Jackson makes kid-size boats for whitewater and flatwater. The Flatwater boat is the Mini Tripper.

The Perception Prodigy XS looks like the replacement for the Acadia Scout. Probably a good option and easy to find.

I agree that you should avoid putting kids in adult-sized boats if you have a choice. I've seen too many kids wrestling with adult-sized paddles, having a a hard time reaching the water because the boat was so deep and wide.
