Buckinghamshire Building Society has unveiled a unique 100 day notice children's account which pays a market-leading variable rate.

Requiring a minimum investment of £1K, the Junior Saver 100 Day Notice Account offers a return of 3.00% yearly (2.80% monthly).

Additional investments are welcomed, up to the maximum investment of £10K.

However, with early access to funds not allowed, careful planning ahead will be necessary.

Only available to the under 18s, a free rucksack is the incentive for opening this account.

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars are in the bag.
