Amazon Glow

Amazon Glow is now available for all customers in the U.S., arriving with a growing library of Amazon Kids+ games, visual arts activities, books, and immersive features that add magic to video calls and help build rich family connections.

The Glow experience, powered by Amazon Kids+ activities, combines elements of a game system, a children’s library, and an arts-and-crafts center with video chat and an interactive projected space.

The result creates a new way for kids and remote loved ones to have fun enjoying the same content at the same time.

Glow is Amazon’s first device built specifically for kids from the ground up. During video calls on Glow, kids connect with pre-approved loved ones that parents invite to the experience, and see them on a built-in 8” HD touchscreen display. In turn, Glow’s front-facing camera ensures those using the free Glow app on a mobile device can see and interact with the little ones in their lives. Using Glow’s large, 19.2” projected touchscreen, kids play games, read stories, create art, scan physical objects, and learn together simultaneously with remote loved ones. With this unique combination of features, Glow Time does what a traditional video call on a mobile device simply can’t do.


Nearly 100 games and visual arts activities – Through Amazon Kids+, Glow now offers nearly double the number of games and many more visual arts activities since the device debuted. The fun includes classic games like Chess, Checkers, and Go Fish, as well as new additions like Whac-A-Mole, Chip Drop, Cake Monsters, and Rocket Racers. Ready to get creative? There are dozens of visual arts activities to choose from too.

Thousands of books – From beautifully illustrated picture books to imaginative chapter books and Animated Storybooks, reading Amazon Kids+ books on Glow includes rainbow pointers, word bubbles, and animated page turns enhancing reading adventures.

New play options – Kids can enjoy games and activities when connected on video calls with remote loved ones or sitting side-by-side using the device together with a sibling or parent.
