All these pillows are used for is decoration porpoises so I didnt want to invest too much money onto them. I personally think the price was just right for what I got. I have had these pillows for over four years now, and they are still holding up for me. Its a little weird though, because one of the pillows has shrunk a bit? I know it sounds weird, but they used to be the same size, and somewhere down the line one of the pillows is slightly smaller. Its no big deal; they still work just as well.
