Here is what I did recently for one of my daughters who was in a similar situation:
Rod: Echo Gecko. Specifically made for kids, it is colorful, the grip is mall, etc. $100. Works great single handed, but also functions as a two handed overhead rod if required. Warrantee, which is important for a kids rod.

Reel: Found an old System 1 Scientific Angler reel to fit above on Ebay. This reel is very regularly available inexpensively and is the same as a Hardy Marquis (System 2 reels are not the same). It is great trout reel available for $100 used in good condition. Alternative would be to find an old Ross Gunnison or Cimmaron on Ebay.
