Although this oval rug fits the spot, and is lovely soft colors, there are lots of little plastic strings, similar to the plastic stings you find holding tags to new garments, that are all over the rug. Some seem to be woven into the rug, and stick out as large foot catching loops, and have to be cut others are loose. Vacuuming doesn't clear them away and I am wondering if long term the rug willl fall away. I choose not to return it as I had already gotten rid of the packaging and don't want to pay the return shipping! I purchased this as a play rug for my daughter, so it has a shelf life of maybe 3-4 years however I would prefer to know it would last. Because of the colors and the value of size to $ I give this an average rating but the quality may not appeal to other uses.
