The Love print is so simple and classic, but I also love the Sunshine print for its uniqueness.
I love the Monster print and the sunshine print bedding sets. My little boy would go crazy for them.
The monster print is cute, but I LOVE the Sunshine print... I am really loving yellow as of late, as is my little toddler. That would be a great fit for the big girl bed coming soon!
I am in love with the Love print shet set. It is adorable for kids, teens and adults!
I love the sunshine! They're perfect for my 5 year old AND 15 year old girls!
love sunshine and action
Love the Love! My little girl would adore the colors!
I dig all of them! Seriously, so cool... but my favorite would be the Monster. The growth chart is hilarious. Of course, my daughter would be hard pressed to choose between the Love and Beauty.
I adore the "love" design! I think my daughter would go crazy for it. The monster and action designs are a close second and third.
My little "musician" would love the Sunshine set! Very unique!
The Friendly Monster print is so great -- it reminds me of the prince in the Katamari games -- love it!!!
Its so hard to choose! I guess I will go with Sunshine since yellow is mine and my sons fave color! But I also LOVE the Action or Monster for him! He thinks hes a Superhero, and he's really a MONSTER! LOL!
I'm especially thrilled with the modern designs for boy's rooms! Sunshine and Action are my faves.
I love the Love design...and so would my daughter!! The colors would definitely help make her room girly! (Her room currently is a neutral design since we weren't sure what we were having...the pink would help!). :)
Love is so sweet and simple. I love Love
we just got my daughter a bed. so this would be perfect. the love pattern
Monster for this family of little monsters. I love the color green and my boys would go crazy for this print.
My little man would love the little monster!
Well the LOVE print gets my attention the most with it brilliant colour! I also adore the BEAUTY set because it is so retro and I'm all about retro!!
I love the love print, but the monster print is my secret favorite. We have enough monster problems already though!
I like the action print best for my middle child. It just looks like his personality. Beautiful and cool, yet vibrant and energetic.
Action is my personal fave, for it's my son's trademark. He's a dynamo when awake, always up to some mischief or some activity and he's lightning quick too. Which is why this set seems to befitting!
I LOVE the Beauty one because its so girly that it screams my daughter's name, but I also love the
I like Sunshine
I have a girly girl in my house so the beauty print would be our favorite.
Hello, How fun is this bedding! As a kid, I had boring bedding! I like the "Action" design! I like the colors. Thanks,Cindi
I love the monster print! It would be great for us because the first thing my son knew how to do when he was growing up was growl like a monster. You'd ask him what a monster says and he start growling. I also think the sunshine pattern is great. I could use it for my son now and pass it down to my daughter...hopefully!
I like the Love print...perfect for my Little Beauty! My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org. My web URL is http://metropolitanmama.blogspot.com.
Love the sunshine set. So cute!
I also love the Love bed set. It's very feminine and it's not too babyish so it could work as my daughter gets a little bigger too!
Monsters ON the bed!
I like the love and the action prints. The hearts and lightning bolts look great.
Oh, I like Action and Sunshine.
I love the red with the hearts, perfect for my little princess.
I love the monster set. My son has such a fascination with monsters but is fearful of them. This one is so sweet-looking, I think it would allow him to see that monsters aren't so scary. Its a great design!
The Sunshine bed set. He would love the words and letters.
I love the Love set. It's all girl! Just like my daughter!
They are all very cool, but I think I like the Monster print the best. It reminds me so much of my youngest running around with his arms in the air, which is how he spends 50% of a typical day, lol!
I would have to say the Monsters print because oddly enough....The little man LOVES monsters! Go figure? Only my child! LOL! He would think this was TOO cool on his bed! I also love the Action...Heck, who am I kidding? The ALL Rock! Thanks for the chance to win!
For my 9 y.o., Sunshine is my favorite because the yellow is cheery like my daughter.
I love the Sunshine print because it could work in almost any type of room without dominating the other designs in the room.
I like the Love design for my girly girl, and the Monster design for my little guy. :0) ( meg dot wilson at gmail dot com )
i just LOVE that monster print!! oh wow, just so cute.
I think my son would love the monster print, but I like the love one for my daughter.
I like the Love print- so great for a girl!
We love hearts so it would be the Love print.
I love the monster print--none of my kids will be scared of monsters!
I don't know if I love the Beauty or Sunshine print more. Either way, it should make for some sweet dreams! We are moving my daughter into a big girl bed and this bedding to too darn cute to pass up.
