And thanks to some hot holiday sales, they are relatively affordable.

Here’s a smattering of sweet deals that will have your children declaring that you’re the best parent around:

The Echo Dot Kids Edition transforms Alexa into a child-friendly virtual companion and entertainer of sorts. Your child can use the Echo to access music, stories, jokes, and more. In fact, there are more than 1,000 audible books for kids, as well as games from National Geographic and Disney. Even better (though your kids might disagree), you can use the device to call your children to the dinner table or alert them that it’s time for bed.
