Handmade at Amazon introduces new product categories of handmade items including Accessories, Baby and Toys & Games

  • New categories offer more than 20,000 items sold directly from Artisans
  • 100 percent increase in Handmade Artisans using FBA service for FREE two-day delivery to Prime customers

SEATTLE, 2016-May-12 — /EPR Retail News/ — Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) announced today Handmade at Amazon (www.amazon.com/handmade), a store featuring genuinely handmade items crafted and sold directly from artisans, has introduced new product categories of handmade items including Accessories, Baby and Toys & Games. Handmade at Amazon was designed to provide customers and artisans a tailored store specifically for handcrafted items. To start, the new handmade product categories will offer more than 20,000 items sold directly from artisans.

“The most frequent piece of feedback we receive from customers and artisans is they want even more categories of handcrafted items,” said Steve Johnson, Director for Handmade at Amazon. “We are excited to better serve our growing number of artisans by unveiling the Accessories, Baby and Toys & Games categories, while providing our customers that love handmade items a quick and simple way to purchase fun and unique items with the familiarAmazon experience they know and trust. Handmade at Amazon has been performing beyond our expectations. In fact, leading up to Mother’s Day we saw sales jump more than 50 percent.”

The new Handmade at Amazon categories includes:

  • Accessories: To keep up with the latest summer fashion trends, customers can find Italian leather handbags, plaid zipper clutches and bow ties.
  • Baby: For families or gift givers searching for baby-themed items with a personal story, check out floral bib/burp cloth gift sets, teething rings andboat shaped wooden toy box & kids seat.
  • Toys & Games: For the little ones around the house and family fun, customers will enjoy wooden memory games, Dalmatian décor puzzles and felt tool set toys.

Since launching the Handmade store last fall, the number of items has grown by 4x to more than 400,000 quality handcrafted items from all 50 states and more than 80 countries around the world. For the artisans choosing to use the Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) service to reach Prime customers with FREE two-day shipping, approximately 95 percent of those artisans have made a sale. Handmade at Amazon has added thousands of Prime-eligible items. Since the beginning of the year, there’s been a 100 percent increase in handmade artisans taking advantage of the FBA service to deliver items quickly to Prime customers.

“Before opening my Handmade at Amazon shop, I only sold locally in the Bay Area. Now I am able to share my art and passion with customers nationwide. It has been exciting getting orders from all over the country and knowing that customers across the U.S. are wearing my jewelry,” said Megan Stoltz, small business owner of Audacia Designs, based in San Francisco. “I have seen huge growth in my sales since joining Handmade at Amazon. The amount of jewelry I sell each month continues to increase as I test new ways of selling my items. Using the Fulfilled by Amazon service has made it simple to give my customers an easy and free shipping option which has consequently increased my sales.”

“We’ve been in business for 59 years, yet in the last six months our business has grown 40 percent. The Martha Stewart American Made store on Handmade at Amazon has been the key to that growth,” said Matt Beaudoin, artisan for Mystic Knotwork, based in Connecticut. “Amazon encourages us to profile our work giving customers an authentic experience. They provide us the freedom to do what we do best.”

All products available on Handmade at Amazon are factory-free and must be made by hand. The new product categories will add to the previously featured Jewelry, Home Décor, Artwork, Stationery and Party Supplies, Kitchen and Dining, and Furniture categories launched last fall.

Be Amazed by a Beautiful New Online Collection of Children’s Nursery Designs

Maze features a collection of children’s clothing, accessories, nursery furniture and toys from around the world. For the young and young-at-heart, these playful and design-savvy items are geared towards families looking to create a home with a sense of style – where aesthetic and design become kid-friendly.

Launching via New York City and Singapore, Maze is an international work of love, a real online boutique – there are no mass productions here. The products featured on Maze are eclectic and have been curated from across the globe, but they all have a common thread: each item has been chosen for its solid design, high quality, natural and environmentally-friendly workmanship, and moreover because there is something being given back to society through the creation or sale of the piece: jobs created, drinking water supplied, educational programs funded – things which, in today’s world and especially as parents, we are ever more conscious of.

Moreover, the idea of exposing children to good design, and having simple, high-quality designs created with children in mind is not often considered. With this collaboration, Maze aims to redefine the way we furnish, dress, and entertain our children. Look for whimsical European children’s wear, Scandinavian nursery furniture, colorful Japanese toys and more. But above all, look to Maze to curate the aesthetic of truly beautiful children’s design.

Exclusive to Maze in the US and Singapore, plush sheep from Hanns-Peter Krafft. Designed in 1982, these near impossible-to-find, handcrafted wooden sheep are made of real sheepskin, beech legs and leather ears. They are whimsical and highly sought after, evoking the “Mouton” designs of brilliant husband and wife design team Claude and Francois-Xavier Lalanne.

Trinkets and scarves from Nathalie Lete are inspired by vintage toys, pressed flower, old animal engravings, and Parisian folk works. Her work is colourful, naive and poetic, sometimes strange, to the point of tending towards art brut – but remains art for you and your little one.

From Swedish designer Margot Barolo’s line, Baby Barolo come down-filled papoose, comforter and socks to swaddle babies in snuggly clouds.

Knitted objets de l’art from Lucky Boy Sunday are beautiful and quirky – the perfect juxtaposition between childhood and hip parenthood create modern luxury in form of knitted art toys and soft furnishings.

Designed in Japan and produced on heritage looms in Lithuania, pieces from Yumiko Sekine’s Fog Linen Work line define today’s natural lifestyle trend in Japan. These linens blend in beautifully and now include a collection for toddlers.

After 5 years in the “Beaux-Arts” in Paris and a career in cinema Maud de Longevialle gives us a stunning and impeccably crafted collection in Leoca-Paris. Timeless elegance is delivered, and you will probably envy your little one’s closet.

