Hi, I am looking for a winter coat for my 4 1/2 year old DD. I would like something similar to an old fashioned duffel coat but haven't been able to find anything suitable so far.

Has anyone found anything similar? Cheers.

I buy the dd the Boden funky duffle every year - it's unbeatable!

Thanks for messages, I did see the Boden duffel and although it has good reviews it also has a couple that said the material was very poor quality for the price. If you are spending around £50 it needs be good quality!

Will check out Ebay and Monsoon. Cheers!

Don't spend too much - he will probably refuse to wear it! In my experience, children will ONLY wear their winter coats on the hottest day of the year, or inside, or at any time or anywhere except on the freezing cold frosty morning you try to get them into it, when they will want to wear a sun hat and a short sleeved t shirt because "It's not cold, mummy - look, it's really sunny!"

M&S may have some reasonably priced ones - I got one for DS last summer (forward planning in the sale!) and it's great quality
