Reviewed in the United States on July 1, 2021
After being on the phone for over an hour and talking to (currently 5 people.....and counting) it seems as if the kids profile doesn't allow you to have Alexa enabled (despite being able to have kid settings for echo devices in the house). This means you can't use the sidekick feature (read with Alexa where Alexa will help kid pronounce words, encourage them, etc.) or ask Alexa to call someone, drop in, etc. which means for a kid who is learning to read or write, they will not be able to fully navigate the feature.

Considering sidekick is something that appears in the parent dashboard, I am very confused as to the purpose of this feature if it is not accessible on an Amazon kids tablet.
