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

Tiny Giraffe’s Rankings
- #6 Best Toys
About this shop: Tiny Giraffe’s wooden blocks are designed to transform from beautiful nursery d’cor and a baby’s first toy to a toddler’s learning tool and then into a family keepsake. Although I originally stumbled on Tiny Giraffe because of their precious paper doll blocks (which feature mix-and-match blocks of vintage-looking paper dolls), I’ve since fallen for their watercolor-illustrated alphabet blocks.
About this seller: Amy, now a mom of two, ditched her gig in the music industry once her first daughter was born – and this Etsy shop serves as an outlet for her creative and entrepreneurial energy. It only took her two years to have Tiny Giraffe blocks sold in baby boutiques across the country.
Signature Item: Deluxe Alphabet Wooden Baby Blocks, $64
