In (slightly belated) honor of tiny Native New Yorker Riley’s second birthday, here is an episode of Etsomnia™ dedicated to the kiddies.
Here are the best and worst items for children I stumbled over in the wee hours on Etsy, in no particular order. For more Etsy fun, check out all my weekly Etsomnia™ posts.
(Etsy-addict’s tip: If you do a search for baby mobile on Etsy, you will lose several hours of your life, all the while going squee. No joke. This post took me two days because I got lost in mobile land and couldn’t find my way out. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.)
Even though she seems like she’s not having a great day, I love this Bridget Doll sewing pattern by BlueWhimsyEtsy
“You’d better go right to sleep, little boy, or the bunny gets it.”
On the one hand, if the child carrying this is any older than 4, he will likely get his ass kicked. On the other hand, penguin! By CreativeWorkstation
Is your child too confident? Hanging this judgy sheep over his bed should knock him down a peg or two!
And in the so-stupid-it’s-irresistible category, behold the Frosty the Snowman hat by GarysAngel
Look, it’s Wooly Willy! I had one of these as a kid. Of course, these days, it would be marketed as “Insta-Hipster.” Sold by CashmereJellyBean
Taken out of context, this quote seems like an odd if bold choice for a children’s room.
At a loss for what to give that special infant in your life? How about a scary knitted caterpillar with crazy eyes?
This, on the other hand, is the best idea ever. A tablecloth playhouse. I want a time machine so I can go back and play with it when I still fit under a table. By CoolSpacesForKids
Dress-up costumes have gotten soooo much better since I was little. (See the picture on the right for an illustration of how awful our costumes were.) Beautiful wings I want to wear to work by Tree and Vine
Here’s a prime example of how bad costumes were when I was growing up. Let’s overlook for the moment that poor Henry was wearing something akin to blackface. Just look at the tragic quality of the crap we’re wearing.
And in the not-at-all-cute department, here’s a light-up baby mobile sure to induce everything from alien abduction nightmares to seizures.
I want to object to this. I want to make a joke about weird mustachioed men floating over your infant’s head. But they’re so damned cute! By FunkySheepy
I want a rainbow crayon, I WANNA RAINBOW CRAYON! PLEASE?!?!! By MamaMayI

The tablecloth playhouse is brilliant and I will try to buy you a rainbow crayon. xoxo
