Echo Dot Kids

The Echo Dot Kids is a smart speaker with Alexa.

Alexa is a digital assistant that can be voice controlled by asking simple questions.

Kids can ask Alexa to play music, read a bedtime story, get help with their homework and more. Stream songs from Amazon Music, Apple Music, Spotify and more.

Alexa will automatically give kid-friendly responses and filter songs with explicit lyrics. You can also set volume and daily time limits, and review activities using the Amazon Parent Dashboard.

Kids can help take charge of their routines with Alexa by setting their own alarms, turning off compatible smart lights and calling parent-approved friends and family.
