I didn't realize (not listed in the specs or in the features for the device on kobo.com) that the new firmware comes with a browser. I don't think the child's parents would like her to have unfettered Internet access through a browser, so unless I can figure out how to have this "bonus" removed, I am going to have to return the device.
As an FYI - the browser is an unsupported beta feature (which is likely why they don't advertise it - they make no guarantees it will work the way you want) but it has been there since the early days of the Kobo Wifi (2 devices ago) - it's not something added recently with new firmware.
Having said that, I can understand your concern. It's pretty primitive and limited functioning but a kid wanting to get onto something would live with it.
