The easy way to take the paint off is to soak it in DOT 3 brake fluid. Don't leave it in too long. Give it an hour or so to soak, scrub the loose paint off with a soft toothbrush, then repeat. When you have the part cleaned up, rinse with a lot of soapy water.
Note, the surface of the plastic might get etched a little, not much of a big deal if it is going to be painted again anyways.
I use this approach to strip model trains in prep for repainting, and have done it this way for years. The problem with real solvents is that it usually melts the plastic too.
Next mission...teach the kid to use an airbrush
Here'* one of mine that went through the brake fluid bath before repainting. As you can see, it doesn't effect the final finish.
