Tournament of Kings
Let ye little ones experience Arthurian legends at Tournament of Kings at the Excalibur. This show screams kids with jousting, horseback riding and eating with your hands! Bonus: thanks to the three-course meal served, parents won’t have to find dinner for everybody before or after.

Popovich Comedy Pet Theater
Kids and pets go hand-and-hand so it is no surprise that Popovich Comedy Pet Theater has made this list. Kids will love watching numerous dogs, cats, birds and other animals perform tricks and comedy bits.  Popovich, who is a fifth-generation circus performer, also shows off his talents through juggling and balancing acts. The best part about Popovich Comedy Pet Theater is that it performs in the afternoon, so you can be back at your hotel for the kids bedtime.

Blue Man Group
Blue Man Group is one of the best Vegas shows for kids. Blending music, comedy, art and science, the show is an auditory and visual masterpiece. Plus, there is a chance you will be splatted by paint. That sounds like kid entertainment.

Cirque du Soleil’s Mystère
If you have a kid who is hard to entertain you have to check out Mystère at Treasure Island. The Cirque du Soleil production uses gravity-defying poses, hand-to-hand balancing and jaw-dropping aerialists you won’t believe. It’s sure to impress even the pickiest kid.

Jeff Civilico: Comedy in Action
Physical comedy, stunts, juggling skills and more, Jeff Civilico: Comedy in Action has it all. Kids won’t be able to get enough of Civilico’s wild acts like his straightjacket escape while on a unicycle, knife juggling and ladder balancing on his chin. Who wouldn’t love that? Plus, Civilico charms the audience and even gets them involved in some of his acts.

What kid doesn’t love dancing? At Jabbawockeez Live at MGM Grand, children can watch in amazement as dancers wearing expressionless white masks and white gloves perform synchronized dance moves. The show is also packed full of comedy and audience interaction, which is great for keeping kids engaged.

Xavier Mortimer’s Magical Dream
If your child is a dreamer they will love seeing Xavier Mortimer’s Magical Dream. The show transports you to a world full of unconventional characters and talents as Mortimer expands your mind with mind-blowing magic.

Mat Franco - Magic Reinvented
America’s Got Talent winner, Mat Franco will keep the kiddos amazed with his magic show, Mat Franco: Magic Reinvented at The LINQ. Performed in an intimate showroom, you and the kids will be able to see Franco’s sleight-of-hand magic tricks up close for an unforgettable experience. You might even learn a magic trick or two.

Mac King Comedy and Magic Show
A big hit with the kids, Mac King Comedy and Magic Show offers silly stunts like making a live goldfish appear on someone’s head and other tricks. The act is also squeaky clean so parents don’t have to be ready to “ear muff” it.

Named the “Best Family-Friendly Show” by the Las Vegas Review Journal, Laughternoon at the D Las Vegas blends comedy and illusions with an early show time of 4:00 p.m. aka the perfect time for kids. And Adam London and his rubber duck obsession will speak directly to kids.
