I love my kids… right and I know you do yours too

And most times we actually want them to follow in our footsteps

As a DJ, it’s only right that I get DJ mixers for kids so they can practice what I have taught them and also get to learn with me

Which is a good thing right?

I mean there should be ready and available toy DJ turntables or even baby DJ set out there

But I had a rude shock after doing a lot of testing and finding out that the products out there are simply fake or do not work as I expected

So i decided to do some research and come up with the best DJ mixers for kids so you can have an idea of what you want to get, how to get it and what makes it a top choice for your kids

Criteria for choosing the Best DJ Mixer for kids

DJ mixer for kids

Obviously, before I made my choice, dozens of beginner mixers were evaluated and tested to see which one fits the bill

The 5 DJ mixers for kids that were selected ticked about 95 percent of the criteria needed before being labelled one of the best.

The important features that were considered include the following

1. The Price

In as much as I want to get my kid to learn how to be a DJ, I also had to consider that it’s going to be a toy

So I needed to get him something that was about a couple hundred bucks - 200 max

It is going to be a toy and he is a kid so something that does not burn a deep hole in my pocket when it breaks

2. Be able to cue through a headphone

I also need something that can cue through a headphone, so basically 2 outputs

This is because for me a good DJ mix starts with mixing 2 beats and without the headphone cueing, it just does not work out well for me.

3. How durable is it?

This also ties back with the point mentioned above

Kids tend to break things and so I wanted something that is a bit durable and will last for a long time before it eventually gets smashed

4. It should be simple and very user friendly

Self explanatory here right

I need something that is not complicated and can be easily figured out by a kid

Something that is not complicated and intimidating and very easy for anyone to get the hang of pretty quickly

I mean it is for a 7 year old DJ wannabe

Also something that has a simple learning curve was a major contributing factor

5. What software does it operate on?

Finally you want a software that is capable of serving the needs of a pro DJ

So you look at your screen and then you look at the controller. What you see is the same things in the same places so it just makes sense

Also the color scheme and layout should lend itself to visual learners as well
