Another video submission query

Hi, the latest rules says "Echo devices should not be referred to or positioned as a toy." in the video.

What does "positioned" as a toy mean? I'm probably going to show my kids using the Skill on the Echo; it'll be just up on the kitchen counter i.e. not amongst other toys, but they will be "playing" with it, so to speak.

Thanks,
Andy

    Hey Andy,

    You can build and demo your skill using the Echo device as you normally would using voice interactions. Positioning it as a toy would be throwing it around or treating the actual device like a toy. That is not allowed. Your skill needs to be able to function properly without moving around, retrofitting, or tossing the device.

    Does that help?

    Best,
    Stefanie
