If your not going to make one, check out Black Rhino bows. I got one for my 4 yr old boy and it is a nice piece of archery tackle for a kid. Wish I'd had something like it when I was a kid. It draws 9lb at 18 in.
I also got a kick butt t/d recurve from Kevin Brown at Herwaybows for my 8 yr old son. It is a work of art. Google him up. Great guy and true craftsman.

Man---I am about two or three months out from getting a few kids bows built too. But since I cannot help you out let me suggest also to look up Maddog Pups made by Mike McCredy. They are good sticks and he is a great guy. Each bow even comes with some arrows if I remember correctly.

Also look at 3Rivers Archery (http://www.3riversarchery.com/Bow+Building+Primitive+Kits_c4 9_s201_p0_thumb.html). They have some "U-finish" type bows that are nearly done, they just need the final tiller check, reduced to your desired draw weight and a finish applied. They run from $100-$160.
