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

Pop & Lolli | Mia Vijoen
Pop & Lolli’s Rankings
About this shop: We could go on and on about how these wall decals are artistic and unique, and how they’re removable, reusable, and adjustable. But all you really have to do is take a look at their Etsy shop. Then you’ll understand our obsession. Less than two years later, what started as a seed of an idea from a frustrated mom is now a successful, family-run business distributed in 11 different countries and shipped to over 40.
About this seller: This South Africa native headed to Los Angeles with a passion for color, design, and dreaming big, eventually turning her Master’s in Architecture into a job as a Disney Imagineer. And like so many entrepreneurial stories, it was the birth of Mia’s first daughter – and her frustration at the lack of artistic, funky, extraordinary nursery d’cor – that sparked her idea for Pop & Lolli. Inspired by the colors and vibrancy in African design (as well as the 4 years she spent Imagineering for Disney), Mia has created over-sized fabric wall decals – “picture poetry,” as she calls it – with incredible detail and artistic flair.
