Since this was a gift and sent to my grandson, I give it 5 stars for the happiness it created. There have been compliments and oooooo's and ahhhhhhhhs.. Nothing was said about the quality. I could assume it is soft and felt good to Max. He would be its worse critic if it diddn't work for him.
Overall, the set is good. My son loves it and that's what counts. This is his first "big boy" bed set, and it makes him feel special. The comforter and sheets have a soft feel to the, and the colors and graphics and bright and fun. The comforter is a lighter weight than I prefer.
