KidKraft Amazon Alexa 2-in-1 Kitchen & Market
Review date: 11/02/2020
Looking to teach your five year old about shopping and cooking at a very young age? Who better to trust than Amazon's Alexa? (We can actually think of a whole bunch of better options to teach young kids about shopping than Amazon's Alexa, but roll with us here.) KidKraft has paired up with Amazon's Alexa for this $300 wooden kitchen and market set complete with self-checkout, working smart scanner, fridge, freezer, and even a smart faucet. Plop an Alexa smart speaker (sold seperately) in the middle of the kitchen and that, along with a bunch of RFID sensors, will play with your kids. We'll give them this, potentially training kids at an early age to buy stuff (while hanging out with Alexa) sure feels like a solid business model. We're pretty worried about the privacy implications of this though.
