Nikon D40 for a child, too much camera?

I have a D40 that's sat unused for years, my starter camera ~12 years ago with a kit and 70-200mm lens. Resale value is such that i'd rather see it used and loved than profit from it's sell.

I don't have kids and live 2000mi from my neices and nephews so I don't see them much and don't know what's appropriate at what ages. Is this too much camera for a 7 year old or a perfect starter?

Canon PowerShot D30 Nikon D3 Nikon D4 Nikon D40 Pentax K-r
