    I thought others reviews were exaggerating but they weren't. Thing is horrible . Connecting issues almost every time we were gonna use . Simple thing as hearing ocean sound were difficult. Setup for kids edition not clear . Says we have year but 1 month in stating subscription expired and need card. Oh and this is just an echo with fancy case . Kids mode can be activated on any echo

    This is the sweetest invention! We're buying this Echo for a 9 year old girl, for Christmas. It's all she can talk about. It reads stories, tells jokes and many other fun things as described on the box. If your looking for a great gift, boy or girl in the 8 -12 year old range, consider this one. It's on sale at Best Buy for $69.99, but it normal price is $79.99. Either way, you will be the winner with the Echo, for any special occasion.

    Bought this for my 18 month old Grandson. Was actually looking for info on an Amazon Free Time subscription. The subscription is $83, so buying this Dot was a no brainer. Very entertaining, reduces TV time. Several toddler age playlists. Bonus is that the Dot also is backed by Amazon with a 2 year accidental warranty.

    We purchased 2; 1 for son’s room and another for our family room. We love the “drop in” and “announce” features to talk between Dots. My son loves to listen to stories while getting ready in the morning and sleep sounds at night to quickly fall asleep. He also has started using FreeTime to read books on his tablet.

    I bought two kids edition echos for my children aged 3 and 11. This seems to help them settled in their own space. They both use their device for two completely different reasons so I am a very happy parent. My only con is when the device freezes on an application or in the middle of a song

    We bought this for my daughter (6) for Christmas and love it. She listens to it every night and talks to Alexa all the time. She loves that Alexa will sing to her and tells stories and jokes. It’s all kid friendly so I don’t have to worry about Alexa accidentally playing something inappropriate.

    I bought this for my grandchildren (5 and 8-1/2) to have at my house. They LOVE it! They ask the time, the weather, play music, play games, practice Spanish, take quizzes, and all kinds of educational things. It can also connect to the Echo in my office. I highly recommend it!

    The Kids Echo Dot is easy to do and use. Bought it for my 5 year old granddaughter's birthday and after quick setup, she was using it right away, asking it to play songs, tell jokes and read stories. She loves it to turn on her light for her.

    Purchased for my 4yr old to keep in his room without worry of inappropriate content being played on it or having ours taken over by him. He plays music all day, listen a to its jokes, and has it read him stories constantly. Great purchase for kids.

    Bought it for my young nephew -- he seemed to think it was just OK, and still mostly uses his tablet instead of talking to the Dot. Not really sure that kids really have much use for this if they are already used to using other devices.

    He can listen to his music on it, I can communicate with him and he can communicate with me on it. We have normal echos and two echo dots and they’re all used daily. It’s even great to ensure he is woken up every morning for school.

    After owning for months, we don't like it and wouldn't recommend it. The microphone only works if you're talking directly into it and barely that when musoc is playing. Now to navigate warranty processes. Will post update thereafter.

    I was amazed how well the filtering works for G-rated audiences like my 7 year-old triplets. Brings peace of mind that they won't hear anything inappropriate for my conservative parenting.

    Bought this for my son for Christmas and he loves being able to ask questions all of the time and the ability to play music in his room. Soon he will be able to control his lights in the bedroom too

    This product is good for kids and came with a year free of unlimited freetime for kids. The only downside is the plug is not as long as the 3rd gen and is not as loud as the 3rd gen which is good for kids.

    My kiddo loves his dot. I hear him talking to her all the time. I especially love the parental controls and ability to turn her off for certain timeframes each day so he can’t talk to her past bedtime.

    I brought this for son for Christmas. He loves it. It is so easy for him to use. He can plays music on and it’s filtered. It’s reads to him and it also wakes him up in the morning to his favorite song.

    I absolutely love this in my girls room. My daughter learned to operate it pretty quickly. She drops in on me and tells Alexa to play songs for her and her little sister.
