My 8 year old son loved his comforter set. The whole space theme is awesome! It doesn't glow as much as you think it would. You have to sit in the dark for quite some time to see it glow. The comforter is a bit rough, even after washing. I just use it to make the bed, for deco purposes, but most kids comforter sets feel the same. With that said, I wish they would lower the price a bit.
