Might as well get the java edition really. Java itself ain't that bad perse, but does have it issues. If you're kid is into modding, they'll be more fun to be had over at the java edition. The only real appeal to the windows edition is the vr, which was quite terrible really when I last used it. Windows 10 edition generally feels like a stripped down version of the java edition with the addition of native controller and vr support.
