Alexa, why should adults get to hog all the fun when it comes to smart speakers?
Meet the Echo Dot Kids Edition, a virtual assistant that’s designed for younger ears. You might have seen it featured on Mashable earlier this spring, but since it’s on sale for 50% off once again — its lowest price ever — we figured it’s worth a quick revisit.
This update to Amazon’s hands-free, voice-controlled gadget functions just like the classic Echo Dot, only its content is exclusively kid-friendly. Just by saying Alexa’s name, your child(ren) can have her play their favorite music, read stories via Audible, answer questions, conduct internet searches, tell jokes, and more.
As a parent, you’ll be able to control the Echo Dot Kids Edition from afar using just your smartphone. On the Amazon Parent Dashboard, you can set alarms, enforce bedtime limits, review activities, pause Alexa, and automatically filter out explicit songs from Amazon Music, Apple Music, and Spotify. With its age-appropriate settings, your kiddos won’t hear anything they shouldn’t.
Each Echo Dot Kids Edition comes with a bonus one-year subscription to FreeTime Unlimited, which features access to thousands of Audible books; ad-free radio stations and playlists; and educational games and stories via Disney, Nickelodeon, and National Geographic.
Your purchase also includes a colorful case and a two-year worry-free guarantee, so if your kid’s Echo Dot is accidentally broken, you can return it and have it replaced for free.
Get an Echo Dot Kids Edition for just $34.99 — half off its usual price of $69.99.
