The days of all the family gathering round the TV to watch 'X Factor' may be over, but why not carry on the fun with a karaoke machine or microphone?

Whether you've got a mini Ariana Grande on your hands or you all just want to have a bit of karaoke fun with special voice effects, we've taken a look round for the best toy microphones and microphones for kids.

Take a look and see which is the best kids' microphone for your next karaoke party...

Kidadl's Top Pick

All the microphones we've found are good value for their quality, but we think this one really has it all. Fun special effects and disco lights make it ideal for your little pop star!

1. VTech Kidi Super Star DJ Microphone‍

We reckon the VTech Kidi is the best option for a family sing along at home because there are so many features to keep everyone entertained. You can turn your living room into a stage or nightclub as your child sings their heart out or has their first go at being a proper DJ by using the voice removal and effects technology. There are even colour-changing disco lights to add to the effect. This kids' microphone and stand is a surefire winner!

Main Features

  • Price: £49.99
  • Age: 6 and over
  • Comes with stand (though you can use it without)
  • All in one karaoke and DJ mixer

Best For Families On A Budget

2. Smalife Wireless Bluetooth Microphone‍

This is a great quality all-round microphone packed with features. We love the rose gold colour scheme (keeping those style-conscious tweens happy) - but the specs are amazing too for the price. This kids' wireless microphone can also be used as a Bluetooth speaker, loudspeaker and recorder, is easy to connect to your smart device, and you can play around with the echo effect. Note this is more of a 'proper' mic rather than the toy microphones listed below for younger ages, which is why we think it's the best buy around.

Main Features

  • Price: £12.99
  • Age: 3 and over
  • 4 in 1 design including microphone, Bluetooth speaker, loudspeaker and recorder
  • Noise reduction and echo microphone

Best For Early Years

3. Fisher Price Rock And Record Microphone

Get your child started early with this classic toddler's microphone. It's brilliant for pretend play and also includes educational phrases about colours, opposites, body parts, letters and numbers. They can also have great fun with the voice recorder function by adding sound effects and beats when they play it back.

Main Features

  • Price: £12.99
  • Age: 18 months and over
  • Microphone and voice recorder
  • Two modes - record and play back and sing along

Best For Under 10s

4. Party Star Kids' Childrens' Light Up Musical Microphone & Stand‍

The sound quality of this kids' standing mic isn't amazing for the price, but we like the features - if they enjoy pretending to be a pop star they'll love the different types of crowd applause available and the flashing disco ball. The five built-in tracks will amuse them as they practise hitting those difficult notes.

Main Features

  • Price: £20.49
  • Age: 6 and above
  • Toy microphone on stand
  • Applause, cheers and flashing disco ball

Best Kids' Microphone With Stand

5. Bontempi Stage Microphone‍

This is a good option if you're looking for a child's first toy microphone with a stand, as it suits kids from age three and above. The lights flash to the beat which should amuse younger children, while you can easily connect it to your smart device for those sing-along occasions. The stand is adjustable so can be used by older toddlers, which is just as well as the bright design probably won't appeal as much to school children.

Main Features

  • Price: £22.48
  • Age: 3 and above
  • Adjustable stand
  • 8 demo songs

Best All Round Karaoke Microphone

6. Allcele Wireless Karaoke Microphone‍

We love this karaoke microphone! Older kids will love the doll and robot voice changing functions, while the sound quality is good enough for us to get in on the fun (even when the children aren't around). It can be used as a karaoke microphone for kids but adults will need to help set up the smart device connections via Bluetooth.

Main Features

  • Price: £18.69
  • Age: Suitable for supervised children and adults
  • 5 fun sound modes - original sound, child voice, female voice, robot voice, old man voice
  • Connection via Bluetooth available for up to 10 metres

Best Microphone For All The Family

7. Leeron Karaoke Microphone‍

We particularly like the LED lights that come with this wireless microphone for kids and adults. Kids will think the 'water wave' effect of the lights is super cool, while grownups will appreciate the crystal-clear sound quality and two-year warranty. It's super compatible with most Android and Apple devices so that karaoke night should get going quickly without delay.

Main Features

  • Price: £22.98
  • Age: 4 and above
  • Great LED lights

Best Battery Life

8. RCToys Portable Wireless Bluetooth Karaoke Microphone‍

This karaoke machine and mic is super portable - so it's just as well that the battery life lasts for a huge eight hours. We love the phone mount which makes it really easy to sing to the music anywhere, while the sleek carry case is great for transporting it. This is a great kids' Bluetooth microphone option for older children and adults, but probably not for younger ones. It's also on the pricier side, but worth the investment if you're a karaoke king or queen.

Main Features

  • Price: £53.99
  • Age: Suitable for older children (around 8 years old) and adults
  • Comes with phone mount and carry case
  • 8 hours battery life

Best Looking Microphone

9. The Singing Machine Kids' Mic Guy Bluetooth Speaker

We love the look of this Guy kids' microphone! It's easy to hold like the other products we've listed, but it also stands well if kids would like to sit down whilst they sing. It's lightweight but also durable enough to handle those inevitable bumps and mild tantrums. It's definitely designed to be a kids' microphone, but we think it's stylish enough to live outside of the toy box.

Main Features

  • Price: £19.99
  • Age: 4 and above
  • Changes colour and pulses in time to the music
  • Works with all music and karaoke apps
