Unless you have a killer demo I would not do a lite version. Simply cutting the full version down is not good enough. You must have something that instantly hooks the player and then compels them to buy your game.

Define "killer demo" for a children's game
You did notice that here the person who gets hooked and the person who buys it are/should be two different ones?
