I really like these curtains. Though they don't block out 100% of the light, I thought it was good enough. I've used them in both my toddler's room and baby's room. The colors are pretty and I didn't notice a smell like some of the other reviews. Overall, good for the price.

Love these and they do block light and help with temps
I bought these for my daughters room for the color. They were the only lavendar that matched her bedding. I had no idea they were supposed to block the light when I did. I had blinds up as well and with the blinds closed and curtains pulled over it was an added bonus. She can go to bed for school when it's still light out and sleeps in on the weekends. We bought a new house, and I got them for her entire new room. I'm now ordering some in another color to match her other bedding. Love these. I haven't ever noticed an odd smell on them though, or washed them yet though. I do recommend them.
after reading so many bad reviews, I decided to check these out in the store instead of purchasing them online. The first thing I check was for smell, other than the plastic smell from the packaging I didn't smell anything bad. and then I actually took one out of the package to check how much light the block. In the store it looked pretty good so I brought them home. They were wrinkly so I put them in the dryer as the instructions stated which worked perfectly. They are now hanging in my daughters room and doing a great job. I would say at least 75 percent blockage of light in a very large bright window.
We have the dark blue and lime blackout curtains and recently purchased the red ones... we absolutely love these curtains! They are vibrant in colors and are wonderful with making the room dark.. other reviews have stated they are not good with blocking light but its kinda a given when you purchase the lighter colors like the yellow or lime.. those colors aren't as dark as some of the others like the blue and red; therefore, they are not going to make the room quite as dark but the lime does a great job. I would recommend these curtains to anyone! With regard to the smell its not that bad and you only smell it if you are right on them.. it goes away.. Throw them in the dryer for a few minutes with a wet towel and a dryer sheet (gets any wrinkles out and helps with any smell)
These curtains are great. They block a lot of light and the blue color was perfect for what I was looking for. You could not make curtains for this price with fabric and black out material. Bought two sets for both kids rooms' and am very happy with them.
