When we’re kids, our curiosity is at its peak. Everything new and interesting gets our attention. As a parent, you may want to get some advantage of that and involve your kid in some activities that develop their physical and mental skills. Ukulele for kids is a great option!
Apart from enhancing their listening skills, they will have a chance to improve their reflections and create new neuron connections. You tell that to a kid, and they might not understand. So, what can you do?
First of all, avoid forcing your kid to play the ukulele. That way you will only strip out all the fun this instrument can give to you and them. Rather, give them a good reason to do such a thing.
Perhaps, you can ask them how they would feel if they were able to play some Disney songs like “Let It Go” or “Lava”, both pretty easy to learn.
Another strategy could be telling them you want to spend some time with them. That way you would also have a chance to learn some ukes songs, encourage them to follow your lead, and have fun together.
Once you have convinced them to play the ukulele, it is time to choose one out of the many options you can find out there. Don’t worry, we paved the way and created this list with ukes under the $100.00 to ease this process for you.
Some ukulele options for kids
Ukuleles come in 4 standard sizes. While all of them are smaller than a guitar, a kid will feel more comfortable with a soprano or a concert uke. That’s why we are only listing those here:
This amazing ukulele is made out of mahogany wood, durable material with a natural color that’s pleasant to see. You can also get it in fun colors such as neon blue, yellow, purple, orange, violet, turquoise, blue, mint green, pink and more.
It gets even better as it comes in a starter pack that includes:
- Gig bag
- Chord chart
- One strap button on its back
This ukulele places a great opportunity to get an affordable instrument that brings a lot of value to your kid.
This ukulele is also made out of mahogany wood which is great to produce a very deep, warm sound. It also comes in fun, eye-catching colors. You can choose between dragon fruit color, yellow, aqua, grasshopper green, orange, blue frostbite, and other nice colors.
Even though it comes with a Kala ukulele bag, you can add a gig bag or a hard shell case for a discounted price with the purchase. Its unbeatable price makes it a great option for starters that you can replace later on once your kid improves their ukulele skills.
For a bigger ukulele option, you might want to try this one out. It comes with a pretty cool shape, not to mention the outstanding orange color.
However, what’s even more unique about this uke is its carbon fiber everything. Say, the whole uke is made out of that material which it’s great to use and abuse as it is pretty resistant.
In the case you are looking for a smaller version at a more affordable price, you can try out the Enya Nova Mini Soprano available in black. For the concert version, you can also have it in white.
Also crafted with mahogany wood, this ukulele got a pretty fun artwork matching Beatriz “Bía” Urquiza’s ukulele, named Céu. It also includes these accessories.
It comes with:
- Candy Pack
- Chord Chart
- Microfiber Cloth
To keep this uke safe, you might want to include a discounted Cordoba padded gig bag or hard shell cases when you buy this fun ukulele version.
This unique mahogany ukulele stands for the beautiful color associated with this wood. It’s great if you are looking for a traditional design with a satin finish. Even though it doesn’t come with a gig bag, you can add a discounted Kala padded one or hard shell cases when you buy this beauty.
More than that, this uke shares the same perks as the other ukuleles already mentioned.
This Ohana Ukulele is especially fun. It is not made out of pineapple though. As with the other uke options, mahogany wood was used to craft this one.
Then, why is it called pineapple? Because it resembles a pineapple shape. In contrast with the Kala KA-S standard design, this one stands out for its particular round form.
It also comes with unique ULTP perks like:
- Gig Bag
- Microfiber Cloth
- Famous Case Candy
- Pocket Chord Chart
Please note that any of these ukes grants you premium access to the courses we offer at ULTP for a month. After that, you might want to consider keeping the membership which includes a ukulele course devoted to kids.
