More Amazon tech? Oh yes! Amazon recently announced the arrival of their latest Alexa product, the Echo Dot Kids Edition. Kids, as well as parents, can be tough customers to please, especially when it comes to how they play. So, do you think this new smart speaker will be family approved? Let’s check it out!

A Look into the Echo Dot Kids Edition

This new piece of tech isn’t straying too far from its roots. While parental controls and warranties have been added, it still does a smart speaker’s job. However, there are notable differences. Here, Amazon shares the kid-friendly aspects of the speaker:

Now Alexa is a kid-friendly DJ, comedian, and storyteller — and she’s always getting smarter. Just ask and Alexa will play music, answer questions, read stories, tell jokes, and more — all with younger ears in mind.

It’s All About the Aesthetic

The aesthetics, durability, and warranties of the product are being advertised on Amazon’s site. You can get the Echo in three colors: blue, green, and red. Never mind a sleek design, it’s time to get fun. Along with the snazzy colors, the speaker is said to have a “kid-friendly case”. A durable case is every parent’s dream. Luckily, that’s not the only safety component. Amazon is offering a 2-year warranty, too.

Up to $109 in savings on Echo Dot (Black), 1 year of Amazon FreeTime Unlimited, and a kid-friendly case, plus a 2-year worry-free guarantee—if they break it, return it and we’ll replace it for free

The parental controls of this speaker are to be expected, for a kid-friendly device. The Amazon Parent Dashboard will allow users to set time limits, pause Alexa, as well as review the activity. The Echo Dot Kids Edition has a lot of features for the youngsters, as well as for the parents. Hopefully, the speaker won’t begin randomly laughing while your kids are trying to sleep. I doubt it will have an anti-nightmare setting.

This new Echo Dot has its fair share of desirable features for kids. Fun and educational content are available with the 1 year of FreeTime Unlimited. As of now, Amazon is selling the Echo Dot Kids Edition for $79.99. You can but it here:
