The kid-friendly gadget for video chatting, playing games and reading books has left its invitation-only buying period.

The Amazon Glow, the video chat device with a built-in projector for games and books, is now available to the wider public.
The $300 Glow, which Amazon launched in a limited early-access period in 2021, is designed for video chatting, but it also includes an ingenious downward-facing projector that allows kids to simultaneously play games and read books on a table or countertop while talking with family members or friends. It’s designed for kids ages 3 to 9.
Alongside the wide release of the Glow, Amazon announced a slew of new features, including new games and books, new play modes, tunable projector brightness and expanded Glow app compatibility — friends and family chatting with the Glow device don’t need their own unit.
The Amazon Glow is available now for $300 — or with included tangram toys for $330. (It’s not currently available in the UK or Australia; $300 would convert to about £230 or AU$400.)
CNET’s Bridget Carey and her daughter Olivia tried out the Glow last year, and you can see their experience in the video below.