I really like the monster print because its so hard to find boy prints that aren't trucks or cowboys, etc.
my grandchildren would like the monster print because they are boys, me I'd like the love because its pink
The sunshine is for sure my favorite!!! Thanks...
I love the monster bedding. It's just so dang cute! If I were to win a bedding set, though, I'd probably get something girly like the love set for my girls.
The love one is too cute but the sunshine one is great, too! :)
I love the monsters. Just because they're awesome and my son is one!

I can picture either action or monster in my little guy's room.. The colors are great as well as the design...
I love them ALL! If only given one choice I'd pick the Love hearts because everyone could use more love in their life. Besides, I'm starting to think about Valentine's Day:)
Personally, I like the Monsters utility bag...it would make an interesting conversation piece. I know a little girl who would love anything with hearts on it. :-)
I love the "Beauty" print...very retro and stylin
"Monster" is absolutely my favorite because it is funny, modern and unusual -- plus my son would love it!
Love is my favorite for my daughter and monster for my boys!
I like the LOVE and MONSTER designs.
I prefer love hearts from all of the avalable choices
The monsters (which kind of look like monkeys).
The Action set would look GREAT in my son's bedroom. And I think "Action" may be his unofficial middle name!
The action is kinda Harry Potterish so that is my pick.
without a doubt the sunshine print. i call my 2 1/2 year old my sunshine guy because he is always smiley and full of life. plus i love yellow. it makes me think happy!
oops i forgot...my email is
I have to little girls. I'm going with the Beauty. Although there all cute.
I love the LOVE print because it is simple, sweet and girly.
The monster print is the coolest. And it is green...my son's favorite color.
It is a total toss up between the LOVE print and the MONSTER print. They are both beautiful and sweet and fun and my daughter would love either of them. She is funny like that!
My daughter will love the Love print.
Since I just redid Terri Jades room pink I am gonna definitley go with the Love set! Too cute! But I must say that the friendly monsters is SCREAMING at me for Masons bunk bed! :-D
I truly love the monster set in this line. The little green guys look just like my kids way too early in the morning. We are woken up by them everyday as they jump on top of one another with their huge ear-to-ear smiles .
I love the action print - so bright and cheerful!
The Monster set is the best. Little Monsters was my theme for the baby shower I had when I had my son. You can never find cool stuff like that around here. We had to make our own decorations.
my girls would love the Love and Beauty. Love is my favorite (Of course action is really cool)
The Monster print reminds me of the cheesy cartoons I used to watch mostly the clips they had on the Banana Splits Show...
I like the Love print, because its hearts, pink, and girlie!
I love the LOVE set!
I really love the green set with the little monsters or monkeys on them. Why because they would be perfect for my little monster/monkey's bedroom.
I LOVE the Love print set because I think it's cute and colorful, and I like the heart print.
The Love sheet set is SO cute. I love that the design is so simple yet so cute.
I love the Beauty set!
I think my boys would like the monster print. Their room is this exact color already, so it would work perfect!! Thanks for the opportunity.
The love print in nice!
I love the Action print. The color is wonderful and it would be great for boys from toddler age on up.
i love the sunshine print, and since that is our dd nickname it is perfect!
That sunshine one ROCKS! It so screams my girls whose favorite thing to do is pretend they are rock stars. Yellow is such a fun bright color too. Some thing we need when it is dark out at 5:00.
My daughter would love the heart print. She loves pink and hearts! This has both:)
The hearts print is my favorite:) My daughter is a "heart baby" (open heart surgery) and we try and keep hearts always in the house - as much as we can. But, all the prints are fantastic!
Action! It reminds me of '80s Conrans and Marimekko prints, but with more energy and motion. Very cool. Maybe it would convince my son to sleep in his own room?
My angel would love the print with the purse, mirror etc. She's such a princess, such a girl. That's her styl all the way. I'd love to be able to give this to her. Great Job on the prints. Happy New Year and Good luck everyone!
The Love and Beauty print are so my little girl. She would love it...and with a new baby on the way...this would make a perfect suprise for the new big sister...My blog is janibraskasdailytreasures.blogspot.com, email: email@example.com
I love the musical words one. A love books and rhythm, what could be a better match?
I think they're all super cute, especially the Love and Beauty. But the other ones are all great too. Who doesn't love lightning bolts?
I like the Monster print! I love this stuff!
Action! Seems the best design for an active little guy=) firstname.lastname@example.org
Action and Monster would be the best for any little boy. I think I could actually get a few years out of either before I had to change them too!
