    Default Design faults

    My children are defective. I'm writing a letter to see if I can send them back and get some new features added. Maybe if anyone else needs their kids sent for a service we could send them together as a bulk lot and get a good price. Who's in??

    So far my children have displayed the following behaviours that are counter productive to ease of use.

    The smallest child:
    The more tired it gets, the less it seems to sleep. This causes it to cry a lot, and sleep even less. I'm thinking an 'off' switch could be utilized here

    The largest child:
    Gets dirty very easily, and is very hard to clean. It makes a lot of noise and moves around too much when I do try to clean it, and sometimes I feel that even steel wool and bleach wouldn't do a very good job of cleaning it. Perhaps I could get this child re-done in a Teflon coating, for easier cleaning. And an immobilising function would be good too (i can see this function having a large range of applications in this child)

    Love this I'm in !!!

    Oldest child seems to think & act older than they are has a serious attitude problem an adjustment switch would be great
    Youngest seems to scream & throw tantrums at everything & nothing ,doesn't sleep well anymore & is very clingy a reset function would be great

    Well this applies to both models I received - no off switch!! I thought I had received defective models and though 'hey, you get that', but it seems to be a widespread manufacturing fault.

    Oldest - mine seems to have heavy/hard feet. Constantly going through shoes. Is this a common problem.

    Youngest - needs an inbuilt air freshener. The smell, oh my!

    Please fearless leader, include these in you group complaint.

    While our first child is still on the way, I've noticed in various other models that none of them appear to have a functioning volume control or mute button. If this feature could be included as an optional extra in future models, I'd happily pay more for it.

    My oldest is very difficult to refuel. Maybe a little hatch in the back for me to pour food into.

    Yea', my first hasn't shown up yet, but I've noticed on previous models that I've handled, their ear cavities are just painted on. Perhaps the manufacturers could look into putting real ear holes where they should be.
