In my opinion, at that age they will find a reel of any kind to be difficult and frustrating. I would take my daughter fishing at that age and she used a small cane pole with a hook. pinch on sinker and a bobber. we used bacon as bait. It stays on the hook well. She would catch blue gills for me to use as bait for bass and cats. Man she loved doing that.
