Three years ago, I bought this basket. It was absolutely beautiful! It had a pink and white toile liner & bedding with a pink gingham blanket. This style has been discontinued. For some reason, Badger has decided to replace their beautiful liners and bedding of the past with inferior, unattractive ones. They have also added on ugly bows. (Ribbon wound around the hood and sides.)
The ribbon is extremely cheap and flimsy. Takes away from the WHOLE effect of the basket. In some other reviews I have read, people are
just buying the basket and threading their own ribbon, as well as buying their own bedding. The sad part is, Badger is one of the FEW companies that sells a Moses basket WITH HOOD. This is a very "sought after" feature. As I was so happy with the last basket, I decided to buy another one! It was pictured online as pink gingham with
a white ruffle. When it arrived, the ruffle and bedsheet were actually lavender and DID NOT MATCH! Looked terrible with the pink and white gingham liner!
I saw another one in Babies R Us in the sage color. It too, had the lavender ruffle & sheet
that DID NOT MATCH. The ribbon on the basket was already shredding. The liner only stays in the basket if it is tied on with the flimsy ribbon. In the past, the basket liners were made with elastic that simply pulled down over the sides
of the basket. This was such a beautiful product...now it looks very trashy. BADGER...get rid of the ribbon & bring back the beautiful liners you had three years ago! This basket is still a good buy...a great price, but it needs to be stripped down & have the junky materials replaced. I personally decided to return this basket and have purchased one with a pink & white toile liner (Tadpole brand) like the one I had from Badger three years ago. It cost a little more & doesn't have a hood, but I would be embarrassed to give the Badger one as a gift without "refurbishing" it!
