The Best Baby Toys on Etsy

I showed you our favorite Etsy shops for baby clothes, nursery decor and parenting gear, and here’s a look at the Best Etsy Baby Shops for toys.

Pretty much every Etsy toy maker told me that they started making toys to give their kids the safest, most natural, most developmentally appropriate toys — and other parents wanted in, too. And so a business was born.

These are our top 10 favorite handmade toy shops — from one parent to another:
