Most of us have several tech pieces we rely on for constant use. A smartphone, wireless earbuds, a laptop, a tablet, a portable speaker, or an e-reader are all standard devices for everyday adult life. Kids, however, have a lot less need for the devices we're always plugged into. But a few exist that can be both fun and educational, and thanks to today's deal at Amazon, you can snag one for less.

As of June 13, the Echo Dot Kids (5th Gen) is on sale for $34.99, down from the usual price of $59.99. That's a 42% discount or a savings of $25.

Designed with kiddo-friendly features, the Echo Dot Kids (5th Gen) comes in two adorable designs - a turquoise owl or a purple dragon. The Alexa-compatible smart speaker can also speak in a pretend owl or dragon voice for an extra dash of fun.

With the Echo Dot Kids, children can ask Alexa to play music, get homework help, or listen to a bedtime story. The deal includes one year of access to Amazon Kids+ which is designed for kids between ages 3 and 12 with access to games, morning routines, educational Alexa skills, and Audible books that are appropriate for kids.

When it comes to parental-controls, Amazon made it easy. Through the Amazon Parent Dashboard, adults can monitor use, set time limits, and review activity. Alexa uses a child-friendly filter, giving kids appropriate replies to questions and filtering out any explicit songs.

The Echo Dot Kids is also designed to help kids learn independence. They can set their own alarms, play their own dance party music, or set reminders for themselves.

For parents looking to start off summer break with an educational treat, snag the Echo Dot Kids for under $35 at Amazon.
