Some children love LEGO and some children love singing, from babies through to toddlers then teenagers. However, their needs in a microphone differ as they get older. Different styles of mic and toy mic appeal to different age groups. Here, we will take a look at some of the things you should be looking for in a microphone no matter how old your child is.
Different Types of Microphones for Singing
For babies, a toy microphone which lights up and plays music is probably the best choice. Vtech and other popular baby toy brands have some great picks. Toy microphones can be used to play popular nursery rhymes and can help kids learn about colors, animals and many more at the same time.
Toddlers usually love to sing their favorite nursery rhymes, so now is the best time to invest in a ‘real’ microphone for them to practice with! Allowing children to hear themselves sing is also great for boosting their confidence. The earlier they are able to do this, the better. They will be much less nervous performing in front of people as they get older.
The best toy microphone for kids who are school aged is probably something which offers more ‘real’ features. There are great wireless microphones which allow kids to record and playback their singing. Some can be hooked up to mobile devices, allowing kids to sing along to karaoke versions of their favorite songs.
For older children and teenagers who love to sing, we recommend a Bluetooth microphone and speaker system. These give a sound quality which is much better than any ‘toy’ microphone, so they’re great for those who are starting to take their singing more seriously. There are great microphones which have a really long battery life and a powerful output, perfect for amateur performances!
