Julius Air Purifier


Wrote Michael Hsu in this weekend's Wall Street Journal, "Air purifiers as advanced as the MinusA2 tend to look high-tech or institutional—rarely adorable. Thankfully, RabbitAir launched a unit last week featuring Paul Frank's ubiquitous monkey Julius, which means your kids can breathe clean air without feeling like they're in a semiconductor manufacturing plant. Roughly the size of a box fan, the MinusA2's ventless facade and wall-mount option make it as much a canvas as an appliance, yet it doesn't trade performance for cuteness."

"Despite the slim profile, it packs in active-carbon and antibacterial filters as well as a HEPA filter that is like a venus flytrap—it has chemically treated fibers that literally dissolve trapped dust mites and other airborne detritus, according to the manufacturer. And while the MinusA2 has plenty of horsepower (a sensor can automatically crank the fan to turbo when the air is dirty), it also features a 'silent' mode so quiet your baby's breathing will drown it out."
