Rated 5 out of 5 by Chmiller from Beautiful RugThe colors are beautiful and the touch of the rug is soft and luxurious with great texture. I cannot comment on shedding so my review is limited to the look and quality of the rug. I am more than satisfied thus far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Illustrator from Beautifully designedThis rug was the first item we received for our new nursery. I liked the design so much, I ended up painting a mural to match it. The color scheme gives you a lot of design flexibility, and its gender neutral. It sheds less than the average indian wool rug, and is very plush. 100% happy with this rug in our little nursery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by crashendown from so colorful and fun!!We purchased this rug about 9 months ago for the playroom and it looks fantastic still! The colors are bright against the Grey .... it is easy to match the decor with it as you have so many color options. The rug is comfy too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by indydad from High quality rug that toddlers loveWe purchased this rug for our playroom and it has been the best investment in the entire room. It is a high quality piece that you can tell was made by artists rather than a cookie cutter machine. The wool is soft, the colors are vibrant, the images next to each letter are fun, and this makes for a great learning tool as well. It did not shed as much as we expected based on other reviews. Has been in direct sunlight for 18 months and the colors have not faded whatsoever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Amanda6237 from Great playroom rug!This rug is perfect for a playroom! Super thick and high quality. It sheds a lot, so needs a lot of vacuuming, but overall it's a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kellime from Awesome! Beautiful! Colorful! Delightful! E,F,G...I purchased this rug for the nursery I'm designing for my son's arrival in September. The quality is top-notch and the colors are divine. I loved the photo online, and the product is even better in person! I cannot wait for the rest of the room to be completed as this piece will tie it all together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mama26 from Colorful and soft!I love this rug! We needed something for our play space, but wanted something the kids could grow into. I love the fact that they can learn their ABCs while playing on this soft rug. The colors are great, too; fun for kids and adults!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Hairbyheather from Beautiful colors!I love the colors in this rug! However, the material that is made of sheds like crazy!!It's wool, I believe, and when we walk or play on it. There are little fur pieces that she's everywhere

Rated 2 out of 5 by Professor Mom from Beautiful but SHEDS LIKE CRAZY!!!I bought this rug about 8 month ago and I had to come back and write a review, because I'm honestly quite disappointed. It is beautiful. The design is fabulous and the colors are perfect for our playroom. But this thing sheds like crazy. And I don't mean a fuzzy here or there, I mean if you sit on it you will be covered in a full layer of itchy rug fur! It sticks to everything and it itches you like crazy. This is NOT good for a rug in a playroom where we sit on the floor ALL THE TIME! I thought after vacuuming it a few times, it would stop. But, no. It's been 8 months and it still sheds every single time! I have to vacuum it constantly to keep the giant balls of rug lint at bay. It's ridiculous. So, my rating: Looks = awesome; Functionality = horrible! I would not recommend it.
