I dont know about the mount itself, but its important to have stud in the wall and the right type of anchors and screws! With an expensive TV that weighs that much and a little kid it may be worth hiring someone to do it securely (assuming you two havent done it before)

I don’t have much info as our tv currently sits on our mantel, but I’m commenting so I can track back for ideas to get it OFF our mantel!

Agreed, pretty much any wall mount that is rated for the size and weight of your tv will do.  All you have to do is make sure to secure it to a stud.  It looks like those kits come with drywall screws, but theres no way in hell I’d mount my tv to just drywall.  Secure it to a stud with at least 2.5 inch wood screws and it’d be strong enough for both of you and then some to hang off it.

Ours is mounted but we had it done professionally. I highly suggest going this route; there’s too much room for error if not done correctly. Are you also going to be rerouting the wire through the wall so it just doesn’t hang down from the tv? This is also something I wouldn’t go cheap on, you want a quality one. There are universal mounts that can hold various sizes and yes some swivel but we never moved ours bc it wasn’t needed. Good luck!
