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.

Top 5 Karaoke Machine for Girls

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.
