I recommend looking at your local Craigslist or Facebook Marketplace before you buy something new. One day my 7 year old is super interested in piano, the next day she wants nothing to do with it and she’d drawing her favorite Pokémon. I’m sure there are a ton of kids who’ve abandoned piano who’s parents would love to get the space back in their house.

The kid is 10, so the first question is, once she has it, will she actually like to play.

My advice would be, get something second hand, with a decent sound and not too many bells and whistles. For now it's about learning and enjoying to play. And let her learn to read notes and chords instead of some iPad app with falling notes or keys that light up. At this age she will pick it up in no time.
