A request for clarification here. Are you looking for keyboards designed 
for small children, or for keyboards and devices with keyboards that 
meet your size specs?

One I remember from c. 1981 was the Panasonic HHC. Here's a link 
''. Search 
'Panasonic HHC' or '1400' and you'll find several.

The machine was 95 x 227 mm. As there were five rows of keys taking up 
most of the height,  I'd guess about 12mm pitch.
