The VTech Kidi Super Star is a solid choice if you are looking for children’s karaoke machine that is dedicated for kids. So if you are looking for a karaoke system for the family I would suggest looking at a little higher end model. As consumers have said kids love this system and have loads of fun playing with this unique toy.
This karaoke machine is very popular in Europe. It won 2016 Toy of the Year in the Musical Toy category in France. Also was elected as Christmas Gift Guide 2016: Top Ten Gifts in United Kingdom. It is a recent addition to the United States market but so far the reviews have been stellar.
Some considerations I would take into mind before purchasing this unit is can you live with only one microphone. This could cause some grief if many kids are trying to use this toy at the same time. A very similar product that comes equipped with two microphones and many of the same features is the Little Pretender Karaoke Machine. Another consideration is sound quality. Keep in mind this is a toy and for kids so I feel sound quality shouldn’t be the deciding factor. If it was this machine would cost double or even triple what it is currently.
Overall we feel this would make a perfect Christmas or birthday gift for kids who love music and performing. Price is not overly expensive and this kids karaoke machine has lots of fun features kids will enjoy for hours at a time.
