They grow up with smartphones, tablets, smart speakers, smart home devices, and more, with technology all around them.

Amazon is introducing a new feature which aims to encourage children to talk to Alexa politely.

Amazon has launched a new voice assistant device - Echo Dot Kids Edition - for $79.99.

Amazon is also throwing in a free year of FreeTime Unlimited, which normally costs $2.99, granting access to more than 300 kid-friendly TV shows, Audible books, ad-free radio stations, playlists, and more.

Amazon FreeTime on Alexa includes a new set of parent controls and family-focused features such as explicit song filtering, bedtime limits, education Q&A, household communications, positive reinforcement for using the word "please" and disabled voice purchasing - all for free.

Kids can ask Alexa questions about science, math, spelling, definitions, or any other topic that piques their curiosity.

The researchers were able to create a harmless-seeming Alexa Skill that would actively record long after most Skills shut down to preserve people's privacy. Since Alexa is built in the cloud and always getting smarter, she'll continue to learn new information every day. "We can't wait for parents and kids to try this out".

FreeTime Unlimited on Alexa takes the best of Amazon's existing all-in-one FreeTime Unlimited subscription and adds Alexa-specific content such as Audible books, kid-friendly premium skills, and more.

Gone are the days of shouting up the stairs for the kids to come down to dinner.

Kids can start the day with alarms featuring their favorite characters from Disney, Nickelodeon, and more.
