Are Animal Prints Suitable for Kids' Decor?

I've been enjoying animal prints in the grown-up world lately, and it got me thinking: would these patterns work well in a kid's room or nursery? Are they too grown up for certain pieces? I gathered a few ideas here and now I'm curious what you think.Would you use an animal print for your child's decor? Should it be used minimally as an accent, or could you use it as a main motif? Is it gender neutral, or more suitable for a girl? What pieces would you put an animal pattern on, and which ones are a definite no-no?

Let us know what you think in the comments!
