I recommend for regs:

- Apeks XL4 Ocea. Sustainable, light weight, comfortable mouthpiece, and already comes with the (lighter) braided hoses. Quality stuff. - my daughter dives that. It's not cheap, but not expensive.
- Very light weight, excellent performance, long intervals between service. However, extremely expensive. quality stuff.
- Scubapro Mk21 - very affordable for its performance, still has venturi at this price range. Much more access to servicing than the above two (but that depends on where you live).

For BCDs, I don't know from your post the type you're looking for, but I know little now about jacket styles (last dive 20 years ago). The only thing I know is that backplate/wing is easier for travelling. Xdeep, Deept6, Apeks, Tecline - all good. Go with aluminum backplate for traveling. Personally, I recommend Xdeep Zeos 28 (single tank), and she can choose the color - that's my 14 year old daughter's.
both my kids learned to dive at 10, and after their course, i switched them to BP/W + L/S hose. (they are now 13 and 15 yo)

the BPis the oxycheq Ultra Lite Travel Plate, with the 30# wing 18#, 30# and 40# Single Wings. they are now 30cm taller and 10kg heavier, and all I had to do was swap out webbing. the should be able to use them until their fully grown.

for regs, i got the DGX D6 single-tank packagae, which are made by deep6
