Top 50 Etsy Baby Shops
We've updated the list: To view 2013's Top 50 Etsy Baby Shops, click here!
Once again, we took on the overwhelming task of narrowing down our 50 favorite Etsy shops for the 18-months-and-under crowd — hunting for the most inventive toys, original outfits, and even our favorite vintage finds. By tapping into the artistic, entrepreneurial spirit booming in this creative community, we found that some of the most dedicated, industrious shop owners direct their numerous talents into the baby world — typically because they themselves are parents and want the best for their own kids. (Luckily, we can reap the benefits of their ingenuity.)
Considering that there are so many talented artisans on Etsy, we deliberately didn’t repeat any Etsy shops from last year — so check back to our Best Etsy Shops of 2011 (as well as our Top 50 Etsy Moms of 2012) for more of our favorites.
Of course, it’s impossible to recognize every single shop, so nominate your favorites, vote for the best, and continue to support the handmade community. — Michelle Horton

Apple n Amos | Amos Trombetto
Apple Namos’ Rankings
- #5 Best Toys
About this shop: Although infants can certainly play with Apple n Amos products, the toys are designed to eventually teach colors, letters, numbers, and early math. So besides encouraging imaginative play, they provide educational entertainment to boot.
About this seller: A couple of years ago, Amos decided to be a stay-at-home mom and earn an income from her passion for crafting – crafting only the best, of course. With her son as an inspiration, all of her educational wooden toys are rooted in Waldorf and Montessori teaching philosophies and crafted in a quiet corner of Connecticut.
