1) Let It Go – Frozen
A firm inter-generational favourite, this is actually one of the top 3 most sung songs by adults when they're in our karaoke bars and it's easy to see why: its message of self-empowerment and freedom resonates no matter what age you are!
2) Shake It Off – Taylor Swift
Another great kids karaoke song with a good message (though it is couched in terms you may well hate as a parent): let the haters hate and have fun instead of worrying!
3) Dancing Queen – Abba
You're never too young to be introduced to the wonders of Dancing Queen for the first time! A fab pick for a mother/daughter karaoke duet.
4) Baby Shark – Pinkfong
Love it or hate it, with over 2.5 billion views on Youtube, Baby Shark isn't going anywhere! A great choice for particularly young children, and also for the whole family to sing together: daddy shark do do do do, grandma shark do do do do...
5) Price Tag – Jessie J
Eight years on from topping the UK Singles Chart, Price Tag is still an absolute karaoke anthem, and once again has a good moral message to sneak in under your child's radar – money isn't everything!
6) Here Comes The Sun – The Beatles
A wonderful bit of upbeat rock 'n' roll from The Beatles that is sure to put a smile on the face of children and parents alike. It's also never too early to introduce your kids to one of the classics – they'll thank you when they're at university and considered cool by their peers!
7) A Whole New World – Aladdin
There was always going to be a lot of Disney on this list! A Whole New World is the best song from Disney's Aladdin for a kids sing along, but Arabian Nights, Friend Like Me and One Jump Ahead are also excellent choices.
8) Happy – Pharrell Williams
Happy is a toe-tapping, finger snapping ear worm that is ideal for kids karaoke. The lyrics are also pretty easy to remember!
9) MMMBop – Hanson
Unsurprisingly, a song written and performed by a 16 year old, 13 year old and 11 year old is a perfect fit for kids karaoke. And just look at all that wonderful 90s hair!
10) Under The Sea – The Little Mermaid
Any song that includes the lyrics "The newt play the flute, The carp play the harp, The plaice play the bass, And they soundin' sharp" is quite simply an objective masterpiece!
11) Don't Stop Moving – S Club 7
The masters of child-friendly pop, most of the songs in the S Club 7 back catalogue make for a great kids karaoke session, but due to its upbeat, energetic tempo Don't Stop Moving is definitely the pick of the bunch.
12) Shallow – Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper
While A Star Is Born has some very non-child friendly themes, its hit single is squeaky clean lyrically and fabulous fun to sing, especially as a duet. There's also great pleasure to be had from watching your child try and deal with a screen of lyrics that just reads 'Oooooooh, Oooooooh, Oooooooh, Oooooooh, Whoooooooah!'
13) How Far I'll Go – Moana
Moana was an instant Disney classic; who would have thought The Rock could sing! The lead single from the film is so good it received both a Golden Globe and Academy Award nomination for best original song, though it lost out both times to La La Land's City Of Stars.
14) Can't Stop The Feeling – Justin Timberlake
This ode to dance by Justin Timberlake is a brilliantly energetic song for kids to sing along to while throwing some of their very own shapes.
15) Bohemian Rhapsody – Queen
The wonderful nonsense lyrics of Bohemian Rhapsody make for a great kids karaoke song. Scaramouche, Scaramouche, will you do the Fandango?
16) Can You Feel The Love Tonight – Elton John/The Lion King
Who else misses the glory days when Elton John wrote songs for Disney? This is a fab tribute to the beauty of both love and the great outdoors that's sure to inspire your little one to actually spend some time outside for a change!
17) A Million Dreams – The Greatest Showman
Another huge hit from a musical that proved an absolute box office phenomena, A Million Dreams is a brilliantly cheesy bit of pop that's guaranteed to inspire your little entertainer to run away with the circus.
18) Go The Distance – Hercules
Whether you choose to sing the Disney original or the epic Michael Bolton cover, Go The Distance is a beautiful power ballad about overcoming the trials and tribulations of life that's sure to make your little one feel like a hero.
19) Baggy Trousers – Madness
Part of our round up of the top 20 easiest karaoke songs to sing, the madcap tempo of Baggy Trousers combined with its school days lyrics make it a brill kids karaoke song that parents can enjoy too.
20) The Bare Necessities – Jungle Book
What a song to end on! The Bare Necessities is an old school bit of Disney all about staying carefree and happy, the perfect message for overly hyper children!
