This bedding is perfect for a boy or girl. The colors have a nice earthy-tone quality...they are not too bright or loud. Very soothing to look at but still stimulating for baby. The sheets have little monkeys on them (it's hard to tell from the picture). The Monkey is on several of the pieces but there is a good balance with usage of the other animals. Simply a must for anyone looking to go neutral but still have a fun theme to their nursery.
