As every parent knows, children like to sing, dance and play. That is why karaoke machines are so effective at getting your child’s attention.

Since there are a lot of unique kinds of karaoke machines to choose from, you have a good chance of finding the right one for your child. From pink and girls to blue and cool, manufacturers offer an endless number of options to choose from.

Let me briefly remind here some essential features required for a good karaoke machine for kids:

It has to be easy enough to use, preferably with no setup required. Also, it would be nice if it also function with batteries. This way your machine would be much more portable and kids can carry it around and play with it anywhere possible.

Note also that having a built in screen is a big plus. Also, I would check if the karaoke machine can also hook up to your TV. This is a great and convenient feature to consider when purchasing such machines.

Connectivity to smart devices such as iPhones, iPods, and iPads for easy song add-ons and playing is another good feature to consider when purchasing a kids karaoke machine.

From my experience, themed karaoke machines are very popular among kids, especially girls. Barbie, Hello Kitty and monster high are just few examples.

I never thought the day would come where I would be shopping for a pink karaoke machine, but last week I got an Girl Singinginvitation to my niece, Megan’s, birthday party.  She is turning 7.  Her mom, knowing that I’m somewhat of an expert in these matters, called to tell me that other than a few small gifts, the main thing she had on her wish-list was a karaoke machine.

I knew how much fun Megan had the last time she and her family were over at my house for dinner – she had played with my system almost the entire time, only stopping once to eat some ice cream. So it shouldn’t have come as a huge surprise that she wanted a karaoke machine of her very own.  Her mom was hoping I could research some of them and let her know what would be the best machine for her to purchase.

Megan had a couple of features she definitely wanted – it didn’t have to be pink, but she definitely wanted something girly.  She also wanted to be able to plug in two microphones so she and a friend could sing together. Disco lights would be a bonus, but not a necessity.

Another bonus would be a video recorder so she could watch her performances – that wasn’t a necessity either, but definitely something to keep in the back of my mind.  So, with those criteria in mind, I got to work looking for the best girls karaoke machine I could find.

Hannah Montana karaoke machineThe other day, I was having dinner with a dear friend of mine Louise. She is an engineer and she is into blogging as a hobby. We meet regularly once a month to catch up and discuss what we are up to. As she knows I am a karaoke fan, she told me the story about her daughter’s birthday and how she decided to buy a karaoke machine for her. Cute story and as I know she does very thorough research when buying stuff, she must know by now a lot about karaoke machines. I asked her to write a post about her experience so I can publish on my site so people can benefit from her experience.  As she likes writing, particularly about technical stuff, she accepted to do this.

I remember the first time I ever sang karaoke.  My friend had invited me over for a dinner party at her house.  I figured it would be fairly typical – we would all sit in the living room chatting until dinner was ready, then we would eat a delicious meal, and then return back to the living room to drink coffee and eat dessert.

Singing KaraokeI was surprised when, after we had finished eating dinner, my friend’s husband brought out a karaoke machine and began setting it up.  My heart started pounding in my chest a little bit.  Are they going to expect me to sing?  I don’t sing!  Maybe I can fake being sick and leave early. 

My friend must have seen the worried look on my face, because she came over by me and quietly told me that I didn’t have to participate if I didn’t want to, but she assured me that it was so much fun she was sure I wouldn’t be able to resist.    I had already decided I wasn’t going to sing, but as I sat there listening to everyone else sing all different types of songs from oldies to current pop songs, I began to get more comfortable.  I loved the fact that the karaoke machine had a TV hook up, so not only were all of us able to see the lyrics on the big screen, but the sound actually ran through the TV speakers as well.  Finally, after listening to about 5 or 6 performances, I decided to give it a try.
