My son wanted primary colors in his room and this comforter set fits the bill perfectly. It's very soft, kind of silky, fabric and the pillow shams (full size has two shams) are soft enough to use for sleeping and everyday pillowcases. I purchased some orange polka dot sheets (sold on Overstock also) to complete the look and it's SO adorable! The dog that came with the set is cute, he has removable pajamas that match the bedding set; very sweet. I haven't washed the bedding yet, but I think it will hold up fine. Overall, a good value for the price.
