How about this:

Its cheap enough you could shorten the LOP to suit her easily with the wooden stock.

I've got a Mossberg 702 Plinskter which is a mag fed semi auto but you can load up the mag with only 2 rounds if that's all you want her to have. It is pretty small IMO but is not marketed as a "youth" rifle.

I'll second the CZ Scout. Savage Rascal a good alternative

Nice rifle, comes with a single-shot adapter and you can use standard CZ 22lr 5 and 10 round mags when you want to.

I'm not worried about a bolt action running away, and I dislike the difficulty of
unloading the Cricket once it's been cocked.

Also, while I get the appeal of a Finding Nemo themed/branded rifle for kids, I wanted mine to have one that *looked* like a firearm, not a toy. Besides, My little girl's 5 and at Cabellas she gravitated to the AR-15s. "Can we get one of these, daddy?" I should have listened.
