You can now turn an Echo Dot (4th gen) into a Baby Yoda
In honor of Star Wars Day, OtterBox has released a new prop for the Amazon Echo Dot – one that turns it into The Mandalorian’s Grogu.
the Amazon Echo Dot (4th generation) gets a Mandalorianthemed makeover, with OtterBox launching a new accessory that turns the smart speaker into Grogu – better known as Baby Yoda. This news arrives just in time for Star Wars Day, giving Star Wars fans another addition to add to their collection.
Amazon launched the Echo Dot (4th gen) in September 2020, and overall it’s one of the best cheap smart speakers you can buy. It has surprisingly good audio quality, takes up hardly any space, and has all of the great Alexa features that people have relied on over the years. It also features a radically new design from previous generations, abandoning the old hockey puck shape for a circular aesthetic. Add that with three color options and a retail price of $ 50, and the Echo Dot (4th gen) is hard to ignore.
As good as the Echo Dot looks on its own, that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for improvement. Looking to give the Echo Dot a little flair in honor of everyone’s favorite Star Wars vacation, OtterBox announced a support on the theme of Grogu for the speaker. Much like Grogu / Baby Yoda himself from The Mandalorian, the stand features large green ears and a tan base to mimic Grogu’s dresses. OtterBox previously released the same support for the Echo Dot (3rd gen), but now that the 4th gen model is available, owners of the newer Echo Dot can have fun as well.
Baby Yoda Echo Dot (4th gen) support costs $ 25
For anyone interested in buying the stand for themselves, pre-orders are open now on Amazon. OtterBox says shipping won’t start until June 10, but buyers can go ahead and secure their order now to make sure they’re among the first to get it. The stand costs $ 24.95 in the US, making it a pretty affordable pickup.
While a mount like this won’t improve or change the functionality of the Echo Dot (4th gen), it’s a really interesting way to make it look more unique than it already has. The circular shape of the Echo Dot looks good enough, but it doesn’t have much character either. This OtterBox support completely fixes that, and that without costing too much. It might not be the Star Wars accessory for everyone, but for those who are interested, it’s hard to ignore.
