Tearing your hair out at bedtime, parents? Amazon Alexa might have a magical solution

There is no denying that reading bedtime stories to your kids is one of the absolute sweetest parts of parenting.

However, let's be honest – there are nights when having some other way of getting your kids to settle down and get ready for sleep would come in super handy, no?

Enter the Amazon Alexa and their incredible Magic Door feature.

Haven't heard f it yet?

You are missing out, mama.

Alexa's Magic Door is basicallly an interactive advcenture, complete with sound effects, characters and riddles, which sees kids (and adults) navigate forests, seas and other enchanted lands, making choices about where to go and what to do.

Sounds good? I know – and it gets better. Along the way, they’ll meet trolls, animals, fairies and other magical creatures.

And before you find yourself thinking 'sure this will go on forever and they'll never go asleep' – the clever folks at Amazon have made each story just 10 minuet long, so no time for kids to loose interest.

If you have an Alexa, here is what you need to do:

1. Activate the skill (either in the app or online)

2. Say "Alexa, open the Magic Door."

3. Now you are good to go.

Technology, guys – making parenting just that little bit easier.
