Amazon just rolled out several new kids skills for the Echo Dot Kids Edition. These new additions include the new Disney Plot Twist Alexa game that will have your kids in stitches.

TechCrunch describes the new Disney-themed skill as Mad Libs: Disney Edition. Just like traditional Mad Libs, players can call out specific words and phrases to be added to an adventure story which is then narrated back to the kids by popular Disney characters like Anna or Olaf from Frozen.

This new skill will be exclusive to the Echo Dot Kids Edition, which means you’ll have to pony up $70 for the latest Echo Dot version if you want to play.

In addition to the new Disney Plot Twist game, new Alexa skills just added include Hotel Transylvania and Pac-Man-themed interactive stories. Amazon has also released a “Sleeping Sounds” skill for bedtime.

The new calming bedtime skill will be different from the one that already exists in that it is created specifically for kids. It will play 42 different soothing sounds to help lull kids to sleep, including baby favorite white noise-style sounds like cars and vacuums, that so many parents rely on to get their infants to sleep.
