I decided to review this because it seems almost all children's bedding is only made for single beds. This is an absolutely lovely set, that funny enough is on my bed at the moment! the reason is that my sons have Thomas the Tank Chairs That can fit at the top of my bed. We often all sit up on my bed to watch DVD's, or just to listen to stories. This duvet also gets trailed down stairs all the time so we can all cuddle up on the settee to read books or watch the telly.
As you can see by the photo, the bed set features Thomas the Tank, who I am sure everyone is familiar with.
Thomas is a favourite with both boys and girls, and his bright and cheery face is even attractive to babies I think. Thomas is pictured in star shaped frames on a deep blue background with a very bright green design making up the characters T1.
This bed set consists of two printed pillowcases and the duvet cover, which is the same design on both sides. the material is a 50/50 blend of cotton and polyester. When I first bought this bed set I was terribly impressed with the fabric as I found it a bit stiff, but this is often the case with new bedding. It is also very thick which has been handy. Because this bed set is trailed up and down the stairs, and the children will sit curled up in this while the house warms up in the mornings, often eating breakfast or snacks, it has been washed countless times in the 8 months or so we have owned it. Frequent washing has made this a bit softer, but the colours still look as bright and vibrant as the day we bought it, and it still has the look and feel of a new bed set. At this rate I would expect this bedding to last until well past the age when my boys are willing to have anything with Thomas the Tank!
The current price is almost £21 by the time you add postage costs. This is a fair amount more than I paid from ebay, but I still think quite reasonable considering the quality of the item, and the fact that you do pay extra for character designs such as this. I would really recommend this for anyone whose child has a double bed, or just enjoys a larger blanket to cuddle up in.
