Love the bedding, with a few minor exceptions
February 1, 2013
I purchased the toddler bedding set. At the price and all it contained I was happy with the ratio, along with the beautiful design. I was a little bummed about how long it took to get to me. The confirmation said it would be 2 weeks from my order date, but it came 3 days early. yay! The bedding itself is very nice visually. The colors are vibrant and match the pictures. It isn't one of those things where you get it and the colors look completely different. My daughter loves it, and so do I.
I didn't give 5 stars because I have a couple of small qualms. First, the comforter, while beautiful, is not as full and fluffy as it appears online. It is a bit flat and not as warm looking as I thought it would be from the pictures. If we lived somewhere that was much colder I would probably need a more insulated blanket between the sheet and comforter.
I bought an extra sheet set for when I am washing one. The title of it read Madison Fitted Crib Sheet for Baby Toddler Bedding Sets. *I* thought that the 'toddler bedding set' part meant they would send a fitted and flat sheet. It just made sense to me. If I were ordering the crib stuff I would assume just a fitted sheet would come. Not the case. I only got a fitted sheet for $19. I'm not very happy about that, and while it isn't the end of the world I plan on calling to see if I can get a flat sheet that matches the extra that I got so I can wash a set and still have one on her bed. Also, the sheets are pretty stiff. Not that I was expecting some luxurious 1000 thread count Egyptian cotton or anything, but just be prepared. Also, the flat sheet does not have the design on both sides. It is only on one side and the other side is a bit ugly, but again, it's not like anyone will really see that side since it will be up against the comforter. Like I said, these things are minor, but they were small things that surprised me when I opened the bag
lastly, I ordered the bed skirt because it is not included in the 5 piece set. Well, the short edge on one end does not have the frilly skirt part. It is just left open. If I had known that, I would have ordered the crib one. I am not using this on a 'toddler bed', I converted my daughters crib to the day bed option. So the right side of the crib has no 'skirt' part on it. I'm going to call and see if I can exchange for the crib skirt. I haven't even looked to see if that's an option actually. I put the part with no skirt on the side of the bed that faces away from the door you walk in. I don't think anyone will notice except maybe my mother in law. (haha!).
Other than those few things, the bedding is great. I really am satisfied with the quality overall. There aren't many options out there for toddler bedding.
Prosbeautiful, good quality, good bedding for the price
Consno extra flat sheet when I ordered extra sheets, comforter a bit thin, stiff sheets, patterned flat sheet only has pattern on one side
