Does anyone else have a toddler, the male, 2014 model? Mine 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. So this model was behaving fairly normally for two years and three months. In the past month though it’s suddenly developed a possible malfunction. The requests for certain things come flying from it hourly, only when I produce these items the model 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? Exasperating much!
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.
For instance the original demand may have been;
“I want dip dip”, however, after have responded to the demand by supplying said “dip dip” it then declares rather loudly that it “didn’t want dip dip!” It’s very difficult to get the settings right!
Providing hours of entertainment for me and my Facebook friends, I can’t fault it! 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.
A pretty fuel efficient model in that most of what I try to get it to consume it is rejected and instead it prefers to run on empty. 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, preferring to have it’s hand held at all times.
Overall I love my male, toddler 2014 model. I am thinking of getting another but maybe hold out for the 2020 toddler model. 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. I shall continue to monitor and document the behaviour for the time being.
Until next time……
