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

Little Alouette | Amy Turn Sharp
Little Alouette’s Rankings
- #1 Best Toys
About this shop: Little Alouette makes some of the most popular wooden teethers on Etsy and beyond – not only because of their safe construction, but because of their clever designs, ranging from guitars to animals to mustaches. This husband-and-wife duo is always coming up with something quirky to add to their shop. They’ve also branched out from teethers to make wooden blocks, rattles, and big-kid toys – all with the same impeccable craftsmanship and safety standards that Little Alouette is known for.
About this seller: Amy (a creative spirit) and her husband Joe (a talented carpenter) have created some of the most buzzed about wooden teethers and toys on Etsy and beyond – from tiny boutiques to American Eagle’s 77 Kids stores. Amy is also quite a figure in the social media and blogging world, frequently speaking at conferences and hobnobbing with the biggest blog stars. (We especially love her latest project of writing a poem a day for the entire year.) Amy is also one of the very few to be named a Top Etsy Mom in both 2010 and 2011.
