The race toward Christmas is on, and with more consumers turning to digital retailers than ever before, a clearer picture of what’s hot is beginning to emerge.
Amazon revealed that 2020 has already delivered the biggest sales numbers of any holiday shopping season in the company’s history. Toys and games are contributing to the sales success, with top sellers tracked from Oct. 15-Nov. 30 revealing some surprising winners that are filling virtual carts as gift-givers stock up.
Some of the top sellers for the holiday season thus far include Mattel‘s Hot Wheels 20 Car Gift Pack, Learning Resources‘ Spike The Fine Motor Hedgehog, the LeapFrog Learning Friends 100 Words Book, and MGA Entertainment‘s L.O.L. Surprise! Present Surprise Doll.
