Whether you’re buying crib sheets or negotiating with your preschooler about their bedroom theme (solar system meets Mickey Mouse Clubhouse with a splash of Baby Shark?!), bedding options abound. It's hard to know where to even begin looking—because cute sheets are worthless if they’re miserably scratchy—so we tested out some of the top-reviewed companies and surveyed moms across the country to uncover which sheets, comforters and pillowcases are genuinely worth it. Read on for our picks for the 14 best bedding brands.

2. Crate & Kids
Best Selection Runner-Up
Pricing: $16 and up
What We Love About It: Maybe your kid is obsessed with the moon and stars. Or unicorns. Or French bulldogs wearing jaunty hats. You name it, Crate & Kids has it. At the same time, creativity and craftmanship abounds—like with their appliquéd ocean theme or throw pillows to match their dinosaur motif. Their bedding is made from 100 percent cotton, too, and, in most cases, everything—duvets included—is machine-washable. Now, the tough part: asking your kid to choose.

What We Love About It: Parachute is already our go-to for comfy, eco-friendly bedding for ourselves, and the brand's latest expansion in baby and toddler bedding doesn't disappoint. The entire line is OEKO-TEX certified (meaning it's been tested and proven free of harmful chemicals) and it comes in an array of neutral-yet-not-snoozy colors and patterns. For proof, just check out those ochre, plant-print crib sheets.
Best Design Runner-Up
Pricing: $32 and up
What We Love About It: Whether it’s their splatter paint-inspired take on sprinkles or their hipster twist on a floral print, Brooklittles has elevated bedding for the baby and toddler set. Still, it’s the quality and softness (courtesy of a 300-thread-count cotton and smooth sateen weave) that earned these linens a Happy Kid Award last year.
5. California Design Den
Pricing: $20 and up
What We Love About It: When we saw these sheets had nearly 8,000 five-star reviews on Amazon, we had to try them for ourselves. And while we liked the fact that the sheets came in 20 different colors, we were truly impressed with how cuddly the organic cotton sheets were—before you even threw them in the wash. Plus, at $20 for two crib sheets, they're pretty affordable too.
Pricing: $10 and up
What We Love About It: Wait—both of the top spots in this category are cult favorites from Amazon?! We were just as surprised as you are, until we cozied up to Mellanni's brushed microfiber bedding. It's so silky smooth that our testers couldn't wait to slip into bed...which is a rare, glorious thing when your reviewer is under five and vehemently opposed to bedtime.
7. Solly Baby
Best for Babies
Pricing: $38 per crib sheet
What We Love About It: This one came to us via recommendations from real moms. Made from the same material as the Solly Baby Wrap, the bedding is buttery soft and breathable, too. They’re made to fit standard-size crib mattresses, but mini crib sheets are also available. Even more important, they’re sustainably made, sourced from the pulp of Austrian Beechwood trees. The designs are also gender-neutral and chic aka easily blended into all nursery aesthetics.
8. Winter Water Factory
Best for Babies Runner-Up
Pricing: $44 per crib sheet
What We Love About It: It’s hard not to go gaga for the range of unique prints available at this brand. But the quality of the crib sheets is what really makes them sing: Not only are they 100 percent organic, they’re made with the softest jersey material that feels luxe and cozy against your baby’s delicate skin.

9. Pottery Barn Kids

What We Love About It: You Your kids watch Aladdin and Tangled on repeat anyway. Why wouldn’t you kick things up a notch and go all in on a full bedding collection featuring Jasmine, Rapunzel and the rest of the princess crew? These exclusive designs—which include an Avengers-themed set too—will not only delight your kids, they’ll please the parents because they’re well-made (100 percent cotton percale), even after repeated machine washings.
Best Disney-Themed Runner-Up
Pricing: $22 and up
What We Love About It: Speaking of Frozen, Target has the market on Frozen 2 bedding designs—amongst other Disney designs—for both the toddler and twin/queen/full set. Mix and match to make the reference to, say, Ana and Elsa, subtle or loud (see photos above), but rest assured that your kids will freak out when they walk in on this bedtime setup.

11. Snurk Living
Most Fun Bedding
Pricing: $119 and up
What We Love About It: These clever duvet covers and matching pillowcases—which feature everything from an astronaut to a great white shark—make it appear as though your child is sized exactly for the experience they’re inhabiting. Most of the designs feature full-size photography…or full-size enough to fit the dimensions of a twin or full/queen bed. But it’s also made of 100 percent high quality percale and percaline cotton. Drifting off begins now.
12. The Company Store
Most Fun Bedding Runner-Up
Pricing: $24 and up
What We Love About It: There’s a duvet cover featuring dog headshots. Need we say more? But truly, the selection here skews from silly to sophisticated, which gives you (and your kids) plenty of fun options to choose from. Bonus: Almost everything is made from organic cotton percale with the patterns on both sides, so you can easily stretch the life of this bedding.

Coziest Weighted Blanket
What We Love About It: At their best, weighted blankets feel like a cross between a comforter and a swaddle. At their worst, they're like sleeping under a lumpy bean bag you have to continually readjust. Thankfully, the Bearaby Nappling falls on the snuggly end of the spectrum. It gets its weight from its chunky-knit organic cotton, instead of plastic beads, so you rarely need to readjust it. (Note: If you're considering one for your child, make sure the weighted blanket is designed for kids and doesn't exceed 12 percent of their weight. You can find more guidelines on that here.)
Coziest Weighted Blanket Runner-Up
What We Love About It: If your kid loves the security of a weighted blanket but tends to be a hot sleeper, look no further. Baloo's weighted blankets feature 100 percent cotton batting and a glass microbead filling that's designed to be super breathable. In our tests, kids enjoyed wrapping up in it for story time, and felt Goldilocks levels of comfortable (not too hot, not too cold) all the way to "the end."