I love the Monster, but since I am a rock star the sunshine one is cool!
I love that sunshine print!
The Monster kideko print is my favorite because my son is always acting like a monster and scaring his little brother. He has a thing for monsters!
I like the ACTION print's bright colors, but I think the ROCK print has a more soothing color. So while "action" certainly describes our boy, I think we'd rather he rock out when it comes to sleeping...
i'm not here for the giveaway, i just wanted to say - nice prints!
LOVE the hearts! My daughter would love them too!!
yay! i'm so glad you pals love these prints as much as i do!
I Love the Love set! So girly and sweet!
To cute, would love it.
I love that monster print bedding and poster! It's one of my fav colors, green! And my son would really get a kick out of it.
Wow these are very nice bedding sets, my favourites are the action and monster sets. I like the designs on them, I am planning on putting my son in a big boys bed very soon so I would love to win one of these sets.
What a great site... With 7 grandkids, its hard to choose. I love the SUNSHINE set as it is good for both girls and boys. But the LOVE set wins the heart of my little princesses,e specially with valentines coming up. Whats really great is that each includes a quilt cover, so it can be used not only at home, but its a great set in a bag that can easily go along on trips to grandma's house or slumber parties! thanks. cathy b
whoops forgot to leave my email... most of the time i post on blogs it automatically is included... sorry... its email@example.com cathy b
I really like the Action print! I love the contrasting blues!
The monster design reminds me of monkeys jumping on the bed. Perfect for my own little monter/monkey!
I love the love print sheet set! So sweet :)
I love the LOVE bedding set and the Sunshine set!
I like the LOVE set!
love the "Sunshine" print! What could possibly be better than yellow this season and the graphic design on it just puts it over the top, besides I have a budding sax/guitar player son in the house!
I love Sunshine and Monster , its nice to see children's designs that are colorful and bright that do not rely on comic characters of disney
I can't decide! I love 3 of the designs. Love, beauty and sunshine. I would love to win any of these for my little girl
Monster for my little monster.
I love the lightning bolt print for its non-cartoony style. Its something I would buy for my son or to use as a fun quilt backing. Yum! THanks for turning me on to a new source of loveliness.
(There's a contact form for you to use to email me)
I really like the Action bedding set. It's perfect for a little boy!
Am crushing on monster. It is so cute and whimsical and the colors are rad. Great for boys or girls. Or me! Love it!
Love the love and sunshine prints. Thanks!
If I were to pick a print, I'd go for the Beauty set no doubt, only because I'm a girly girl and I would love to think that my little Sofiedove is a Girly Girl too :) If SHE were to pick, she'd pick the green monsters....1. her favorite color of all time (blue close second), and her new thing to do it watch Monsters Inc., and make monster noises to strangers in the grocery isle. I have to dress her in pink all the time so people don't think she's a yellie 3 yr old boy. Plus it'd go great on her new big girl bed I'm buying next week with her green walls!
For my daughter I'd pick the Sunshine set, because she really is a little ray of joy (but wild, truly wild!) If my son were older I'd get him the Monster set just 'cause I like it so much!
The Beauty Bed Set!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is so darling and it reminds me of the types of styles I strive for in my art work. I love the pink and orange together, and how the beauty products are designed. It looks so dainty!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It makes me think of when little children put on high heels and lipsticks.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE the beauty print, second would be the monster print. So adorable!
I'm digging the Sunshine print because my little guy is a happy little man and the mellow yellow color and words on the print truly match his personality. The Monster print is a close second though because he giggles when he sees pictures of monsters.
It is hard to pick just one favorite- I really like the Sunshine print and the Monsters, both are adorable!
I honestly like them all. I like the lighting bolt and the monster prints the best. I have two boys one being 15yrs. old and the other being 4 yrs old. With these prints I can find something they both like. Finging fun sheets and bedroom items for boys is not an easy task. This company makes it very easy. Heck the lighting boly could even go off to college and get my years of use.
The action print is my fave. Not only is it great for a boys or girls room but it fits well with other designs. My son is currently residing in 200BC with T-Rex & Bronto. The action sheets+ Accessories would compliment that era. Love 'em!
My favorites are Love and Sunshine. I love the pink on Love and Sunshine is simple but cool, you know?
