This item has some pluses and minuses. First, the other reviewer noted that the color is different than in the picture. It is somewhat lighter, but I would still describe the color as a bright turquoise-just not as bright or as dark as the photo indicates. The other thing I would note is that this is a very thin, lightweight comforter. Much thinner and more lightweight than I would expect in a comforter. That said, my child prefers not to have a heavy blanket or comforter. The pattern is cute, as depicted in the photo.
