The color of this comforter is perfect! A bright magenta - perfect for my 4 year old's bed. It really is pretty with all the ruching. It's just really flimsy and I can tell the insides will be bunched within the first use. I don't even want to think what will happen when I wash it. I'm okay with it because it's for a little girl and I also have a quilt that will go over it, but if you're looking for a better quality item - something that will last more than a few years, then I would pay the extra money and get something with better quality. I'm a little disappointed, but hoping it holds up for at least a year or two.