It was hard to choose my favorite Kideko print because they are all great but I think Monster is my favorite. We use to have finger puppets that were monsters and this bedding kind of reminds me of that.
i love, love, love the sunshine set!!! the colors are wonderful. but i also really like the monster set. i think that my 2-year-old son would love this one best.
Love is all you need!
My favorite is the Beauty design. It's so pink and would match everything in my daughter's room! Mahalo!
I love the green monkeys!
I love, love, love the ROCK poster. Super cute!
gotta go w/ monster!!! My lil boy is currently sleeping in a 2004 carebears beadroom...which was nice for a baby but hes a toddler now and would love sleeping in a monster filled room!! firstname.lastname@example.org thanks!
I love the monster set because it looks like the monsters my son used to draw. He is a teen, but would still love this set. We love all things monster and all things bright green.
It's gotta be the Sunshine pattern! I love the color (and it would be perfect for my little girl's room) and the word associations are just awesome. Good stuff!
My son of course would need the Action print, but if I had a girl I'd be choosing the Love print! They're really all cute!
Sunshine is my absolute favorite! I love the funky print, and the color exudes happiness. :)
I love 'sunshine'!!
I like the Action and Monster print. My little boy would love either one.
I want to turn my spare bedroom into a space for my nephew so that he can come & visit and the Monster design is just PRECIOUS! Please do count me in for the giveaway! Thanks for the chance! Have a great week!
Just love the Love Set, it's really neat
The love print is the sweetest! It's sooo charming. I know my little gal would love it, too!
I really like the Action Print, it is my favorite!
I like the beauty print!
i love the *LOVE* print because i used to have a sweater just like it when i was little. :)
I love your giveaways, mod*mom! I really dig the Monster design. I think it shows how all monsters are the same, even if they're different colors. I wonder if it's the same for people?
I do like the love set...it's so girly!
I do like the love set...it's so girly!
big fan of the monster print. bold, graphic, non-gender specific, perfect for a budding artist! email@example.com
I love the lightning (blue) bedding because I have a boy that is an unpredictable and energy-filled as lightning.
Thanks so much for posting boy bedding that's not baby or big-boy specific. I love Action and Sunshine - it would be hard to choose! You rock, as usual!
I'm currently lovin the green pattern. Why? I generally love green, plus I'm seeing too much blue lately.
I love the pattern with the hearts. It is so fun for Valentin'es Day and that is the color of my daughters room. It is so bright and pretty!
Love the hearts print! It stands out the best to me! Beautiful!
My favorite is the action print. Mainly because I've been walking around and accidentally shocking people this week. There's something about me that I collect static electricity and then zap anyone who is nearby.
We love the sunshine print because of the typography and beautiful shade of yellow.
I adore the Rock design. So cute for my son's bedroom!
I love the one with the combs, its adorable! count me in to win firstname.lastname@example.org
Monster is my favorite, but I love sunshine too. Please enter me, what a fantastic giveaway, and although I appreciate hand me downs, I would love something new!!!

The beauty bed set is very cute. I have a daughter and I have a feeling she is going to be 100% girl and what a better set than that one for a little girl!!
Love or sunshine - happy names and happy sheets!
We're just about to redo my daughter's bedroom. The love design is my favorite - it's adorable!
My son likes the Action print the best and it matches his bedroom walls.
I love the bright colors of the heart design..plus, how can you not love LOVE!

My favorite is the heart print!
Love the heart print, it would be perfect for my 2 year old!

I think the Sunshine print is so cute!
Monster is my favorite pattern, but I love sunshine too!
I love the ROCK pattern, it is so trendy and bright!
my faves are: ACTION and MONSTER. so cute!
Monster is my favorite. I love the color!
Having a guitar-playing son, I'd have to go with ROCK. I'd like to win...Please pick me!
Great Giveaway!!! Thanks
The love print would match my daughter's room perfectly
I love that blue with lightning you've got right up there! That would be perfect for my 12 year old son.
The monster print would be great for transitioning my little monster into his big boy bed that we're getting from Ikea!
I love the beauty set...the retro look of the print is fab!
I wavered, but kept coming bacl to the love set!
The Love Bed set would be great for my daughter. She's growing up too quickly for me and I think this is something she and I can both agree on! :)
love the action set for my little boy
the love print for sure.
I love action for my boy's room, but I would also like the love for my daughter's room...
The love print is adorable! My daughter would love it.
We're redoing my 4 year old's room this spring, and that Love print would be PERFECT - I'd plan the whole room around it.
The Love Print is so pretty. Thanks for taking part in this giveaway.
