    Bank Account for 12 Year Old

    Bank Account for 12 Year Old 4th Dec 11 at 10:43 PM
    Hello there,

    I am looking to open a bank account for my niece as part of her 12th birthday present. I want a current account so that I can put money into it and she can put her pocket and birthday money in, and she can learn about how to operate a bank account.

    It would be nice to have some cool features like a design your own card and maybe some freebies, discounts etc. I can't seem to find anything at all from the regular UK high street. I have found an HSBS account that pays a pitiful 0.5%, and that's about it. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Thanks for any tips offered - much appreciated.
