D3200 kit with 2 lens for $500 or D3300 one lens for $650

Was looking to buy the D3300 for my daughters first camera.  She is headed to Germany in 2 months.  A small point and shoot did not yield her great results when she went to London.

I do not see her photography advancing to anything other than newbie.  The long term attractiveness of the d3200 kit is the second lens.  She is a newbie and has shot a roommates older d3100 without issue and likes it in her small hand.

Would there be too much of a trade off, not buying the newer d3300 model, to opt for the 2 lens older model kit?  She WILL NOT be taking the 55-200 on the trip.  Any know mechanical issues with the D3200?
