Nikon 55-200 VR2 or 55-300VR ?

My 9 years old daughter wants a longer lens than her current 18-105VR. My lenses are too big and heavy for her so I really can't loan them.

I've been thinking of 55-200VR mk2 since it is even lighter than her current lens. Would you think she'd be happy with the image quality? The 55-300 has even worse IQ, I believe, but the AF-S 70-300VR while having a decent (but not stellar) IQ is rather big and heavy for a child. Her camera is not compatible with AF-P lenses.

So what I'm asking is whether anybody ever has been even mildly content with the AF-S 55-200VR mk2 image quality, or should I look elsewhere?
