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

Imagination Kids’ Rankings

About this shop: Imagination Kids toys are all made from natural wood for open-ended play, following a Waldorf philosophy. These are the kind of imagination-provoking toys that parents appreciate and kids love.

About this seller: This home-schooling, gardening, book-writing mother of two somehow has time to also make some of the most popular wooden toys on Etsy. Based in a suburb of Indianapolis, Erin lives a sometimes-chaotic life peppered with naps in the striped hammock, pie baking, and lots of love. For those interested in toy making, she recently wrote a book: Natural Wooden Toys: 75 Easy-to-Make and Kid-Safe Designs to Inspire Imaginations & Creative Play.

Signature Item: Wooden Toy Rainbow Stacker, $25

    Red or Gray Art is AWESOME! I hung a dozen strands of their paper birds in my Mommy & Me Room – it is absolutely beautiful. And we added peaceful and inspiring parenting words to a few of the birds. http://www.etsy.com/shop/redorgrayart

    hey anonymous from march 9. you are NOT #15 overall. yes you were voted #5 in baby gear but the rest of it is in random numbers:

    #1-10= baby clothing
    #11-20= baby gear
    #21-30= nursery
    #31-34= toys
    #41-50= vintage

    you did great but don’t let your ego get too big. you are #5 out of 10 baby gear products, but NOT 15 OVER ALL. 1-50 is random so relax woman.

    I love, love all the featured shops! Congrats to all! And ‘jumpinjellyfish’ I don’t get why you have to be so bitter and rude in here. This is an opportunity to Celebrate all these wonderful Etsy shops who’s owners work so hard and with great dedication and passion on what they do. Wether a shop ranks #5 out of 10, or #15, etc… It’s valid to be excited for any seller featured in here. Whomever the seller was I bet it was a confusion. We all can see the charts and find for ourselves. I want to keep this a positive post, and again, Congratulate all the featured sellers fro Etsy, who are among the to 50, regardless of ranks! You go Girls and Boys!
