Holiday shopping in a mall can be fun (if you like crowds, cold weather and corny holiday decor – just kidding, we love the last one too). When it comes to shopping for kid’s toys we have found a gold mine of unique toys that can’t be found in any mall, on Etsy. So while we have gift guides coming up next week, we thought we’d give you a head start by rounding up our favorite Etsy Gems – most are handmade and will give you that warm fuzzy feeling when you realize you are supporting small businesses!
Pumpur – a baby gym that will fit in better in your living room than any primary colored find from Toys R Us
Bunny Lulu Handmade – the perfect personalized gift – a sweet handmade bunny that can be monogrammed
Big Stuffed – I never knew I wanted a giant stuffed octopus until I found this shop, now I want a whole sea of them
Tiny Fox Hole – we are all about natural wooden toys and so is Etsy but this shop is one of our favorites
Love Lane – the PERFECT gift for the Holidays that can also double as next years Halloween costume (you might have to bribe your kid to take it off between now and then)
The Wooden Gem – more wooden toys we love but these are also hand painted!
Home Tomes by Galatova – the perfect soft toys for your little’s Ikea kitchen
Teepee Joy – the perfect place for kids to hide, read, play and these will look adorable in their rooms
Art 2 the Extreme – recycled crayons in the shape of everything from letters to donuts – you may have to convince your kids not to take a bite out of them!
Little Green Market – babies love brunch too
