    Did they name the vacuum Kirby because of the pink guy and he does a lot sucking as I've seen in the past.

    We had an old Kirby. Very good vacuum. If you need one and can afford it, go for it.

    Thats waht we have now, we have the animal dyson. And when they went over where I ran my dyson they pulled up alot of dirt. Wasnt sure if this is something they have built into there sweeper to make it look that way, or if it is really that good.

    I have a Kirby Generation 4. I got it at a thrift store for $100 which freeks out all the Kirby store people in my town. Very good vacuum but if I had to pay the full price for one I probably would have not bought it. It's well built though. I use the blower part to blow the dust out of peoples computers I work on. It's the best device I have ever used for that purpose!

    I have a Miele Red Star. Very nicely built, works great. I especially like that fact that for it's power, it's very quiet.

    They're a lot cheaper on eBay (but still very expensive) and you don't have to deal with the salespeople.

    The Kirby people came to my house too. They said "this thing can get out any stain, on any surface". After they cleaned pretty much my entire house they started doing the sales pitch "you can have it for this price...yada yada" then I made them leave.

    So it was worth the free house cleaning...
    I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.
