Amazon Glow, which is also priced at $250 and coming later this year, is a video calling device built for kids. It includes dedicated 8” display for video calls and a 19” touch-sensitive, projected space for reading stories, playing games and creating art.
“Glow brings an entirely new level of fun that lets kids be kids and welcomes grown-ups into an exciting new way to connect and bond, even when they’re far away,” said Joerg Tewes, general manager at Amazon Glow, in a statement. “We’ve created an unbreakable, supersized, projected surface like no other, fusing digital and physical fun that excites kids and delights grown-ups with all they can do together.”
Glow comes with one year of Amazon Kids+ that provides access to thousands of children’s books to read; games like Chess, Checkers, Go Fish and Memory Match; and an art app including digital pencils, crayons, paint brushes, spray paint or stickers, all for use on the virtual projected space.
