Amazon just announced that from March 12 through 26, when you sign up for a Prime Book Box subscription you can also receive an Echo Dot Kids Edition for just $0.99. The Echo Dot alone costs $34, so this is a solid deal.
Prime Book Box is a subscription that delivers hand-picked children’s books every 1, 2, or 3 months. Every delivery is filled with adventures! Each box contains two hardcover books or four board books to help kids discover new favorites that inspire a love of reading.
With Echo Dot Kids Edition, Alexa is a kid-friendly DJ, comedian, and storyteller. Just ask and Alexa will play music, answer questions, read stories, tell jokes, and more — all with younger ears in mind. This includes one year of FreeTime Unlimited, which gives kids access to thousands of hours of fun and educational content, including ad-free radio stations and playlists, over 1,000 Audible books, and a growing list of kids skills.
