AirPods may look goofy, but they topped Best Buy's sales ranks along with LOL Surprise Dolls

1 week ago by Joshua Fruhlinger in Facts, News

If you haven't heard of the LOL Surprise! Glam Glitter Series dolls, chances are you will as we head into the holiday season. These $10.99 collectible figures have become one of the hottest items sold at Best Buy, shooting to the retailer's top-10 items sold in October.

According to sales-rank data we track for Best Buy ($NYSE:BBY), the collectible figures came in at an average sales rank of 55.96, having appeared in the top-ranked products for 23 days of the month of October. This put it at spot #9 ahead of the Sony ($NYSE:SNE) PlayStation 4, antivirus software, and even Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Meanwhile, Apple's AirPods wireless headphones shot to the #1 spot for October for their first time (they were #2 in September behind the Amazon Fire TV Stick).

Apple ($NASDAQ:AAPL) also continued to sell its Lighting-to-3.5mm Headphone Adapter like it's going out of style. The ubiquitous $9 headphone adapter landed at #3 for the month of October, up one spot since September. They were outranked only by Apple AirPods and the Amazon Fire TV Stick.
