It's a derailer guard.

sort of like Frame sliders for bicycles?
 

I guess it makes sense with the price of some High-end bicycle parts. 👍

And how kids treat their toys. 🙄

Thats actually a pretty lowend cheap derailleur but it is easily damaged when you throw the bike on the ground. In our day we road single speed coaster brake bikes at that age so the gearing was mostly bomb proof. Now days they are trying to sell kids mini versions of the high-end bikes so there is much more to go wrong. I am constantly fixing the neighbor kids bikes from the expected abuse they put them through.
