While the world knows the joy of ordering toilet paper by voice command thanks to Amazon’s Alexa, kids have been largely left out of the fun. In the growing field of voice assistants, Mattel is ready to take part. Meet Aristotle– the A.I. powered at-home monitoring device for kids.

It’ll answer your kid’s burning questions, play them music, work as a nightlight, and monitor them while you’re in the other room via the attached camera. You can even customize it for child interaction, such as requiring the word “please” in voice commands.
Parents can also order supplies from trusted retailers on the device, all while restricting purchasing capabilities so the kids can’t get carried away with the credit card.
“Raising kids can be hectic and we saw a need for an IoT (Internet of Things) system that simplifies the complex and dynamic lives of families, while providing them with peace of mind. Our goal with the launch of Aristotle is to provide parents with a platform that simplifies parenting, while helping them nurture, teach, and protect their young ones,” says Jim Mitchell, VP and GM of nabi, Mattel’s tech line for kids.
Aristotle is slated to hit stores this June and retail for about $300.
