I'll second the CZ Scout. Savage Rascal a good alternative
I don't care for the Chipmonk's extra safety. It actually makes it harder to safely unload.
The Scout comes (new) with a single shot adapter, but you can use the 5 round or acquire a 10-round magazine. It uses the same mags as any of the adult CZ 452s or 455s. On a bolt-action, I am not worried about it running away from the shooter, so I think a single-shot is not necessary.
The Rascal comes with a great peep sight and is drilled and tapped for scope mounts if that's your pleasure. Also comes in kid-friendly colors. I didn't want that, though. I wanted it to look like a 'real' rifle. Not a toy. I can dig wanting to maximize the kid appeal.
