Wow. This...appalls me. It makes me want to clean. What is it with items that require work and being able to ride them. Like the lawnmower, you can now ride one, i mean whats next the riding mop? I love the concept of your children helping out in the cleaning. I know for sure that as a kid I would love to ride one of these things, in fact if you just turned it on I would ride it everywhere and the parents wouldn't even have to clean. A great concept, I personally would like to own one, but i don't really have money that I can just blow away right now. Awesome Vacuum, I'm sure kids will love to clean in the future...at least vacuum.
