Default Radio for small hands (4 year old hands)

My 4 year old is super into RC, but she's having trouble holding the pistol grip radios. I've tried the ARRMA ATX100, Futaba 3PM and T3PK, stock traxxas radio, as well as stock Tamiya radio. and she has problem with the throttle. Her fingers are too short to get good control of throttle and brake.

I thought about setting her up with a Futaba 2 channel stick radio, but surface stick is a dying breed, and I don't want to get her used to something that won't always be available.

Before I take a radio and cut it up and reshape it to fit her hand, is there any off the shelf models that are made for small hands? Not full size radios that seem small. I mean child size radios. Pistol grip style.
