5 Best Etsy Shops Kids Will Swoon Over

sharp-shirterThe world forever changed the day Etsy, the handmade and vintage marketplace, was born.

Now, lovers of customized cuteness can easily find pretty much anything they desire to make their lives feel pretty just by perusing their favorite Etsy shops. And, makers of such goods can quickly become superstars.

Etsy has made it easy for me to wow my pregnant friends at baby showers and one-up the other moms with my awesome teacher gifts. And yeah, I really do that stuff. But, the thing I love most about Etsy is that buying one-of-a-kind items from the site not only makes me unique and cool, it also allows me to support women-owned businesses. Not that every Etsy shop is chick-owned (one of my faves: Sharp Shirter, is totally owned by a dude), but a ton of them are and I love being able to do that.

Want to see my favorite Etsy Kid Shops? Here are five to swoon over…


Shop #1

Looking for a great place to snag fun pretend play items for your little one? So in love with the pretend food items at Apple n Amos.


Shop #2

For kids who want to look funky fresh, the Lettuce Turnip The Beet digs at Coup are just what you need.


Shop #3

Lego lovers in the house! Snag your favorite builders some Lego crayons from Crayon Me Crazy. You can also find robots, dinosaurs, motorcycles, and more!


Shop #4

Oh you’re fancy, huh? Well, you will be with something to dress up in from BHBKidStyle. So in love with the pretend fox tails, but their masks are pretty spectacular too.


Shop #5

Every Dude needs a sling shot. Especially one with pom poms to shoot. Get yours at Tweet Toys. They also have some adorable sail boats and mobiles for baby.
