Kids love to sing, so finding them the right microphone for your little pop star will be a great gift for them. In this review, we will look through all the different types of microphones out there and find the best of the bunch. That way your kid can sing their little heart out in true karaoke style with a fantastic new microphone.
Considerations when choosing a kids microphone
Design and functionality – The easier they are to use, the better for little kids. There’s a lot out there, from kids toys to professional microphones, and its hard to know what is what sometimes. There is a variety here in this review, but we will look into the children’s range, which is usually cheaper and more user-friendly than some of the microphones that need a PA-system connected to play for example. All of the microphones in this review are battery operated, compact and wireless. Most kids don’t want to be tied to a lead or want to have to think about the cable tripping them up.
Durability – Having a microphone that can handle the rough-style of handling is crucial when kids of all ages are involved. Some are made better than others and in this review, you will be able to see the subtle differences and get an overall rating from me.
Battery life – Some require batteries and others don’t but in this review, I have opted to give you more with ones that do need batteries, because of their ease to use, features and overall safety.
Safety – This is fundamental to all parents and all of these carefully selected microphones have passed U.S standard regulations. That being said it is important to make sure they are not too young to be handling devices that could cause them harm. Some kids handle and use items inappropriately, which increases potential risk and that’s why microphones that are not plugged in via AUX and use batteries will always be safer as a general rule. However, some kids can find interesting ways to use batteries, so make sure to fit them yourselves.
Features – Some microphones have pre-recorded songs and keep kids entertained for hours. Others have app’s that can be downloaded to a phone that can be controlled via wireless, which is a cool way to keep up-to-date with the latest content and music.
