“ Brand: Matalan / Product Type: Bedding Set „
We recently bought some items to make our youngest daughters room a bit more of a childs room rather than a baby room which was the feel it had to it. She loves Minnie Mouse so we bought accessories to make her room a Minnie Mouse theme and even though she already had a Minnie Mouse bed cover Matalan had a 3 for 2 offer on so we ended up with this as our free item. The set should have costs £14 which seems to be about an average price for a character duvet set.
The duvet cover is a single and came with one pillowcase, the set came packaged in a plastic wrapper which had a small cardboard insert in it with simply the producers details on it and told me that it is machine washable and should be washed before first use.
The set has a really girly look to it although there is nothing to say a boy couldn't use it, the background of the cover is pink, it's a lovely mid pink colour. There is a picture of Minnie Mouse posing down the left hand side as you look at it and then I love with a heart for the love across the top and the word Minnie is written down the right hand side of the cover, we lose the writing as this is the edge that gets tucked down the side of the wall. The writing for the word Minnie has each different letter in a different colour and pattern which is a nice little extra to the design in my opinion.
The pillowcase is the same pink colour and has Minnie Mouse's head with the word Minnie curved around her head in the bottom right hand corner, I think the pillowcase is really cute and Emily likes to lay her Minnie Mouse soft toy so that it's head is on Minnie's head on the pillow!
The cover washes well and it didn't run even the first time it was washed which is great, I always use a colour catcher the first time I wash something then that way I know if it has ran or not. The cover doesn't need ironing aslong as you hang it up as soon as it is finished washing, I dry ours over the banister where there is plenty of room so it can dry flat.
Emily loves her duvet cover and she loves her room but then if someone gave her a piece of rubbish with Minnie Mouse on i'm sure she would love it! I would recommend this set, I find it brightens up my daughters room and as she is in a box room things have to be light, it is a decent price, it washes well and looks cute.
