In a past life I used to be an ice technician, which means I used to drive a Zamboni. I bought this item to remind me of those days. While I have seen others here who have complained about the actual vacuum's performance, I can't speak to that as I did not buy it to clean anything. My one complaint about this item though is it's size. The specs claim that "the Zamboni desk vacuum measures approximately 13-4/5 by 15-4/5 by 12-1/5 inches." In reality the BOX for the item measures 7 1/2 by 4 1/2 by 5 inches, with the actual vacuum smaller than that. Quite a difference! This item is a faithful rendering of a Zamboni, all the way down to the moving board brush under the machine. It is much smaller than advertised though, so if the large size claimed was one reason you chose it, as it was for me, you might want to think again whether or not this is what you want.

Can't afford a full size machine for our hockey coach so this is the next best thing! It is perfect...super cute and actually works vacuuming up his desk! Who doesn't absolutely love the Zamboni Machine? Need to get a couple more of these for gifts...

I bought this for my sister and it arrived in packaging as described. It was about the size you would expect (handheld) and fairly heavy. The vacuum part of it works, but only covers a limited portion, not the width of the toy, so actual vacuuming with it would be tedious. It does look cool, and would be very cool with some themed stickers (favorite hockey team?) to decorate it, as it is a bit bland.

I bought this as a toy for my toddler son and thought I'd also use it to keep my desk cleaner. While my son does enjoy playing with it, it barely picks up any dirt/crumbs off my desk.

Love that it is in Tampa Bay Lightning Colors and is functional. Bought one for me and one for my husband. Great gift idea.

I bought this for my friend's birthday. She loves zambonis, so this was perfect for her. The suction on the vacuum is not great, but the novelty of it is worth the price.

Bought this for the hockey coach, the only bad thing was we had no batteries to try it out right away, other than that it was a huge hit! Great fun gift for hockey lovers

I work at my local Ice Rink. I got this for my boss as a Christmas present. He thought it was awesome. It even matches our Zamboni's color scheme! (Yes, I know it's default.)

My Ex-Art Teacher in the late 1940's taught me and her name was Jean Zamboni - an artist from Owatonna, Minnesota. She was not related to the Zamboni who invented the ice machine - but because of the name they grew to be friends. I found this toy at Amazon and she was thrilled when she received it from me as a gift. My adult son found out I had found the toy and had me get him one, This has been a cherished toy for both my friend and my son. Thank you. Audrey J. Moore
