Top 50 Etsy Baby Shops
Looking for one-of-a-kind nursery d'cor? Newborn outfits not sewn in a factory? Baby gear that doesn't cost a precious chunk of your little one's fledgling college fund? Look to Etsy.com. As we discovered when we compiled Babble's Top 50 Etsy Moms list, the online craft cooperative is a hive of industrious, creative folks - including legions of moms. We also noticed how many Etsy sellers offer amazing items for babies, and how far away their gorgeous wares are from the impersonal, assembly-line infant products most of us are used to. We decided these shops serve the 18-months-and-under crowd so well that they deserve a list of their own.
As the co-founder of DIY site PrudentBaby, a blogger for Babble's Family Style blog and a longtime Etsy shopper, I've visited - and loved - hundreds of Etsy's beautiful baby boutiques. So while I was absolutely thrilled when Babble asked me to do this list, choosing the 50 best of the best was a challenge. Welcome to Babble's roundup of the Top 50 Etsy Baby Shops, purveyors of some of the most beautiful, most useful, most lovingly made baby goods around.
And if we did leave your favorite shop off the list, we hope you'll nominate it yourself.

The Shop: Hand-sewn, one-of-a-kind creatures made of fabric, stuffing and mystery, these toys straddle the line between fantasy and reality with funky shapes and goofy faces. From shrimp-like bodies to surprisingly inviting grimaces, these are monsters your babe will love to cuddle.
The Seller: Tania is an Italian expat living in Berlin whose passion is using fabric to invent new little creatures, as she has been doing every day for the last seven years. Failures, imperfections and mistakes are where she finds the most inspiration. The result? Toy perfection.
