As families ease back into school routines, Alexa-enabled devices can help them tackle the school year. Here are 7 Amazon devices that come with features that help keep the focus on education and reading, as well as entertainment and games.

Using the Learn First feature in Amazon Kids on Fire Kids tablets (Fire Kids Pro, ages 6-12 and Fire HD 10 Kids tablet, ages 3-7), parents can block access to games and cartoons until after educational goals are met.

Fire HD 8 Kids Pro Tablet ($139.99)

The all-new Fire Kids Pro reimagines the tablet experience for kids ages 6-12 with features that empower them to independently explore and expand age-appropriate content. The new tablet features a digital store where kids can request apps for parent’s approvals, a new Amazon Kids web browser with built-in controls, new ways to stay connected with voice and video calls and a new music row, fun case and color options and more.

Fire HD 10 Kids ($199.99)

The next-generation Fire HD 10 Kids made for ages 3-7 includes the Fire HD 10 tablet with a 10.1’ HD display, 32GB storage, and a 5MP rear-facing camera. It also comes bundled with a kid proof case in new, more colorful designs plus a kickstand that doubles as a handle, a year of Amazon Kids+, and a two-year worry-free guarantee.

Kindle Kids Edition ($109.99)

Kindle Kids is purpose-built for reading, with a black & white glare-free display and weeks of battery life. It performs differently than a tablet, because it’s geared for reading books – no games, ads or videos means zero distractions. With the included year of Amazon Kids+, kids can explore popular titles and series. Amazon Kids+ includes the complete Harry Potter series, and the first book from other popular series such as Artemis Fowl. Parents can purchase additional titles from the Kindle Store.

Echo Glow ($29.99)

Echo Glow is a smart lamp for kids and can be paired with any compatible Alexa device to control color and brightness with your voice. Echo Glow makes family routines colorful by creating lighting cues to assist with counting down to dinnertime or setting a reading timer.

Echo Dot Kids ($54.99)

Echo Dot Kids is packed with skills and features that help kids learn and grow every day. When they're feeling curious, they can ask Alexa questions. If they're stuck on their homework, Alexa can help. They can even set an alarm that wakes them up to the voice of their favorite character. It's exciting for them—and easy for you.

Echo Show 5

This Echo Show 5 offers all the things parents love about Alexa – parental controls, curated content, a worry-free guarantee, plus a colorful new design. Kids can easily personalize the home screen of their device with colorful, kid-friendly clock themes; ask Alexa for homework help; make video calls to pre-approved contacts; and set alarms to wake up to the voice of their favorite characters.

Echo Buds (2nd Gen) ($139.99)

With the all-new Echo Buds featuring Amazon’s custom-designed Active Noise Cancellation, parents and kids can enjoy me time (or homework time) while listening to a playlist or podcast. And, with hands-free access to Alexa, you can easily set reminders, check calendars, or make a call by simply saying, “Alexa, call Mom.”

Echo Auto ($49.99)

With Echo Auto, you can add Alexa to your car, which is ideal for busy morning and evening commutes! It connects to the Alexa app on your phone and plays through your car’s speakers via auxiliary input or your smartphone’s Bluetooth connection. Through voice control, you can stream from Audible, Amazon Music, Apple Music, Spotify, SiriusXM, and radio stations with TuneIn and iHeartRadio. Or, use your voice to play music, check the news, make calls, add to your to do-list, set reminders, pay for gas, and more.
