totally get one of those as well.

  1. Hahaha, what a fabulous appliance. Don’t worry about the cats, though – I think they will soon discover that Noo-noo is a great vehicle. (I’ve heard that some people actually get vacuum robots specifically for their cats to keep them entertained while they are at work.) Wouldn’t mind such a miracle machine myself, but in a house with mostly floorboards it doesn’t make sense. Enjoy the new toy!!!

    1. Thank you. 🙂
      Now you mention it, I have seen little films of cats sitting on top of these. However, our old cat was a little freaked by it when he encountered it for the first time yesterday. Maybe in time he’ll grow to love it.

    You can just stop folding all your laundry. (Do not ask me how I know this. Another top housekeeping tip: just put all your clean socks in a box and pull them out as you need them. Matching socks are a bourgeois convention.)

    A vacuum cleaner like yours was apparently one of the top sellers on Prime Day this year, so you’re obviously not the only one who feels the way you do. I will be getting one of these shortly, but I have to get one that switches between laminate and carpet.

    1. LOL, somehow not folding at all almost feels wrong. We at the very least need to divide the laundry into 4 piles for each person in our household…

      Our Noo-Noo Wall-E knows the difference between the tile floor and the carpets. Very useful!

      Apparier les chaussettes avant lavage peut s’avérer utile et pratique.Car je possède un sac d’une trentaine de chaussettes célibataires qui attendent désesperemment leur partenaire …

        Since most of the time nobody sees my socks, I just usually pull two out and put them on. I mean, those poor isolated socks! Let them out once in a while to find new loves (LOL).

        1. Actually, I’m now thinking that in the future I will divide all socks into piles per person (in our household it’s pretty clear which socks belong to whom) and then everyone can decide for themselves whether they want to match or mix and I will only have my own socks to think of. I should have thought of this before but I’m so used to doing it all that I forget that little kids have grown up and can do this matching for themselves… I prefer never to waste time thinking about household chores but in this case it seems to be paying off. So, thanks for getting me thinking. 🙂

            I’m the same re: time spent on thinking about chores — except if I can find some rationale for eliminating or reducing them.

            Although I did read a book on interior decoration last week. Which, UCH!

  3. my brothers had one for at least 10 years as it helps with his dust allergy, if i had clearer floors i could be tempted lol
    Wall-E is one of my most favourite films, it’s so beautiful and has a very important message for mankind! not that we listen…

    1. We do need to make sure we pick stuff up off the floor better, especially in the section near our back garden, where bags and shoes often get dumped by the kids.
      Yes, I love the Wall-E movie too. 🙂

  4. Incredible. the future is here! Enjoy your free time. My son liked the Tellytubbies (when he was small) . I loved the Noo-oo and bought him a toy, although I’m not sure he particularly liked the character.

  5. Congrats to you Noo-Noo.
    I bought my mum one of those and my sister got one after that and both are very happy. Only Sam doesn’t like these round things that seem to try to attack him, but he got over the worst fear and tolerates it now 🙂
