The company often launches a slew of Alexa-powered products at its event in the fall, and we figured Amazon would wait until then this year.
Like all the other Kids Edition devices, Amazon is also offering a 2-year worry-free guarantee on this, which means if your kid is able to break it, Amazon will replace it for free.
"At Amazon, we try to make families' lives easier every day - whether that's by delivering diapers and groceries in a pinch, helping find that ideal Halloween costume, or creating family-friendly experiences on Amazon devices", the company wrote in a blog post. "We're thrilled to bring that experience to kids and families alike with the all-new Echo Dot Kids Edition".
Customers of mobile operator Vodafone UK have just become some of the first in the world to be able to make and receive calls via Amazon Echo (Alexa) smart speaker devices from any of their contacts via their existing mobile phone plan, which is thanks to their new OneNumber feature (free for all Red pay monthly customers). This summer, they're really pushing it: A new, rainbow Echo Dot Kids Edition has just debuted to match the mesh design of the 3rd generation Echo Dot. Both the tablet and the Dot come with a one-year Amazon FreeTime Unlimited subscription, offering access to a universe of kids' TV shows, games, and educational apps from Disney, National Geographic, and more. If that's the case, you'll see a marked improvement in sound quality.
Set to retail at $69.99 when it releases on June 26, you can save $20 and pre-order the new Echo Dot Kids Edition for $49.99. The best part is Alexa will now reward kids for saying please. You can have your child be the star of the tale or ask Alexa for your fortune. You can also delete any recordings, including your child's, in the Alexa app.
