I agree that the cover is stiff and kind of awkward if you actually want to tuck Samantha in. You have to put her arms over it to get it to stay flat. The other thing I don't like about her bed is that if you have cats or dogs the fabric seems to attract hair like a magnet. I don't let my cats on my doll furniture and somehow there is still hair that I have to clean off it every other day. Besides these things, I still really like the bed. It seems very sturdy. I also like the pink ribbon and the matching pillow. Still, I wish there was a bottom sheet, although I don't know if this is historically accurate.
