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

Manzanita Kids | David and Adrienne Minnery
Manzanita Kids’ Rankings
- #4 Best Toys
About this shop: Another one of our favorite wooden toy shops, Manzanita Kids designs educational and imaginative puzzles, stackers, and modular building sets. We especially love their modular dollhouse, which can be set up in multiple ways for open-ended play options.
About these sellers: David and Adrienne run their family toy business from their little cottage in north Seattle with their toddler son and infant daughter – who both serve as official toy testers. Using their backgrounds in art, woodworking and education, they design each toy to target a specific developmental milestone, using only the safest, most natural materials.
Signature Item: Modular Dollhouse, $148
