No primary category set

Christmas is the busiest time of the year for the online retail sector but what will be this year’s top selling toys, games and electronics? Amazon analysed their sales patterns and publish lists of their top selling products by category ahead of the festive season.

  1. Not sure if I’m missing something but this for 2011 right? I’m not really up with toys so I wouldn’t know about them but the video games and phones are so last year.

    Try Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Forza Horizon, Galaxy S3 as some of the top sellers this year
