Starting a bank account for your child, what age?

My son is very interested in starting a savings account. He wants to put his money in and let it grow, haha. His words! I'm thinking ten is a bit young to start an account though.

At what age would you start a bank account for your child?

    My grandparents started one for me when I was a baby. We started accounts for our children when they were under five. Banks want children to open accounts and there is usually no minimums.
      We have talked about opening an account once the baby is born and putting money in it instead of buying lots of gifts for birthdays and holidays. Granted he will still get gifts, but helping him to save and a start early will be a better step to his future.
