This “microfiber hop ball” is one of the funnest in the recent trend for robotic vacuum cleaners in Japan. The Mocoro might sound like a bizarre but sophisticated piece of technology – a colorful “fur” ball that rolls automatically around home cleaning – but actually its beauty lies in its simplicity. All you need to do is clean the furry cover and then let the ball do the rest!
It has an internal timer so this fluffy “space ball” will roll around every 15 minutes picking up dust and dirt in all those annoying nooks and crannies under the furniture. When the floor is clean, just slip off the mop and wash it.
There are three colors: pink, orange or green.
While we can’t vouch for their effectiveness on carpet, these Mocoro balls will be just perfect for wooden and vinyl floors.
