Last week, we wrote about the $71.97 Tulip crib bedding set from Wal-Mart that was making us question whether there was any association with Dwell Baby. The general consensus was that it was just a knock-off. Now that we've stumbled upon Orchard Park ($79.97), another newish crib bedding set that was clearly inspired by Dwell Baby's Motif Robin, it seems as if the knock-offs are in full bloom. But, really is that a bad thing?
We have both the Wal-Mart Tulip set and the Dwell Baby Garden Crib bedding, and frankly, the Dwell Baby bedding hasn't blown us away to be worth the almost five-times price difference (to be fair this is before multiple washings or any serious use). The Dwell Baby comforter, in particular, didn't look nearly as nice as it does in photographs (maybe we expected too much and thought there would be some embroidery rather than just a print).
If you can get over Wal-Mart's business practices, or, if you are trying to not blow your entire baby budget on bedding, the Wal-Mart stuff is pretty nice. We'd recommend buying a higher-quality thread count sheet set to go with one of these sets to make up the difference.
