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

ModernPop | Ryan Beshara
About this shop: Nursery art adds a child-like vibrancy to a baby room, but too often baby-geared art looks a bit cheesy. That’s why we love ModernPop – an Etsy shop full of bright colors and sleek graphics targeted at parents with a more modern aesthetic.
About this seller: This LA-based designer (with an MFA in photography and a background in advertising art) doesn’t have kids yet but has been creating parent- and baby-friendly prints for the last three years. Inspired by German Bauhaus and mid-century modern design, Ryan calls her work “aesthetic poetry for children.”
Signature Item: An Alphabetic Ode to Helvetica Wall Art, $50
