Etsy is one of our favourite places to shop, especially for children’s items. Here are six of our top picks for kids’ stuff.
What better or easier way to shop for fantastic kids’ stuff from Canada than on Etsy? You can get great unique gifts all from the comfort of your sofa and your laptop!
Bug & Bird
Let other people buy the tried-and true toys
. They’re all so common, why not look for something extraordinary and unique instead? The natural, handmade toys from Bug & Bird
, a Calgary-based Etsy seller, are so charming, you may be tempted to hold on to them for your own little one rather than giving them as a present.
You’ve always meant to learn how to crochet but just never got around to it. You can still dress up your little one in some super-adorable, custom crochet pieces thanks to Ira Rott
. Your bundle of joy is already the cutest thing ever, but he or she will be even more charming in one of these crocheted numbers.
Your baby will stand out from the crowd with one of these gorgeous (as well as safe and non-toxic) wooden teethers from Re-wood Toys
. They come in fun shapes and interesting designs, and all the items from this Etsy seller, including stacking toys and blocks, are organic.
If you want to make a bold, fanciful statement in your baby’s or child’s room, look no further than EvgieNev
. This Etsy seller’s wall decals are fun and colourful and add instant drama to a drab room. Best of all, they’re not permanent and require much less labour than painting a mural yourself would require.
Dear My Kids
If you’re the crafty type yourself, you may want to order some patterns from Dear My Kids
. These PDF patterns for felt crafts are swoon-worthy. Check out the charming tea set you can make from felt. Other patterns include adorable felt animals and dolls. Once you perfect your way with them, they can make stunning gifts for your child’s friends.
For some simple but fun and modern ways to dress up the walls in a child’s room, you can’t go wrong with English Muffin
. The prints are cute without being cloyingly so, and you can choose from educational ones (a map of the world, for example, or an alphabet print using animals to illustrate each letter) or order a custom print of your child’s name.