“We do not inherit our planet from our parents, we borrow it from our children. – Antoine de Saint-Exupéry”. Modeled in the style of their popular adult line, components of Veja sneakers are both sustainable and organic. The construction process is socially conscious and creates good factory conditions for workers in both Brazil and France.

It was while she was thinking about her childhood memories that Japanese designer Kaz Shiomi had the inspiration for Kiko. This line of children’s toys are all made from wood and there, charm lies in simplicity. The brand has an authentic and artistic quality; reasonable prices, lively colours, and a slightly quirky touch that is quintessentially Japanese.

Hans Stockmar started with beekeeping products and beeswax candles in 1922. For over 50 years, Stockmar has been producing wax crayons that do not crumble, stick or smudge and are non-toxic. Maze will feature their signature wax crayon colors and watercolors – colorful and fun.

A huge transition happens when we create a child – our lives begin to move in a different direction and the focus shifts towards creating a welcoming and beautiful space for them. At the same time, we as adults have our own aesthetic and sensibilities. Can we coexist in design and find style that is youthful, playful, and fun for both? “Absolutely!” says Maze!

Maze launched online in New York in September 2013. The collection will expand internationally via Singapore by early February 2014

Both “Jakka the Giraffe” and “Ekko the Elephant” feature a “jungle leaf” that crinkles when touched and are packaged in a safari-themed gift box that also features leaves and grosgrain ribbon imprinted with the animal’s name.

As with many of the items from Corner Stork Baby Gifts, the packaging and unique presentation are important selling points for the products. “Presenting baby socks as a caterpillar or an octopus shows the creativity and ingenuity that has become synonymous with the Baby Aspen brand, manufacturers of these and other unique baby gifts, which is why we are proud to be a leading distributor for these products,” says Plott. The “Caterpillar Crawlers” feature four pairs of socks with perky prints in a cute caterpillar presentation, while the “Sock T. Pus” includes a plush octopus with head that rattles along with four pairs of socks on the crinkling tentacles that can be removed and worn by baby. It is available in pink or blue.

The 10 year anniversary of the Tesco Baby & Toddler Clubis marked by the launch of a new online service

For the last 10 years, the phenomenally successful Tesco Baby & Toddler Club has helped over 1m parents throughout the UK by providing them with support at just the time they need it most. Now, to mark its 10th birthday, the Club has launched a compelling new set of member benefits and a fantastic new website.

Celebrating a new arrival – Baby & Toddler Club online in keeping with the Tesco ‘Every Little Helps’ philosophy, and in direct response to the 98% of Baby & Toddler Club members who asked Tesco for support through an online service.

“Our members told us that while they really valued the information we gave them through the Club magazines, they wanted an online offering as well. This allows us to provide support when parents need it most – even if that is at 3am with a screaming baby“, says Jenna Copeland, Tesco Baby & Toddler Club Manager.

“Our new website means that mums can instantly access the information they need and, if they need further reassurance, can contact other mums in our Chat Room. This new initiative is just part of the commitment is putting behind providing our customers with the very best in online services and we know it is something that will be welcomed not only by our members, but by parents throughout the UK.” Tesco

The Baby & Toddler Club online will offer a wealth of information at parents’ fingertips, as well as being a genuine 24/7 club where mums can make new friends online, share experiences and offer each other support. Other features include:

– ‘You and Your Baby’ – a comprehensive guide to all the ups and downs of pregnancy and the first 3 years of parenthood & childhood.

– Recipes– recipes for pregnant women, babies & toddlers.

– Baby Diaries – true life diaries of a pregnant mum, a new mum and a dad of two toddlers.

– Ask an expert – FAQ on topics from nutrition and development to child psychology and relationships. An opportunity to post a question to be answered by one of 10 Baby & Toddler Club experts.

– Baby forums – customers who register their interest for the baby forum will be automatically entered into a prize draw to win a year’s supply of nappies.

– About the Club – an opportunity for parents to join the Tesco Baby & Toddler Club online, including the latest Mums’ Choice information and winning products, a guide to what’s on in store.

A bonanza of fantastic benefits for club members

The new website isn’t the only exciting new development. New Club members will be able to gain up to 10,000 Tesco Clubcard Points (over the lifetime of their membership) by redeeming Points Coupons in their club mailings, as well as receiving a free parking permit that allows them to park in ‘Parent and Child’ spaces closest to the store. And the Club’s new Welcome Brochure is packed with other exclusive special offers:

Customers shopping with Tesco Direct save 10% off any purchase for their baby through Tesco Direct. This service is particularly useful for large items such as cots, buggies, high chairs, car seats and bathroom accessories and everything is delivered straight to the customer’s door. There are over 8,000 new products available, with more than 1,000 especially for babies and toddlers.

RAC discount: There’s nothing more important when traveling with a little one than feeling safe in the knowledge that your car is in tip-top condition – but it can be expensive. That’s why Tesco has teamed up with RAC to offer a 20% discount over the lifetime of the membership, plus a £30 Tesco gift card.

Free Huggies Baby Beginnings Basket: For that little something extra, when new members buy a pack of Huggies Newborn Size 1 nappies in Tesco stores, they can redeem a basket of goodies, including wipes, powder, tissues, Baby’s First record book, money-saving coupons, a Huggies teddy bear and a muslin cloth.

Tesco Baby & Toddler Club is the longest running retailer Club for pregnant women and parents of children under the age of three.

Absolutely free to join, members receive tailored magazines every 3-6 months packed full of relevant, useful information and provide the ultimate helping hand when they need it most. This will also help family finances as each magazine comes with Points Coupons on many baby essentials and treats for members!
