Well worth the price to bring a toddler bed from the baby stage to the big boy stage.
September 8, 2011
This is good, quality bedding that is well worth the price to bring a toddler bed from the baby stage to the big boy stage. My son loves his new bedding and I like that the quality of it will allow me to keep it for years to come and pass it on to my second bebĂ©.
ProsThe bedding comes in a reusable bag which is now storing some of my son's toys. My son currently sleeps in a toddler bed that was converted from a crib and this set fits it perfectly.
I washed the set in cold water and dried it using the tumble dry option. I washed only the bedding because I wasn't sure if the colors would run and ruin other clothing. The set came out of the wash in perfect condition and ready to go on the bed. The micro suede was not damaged in the wash or the dryer and two washes later, still looks perfect.
The fitted sheet fit my son's standard-size crib mattress to a T. The sheet runs a little long so it's nice to be able to fold it down a bit and show off the stripes on the end of it. The comforter is the perfect length and just wide enough to cover part of the sides of the bed. It makes the bed look less baby-ish thanks to the quality of the material. The sham and pillowcase fit a standard size pillow and really completes the look. I was worried that all the dark colors in this set would make his room look gloomy, but the colors turned out to be bold and vibrant so instead it makes his room look more polished.
ConsComes out of the washed wrinkled
Red and white panel on the flat sheet doesn't look as new after a few washes. The black, however, looks as great as it did the first time I washed it.
DO NOT mix the sheets with your lighter colored clothes. I accidentally mixed in a white shirt with the sheets and it came out stained black.
