I read other reviews before purchasing this bedding set. My son is wild about all things outer space, and the price was right for this set. As the other reviews have stated, the comforter, bedskirt and large pillow shams are pretty rough (this may get better with washing but ours have been washed twice and are still pretty rough). I was pleasantly surprised that the actual sheet set, the fitted and flat sheet and the two pillow cases that match the sheets are quite soft. These are the pieces that come in direct contact with the skin, and as I just mentioned they are snuggly soft. For the price, I feel that I got a good deal and my son loves his space themed room. (He hasn't even noticed that the comforter is rough).
I was a little hesitent on the fabric after reading the reviews, some had said it was rough. Well, most sheets are until you wash them the first time. After a good washing with fabric softner on the sheets they came out pretty soft. I'm very happy with the comforter sets, I bought two sets for bunkbeds and they look awesome! The bottom sheets were easy to put on, didn't have to pull very hard on the corners! The colors are very bright, I couldn't be more pleased.
I ordered this bed set for my four year old son. We are very much into the galaxy nowadays and this was the perfect addition to his room that already has the Solar System hanging from the ceiling. He could barely wait until I washed the sheets, wanted to sleep in them right away. The quality is good, especially for the price. The fabric is a bit stiff before washing, but is nice and soft after. I like that the sheets have a white background. The comforter is really nice, we found all the planets and got to discuss the difference between a space shuttle and a satellite. :-) I would recommend it.
I got this set for my son's new bed. He's 6 and wanted something "spacey". This set was far more colorful than all the Star Wars stuff, but didn't look like a baby. The sheets and comforter are a little scratchier than I would like, but a few washes with extra fabric softener really helped. The colors are vibrant and didn't fade with washing. This really is a great value and has a great look, especially the band at the bottom of the comforter.
I ordered this bedding set because my son wants a space theme in his new bedroom and the set was on sale and the picture online looked decent. It looks even better in person, I am very happy to say. The comforter is especially cool looking with all the bright colored planets on the dark background. We couldn't use the bed skirt because of the structure of my son's bed, so I took the star-field material off and made valances for his windows. He loves all of it, could not be happier. My son is 12 and gives this bedding a double thumbs up. The only thing I would change about it, if I could, would be to give it a higher thread count so it would be a little softer. I think a few washes will probably take care of softening it up anyway, but its always nice to have soft sheets.
I bought this for my boys room. We are doing a complete space theme. I am SO pleased. I love the deep blue color and the planets really pop. A great deal. The sheets are soft , the comforter is fluffy, and the bed skirt is nice quality. Just perfect. I ordered the 5x8 solar system rug to go with it. I will review that when we get it. It has a dark blue color with the planets as well. =0)
I bought this for my great nephew who was getting his first big boy bed. Was very pleased when I took it out of the package. My rating for comfort and fabric quality was based on the thread count for the sheets. Wish they had been a little better quality. Overall a great value for the price.
I bought this bedding for my son for his birthday. I haven't given it to him yet but I am very excited about it. I did show it to my oldest son and he was excited for his brother as well. The blanket has space stations and satellites and planets on it which will go perfect w/ the decor we already have in his room. I do wish the tread count on the sheets were higher.
