Duvet cover - too young?

We are building a new house and want to decorate a room for our 5yo. He's asked for a dragon theme - how quickly do you think he would grow out of this duvet / sticker set?

Problem is that most of the dragon stuff I can find is aimed at a much older age group but obviously we don't him to find it too babyish after just a year or so.

Thanks smile

It's easy to change the bedding; not quite as easy to change the stickers (unless they peel off easily). Could you not decorate the room simply and then personalise it using soft furnishings and so on (things which are easy to change as he grows up)?

Thanks for your reply... I checked the stickers and they do peel off easily. I also asked my 9yo son to have a look and he thinks it'll be ok for a couple of years so I think we may just go for it. We've been renting till now and DS2 has had a tiny, barely decorated room so I really want to make this one special for him!

I think they look great. I can't say if he's likely to grow out of them quickly, not much experience with that age (yet). I don't think my 9yo nephew would like them, but if they are easily peelable then you can just change them.

Thanks! I was more worried about the longevity of the duvet than the stickers, but I figure if my 9yo DS1 isn't shocked by it then it should do for DS2 till he's 7 or so smile
