These were the best-selling products at Walmart in January

Walmart Stores in the US over time

January 2019 was a month of change at the world's largest retailer. Most recently, it made headlines when it said it would offer bonuses to employees who don't call in sick. Earlier in the month, it canceled its "Scan & Go" cashierless pilot, citing a lack of customer adoption.

But Bentonville, Arkansas-born Walmart ($NYSE:WMT) remains a giant: 11,277 stores worldwide and revenue exceeding $500 billion.

So what were people buying at Walmart — specifically Walmart.com — in January? We have that data. But first, some spoilers: "Moana" was the most popular movie, Disney Bedtime Favorites was the best-selling book, and the Hot Wheels 9-pack was the most-popular toy.

The top fragrance was Vera Wang's Pretty Princess in the 3.4 oz spray bottle. Meanwhile, the cold weather brought Burt's Bees Baby 100% Natural Multipurpose Ointment to the top of the Personal Care charts. Dixon pencils remained a best-seller for Office products, and Nintendo's Switch Pro Controller dominated sales in the Video Games category.

The chart is based on sales-rank data tracked via Walmart.com. We averaged each product's sales rank and then re-ranked top-sellers based on how many days they remained in the best-selling ranks to assure that our list only contains consistent best sellers as opposed to single-day stars. As you can see in the list above, all products were best sellers for all 31 days of January.
