The same FreeTime Unlimited account can be used for other Amazon products. It also costs $69.99 compared to the standard Echo Dot's $49.99 price tag, however, right now both prices have been reduced by $20.

"At Amazon, we try to make families' lives easier every day - whether that's by delivering diapers and groceries in a pinch, helping find that flawless Halloween costume, or creating family-friendly experiences on Amazon devices", the company wrote in a blog post.

The new Echo Dots Kids Edition is therefore 70% louder than last year's model. "We're thrilled to bring that experience to kids and families alike with the all-new Echo Dot Kids Edition". (The older version comes in red, blue and green).

As Engadget reports, the Kids Edition is very much like the standard Echo Dot, but with a few key modifications to differentiate it and make it a better speaker for kids.

Amazon updated its Echo Dot speaker back in 2018, so it's no surprise that the tech company chose to revamp its original Echo Dot Kids Edition with a next-gen device as well. If that's the case, you'll see a marked improvement in sound quality. This week, Amazon is refreshing the hardware with an All-New Echo Dot Kids smart speaker announcement. These will help you (alongside your kid, presumably) easily create kid-friendly Alexa skills. With Blueprints, parents and kids can "build an interactive adventure story" from an existing template and more.

Amidst concerns about Alexa storing recordings, you may be anxious about your child's privacy. According to Amazon, Blueprint skills will only be available on devices registered to the parents account. You can also delete any recordings, including your child's, in the Alexa app.
