The comforter is not as fluffy as it looks in the picture; it's thin and I have a feeling that the poly-fill inside will wear out pretty fast. My daughter (5 yrs. old) loves it, though. And it suits her needs just fine. Kids will tear things up so we'll just end up getting another one. Her little sister spilled some water on it a week after we bought it and it unexpectedly left a dark mark on it. The colors are bright and identical to the pictures and the pillows are soft and fluffy. The fabric on the pillow covers is pretty flimsy.
