I was playing with my daughter yesterday and we both started complaining about wrist and thumb pain after playing with these huge controllers. Is there a smaller controller for small hands for the XBox 360? Wireless?

Thanks in advance.

It looks like your best bet is the MadCatz Microcon. Unfortunately it isn't wireless, but maybe a USB extension cord would work. Also it's not very easy to find since it is over 5 years old, apparently being released when the 360 originally came out. Here's a good review by IGN:

Thanks. That one will definitely work but I spent all afternoon yesterday looking for one and couldn't find it. It looks like they stopped making them. :(

That one is a different model and it's similar in size as the original. The small one is model: MOV-547360. Thanks.

Yep, that's what I saw yesterday. They're all sold out. :( That controller would be perfect for her because it's really small.

I remember the original Xbox controllers. I absolutely HATED those things. I couldn't believe that after all the R&D they did that THAT was what they came up with. I don't know what compelled them to use the Dreamcast controller as a model, but thank God they modified it and kept that style with the 360.
