2010 Top Shopped Report From eBay

Earlier today, eBay released their annual “Top Shopped Report”. This report provides insight into the pop culture moments and fashion trends that captivated shoppers’ curiosity, and cash during the year. The report also provides a look into the future, and although toys and fashion trends will most likely always be on a list of top things people shop for, technology (iPhone/iPad like devices) will be there too. If you look at the list provided below you will find that 2010 was all about Apple, the World Cup and toys. You will find that items such as Barbie and Hot Wheels have been on the list for many many years. You’ll also see some highly sought after technology devices like Apple’s iPhone and iPad are included. As you are probably aware, the adoption of Apple’s iPhone and iPad has been phenomenal. Other than the fact that iPhone/iPad are both simple and have the ability to do tons of things, one of the main reasons that they are doing so well has to due with their market reach. The iPhone and iPad have proven to be impartial to age and gender. Whether you are young or old, man or women, chances are that you want an iPhone/iPad or already have one.

Here are some numbers released from eBay:

Apple’s iPhone 4 (1,634,674 related items sold) and iPad (621,399) dominated the tech scene. On the sporting scene, it was a buzzing plastic instrument at the World Cup in South Africa (more than 265,000 vuvuzelas sold). Classic toys like Barbie (1,178,909 related items sold) and Hot Wheels (748,140) also made a comeback.

eBay based its results on analyzed sales and search data across categories in its online Marketplace to come up with this year’s list below:

1. iPhone
2. Barbie
3. Military jackets
4. Hot Wheels
5. iPad
6. World cup
