Life with a toddler – the 2014 model 

Does anyone else have a toddler, the male, 2014 model? It came with the early speech development add on already installed. The only reason I enquire is that I’m not sure if mine has a glitch. 

Let me explain in more detail. It was behaving fairly normally for two years and three months. In the past month though it’s suddenly developed a possible malfunction. It requests certain things and then when I produce these items it then proceeds to go into meltdown. It makes a high pitched whining noise and can often just collapse to the floor demanding the opposite to the thing it just requested.

The early speech development add on is useful in these situations in that it helps to determine more quickly, the error which has occurred. But it doesn’t always seem satisfied with my efforts to rectify the error. It can often produce statements which are very contradictory. 

I can’t fault it otherwise. It’s entertaining, the extra cute add on was definitely a wise investment, as was the “heart melting smile” option. It’s very helpful with everyday tasks and responds pretty well to suggestions and commands.

It’s pretty fuel efficient in that most of what I try to put into it is rejected and instead it prefers to run on empty. It’s relatively good at recharging itself through the day and night although sometimes I do have to help it during this process. I’m not sure if it was accidentally installed with the “extra reassurance” add on but it doesn’t seem to want to be left alone when recharging. 

Overall I love my male, toddler 2014 model. I am thinking of getting another but maybe hold out for the 2020 toddler model as I’ve heard that it may sync with my 2014 model better. 

If you can offer any tips to helps with these glitches then please do. I’m sure they are only temporary though so I will continue to monitor and document the behaviour for the time being. 

Until next time……

Ha! Yes, owner of one toddler 2014 model, also male, also with the early speech add on. It too has seemingly developed a similar fault to your own, with the addition of a kicking action that was a bit unexpected. The refusing fuel situation has been replaced with a “eat me out of house and home” bug and now I can’t fill it up. We’re expecting the v3 upgrade any day now so I suppose it might be growing again. At least the waste issues are now nearly under control. 🙂

Yeah, the speech probably helps. Our kids were late talkers and that made the meltdowns much worse. Funny little post though. Thanks for linking to #kcacols and hope to see you again next time.

Also an owner of a male 2014 model!! It had a massive malfunction today. It has previously said sorry mama consistently even when not needed. (With the help of customer service we were able to fix this glitch!) however, today when the sorry Mama plugin was needed it was no where to be found and was instead replaced with an “I can”t” error. It took 45 minutes but eventually the plugins sorted themselves out and it said sorry mama again. I sure hope this isn’t going to be a continuing problem. I’ve got an updated model male 2016 (to complement… Read more »
