We got this set for my 3 year old for her first "big girl bed". It was a little pricey for a kids' bedding set, but I was hopeful it would last and the quality would be high. I was right. While I can't speak to its longevity (we've only had it about 2 weeks) the quality is just what I'd hoped for. The material is soft, the comforter is fluffy, and the colors are beautiful. My daughter loves it. I washed it as soon as we received it, and it came out of the dryer softer than before washing. I'ts not super warm, so you'll probably need another blanket on the bed during winter. But because of this it can be used all year long...not too warm for summer. The shams fit a standard pillow and are also soft and beautiful. The throw pillow is a nice addition. I'm very happy with this purchase.
