    I know that Fox, Lizard Skins and 661 make youth (at least) armour. But I would imagine that most manufacturers would.

    Visit your LBS and ask around.

    Just make sure they fit correctly, seems like it's hard to find good DH Armour for kids under 12-13. Don't skimp, can be the difference between a good and bad day out with the kids.

    V-Sixty has good fitting small legs. Their arms are a bit off. As long as the protection part fits, you can get the straps shortened at the same place you'd get pants hemmed.

    if you have difficulty getting MTB specific visit your motorcycle/motocross dealer and get him that. Same stuff, ie the roost and shin and elbows.
    that's what I did with my guy
