Default Fly fishing combo for kids

I've read the recent thread about beginner's combos but didn't want to push it off-topic with this question so started another.

I finally took up fly fishing last year after wanting to for many, many years. I greatly enjoyed it and now my kids are excited about it. I started looking online for some combos that might be appropriate and wondered what other members have tried out.

My kids are 9 and 10 and we fish mainly for panfish, but also occasionally smallmouth and largemouth bass. I see Cabelas has some nice looking combos for $100 or less. Looked around at BassPro but the flyfishing selection in their Canadian store is pretty sad. Last time I checked their shipping costs were considerably higher than Cabelas as well.

Also, any recommendations as to rod wt/size would be appreciated. I was thinking something like a 4wt/7' rod but wasn't sure if that would be an easy setup for them to learn on.
