At first I was thinking of going the character route, especially since my son LOVES super heroes. So I was looking at Batman, Superman, Ironman, etc. bedding sets. But it just didn't complement the new bedroom set. Then I remembered Olive Kids. I decided to go there and check it out. I fell in love with the non-character selections for boys, with fun themes like Space, Cowboys, Pirates and more. I decided to buy the Ride 'em Twin Bedbox, because the cowboy print would surely complement his new room!
The Ride 'em Twin Bedbox set includes a fitted comforter, fitted sheet, straight sheet, bedskirt, pillowcase and sham. When it came in I realized that the bedskirt would not fit correctly his style of bed. Bummer. And the comforter, with its prefolded end, needs to be pushed down to fit on his bed correctly. It's called a "Hugger". It is reversible, with the other side being a red paisley pattern.
The sheetset fit wonderfully! It has wonderful cream color with red trim and a pattern of cowboys, cacti, covered wagons, and campfires decorating it. The pillowcase has a coordinating red paisley hem that is folded and sewn. And the sham was a red paisley pattern, perfectly complementing the sheets. The sheets are 100% Percale Cotton, 210 thread count.
When all is said and done, it looks fabulous! Just be aware if your child's bed sits directly in a boarded area - like bunk beds, you might have trouble too with the twin comforter and skirt.
Now, here is the kicker. When talking to Olive Kids they gave me a wonderful opportunity to review a personalized item from their shop, suggesting their new framed prints. I visited and thought the Ride 'em Cowboy print would truly complement his new bedding! In fact, you will find personalized prints to match all of their bedding - but it will also fit in wonderfully if you buy it by itself. They have mermaids, pirate ships, planes and more to choose from!
When it came in, with a black wooden frame, it had his name printed on it. It was such a surprise for him and looks great hanging in his room! The print is pretty big, measuring 18.5 x 24.5.
Honestly, I could go wild completely finishing his room with coordinating pieces, like draw pulls, throws, rugs, wallies and more. And with bedding sets in sizes from toddler to Queen, you can count on finding what you want in the size you need. (I was so annoyed when some of those character sets that I was considering prior only came in toddler or full! What about twin?)
Overall, the entire experience with Olive Kids has been wonderful and you can be sure I will be back to buy my second son's bedroom set, as well. This time I am thinking pirates!
