Amazon is still discounting the Echo Dot Kids Edition right now. Allowing you to save $20 on this one. That brings the price down to just $39.99. The same price as the Echo Dot with Clock, which is also on sale right now. Which is still it's all-time lowest price.
The Echo Dot Kids Edition is basically the same as the regular Echo Dot, but it's made for kids. So with this fourth-generation Echo Dot, Amazon decided to paint the Echo Dot Kids Edition in two colors – one that looks like a panda and the other looks like a tiger. Making them a bit more kid-friendly. The other major difference is parental controls. You can control what your kids are able to do with Alexa, on their Echo Dot.
Kids can still use their Echo Dot to learn, by asking Alexa questions, setting alarms and even getting help with their homework.
The Echo Dot Kids Edition also comes with a year of Amazon Kids+ (formerly FreeTime Unlimited). This gives kids access to thousands of hours of kid-friendly Audible books, interactive games and educational skills. After the year is up, it'll automatically renew at $2.99/month. Kids+ does also give parents a Dashboard that they can use to control what their kids are doing with Alexa. This includes filtering out explicit songs from streaming music services, setting time limits and much more.
Adding the Echo Dot Kids Edition to your kids room might seem like overkill. But it is a really cool device for kids to have. Especially since kids are naturally inquisitive and they can ask Alexa all of those questions instead of asking you, and annoying you.
