The bedding set comes with 3 pieces: the comforter, fitted sheet, and ruffle. The comforter feels light and soft. You can even breathe through it, which is good on a crib for a younger child. The pattern is distinctively pink, so definitely more appropriate for girls (unless you don't want to conform to "traditional" colors). One side feels slightly softer than the other. I like that the padding on the inside does not move around because there are stitches in the middle holding the padding in place. There is also a dark pink colored border around the comforter, which adds a nice touch. For washing, it asks for it to be washed in cold by itself, but I washed it with other clothes and it was fine. The material feels the same after washing. The crib sheet has the same material as the comforter, the side that is slightly tougher but it still feels soft. It is easy to put on the crib mattress because the stretchy part is so flexible. This is also designed with small pictures of flowers and birds. Overall, I do like the design, and the background is an off-white color. The dust ruffle is again of the pinkish color, which I like. These three items came packed in a plastic zipper bag, which I can re-use if I want to store them away for the future.
