Character World Disney Princess Duvet Set
Advantages: Lovely design, Reversible, Perfect size, Washes well, Good quality
Disadvantages: No Rapunzel or Sleeping Beauty
I transformed my daughters Peppa Pig bedroom in to a 'grown up girls' Disney Princess bedroom about a year or two ago, upon request! The very last thing we bought for her bedroom was a duvet set as I wanted to keep her smaller sized toddler bed whilst she was trying to stay dry overnight. Once she was dry, we bought her a bigger sized single bed and a single bed sized duvet.
Character World specialise in children's furniture and feature many different popular characters on their products. They do a number of different Disney Princess duvet sets, our duvet set is slightly different to that pictured above. I bought my daughters Disney Princess duvet set from Sainsburys for £10.00 which I don't think is a bad price. I also saw it being sold in Wilkinsons, B&Q and Amazon for around the same price.
The set consists of a duvet cover and pillow case. The duvet cover is the size of a single sized duvet and I have no trouble fitting my daughters duvet inside. The duvet cover seals up with poppers, not buttons, which is a relief because I HATE buttons on duvet covers! The poppers are surprisingly strong and hardly ever pop open, even when my daughter has a particularly active night and decides to kick her covers all over the place! The pillow case is the size of an average pillow. My daughters pillow fits inside perfectly well, although there is plenty of space inside if I decide to get a bigger/plumper pillow.
The design is very pretty and my daughter loves it. The duvet set fits in very well with the rest of my daughters bedroom and she even has matching Character World Disney Princess curtains! The duvet cover and the pillow case are both reversible, so you can flip them over and choose which side you want to use. The pillow case has the same design on both sides but the duvet cover is slightly different. Neither me nor my daughter really have a favourite side, they're both nice.
The duvet is mainly light pink in colour but has a touch of light blue and some other pastel colours. On one side are large sized squares - some look like they are stitched on, some have spots in them and others have stripes in them. It also features buttons, hearts, flowers, bows, enchanted roses and glass slippers. Cinderella and Belle's faces make a repeated appearance along with the word 'Princess'. The other side is quite similar but has smaller sized squares which have polka dots, spots, checked print and hearts in them. The word 'Princess' features a few times in large writing and the words 'Perfect' and 'Princess' appear repeatedly in smaller writing. Belle and Cinderella appear on this side too.
The pillow case features Snow White in the centre with the word 'Princess' underneath. It has the same colour scheme and pattern as the duvet cover. There is also an apple in the corner.
The only downside is that there's no sign of Sleeping Beauty or Rapunzel, which are two of my daughters favourite princesses. She doesn't seem too fussed by this though.
I can't quite remember how long we have had the duvet set for but I think it's been over a year now. It seems like very good quality - we've had no problems with the duvet set and despite washing it every week, it's still in very good condition - no fading, bobbling etc. It's made from 100% polyester microfibre which is quite a thin material but this isn't a problem or a downside. The duvet set is machine washable (40 degree, inside out, no dark colours) and can be ironed (on reserve).
Overall, I'm happy to recommend the Character World Disney Princess Duvet set to all. It's pretty, fits in nicely with Princess (or just girly) bedrooms, is good quality, is reversible, washes well and is a perfect size for single duvets.
Summary: A Princess Perfect duvet set.
