3 Perfect Handmade Toys Your Baby Can Grow With!

3 Perfect Handmade Toys Your Baby Can Grow With!

As you may have guessed, I love handmade things. I love that someone put so much work into something, and I’m always amazed by the talent in others (that I wish I had!). I think it’s especially incredible to create cute baby/toddler toys, since so many of the baby and toddler items are all plastic and made overseas! Today I’m featuring three Etsy shops that have the cutest handmade toys, and they’re perfect for little babes!


  1. This adorable hedgehog rattle by Anna Made Yours



This hedgehog rattle is the cutest thing ever! Anna hand-knits these, and I absolutely love this cute pink color she used for this rattle for my daughter! I have a special spot in my heart for hedgehogs because we have two live ones as pets, but Little Bear’s room is woodland themed, so this goes perfectly with her decor. This would be the perfect handmade baby shower gift for that momma who’s using a woodland theme. And, Anna can make yours in a variety of colors!!




Looking for something for the older babe? Check out some of Anna’s other handmade items like this hand knit stuffed bunny, or this otter. Anna also makes blankets (I love this one that’s organic!!) and hats/mittens as well!

  1. This super cute dolly by MaddMarys



This sweet hand sewn dolly is the cutest first dolly for a little babe! It’s soft and cuddly for a baby, but as my daughter grows up and understands what dollies really are, she’s going to love it! The details on this baby doll are so cute, and Mary does an amazing job with these, and you couldn’t go wrong with one of these dollies as a gift for a 1 or 2 year old!



Mary also makes a ton of other items in her shop if you’re looking for something else; for example, cute pillow cases, and this cute handmade pumpkin! She’s also selling lots of fabric in her shop, so if you’re crafty yourself and looking for some new fabric, check her out!

  1. This Oven and Cookies Busy Bag by That’s Sew Personal



Oh my gosh, I just love this toy!! It’s absolutely perfect handmade toy for a toddler who’s learning to count! This is a little felt bag, with an oven embroidered on it. The front of the oven has a vinyl pocket, and 9 handmade cookies go into the oven!! The cookies are embroidered with chips, ranging from 1-9. The bag is a good size, at 9″ tall and 6.25″ wide, not including the strap–the perfect size, in my opinion.




Jennifer at That’s Sew Personal hand makes tons of items in her shop–if there’s a way to make it by hand, she can do it! Her favorite fabric to work with is felt, and she tests all of her toys on her 4 lucky kids. Besides this adorable toy oven, be sure to check out some of my other favorites in her shop:

This personalized candy cane bib–perfect for a stocking stuffer, or holiday gift for baby!

These cute finger puppets–because finger puppets are awesome, and these can be customized for your family!

This finger puppet gingerbread house–such a cute handmade holiday gift for a toddler!

And my favorite, this tooth fairy monster pillow!!!!! SO CUTE!

Jennifer also makes headbands, superhero masks, hair bows, bibs and other plush toys, so be sure to check her store out!

    Hello Meredith, home made toys are best as compared to the others. These toys are safe for our children. Mostly kids chew toys from mouth so in this case it’s not harmful for kid’s health. Thank you so much for sharing this blog.
