Yamaha NP-31

I have a Baldwin model R in my living room and my granddaughter (age 5) has expressed an interest in learning to play. So when she came out we would have a "lesson" where she mostly just made up her own songs. At one point she said that if she had a piano at her house she could practice more, so I bought this on for her to use.

It's relatively inexpensive new, it only has 77 keys but for the granddaughter I felt that was enough to learn on. It's touch sensitive, one of my basic requirements, but the volume does not vary as much in response to the force of striking the keys as a real piano. Also there is a big difference in the feel of the keys from the front to the back of the key, it seems to be harder to strike the keys toward the back of the keys. It does have a nice sound and for an inexpensive keyboard, it is quite adequate.

Can anyone tell me is it suitable for beginners? I have two options; one of them is yamaha np31 and the other one is casio px 150. This will be my first time so I neend suggestion I am confused.
As they are not touch weighted no if you are going to buy a Keyboard to learn Piano on you need touch weighted keys so it feels like a real piano
