BEST-SELLING ITEMS ON AMAZON

What’s Trending This Year in Toys
Amazon just put out their list of their top 100 recommended toys, which should give you some ideas of what will be trending in the toy area.
While the current Amazon top sellers point to the best bargain-priced toys, the toy industry is seeing a surge in interactive toys for children. These toys teach kids how to take care of another person or animal and encourage a nurturing behavior. An example of these is the Fingerling Babies that were wildly popular last year and the year before. Or, you can go a little high-tech with a robotic puppy that responds to touch and commands. The L.O.L. Surprise! dolls and a newcomer on the scene that is similar, the Blume Dolls, are high up on the top trending items this year as well.
The Fire TV Stick and the Wyze Cam have remained best sellers in the electronics department for a few years. With the increase of streaming media and security devices, it’s no wonder these low-cost items are in high demand.

Bonus Item: This is genius and albeit a bit pricey, is a much needed item that would make a great gift for anyone (I mean, who doesn’t have a phone? Or, germs?)
Leggings and Jeggings are top of the list of best-selling clothes (for the ladies at least) – and Tunics and Long Shirt Dresses are still high on the list as well.
It always seems weird to me that hairdryers are in the appliance category, but they do always manage to top the list of best selling items. Portable ice-makers are also always on the list, and the baby mini-fridge that is on the best sellers page, is just TOO dang cute (would be perfect to bring to the office to keep your lunch or creamer isolated from the general population).
Category: Arts, Crafts, & Sewing
Not surprisingly, paints, markers, and glue – top the list of best-sellers for this category.
Category: Office Products
Am I the only one who gets extreme pleasure out of laminating things? Apparently not, considering laminating sheets take spots #2 and #3 of the top selling Office Products. Tape seems to be a close second, with a butt cushion in between (posture is important, people!). A reasonably priced printer and hanging file storage is also in the top selling list for office supply products.
Category: Kitchen & Dining
I own the scale below (bought it years ago) – so I can attest it is a good one. The Instant Pot was a craze that really took off last year and looks like it hasn’t lost any steam (get it, kitchen pun?). The Dash Mini is a surprising hit (to me, at least) as it makes a very small waffle or other waffle cooked item like eggs or tater tots. Brita water filters are great, I used one for years until I got a water line filter. The travel mug is a no-brainer, keeping your drinks hot 5 hrs/cold 12 hrs in a spill-proof and lockable container.
Category: Musical Instruments
The personal karaoke microphone looks pretty fun, I am considering it to replace the monster karaoke machine I have in my back bedroom. Also on the top sellers list for musical instruments are guitar strings, tuners, and capos, as well as interesting new things to play like the Kalimba. If you do anything that requires a microphone, there’s an inexpensive one here for you to consider.
Category: Beauty & Personal Care
Here are the top selling items in Beauty and Personal care. A hairbrush/smoother/lifter, makeup wipes, q-tips, scrunchies (tons of them), and my favorite facial clay.
Category: Wind Chimes
What’s more relaxing than a soothing, melodic wind chime? I have my eye on the agate ones myself.
Category: Computers & Accessories
Yep – the usual stuff you would expect to see here – keyboards, tablets, monitors, laptops, and headphones.
From outlet covers to baby gates, to carriers, the top selling items in the baby category is a great place to start if you need to buy baby-centric gifts. Of course, I left off the more disturbing (to me) items, but most of the top sellers do revolve around baby poop and the removal of it.
