With all the duties that come with raising children and maintaining a household, many parents find that they do not have a lot of time to shop for their little loved ones. Hence, it is not surprising that a recent study found that people with children are more likely to shop online than people without children.

Although there are millions of sites dedicated to consumers of child-related products, InStyle Magazine recently listed a handful of charming and unique online stores that hit the mark.
