I bought this set for my daughter that started college August 2013. I saw this set on the Walmart web but thought the price was a little much for a twin size comforter set so I browsed Overstock and to my surprise I found this set. My daughter has washed the comforter at least 3 times now and it still looks good. She's received many compliments from friends regarding the emoticons. I think this set is perfect for teenagers.
