"Kids Mode" is a mode for Just Dance 2018. A total of eight special choreographies "developed with the help of kids’ experts to encourage healthy movement" feature in this mode.

The mode itself is exclusive to Wii U, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch[1], but the songs appear in the tracklist for all 7th-Generation consoles. The songs can also be played through the normal Just Dance mode on Wii U, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch.



  • Instead of using the main game’s scoring system (which uses words like "PERFECT" or "SUPER"), Kids Mode uses words such as "HAHA", "YAY" and "WOW".
  • "Superstar" (11,000) and "Megastar" (12,000) scoring goals are not used in Kids Mode, instead you get rainbow stars by 11,000 points, the same way as getting "Superstar" in Just Dance Mode.

  • None of the routines in this mode have pictograms.
    • This is the fourth time this has happened. It was formerly employed in Warm Up, Cheesy Cha Cha, and Double Rumble.
    • However, on 7th gen consoles and Just Dance/Dance Party Mode, there are pictograms for kids mode.
  • Due to a glitch, in previews, the Gold Move sparkles are not visible[3].
  • All songs have their backgrounds missing from their menu squares. This is not the case for Just Dance Unlimited songs.
  • All the routines can be played in Just Dance Mode.
    • In this case, Pictograms are displayed and the covers include the background.
  • When the avatar is not loaded yet, it is replaced by a grey sleeping face with a thinking cloud that says "ZZZ".
  • The 8 original songs appear on the 7th gen consoles as part of the main tracklist.
  • Unlike 8th gen consoles, the 7th gen does not score at all like the former for this mode.
  • In the game’s files, there are unused squares that were meant to be on this mode, including In the Hall of the Pixel King, Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini, Love Ward, Carmen (Overture), and Bubble Pop! (Bubblegum Version).
    • There are also 2 unknown Kids Mode Squares in the game’s files which were never revealed and that includes Instruction and Shape of You.
  • The original Kids routines cannot be played on World Dance Floor.
  • When a Just Dance Unlimited routine is played but its respective avatar cannot be loaded, Keep on Moving’s is used as a placeholder.
    • In their respective scoring screens, instead, Ring My Bell’s is displayed as default.
