40% of Black Friday Top 5 Sellers Are Amazon Products; 60% Are Smart Home Gadgets

John Koetsier for Forbes:  Two of Black Friday's top five selling products are Amazon products. Three of them are smart home gadgets.

According to Wikibuy, the top five sellers were:

  • Echo Dot 2nd Generation
  • Fire TV Stick with Alex Voice Remote
  • TP-Link Smart Plug
  • Instant Pot 7-in-1 Pressure Cooker
  • 23andMe Personal Genetic Service

The top toys were WowWee Fingerlings Interactive Baby Monkeys (no, I've never heard of them before either) and Melissa & Doug Let's Play House! Dust, Sweep and Mop. That last toy sounds like a parents' psy-ops experiment to get kids to do housework, but no, it is a real product.

Wikibuy is a service for finding the lowest prices online. 1.5 million people use it, and since Wikibuy sees what they're purchasing, it can estimate top products, leading stores, and more.

According to those 1.5 million people, the top electronics gadgets were Powerbeats3 Wireless In-Ear Headphones and a 60-inch Sony 4K TV: KD60X690E. The best deals on gadgets, however, were a Logitech webcam (C310) which was 42% off, and an Xbox 360 for 38% off.  Full Article:
