In brief: 60-130

Normal resting heart rate can be a wide range.
In children they typically can have resting heart rates in the 100's and is normal especially in infants. In adults it is usually 60-90, lower for those who exercise very regularly. Above 100 in an adult can be normal with exercise but if it is above 120 at rest it could be a sign of an abnormal rhythm that can be checked by you doctor.
