I needed a fun rug for my daughters room and we decided on this zebra print. We did'nt want to get something so expensive since it needs to stand up to a tough 7 year old! I think its a great buy. The rug is very soft and not very thick where my daughter can trip over. The major benefit is its a no fuss rug. It does not shed like the wool rug in my living room and the construction looks durable. I am even considering getting one for my den as well!
