Hi, J.! We purchased the Olive Kids Trucks and Planes (or something like that) bedding for our 4 year old almost 2 years ago for his birthday, and it has washed and held up great. The colors are still really vibrant, the sheets don't pill, they are smooth and soft, and I even use inexpensive laundry detergent (Purex). We also have the matching comforter and sham, and we have washed those as well, although not as frequently, and they are have held up wonderfully. It is a bit more expensive, but they've been well worth the price. We bought ours through Amazon.

Both my kids have Olive Kids bedding and I love them. I have had the sheets for about 1 year and they have held up fine through washings. My sons sheets have been washed more because of potty training, nose bleeds, etc and I have even washed the comforter a couple of times and it is doing fine.
I love Olive Kids because of the cute patterns and reasonable prices. Much better than Pottery Barn Kids but yet patterns that are just as cute. My son has the dinosaur print and my daughter has the tea party print. Also love them because they offer sheets in queen size.

we have the train/plane/automobils for my sons bed. HE LOVES THEM!!! Our has washed up nicely and are just as soft as our other sheets. I have not washed our comforter yet. We got ours at Bed Bath & Beyond, and i've seen that brand at TJ Max too.

My son loves his patterns, but I found them to be rougher than the marketing/product desciption led me to believe, esp. the pillow cases. They offered me a replacement, but those felt the same. So know that they are only 200 thread count and the dye process makes them rather rough, esp. if you're more used to a sateen, jersey or pima cotton sheet. We still use them, but I don't personally like the feel. My Mom bought him some blue jersey (t-shirt) sheets from either Garnet Hill or Cuddledown and those are wonderfully soft -- he likes the feel but you know how kids are their patterns -- still loves the trucks!

We have the cars and trucks bedding set for toddler beds/cribs. It's the sheet, pillowcase and little quilt. It still looks great after multiple washings. Unfortunately, it's not soft enough for my son's sensitive skin so we've never used it on his bed. He does like to drag the sheets around and play with them, i.e. his stuffed animals sleep under them or he'll use it as a floor covering but he never wanted to sleep between the sheets.
