What digital camera offers mostly physical controls?

I'd like to get my 9 year old daughter a new digital camera to call her own. She's had all my cast-offs from over the years but I noticed her favorite is a 2006-era Olympus with all physical controls. Are there any up-to-date pocket cameras with more physical dials than software menu systems?

After watching her take photos for years I think she likes the speed and ease of twisting a dial and immediately shooting. She hates having to dive into menus or use a touchscreen exclusively.
The old Olympis was great but used a weird battery and weirder XD memory card, so I'd like to get something newer and modern but I'm having trouble tracking down models and brands online that use more physical controls than software.
