Got this today and my son is super excited about the shark toy and the design. The toy is great and puts a huge smile on his face, that is the only reason I gave this as many stars as I did. I should have noticed that it didn't come with sheets which I'm kind of glad it didn't as the material is very, very rough and scratchy. I thought it would soften up after washing, but it really didn't. What it did do after washing is fade and have some streaks where the color really faded. I only washed it in cold, so I wasn't expecting this. Overall, poor quality materials, but very cute design and nice toy. If my son is happy, ultimately, I am too, but I'm hopeful the material with soften with time.
Really disappointed in this - should have heeded the bad reviews. It lost most of its color after one washing. The comforters I have bought in the past from Target have held up way better and put this product to shame. It was even more disappointing for my son who was looking forward to shark themed bedroom. Don't waste your money on this.
After searching for a shark comforter for my son's bed, this one seemed to fit the color and price range I was looking at best. I read through many reviews and was nervous about placing the order; however, the set was better than I expected based on the reviews on various shopping sites. You are getting what you pay for - the quality isn't luxurious by any means but it is also not the worst. Both sides of the comforter were bright, clean colors. We use the shark side as that is what my son loves. The pillow cases would be my only complaint - they are fine color wise but could really use a button, zipper, velcro or something to help keep them closed. I would suggest using a nice "full" pillow to put in these cases as they run just a touch big. I sewed a few tabs of velcro on just so they would stay closed and not slip off as he is tossing them around the bed. The shark toy that comes with this is adorable. If you are looking for top quality, this set may not be for you; however, if you have a younger child and know this won't last for more than a few years, you should be satisfied. The comforter is light weight so I put another blanket underneath in the cooler months.
I would give FIVE stars for the shark pillow. It's well made a good size,soft and adorable! The bedding is just Eh... Washed it and it faded badly. I'm not impressed... Ended up getting my son new bedding with in three months because this bedding was so worn looking:( Still using the cute pillow though!
