Children's Savings Accounts

DD has a post office account but they withdrew the books last year I'd like to open her an account which we can make small regular payments into, she can pay her savings/Christmas/birthday money into and has either a passbook or internet access so that she can see her money grow.

Actually possibly two accounts - one which can't be got into easily and one which is instant access.

Any ideas? Recommendations? She's 8yo BTW.

my 2 have accounts at nationwide! We can access the money when we want and you get a book etc plus money box and colouring stuff when you open! DS loves the pouch the book goes in!

Nationwide accounts for all of mine. They seem to come out on top for most of the time as the best child accounts. No problems the kids can put in and take out (not that I encourage that yet) as little and as much as they need. Very happy with it! hth
