Many kids have been separated from their loved ones over the past few years due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Now they can reconnect with family thanks to Amazon Glow.
Glow is an interactive projector and video-calling device with which kids can play games, solve puzzles, create art projects, read books, and explore new digital adventures together with their remote loved ones. Glow’s projector creates a 19-inch, touch-sensitive space where kids can take part in many hands-on activities while adults join in the fun from their tablet or smartphone.
Glow comes with a full year of Amazon Kids+ content (Amazon Kids+ subscription required) that includes access to thousands of books so that kids and relatives can turn pages together, highlight words, and feel as if they’re reading side by side, even when they’re apart. Families can also enjoy animated storybooks created by Disney specifically for Glow, featuring fun animations and sounds from some of Disney and Pixar’s most popular films.
Kids can challenge loved ones to games like chess, checkers, Go Fish, and more; create art pieces together with them in real time with dozens of themed prompts (such as Sesame Street); or take part in other interactive drawing activities like tic-tac-toe or Spaceman. Glow blends the physical and digital worlds by scanning physical shapes into digital stickers or jigsaw puzzle pieces.
Families can get this device on Amazon for $299.99. The purchase comes with a 2-year guarantee. Two other purchase options include the Amazon Glow Connection Bundle with Fire HD 10 tablet for $379.99 and the Amazon Glow Learning Bundle with Tangram Bits for $329.98
