This month it's all about gifting smarter. To help prep for our annual gift guides, I popped into the Amazon Device preview in NYC. I got to play with all the latest technology from Amazon. Touching and testing helped me pick the best Amazon Devices to give for gifts this holiday season.
New Amazon Devices for Kids
Echo Glow is a companion device for your Echo Kids ($39.99) that lets kids add color and fun lighting tp their room. All you have to do is ask Alexa for a wake-up light to make school mornings a little more fun. I also love the campfire setting for nighttime snuggles.
Kindle Kids Edition is an updated reading experience designed just for kids. It's not like other screen-time, this can be managed.
Amazon FreeTime Unlimited is available on Kindle. You get kid-friendly content with parental controls that let parents feel they are staying on top of the screen time. FreeTime give kids unlimited access to over a thousand e-books.
I love that it now comes with some fun kid-friendly covers. There's also a two-year warranty.
