You know where I find my son's comforter every morning? In a pile next to his bed. We long ago discarded the flat sheet. It was more of a tangle hazard than anything. What if I told you that your five year old could make his bed by himself every day? Comforter sheets and all. Sounds like a myth right?
That's what I thought too...
I was contacted by Easymake to try out their bedding that makes it super easy for kids to make their beds. How does it do that you may ask? Zippers. Zip the comforter to the flat sheet and the flat sheet to some panels on the fitted sheet and voila. Genius.
The panel holds the blanket and sheet in place as to avoid the aforementioned bedside pile in the morning. I don't know who was more excited to try it out me or my son. We put it through the ringer. Night after night of ninja sleeper. I swear I don't know what that kid does in his sleep, but it is crazy.
The first few nights the zipper was unzipping while he slept and the blanket would be disheveled or even off by morning. I was frustrated and even tried safety pinning it until I realized just today as I checked their site that we had put the bedding on upside down. The panels were supposed to be by his feet. Whoops! I felt a little better when I saw that the instructions on the website are more clear than those on the packaging.
As a sidenote there was also a flaw (shown above) on one of the panel zippers when it came out of the packaging.
So let's review...
Directions on packaging should be clearer like those on website
Quality control needs improvement (small tears in product)
Currently only comes in two colors
Comes apart easily for washing
Classic look (goes with lots of decor and age groups)
Kids can make their own beds!!!
Keeps blankets on the bed so they don't get cold in the middle of the night
If I do end up making it, it looks like this in less than a minute...
Now that I figured out what was going on I really do love it. It's fluffy and cozy for my little guy and sooo easy for me. It keeps the sheet and blanket together which is something I had given up on long ago. Hurrah for chore time slashed!
I received product and a stipend from Easymake for my time. The opinions are obviously mine.
