The PlayStation DualShock has kept the same shape for over 20 years, but it can be hard for kids to wrap their little hands around. So Hori has unveiled the Mini Wired Gamepad, a licensed controller for PS4 with a child-friendly form factor and a pocket-money price tag. 

The PlayStation 4 has plenty of games to keep the kids going, such as Knack 2, the Crash Bandicoot remake and an endless stream of Lego games. Hori says the Mini Wired Gamepad is 40% smaller than the standard DualShock 4, but it crams most of the usual buttons and sticks into that smaller, flat form factor. As the name suggests, the gamepad is connected to the console via a 3m wire. Some of the features lost are the touchpad, light bar, headphone jack, speaker, vibration and Six Axis motion sensor. Sony says that some of the touchpad inputs can be performed with the thumbsticks instead. Most of those features are nice-to-have and shaving off those frills has helped bring the price of the controller down.

The Mini Wired Gamepad will be available in the US and Canada just in time for the holiday season for a price tag of US $29.99.
