First boat for small 9 yr old girl?

I'd like to get my daughter her first sailboat. She's weighs about 50# soaking wet and is just over 4 feet tall. I thought an Optimist was the obvious choice, but wow are those things expensive. I'm thinking $500 tops, preferably less.

Am I being too cheap? What other boats should I look at?

- Jasen.
