Amazon Sells Tens of Millions of Alexa-enabled Devices During Holiday Shopping Season

Another record-setting holiday for Amazon.

Amazon announced that the Holiday shopping season 2017 was the biggest yet in the history of the Jeff Bezos led giant enterprise. The company makes the best-selling products on themselves. The Echo Dot and the Fire TV stick are the top sellers of the Holidays 2017.

In fact, Amazon said that they managed to sell tens of millions of Alexa-enabled devices worldwide. The number is millions higher worldwide this year than last year’s holiday season. These are astonishing numbers, demolishing the voice assistant competition.

The dimensions of the sales growth appear to be substantial. Amazon did not reveal actual overall sales numbers, which will be part of the earnings release. There are though tons of mind-blowing facts Amazon has released about the Holiday shopping season on

This season, Amazon customers purchased enough WowWee Fingerlings Interactive Baby Monkey toys on to hang end-to-end down the Empire State Building more than 100 times. customers purchased enough TVs to create nearly 2,500 towers the size of the Space Needle.

Amazon customers purchased enough littlebits Star Wars Droid Inventor Kits on to man an Imperial-II class Star Destroyer.

Amazon customers purchased enough Calvin Klein products on during the holiday to give five items to every attendee at Coachella 2017.

Amazon customers purchased enough shoes on during the holiday season were lined up end-to-end, they would stretch from Alaska to Miami.

This holiday season, customers purchased enough Wickedly Prime Truffle Spreads to make over half a million dipped strawberries.

Treasure Truck customers purchased enough holiday wreaths that when stacked, one on top of the other, would reach the top of the Empire State Building nearly five and a half times. customers purchased enough Instant Pot pressure cookers this holiday to make more than nine million bowls of chili at once. customers purchased enough AmazonBasics hangers to hold an outfit for each person in the city of Houston, TX – the fourth most populated city in the U.S.

If you lined up all the copies of Jeff Kinney’s, The Getaway that Amazon sold during the holiday season, you would reach the height of 444 Saturn V rockets.

If you collected all of the copies of Walter Isaacson’s, Leonardo Da Vinci that Amazon sold over the holidays, they would weigh the equivalent of 25,417 gallons of paint – enough paint to cover over Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel ceiling 1,592 and a half times.

The next big Amazon shopping event is Prime Day 2018, which is likely in July again like Prime Day 2017.
