My daughter is very into elephants and we had a hard time finding a bedding set with an elephant design. This one is PERFECT. The comforter, sheets and pillows are of excellent quality and very soft. The comforter is light weight yet super warm. My daughter loves it. I would highly recommend it and the price can't be beat.
We bought this for my daughter about 6 months ago. I was impressed when opening the package at how many things I got for the price! Im not really a decorative pillow person but they were included so we use them. The sheets arent the best, they are soft, but they are kind of a silky material and they are big on her twin size mattress. We use a different set of sheets most of the time. But the comforter is really soft and has lasted so far even through multiple washings. I also utilized the sham ( what 2 year old needs a pillow sham ) as art. I cut an elephant off the front and back and glued them to a canvas. :)
I didn't really have high expectations of a 100% polyester bedding set, but my daughter was begging and it did look cute. I had bought a similar set at *** for my other daughter, and expected this one to be like that one, noisy shiny slippery polyester. But to my surprise, this set is really very nice. The sheets are very soft and don't have a slippery feel at all and actually are edged nicely and the flat sheet has white piping. The blanket also doesn't have that slippery polyester feel. All the pillows are really nice looking, and the colors as someone mentioned are muted rather than bright, all in all a very nice look. My daughter now sleeps on top of it all because she doesn't want to mess up her pretty bed. Neg: it did have a strange smell that took a while to dissipate- not a plasticky smell but something else. I haven't washed the blanket yet. The stitching is ok but some of the decorative stitching came off the elephant pillow.
I am disappointed in the synthetic feel of the sheets and their thinness. Upon receiving this set I washed the comforter according to instructions and when I went to make my daughter's bed noticed a faded spot on the blue side and lots of color running on the other side. Overstock is graciously refunding my money and I will be returning this product and trying something else. The number one reason for returns on this product is "colors bleed after one wash". I would not recommend this, too bad, it is super cute and seemed to have a good rating.
The comforter print is very cute and that was what made me fall in love with this set. We had no issues with color bleeding but the pillow case has snagged since the sheets are a very thin, summer-like material. Comforter is average thickness. I was upset Overstock.com wouldn't let me pay extra to have the item's shipping expedited because free shipping was a holiday deal. Overall, not a bad set for my toddler.
I love it! My 3 yr old daughter is so excited about it and absolutely loves it too! The quality matches the price. Love the decorative pillows as well as all the colors! And the fact that it's not real girly all pink etc... also that it's not a cartoon character like Dora or Sofia! It'll last a long time rather then a year since it's not so childish.
I ordered this for my toddler when we switched her to a regular bed. We bought the full size, and I couldn't be happier with this set. It arrived fairly quickly and included everything that I was expecting. The print is adorable and looks great on either side (since it's reversible). I read the reviews before I bought it, and was a tad nervous about washing it since I read that the colors might run. But I followed the directions and washed it accordingly, and I had no issues! Even the sheets are very soft. I am very pleased with the value and the look of all of the pieces. Very cute!
My teenage daughter found this set and loves it. She's been collecting elephants her whole life so this pattern is great, she thinks it's cute but not too childish. She loves the reversible options of the spread and pillows. We plan to take the focus off the pink by accessorizing and painting things Windsor blue. The sheet set is not as bad as expected after reading other reviews. If it doesn't wash well I'll add to my review.
