The Amazon Echo lineup has long been a popular pick for making homes a little smarter, and the Echo Dot Kids Edition brings those same smarts to the littlest members of your household. Today, you can snag the Echo Dot Kids Edition for $40 on Amazon, down from a list price of $70 and the lowest we’ve seen it.
This compact smart speaker comes with Alexa built in for convenient voice control. Kids can do everything from controlling other connected devices to asking Alexa to answer questions and tell stories hands-free. With one year of included Amazon’s FreeTime service included with your purchase, kids will be able to tap into a whole library of family-friendly content.
The Echo Dot Kids Edition can also bring parents peace of mind. With the connected Parent Dashboard, parents can keep an eye on their kids by setting filters, checking activity, adding skills, setting bedtimes, and more. They can also use the speaker as an intercom with other Echo devices.
While we haven’t tried the Echo Dot Kids Edition, we absolutely adore the standard Echo Dot. The Kids Edition is a popular choice on Amazon too, with 3.9 stars out of 5 across more than 900 user reviews.
