Cheap zoom 28-70/28-105 for 11yo 1st SLR

I'm looking for a cheap (<$100 AUD including postage), auto focus, zoom lens for my niece's birthday in Feb. Something like the film camera Tammy 28-105 lens or similar? She's only 11, so dont want to go an exy lens - that will come later...

Does anyone have one lying around, ready to help fan the flames of a budding photographer who is already showing a good eye?

If the person who PMed doesn't work out for you (maybe postage from Canada a bit much!) then I have the Sigma 28-80mm f3.5-5.6 (here is Australia too) - $50 including postage.

Thanks Quazimoto & Nick - I managed to get the Sigma 28-80 with MZ-50 & camera bag for $24 incl postage. Poor thing, she's going to think I bought her a film camera - hahaha - until I present her with the K100D Super...
