    Echo dot

    Is the Amazon echo dot suitable as a gift for a 12 year old?

    Of course they are intelligent enough to interact with it- just how useful they may find it is a different question

    my 8 year old granddaughter loves mine and wants one for Xmas (probably so it can do her homework)

    quite limited attention and options for them to be honest.
    its better suited to communal areas rather than a kids bedroom where it will probably end up

    I think an Android box would be better, limited use unless you have an automated house, nothing that Siri/Google Now can't do otherwise.

    no unless they want to ask whether they need an umbrella or to turn on the light.

    ​no they can do adventure games on them too.
    the magic door is great fun .
    plus it can play any music even if you don't know the title just say who's in it or a line and it will find it.
    I think they are great and my kids love it

    ​they really become like your new best friend and so all sorts of stuff for you.
    ask it the weather..news...play games.
    it's getting better daily as they add new stuff.
    I use mine also to turn lights on and off . the heating. etc.
    you will love it .
    you do need broadband though

    Brill thanks had a peek at them in Currys today. Still holding out for an offer somewhere but may have to just get it full price! X

    why all the vote downs, a simple question by OP and got the exact answers she needed but odd one or two like to mark the answer down, strange.

    I got mine for £29.99 in the black friday deal. Obviously too late now but if you have amazon prime now there is a £10 off voucher which takes it to just under £40.

    CODE IS PRIMENOW10 and remove the £2 tip
