I bought this duvet cover for my 3yr old daughter once her toddler size duvets started to get a bit small. It cost £15, so not the cheapest, but in line with the price of other character duvets.
The cover fits a single duvet well, and is very colorful and bright, fortunately even after several washes the colours have remained as bright. The cover, and pillowcase, which is included, are 100% cotton, and machine washable.
In terms of design, the pattern includes Peppa, as well as repeated images of hearts, flowers etc. The overall effect is pleasant, and not too busy. The fact that it is made up of several colored backgrounds also means that the duvet goes well in most rooms without clashing.
Overall I'd recommend this duvet cover for Peppa fans, but if your child isn't too worried about tv characters being on their bedding, you can get planner covers for around half the price.
Do you know who Peppa Pig is? If you have a child and you do not know who she is then where have you been? All we hear in our house is Peppa Pig this, Peppa Pig that! She is such a popular character I see her everywhere now, they are really cashing in on how many things they can make using this character!
Single Duvet Set
My daughter adores Peppa Pig. She loves watching the programme but now spends so much time not just watching Peppa Pig episodes but with playing with their merchandise as well. She has everything; clothes, toys, books, playing cards, pens and now this duvet set. When I saw that they made this I thought it looked like a great idea, she sometimes has a sulk about going to bed and tries to sneak out and into my room. I was hoping that having a Peppa Pig duvet would help her to stay in her own bed and enjoy it. It is a very bright duvet which is split into squares. In the squares there are various pictures such as flowers, hearts and Peppa herself. It is very pink! It fits a single bed really well so is ideal for little girls.
What I like
I like that it is Peppa. It's really easy to fit on the bed and it is nice and bright so cheers up the room. My daughter was delighted when she saw it! She is very giddy to sleep in the bed when this is on it.
What I don't like
Sadly, I dislike this more than I like it. I was very disappointed by the quality of it. My daughter sweats so much when this is on the bed which must be to do with the materials used. It also isn't a very soft material, it kind of grates against the skin and it would really irritate me! Also I think the pictures on the squares are not too good, the flowers and hearts are not really all that relevant to Peppa Pig, I think it would be nicer to have different characters in the squares instead to make it a lot more Peppa-Piggie!
This is a big disappointment. I was hoping for a lovely duvet that my daughter would love and I would enjoy putting on her bed. Sadly whenever we use this it needs washing almost after one night because it makes her so hot. It is a shame as it would have been lovely otherwise. The pictures could do with being a bit different too to make it that bit more relevant. I only put this on her bed now when we have no other options so it was really a waste of £15. I will not be buying character duvet sets again as I am sure the quality is hopeless on this and I feel disappointed in it so much. Definitely don't recommend. I have given 2 stars though because it is cheerful and my daughter does like it.

Last christmas I bought this for my daughter who was Peppa Pig mad, I managed to find it at £6.99 at Home Bargains which I thought was a brilliant price considering how much character duvet sets usually are, I have seen this being sold at £12 in Tesco so I know I certainly paid a good price.
The duvet cover was packaged in a plastic packet which was stuck down at one end so you could take it out the packet and have a feel of it if you wanted before buying it. Of course the set also includes a pillow case along with the quilt cover.
The quilt cover is quite thin and I would say that I have had many quilt covers and none of them have been this thin so it could be of better quality. The set is decorated with lots of small squares about 3 inches square and each square is in a pattern. The squares are based around the colours red, yellow, green and pink and the pictures are hearts, flowers, Peppa Pig, the words Peppa Pig and a butterfly.
The pictures on the quilt are all very bright and they are big bold pictures not too detailed, my daughter was thrilled when she opened this at christmas and she when I take it off her bed she is always asking me when it can go back on.
The only issue I have with this set is that the quilt seems to move within it quite a bit, it isn't too much of a problem as it just means giving the quilt a good shake on a morning and then it goes back into place. This is certainly a hit with my daughter and I am thrilled with the price I paid.
For the reaction of my daughter I would certainly buy character bedding again but would be more careful about getting better quality next time and then the quilt may not move so much.
