Free Child character rig for December competition?

Hello everyone. I am planning to participate in December's competition. I have an idea for the shot don't have any child rig. Do any of you know child rig for free and easy to animate on Maya 2014?
Thanks in advance

Josh Sobel's Kayle rig isn't free but it's only $12.00. High quality, adjustable age, poses like a dream - very much worth the small cost.

Thanks for the suggestion.
There is also Pio Character which is 12 euro but I decided to first look for free rigs. If I don't find anything I will probably buy Kayla or Pio in the end.

I'm guessing the Kyla Rig will be very popular this month. But which gender will people choose? i think you can go either ways so quite interesting.

The eleven rig is young looking
and could be scaled to fit this audio nicely..

For the record...it could be an ANT if you want it to be. I think gender here is wide open.

Free rigs that I think would suit the voice just fine and personally I would find more interesting than seeing 200 animations of a little girl.

Not to say you can't use a child rig, i'm not going to base my votes on the rig you choose to use. I would highly recommend kayla though, josh's rigs are amazing.

If you wanted to go a humorous route, you could use the TF4 rigs and make the big burly dude singing pretty.  I personally am looking for creativity and animation, I don't care about lighting or rendering or any of that in my voting.  I can't speak for anyone else though. Just what I base my voting on.

Hey Ryan,
Thanks for the suggestion but I don't think I am capable of animating animals or creatures properly right now.
I totally understand you about on creative thinking and animation and I know it's kinda an excuse but I think I would feel better if I had the experience on this subject. I will learn eventually because I do want to get better at animation. Right now I am concentrating on Humans or human like bodies and more importantly trying improve my acting animation.

Thanks again.
