Good bedding for children can be hard to come by as the really good stuff may be more money than you want to spend and the cheaper products may not last long enough to make it worthwhile even purchasing it. Young children can be hard on bedding as they have accidents and other things happen. Frequent laundering of the sheets and even of the comforter can leave them in poor shape fairly quickly.
If you find you need to go the cheaper route than it may be wise to try and find bedding that matches your child’s interests and will also serve to entertain him and brighten up his room, if only for a little while. Dinosaur bedding, covered in pictures of fierce dinosaurs is a good, fun choice along with all of the other Disney-themed choices out there and even sports teams. Sometimes you end paying more for the decoration than for the bedding itself, so if this bedding is only going to last for a year or two than smart shopping will be necessary to find the best deal out there.
The dinosaur bedding sets seem to wax and wane in popularity depending on which movies or television shows are popular at the time and the same is true of character-themed bedding. New cartoon or movie characters come out all of the time and the hottest item can easily be the lamest in six months time.
Bedding for kids is probably best made out of a cotton/poly blend. They will launder easier and dry faster and even though the colors may fade, it will probably time for a new favorite character by the time the old one fades into oblivion. Comforter are the same way as they too can get laundered, more frequently than other bedding and may have problems with the filling not staying place or shifting to one end or the other after repeated washings. Do your best and buy for the next six months as your child’s interests will change and they may even grow out of some of them.
