Kids bikes tyres

Hello gang,

our daughter is ready to graduate from her pushbike to a proper kids bike. We’ve inherited a 12“ specialized from my sister that is overall in good nick, but some parts need replacement. Can anyone recommend options for 12“ tyres (and tubes) or even know who makes these? Schwalbe seems to offer some options, but they don’t look convincing and at least some seem designed for strollers or prams. CRC stocks Vans kids BMX tyres that look okay, but not particularly suited for off-road use. Any other options out there?

Also the chain doesn’t look great, any recommendations for a light single speed chain?

Our kids bikes have all had Kenda tires. Never actually bought them as they’ve always come stock and never worn them out (which is a good sign!) but they seem decent enough.
