I know that, at our house, we have invited our robot overlords in for tea, so we have plenty of funny stories about the things that happened when our toddlers and preschoolers began trying to ask Alexa for things themselves.

If you have a similar device, I bet you have stories, too – and I also know you’re going to love these 13 hilarious instances other people are sharing below!

13. It’s almost like they’re messing with you.

10. They’re not wrong.

About either observation, really.

9. This is a classic own.

They had to be at least a little bit proud.

8. I never thought of this.

It’s actually brilliant.

7. It’s nice to have a co-parent.

Even if she can’t have a drink with you after the kids go to bed.

At least they tried to do what you said.

5. When you put it that way…

Maybe we all need to rethink a few things.

4. It’s a learned behavior.

Alexa has her limits too, apparently.

3. A support system is key.

And she knows how to do math.

2. At least they didn’t ask you.


1. Someone is missing an opportunity here.

Or living a better life than I am.

Kids are hilarious, and mix them with robots? Forget about it!
