Amazon's Echo Glow smart lamp for kids is back down to its best ever price

Amazon's recently-released Echo Glow Smart Lamp offers a fun way to get kids ready on time for just about any situation, and today it's down to $24.99 for a limited time.

With the Echo Glow, you can use Alexa to set a timer and watch it switch colors as it counts down. It's a very visual way for your children to keep an eye on the time even if they don't know how to read a clock yet, and today's $5 discount is only the second time savings have been offered on the device since its release last September. It's also a match for its best price to date.

This smart lamp for kids pairs with any compatible Alexa device for voice control and is a fun way to set timers, from letting them know when dinner is ready, setting a reading timer, or getting them prepared for bedtime!

The Echo Glow can be paired with any compatible Alexa device so you can begin voice controlling it. When it's not set up on a timer, you can ask Alexa to turn it to a specific color, to make it dimmer or brighter, or to change modes. It was designed for kids to use too, and they'll have a blast asking Alexa to do their bidding. You might just want to think about including an Echo Dot Kids Edition smart speaker with the purchase. Now's a perfect time to pick one up too as they're also on sale for a limited time.

If you don't want to use Alexa, you can also control the Echo Glow by simply tapping it. It's also helpful to use as a wake-up light to make sure your children don't oversleep. To learn more about the Echo Glow smart lamp, you should take a look at this Echo Glow overview.
