Amazon's Alexa Now Has A Kid Friendly Version!

Amazon Echo For Kids!

Amazon Alexa or “smart speakers” are in 39-million homes and the newest version of the voice assistant, the Echo Dot Kids Edition, was designed to entertain and educate your little ones with music, answering questions, telling jokes and telling stories.

The new kid-friendly Alexa will even promote politeness by encouraging kiddos to say “please” and “thank you.” This version has basically the same software as other Dots, but the kid one comes in three colors - red, green, blue, and it’s got a durable case, just in case.

Amazon’s Echo Dot for Kids may just be a regular Dot with a colorful case, but it does have one killer feature: Amazon gives parents a two year guarantee that they’ll replace the smart assistant if their child somehow manages to break it. That might be worth the $80 price tag alone. #amazonecho #alexa #echodot #smartassistant

But possibly the greatest selling point for parents is that this device won’t let a kid shop with their voice or place phone calls outside the house. Kids might not appreciate that feature, but moms and dads will, especially any who have had to cancel a credit card order for 16 dollhouses their kid ordered by mistake.

Parents also have control over the Dot, so they can schedule when it’s locked, set daily limits, and review every single request on an “Amazon Parent Dashboard” app, so they’ll know exactly how the children are using their technology. And voice-operated technology could mean less screen time for kids, which we can all probably agree would be a good thing.
