These Are Etsy’s Hottest Kids’ Trends for 2020—and You Can Shop Them Now
Etsy has released their 2020 Kids’ Trend Guide—and it shows that, among other things, trends from the 90s are back!
The guide is based off of Etsy’s search data from the past three months and shows that 90s’ inspired crafts, upgraded playrooms and camera-ready nursery decor, among others, are rising as trends this year. Largely, this is due to creating a lively environment for kids at home as we all spend more time at home due to COVID-19.
Below, the top kids’ trends on Etsy, along with products you can shop for each.
Tie-dye has, unsurprisingly, increased in popularity, with the site reporting a 318 percent increase in searches for kid’ tie-dye items. Daisy items also have an increased search by 66 percent, as do jump ropes (up 228 percent) and kids’ overalls (up 15 percent).
