As a consumer, Amazon Prime Day can feel a bit overwhelming — there's admittedly a lot to sift trough. But if you know the family could benefit from having Alexa in their house — a kid-friendly one at that — then you've smartly waited because the Echo Dot Kids Edition ($60, originally $80) just went on sale. And though it comes in red, green, or blue, it's not just the primary colors that make it suitable for the children.
What differentiates this version from its big sister is parental control. To start, parents get access to a dashboard where they can limit activity, filter explicit songs, and even set a time limit on usage. The Kids Edition also comes with a year of FreeTime Unlimited, which gives the little ones access to educational content, radio stations, and more than 300 Audible books, geared to them. And if you needed another reason to get excited about this iteration of Alexa, here goes: you can use it to call the kids for dinner. Just imagine never having to scream to them from the kitchen again!
