Amazon’s Echo Dot series of smart speakers and smart home assistants are small but mighty. They work with Alexa, of course, and basically let you run your life and your home from one tiny little gadget. We celebrate when we see Amazon Echo Dot deals, especially the Echo Dot 3rd gen model and the Echo Dot for kids. The kind of can’t-miss sale that used to only happen during this sales behemoth we now call Cyber Week. Or Cyber Month, really.

Amazon Echo Dot Deals

My kid has the Echo Dot for kids and he’s not happy because it enables me to control what he listens to, whom he calls, and what he does. Meaning, it does its job, and does it well. It gives kids access to kid-friendly content, and lets parents set daily time limits and review activity.

It’s the little things, quite literally. The Echo Dot third gen shows you the time on an LED display. Plus the temperature. Things you never thought you needed, until you had them. It’s tiny enough for your nightstand and is the perfect alarm, preventing you from checking your phone at night. You voice-control your music. You already know the original Echo Dot answers the weirdest questions kids have and farts on command. Plus explains what flatulence is. And you can voice control your smart home.

This model also has superior privacy controls, which is a boon for parents whose kids use it for everything.
