Here's what really sold best at Amazon on Christmas day

11 months ago by Joshua Fruhlinger in People

Amazon is making a bit of a fuss this morning, announcing that this was the e-commerce giant's best holiday season yet. In a press release titled "Amazon Customers Made This Holiday Season Record-Breaking with More Items Ordered Worldwide Than Ever Before", the company said that customers not only bought more stuff than ever, but that they did so by purchasing Amazon own devices like the Echo Dot, Fire TV Stick 4K, and Echo.

While we don't have access to actual sales number, we do have access to sales ranks which reveal the products that sold beat within a given category. It turns out that Amazon was right: The Fire TV Stick 4K did indeed sell best. That is, it sold best within its own category, "Amazon Devices & Accessories".

The Echo Dot did sell best in Amazon's Electronics category, however. Meanwhile, Amazon noted that L.O.L. Dolls sold incredibly well, confirming what we've reported numerous times. However, they weren't the top-toys-category seller. That honor went to Thomas & Friends' Surprise Cargo Pack on Christmas day.

Another notable top-seller includes Michelle Obama's autobiography Becoming, which continues to blaze best-seller trails. Meanwhile, the soundtrack to "A Star Is Born" topped the CDs & Vinyl ranks and Sonya Yoerg's True Places was the top Kindle e-book seller.

The full list can be found below. Happy Boxing Day!
