The color of the comforter is exactly as pictured but overall it seems rather dull. The sheets seemed to be nicer than the comforter which helped me decide to keep the set. Everything was washed before used and turned out alright. It should be noted that it is very light in weight.
Great set for the price. I bought this for my daughters first "Big Girl" bed. Is perfect for that and she loves it. My only complaint is that it is a little lower quality than I expected, but still great for the price. It is for a 2 1/2 year old so it will be changed before it wears out.
