I'm not looking to spend a fortune or train a future champ; I just want her to have as much fun as possible and not be overly handicapped by equipment that makes it tougher to learn.

Since I'm in London, Ontario, the selection locally is small but I frequently buy mail order in the US and ship to a nearby border city in Michigan.

Thanks for any and all suggestions!

burton chopper would be a good call, also take a look at the lib ripper 115 from Lib Tech. It's reverse camber so learning to get edge to edge turns is really easy and it speeds up the learning process exponentially.
