The demand for interactive speaker (e.g., Amazon Echo and Google Home) is rapidly increasing especially in parenting situations. However, previous studies have focused on impression of interactive speaker or operating existing services by voice. In this study, we focused on interaction between a child and an interactive speaker for applying it to parenting situations. Children between the ages of 3 and 6 participated and did conversation play interacted with the interactive speaker. We explored relation between the participant’s personality and his or her reactions. The results indicated that children who are emotionally stable, who are not nervous, or who are highly adaptive to new environment interacted with the interactive speaker better than the others. These results suggested that interaction design depending on a child’s personality should be considered.
