Spotify Playlists that Kids Love & You'll Tolerate

Spotify Playlists Kids

Kids love music. From an early age, my little guy loved to listen to songs. Now that he's older (21 months at this point!) he loves to dance, drum, shake his toy shakers, and even try to sing. It's really fun.

However, an adult can only hear Barney sing "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" so many before they need something new. And maybe an Aspirin.

On that note, here are a few Spotify playlists for kids that will also be appealing (or at least tolerable) to their parents:

Kids Workout by Spotify

This contains a lot of the usual suspects (Sesame Street, The Wiggles, Raffi, etc.) but it has enough variety that you won't run screaming from it.

For a while.

Pop For Kids by Spotify Canada

This is another playlist created by Spotify itself and, yes, it contains quite a lot of Kidz Bop. Yes, that can certainly drive you crazy. But kids love it, so here it is and at least there's a chance that you'll have fun with it to. It also has some other artists such as Katy Perry, Carly Rae Jepsen, Pharrell, The Lumineers and more, so those should help you keep your sanity.

Folk For Kids by Spotify

We almost entirely get away from "kids bands" and Kidz Bop (they're still in there though!) with this one. Peter, Paul and Mary, Crosby & Nash, Bob Marley & the Wailers, Woody Guthrie, and even Johnny Cash make appearances in this playlist.

Hits for Kids by Digster

This might not be appropriate for everyone, especially younger kids, but if you're looking for a playlist that contains Justin Bieber, 5 Seconds of Summer, Drake, Ariana Grande and more, you've found it. They're all pretty "poppy" songs that slightly older kids will enjoy. It's a playlist made by a Swedish Spotify user, so there are some Swedish songs in there.

Disney Soundtracks by Amanda Sherwin

Music from Pocahontas, Winnie the Pooh, The Lion King, Tangled, and, of course, Frozen, not to mention many other songs. Your kid will be singing these anyway, so why not have a playlist?

What are your favourite kids playlists?
