We bought this for our baby boy that we’re expecting in a couple weeks and it is absolutely wonderful. I was scared about washing it for the first time in fear that it would fade or shrink, but luckily, it looked good as new and we can’t wait for our baby to sleep in it. One thing to be cautious about is buying the valance. The bedding is mostly blue with hints of yellow and green, but the valance strangely is more of the green color and it just didn’t seem to “match” the bedding as well because that green just stood out more than I wanted. We couldn’t return it because it came as part of the package.
I had originally chosen another bedding set because it looked so cute on-line. If you have a Babies R US near you, I recommend checking out the sets in person. This one is truly outstanding and so much more attractive than the set I had liked before. The pattern is soothing and classy, with muted blues and yellows. There are several different materials on the quilt, which adds texture. Although quilts are not recommended in cribs, I throw mine over a rocker and it is a really nice addition to the baby’s room.The item I did not use is the valance. I personally found it a little busy and there was only one, when I have 2 windows in my baby’s room. Everything else in the set was used and I even bought an additional matching blanket.This set is wonderful for a boy or a girl. I knew I was having a boy and chose to go with this design since it will probably only be a couple of years before he will be asking for a room with the latest superhero or sports theme. Very sweet for a baby.
Great for a boy or girl
We’re having a girl, but know that we want more children. I hope to be able to use this set again for either. I like all the parts of this set EXCEPT the bumper that goes around the crib. It doesn’t seem to fit correctly where the two ends meet. One is a little short and the other is a little long. However, I talked to a friend who bought a different design by the same manufacturer and she said they are all the same in that respect. I had to modify the bumper a little – the reason for giving only 4 stars – but all in all, the design is very cute and looks like it will hold up well. Also, the pictures do not do it justice. The patchwork on the quilt, bumper, and valance look a lot better in person.
Nice design. Goes well with everything ( except bright red ). There are more cool additions for it in your local baby’s r us.If the sheet they included was 100% cotton, it would have been 5 stars.
I bought this for my baby boy 4 years ago and the blanket/fitted sheet still look like new, even after all the washings. I loved the colors and patterns, it’s what attracted me to this bedding set. It’s so adorable..I’m expecting a little girl now and if they had this in pink I would so get it for my baby girl, but sadly they don’t! Very good quality even after 4 years! =)
I just loved this pattern when I saw it & it looks even more adorable in my baby’s room! I had bought it before my son was born…we did not know what we were having so I wanted something “neutral” which this was. This is an adorable bedding set that can be for either boys or girls. I also love the quilt that comes with the set…it’s perfect size to put on our living room floor as a “playmat”.The only part of the set that I had no use for was the diaper bag. (I keep my son’s diapers under his changing table.)
