Now that crib bumpers are a definite “no-no” for safety reasons, nursery decorations can feel a little ho-hum with just a regular sheet covering your baby’s crib mattress. Not anymore! The Skip Hop Treetop Friends Complete Sheet is the perfect answer to ensure safety for your child and a bright, decorative, engaging look in your nursery without a bumper! As part of a complete bumper-free bedding set, the innovative sheet itself is the main attraction. It’s got a different design on the top and the sides, with an engineered linen piping surrounding seam that keeps the top on top and the sides showing clearly around the mattress for a very finished look. It’s almost like your mattress has it’s own mini bumper; you get the look of an entire crib set with just one sheet!
The “Treetop Friends” design has a green and brown leaf design pattern on top and a colorful abstract forest design on the sides with trees, colorful leaves, birds and fruit. The colors are primary and would work well for either a girl or a boy’s room. The background is off-white and the neutral brown and green hues are very calming with just a few pops of bright orange and red. In my opinion, Skip Hop’s graphic designers have really good style! The sheet is made of 200 thread-count 100% cotton sateen, so it’s nice and soft without being too silky. It washes and dries well, doesn’t snag or pill up, and has stood up to a washings without losing any of it’s structure or fading at all. The Skip Hop Complete Sheet retails for $24 and also comes as part of a 4 piece set which includes the Complete Sheet plus an airflow wearable blanket, linen crib skirt and the softest nursery blanket all for $120. Other adorable designs are available as well.
