Do you want a bolt action, semi auto, lever action...etc? I'm a Marlin guy personally but since they've been bought by Remington they have terrible quality, so you would have to buy an older one. For semi auto I would say a Marlin 60 or 795, depending on whether you want a tube fed or magazine fed, and they can usually be found for around $100. For bolt action probably a Marlin 925. And my personal favorite, a lever action Marlin 39A. The 39A's are somewhat expensive but they are worth it. A couple years ago I bought a 1955 Marlin 39A "Mountie" (20" barrel and straight grip stock) for $325.

I like rugers 10-22 because there are all kinds of accessories to add to it so you can give it a cool tactical look and stuff.

Browning or Ruger 10-22 for semi auto. There are a few good single shots that work well for kids such as the Rossi or TC HotShot. I like the older Marlins a lot as well. My dad has a lever action Marlin from the 1970's and my brother has a bolt action Marlin from the1980s and both are great little .22s.

I've never seen a .22LR I didn't like. All the ones mentioned so far are excellent choices,
You may want to give the Mossberg 802 Plinkster a look and I want to mention the Henry Lever Action also.
Good Luck

For plinking maybe a Marlin model 60 or a Ruger 10/22.I have a great bolt action Savage 93bvss extremely accurate for hunting small game.
