If she is still on stabilisers, the first thing to do is get her up on 2 wheels, a 20" wheel bike with stabilisers is like a truck, will put her off.
To get her on 2 wheels, take the stabilisers and cranks off her outgrown bike, and get her to ride it as a "balance bike", ie. push along with the feet.
When she can ride, take her to a proper bike shop so she can try out bikes.
