After your first box ships, you’ll receive an email with the code and instructions needed to purchase the 99-cent Dot.Speaking of which, the Kids Edition is more than just a Dot with a colorful color (though it is that: You can choose from red, green and blue). You also get one year of FreeTime Unlimited (an $83 value), which affords access to kid-friendly books, audiobooks, movies, apps and more. Amazon covers the unit with a 2-year warranty as well.As for Book Box, it comes with either four board books (for the baby set) or two hardcovers.
