Babble Best Kids Jackets of 2011Kids grow out of clothes so quickly it's almost a given that they'll need new items for their wardrobes as the seasons change. To help you out with the winter coat search, we picked the most sensible, stylish, and feature-packed jackets just for kids - some can even work for multiple seasons (if your kid doesn't hit a major growth spurt). Each category includes a range of sizes for boys and girls of all ages, but be sure to check our Readers' Choice section for even more of our favorites. We hope this saves you time on the racks this holiday shopping season! Love your kid's coat and don't see it listed? Tell us about it here! - Michelle Horton

The length of this inexpensive option extends its life as a lightweight coat: it’s casual enough for the playground, yet nice enough for going out. We like that there’s a zipper behind the cute toggles, ensuring extra warmth without sacrificing style. And while we also like that the jacket isn’t bulky, you will need to layer up – or swap for a heavier coat – once temperatures start to drop.
