There are a lot of wonderful things about parenting in this day and age: advances in medicine and a better understanding of child development. The rise in technology, giving us digital cameras to record each milestone and iPads to make family road trips a heck of a lot easier.
And who could forget washable markers? Not me!
One of the things I love most about parenting at this particular time is the availability of children’s products that reflect my values and style, and the best place to get them is, of course, Etsy.
I’ve listed my favorite Etsy shops that need to be on your go-to list for all things kiddo. There’s a variety of merchandise as well as price points represented here, but they all have one important thing in common: they celebrate the magic of childhood.
Do you have a favorite Etsy shop? Leave us a link in the comments!
