    Rollei Retro 100, or buy a bulk roll of Hp5+ and share it with her :-)

    Freestyle still has some Arista Premium 100 in 24 shot rolls. this is Plus-X or close. I wonder if a shorter roll will be better for an 8 year old? Quicker to move through the camera, easier to load on a reel. And it's a nice-looking film.

    Ilford FP4+. Very forgiving, easy to work with, not so grainy that you can't make a decent enlargement off of 35mm with it. Develops well in just about anything.

    I vote for Arista either 100 or 400. It is carried by Freestyle which is close to you and also does a big mail order business.

    A second on the bulk HP5 route: daughter gets to use some quality material at a reasonable price (with the requisite oversight, of course), and Dad gets to do some black and white shooting with the "leftovers" (hopefully).

    I feed my 6 year old son's Pentax point and shoot with ORWO UN54 that I cassette for him. This way he might only get 12 or 15 shots instead of 36 of the ants traveling over the pavement. We develop the film and paper in Caffenol which he loves helping to make by the spoonfull. This combination works well for us.

    The smaller films also mean faster end results with less waste. Though I have noticed the more my boy uses the camera the more care he takes in taking the picture.

    At that age does it really matter what film she uses?

    Thanks for all the feedback guys! Looks like there are still quite a lot being made! This is a good thing in my mind...not sure what I would find.
    I think I'll start with some of that Arista - that would be cool if it really was Kodak film still - I didn't know with the shake up at Kodak if they would be offering films to Freestyle anymore or what. That will probably be the best bet, because they are pretty close. Hollywood is a bit of a drive, but I think Kat would really enjoy going down there to see a "real" camera store! Might make for a fun Dad/daughter trip one of these weekends here.

    I like Artista EDU Ultra. It looks good souped in Xtol or HC-110 (B)

    The price is right too.
