Answer all your kids' questions with the Echo Dot Kids Edition, down to $50

Curious children are the cutest, but they can also be a bit of a handful with their constant questions about why the sky is blue and how whales can float and why is Earth. Now, thanks to the Amazon Echo Dot Kids Edition speaker (opens in new tab), Alexa can start fielding questions for you while always providing 100% kid-friendly answers. This smart speaker is pretty similar to the latest Amazon Echo Dot (opens in new tab), with the main differences being its paint job and parental controls. However, the Kids Edition even comes with a two-year worry-free warranty which states that Amazon will replace the speaker within that time frame if it's damaged, no matter what happens to it. That's a pretty handy guarantee when it comes to something you'll be handing over to tiny troublemakers.

Alexa can read your child stories, play their favorite songs, and answer every single repetitive question they have without a hint of annoyance in her robotic voice. How sweet.

The Echo Dot Kids Edition regularly sells for $69.99, but today you can snag one for only $49.99 (opens in new tab) in either Blue or Rainbow styles. That's only $5 more than it was priced during last month's major Prime Day sale which was only available for Amazon Prime (opens in new tab) members. Unlike that deal, today's offer is available to everyone. An entire year of FreeTime Unlimited is also included with your purchase, which gives your child access to age-appropriate books, music, games, cartoons, audiobooks, and more, some of which can be accessed using the Echo Dot.

Kids will love the Echo Dot, and they'll likely take to it quicker than most adults too. With a few words, they can have Alexa playing their favorite songs, telling them stories, calling approved family members or friends, and more. With built-in parental controls, you can set daily time limits and review your child's activity, and there's also a Microphone Off button to mute the microphone if that's something you're concerned about.

The Amazon Fire 7 Kids Edition tablet is on sale today too, and it'd be a fantastic pick to help your child access the rest of the FreeTime Unlimited content. It includes the same two-year no-questions-asked warranty that the Echo Dot Kids Edition comes with.
