So have a total of 3 Echo Dot's at my house. I have each hooked up to an external speaker and my kids love talking to Alexa. So I got a Eufy Genie and gave it to my girlfriend since her 8 year old has been asking for "Alexa" for a while. So let me tell you, once this kid got the Genie setup in her house she lost her mind and has been talking to Alexa non-stop. She asks the funniest question. She plays endless music on it now and also she learned the simon says command and now according to Alexa, her mom "is not the boss of her" anymore. I have to say it's a fun gadget. My next step is to get them some smart lights for the house. I think they will dig that.
