A long time ago in this galaxy, May the Fourth was just a pun that Star Wars fans would use to joke around. Now, it’s a global phenomenon that’s celebrated yearly with companies around the world practically falling over themselves with deals, offers, and fun little treats.
This year, even Alexa’s going to be getting into the fun. If you’re subscribed to Amazon Kids Plus, your children will have the opportunity to discover some fun Star Wars easter eggs. On May 4, Alexa will play a Star Wars-themed response whenever your kids say “Alexa, happy Star Wars Day” or “Alexa, May the Fourth be with you”. Neat, isn’t it? You can also add three Star Wars dedicated skills on Amazon Kids Plus: Star Wars: C-3PO Translates!, Star Wars Sound Journeys, and Star Wars: Choose Your Destiny.

Tauntaun Sleeping Bag For $50
