Theme details

Vacuum cleaners - Especially those from the Numatic range ie, Henry, Hetty, George, Charles etc

Child Interests

Connor loves vacuum cleaners especially any from the brand Numatic. Such as Henry, Hetty, George, Charles etc.
His favourite colour is red.


At around 18months we noticed Connor was different from other children his age. He didn’t play with toys in the usual way, he would even tip his buggy over to spin the wheels and follow Henry the Hoover around. His speech was delayed and growing up he struggled following any demands.
He has experienced school exclusions and is still to this day misunderstood. He has extremely high levels of anxiety around every day demands.
He has a passion for vacuum cleaners and all things electrical and he enjoys fixing things and taking them apart to find out how they work.
