Echo Dot Kids Edition
$79.99
The Good

Alexa tells great jokes (for kids) • Voice-driven kids games are entertaining • Works just like a regular Echo Dot

The Bad

Teaching manners not effective for Echo veterans • Value of bundle is questionable

The Bottom Line

Alexa is quite good at catering to an underage audience in the Echo Dot Kids Edition, but since you can enable FreeTime for Alexa on any Echo Dot, there’s not much reason to buy this bundle.
