I love Dyson...

I love my Dyson vacuum.
It starred in a blog post of mine three years ago.....

It is worth every penny. And that was the consensus amongst most of the moms on a web forum I was on the other day. No one had a bad thing to say about them. So I love my vacuum, what could be better than that? I'll tell you what? Knowing what an awesome company it comes from.

Today my son came home from preschool with a toy Dyson (pictured above) and a note that explained why. His preschool teacher sent a letter to Dyson requesting a catalog for the kids to look at... one of the kids had been eyeing their new Dyson vacuum and she wanted to have something more for him to look at (She does stuff like that. Miles is really into animals so she got special animal books for him at the library.). Anyway, Dyson wrote her back

Dear ______

Thanks so much for contacting Dyson Canada and letting us know about the budding engineer at ______ Nursery School! He sounds like of the the world's nest promising inventors - he's got such a great start at such a young age! Only four!

The James Dyson Foundation (JDF) encourages young people to think differently, make mistakes and invent. We would love it if your students, their parents and their teacher explored our JDF Science World site to discover design heroes, find out how to design things that work and use out resources in the classroom or at home. Here is the link for you and your community to enjoy:

In the meantime, we have a little something for this budding inventor and his classmates coming your way!

Best Wishes. ____________

And Miles was lucky enough to be one of those classmates. We checked out the website & it is cool. I pulled it up on the iPad and Miles has been playing since we got home, there's a pretty cool game that he caught onto quickly (which works out well for Molly since she wanted to her get hands on the toy vacuum).

Thanks Dyson. It's so freakin' (yep, I said freakin') cool when a company invests in it's youth. Maybe someday Miles will invent a new vacuum for Dyson, or maybe he will just be the proud owner of one, like we are.
