Hooray! Amazon’s helpful virtual assistant, Alexa, has added a whole bunch of new Skills, just for kids. And Kinderling Kids Radio has teamed up with Amazon to make it even easier to listen to your favourite shows!
Alexa for children
If you’re not sure where to start listening or learning with your kids, simply check the Alexa app for recommendations – or ask “Alexa, what are your fun family games?” Amongst the brand-new stable of brilliant Skills designed for parents and kids, you’ll find;
Kinderling Kid News
Let the energy-packed Groovy Ruby update your kids with age-appropriate daily news. Jam-packed with child-friendly facts and awesome games, your kid simply has to say “Alexa, what’s the news?” to join the fun.
This Kinderling-made Skill takes your family on an imaginative, meditative bedtime journey. Mindfulness coach Amy Taylor-Kabbaz will help your child slow down and get ready to drift off. To get started just say “Alexa, open Bedtime Explorers.”
Plus there’s more to explore outside the Kinderling Kids Radio family!
Brilliant stories with sleep-inducing music and gentle narration, this Moshi Monsters-inspired skill makes bedtime lots more snoozy fun. For a Moshi kind of bedtime, just say “Alexa, open Moshi Twilight.”
Beautifully told stories for kids aged five to 12, you can listen to this ace collection by saying “Alexa, open Amazon Storytime.”
Other great Skills on Amazon include SpongeBob Challenge, Lemonade Stand, LEGO® DUPLO® Stories, PAC-MAN™ Stories, Sesame Street – Elmo, Beano, Panda Rescue, Would You Rather for Family, Amazon Math, Tricky Genie, and more. Yowzers!
Just say the word
