Paladone Henry Car Bin
Advantages: Fun/Novel/Useful/Wipe Clean/Good Size/Reasonably priced
Anybody that knows me knows that I am hugely untidy, so I wasn't too surprised when I received a BIN for christmas last year! I hadn't seen the Henry Car Bin before and it gave me quite a giggle when I opened it. The Henry Car Bin is designed to look like a Henry hoover and is designed for use in the car.
* What is a 'Henry'? *
I'm sure everybody knows, but for those who don't - Henry is a vacuum cleaner by British cleaning and maintenance equipment company Numatic. The first Henry hit the shelves in 1980 and has been a great success ever since with over 7 million being produced worldwide. Henry's have been known to be reliable and effective hoovers that are often used in workplaces, as well as homes. I have had my Henry for a good few years and he's still going strong!
Henry hoovers are red and black coloured and are best known for their smiley faces which are printed on the front of them (with the hose for a nose). Henry also has a pink girlfriend called Hetty!
* Look *
The bin is cylinder shaped and mainly red in colour. It has the unmistakable happy Henry face printed on the front and 'Henry' written near the top of the bin.
It also has velcro straps on the top which can be used to attach the bin to the back of the front seat headrests - very handy.
* Size *
The bin is about 11 inches tall and 8 inches in diameter, which is quite small for a regular bin but a good size for a car bin - you wouldn't want it any bulkier for use in the car.
The bin is also collapsible - just squash it down and attach the straps to the velco tabs on the bottom of the bin to avoid it popping open. It's small enough to store under seats and in the glove box etc.
* Price & Availability *
My Henry Car Bin is from Marks & Spencer, but they are also available at many other retailers including Amazon.co.uk, Play.com, IWantOneOfThose.com and GettingPersonal.co.uk. Prices generally vary between £5.00 - £8.00. A very reasonable price in my opinion. It also comes packaged flat and in a box.
* Overall *
Henry is a full time passenger in my car, the only time he leaves is when I take him indoors to empty him (which is about once a week). He looks cute and I felt like he was a particularly appropriate gift as I already have a full sized Henry hoover and a Henry desktop cleaner! He is quite often attached the back of the seat that my daughter sits behind, as she is always eating in the car! The bin is made from a waterproof material and is easy to wipe clean, so sticky lollies and soggy bananas are not a problem. As I've already mentioned the size of the bin is just right - not huge, but big enough to fit plenty inside. The bin also seems durable as I've been using the it regularly for a year now and have had no problems with it.
If your car is a mess and you're a fan of Henry then I definitely recommend the Henry Car Bin to you! As Christmas is coming up I'd say the Henry Car Bin would also make a good stocking filler/secret santa present as it is fun, novel (but also useful) and reasonably priced.
Summary: Fun and useful!
