You don’t have to purchase the Echo Dot Kids version for your family, although I’m really happy we decided to have this in our home for the kids to use. It comes with a year of FreeTime Unlimited built in plus other kid safe features to give parents peace of mind. You can also get 3 of the Dot Kids for under $100! The Echo Dots are also a great price right now- you just have to decide which you’d like at your house. Learn more about the differences between Echo products at Amazon.
Don’t forget accessories- if your kids each have their own Echo Dot, let them personalize it (and protect it) to match their style! There are a lot of Echo Dot skins available to suit any color scheme or interest- even unicorns and mermaids!
