I purchase one of these last year for my daughter. The pink is slightly muted, in a good way, not in your face PINK but very classy and stylish. The leather is very soft and supple and it is obviously of quality materials and workmanship. She is now nine and she is quite tall, 98 percentile, and it is now a perfect size for her in a Large. When she outgrows it I will be buying her the next size.
