These are some of Amazon’s most wished for items.
10. Smart Doorbell
A smart doorbell is basically a type of video home security that can be set up with your smart devices to allow you to keep an eye on any and everyone who steps on your premises — be it burglars, trespassers, or just neighborhood pranksters. The smart doorbell on most Amazon wish lists is the Video Doorbell by Ring. According to USA Today, it has high video quality and maintains a consistent feed. Plus, you can switch to battery power in the event of a power outage. And, they also come with built-in theft prevention, so if someone steals it, Amazon will replace it free of charge.
9. Echo Dot
If you’re looking to set up a smart home, then the Echo Dot is great gadget to start with. It’s a smart speaker that easily connects with all your smart home devices to perform a number of tasks, including streaming music, podcasts or the news via voice commands. You can even use voice commands through an Alexa personal assistant to answer questions. And, according to an article published by USA Today, there’s a new and improved Echo Dot on everyone’s wish list. It boasts higher audio quality, plus it comes with fabric speakers rather than the hard plastic ones of previous generations.
8. Memory Foam Mattress
Remember when memory foam pillows were all the rage? Well, now memory foam mattresses are all the rage. The one on most people’s wish lists is the Zinus Memory Foam 10-Inch Green Tea Mattress (yes, it’s made with green tea). It’s very popular for a couple of reasons. For one thing, it’s cheap (you can get it on Amazon for less than $200 or you can get the 6-in. twin version direct from Zinus for a little over $100). Reason number two is that it’s very comfortable. Not only do memory foam mattresses promote better sleep, they provide great support as well.
According to USA Today, “Instant Pots have increasingly become a staple in the modern kitchen.” In case you’ve never heard of this ingenious invention, the Instant Pot is a handy countertop device that does many of the same tasks done on a stove but in less time and with greater ease. The Instant Pot is a slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, food warmer, pressure cooker, and cake maker all rolled into one. Plus, you can use it for sautéing foods and for cooking eggs as well.
6. Mellanni Microfiber Bedsheet Set
These sheets are so popular that they recently sold out (don’t worry they’re back in stock). They have over 60,000 reviews on Amazon, with a 4.4-star rating. So, what makes people go so crazy over Mellanni Microfiber Bedsheet Set? According to a review by TODAY, they’re ultra soft, wrinkle-resistant, pill-resistant, and maintain the perfect temperature throughout the night. They even fit well without bunching or stretching, and they stay in place all night.
Price: $25 to $33
Sizes: Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, California King
5. Fire TV Sticks
Ever since the conversion from analog to digital signal, many people have been forced to subscribe to paid services like cable or satellite for TV entertainment. But, most people nowadays don’t watch TV anyway, or at least not as much as they used to, so it’s not even worth it to pay a huge bill for something they hardly ever use. Perhaps that’s why many people are turning to the many streaming services that let you watch TV shows and movies for little or nothing. For example, you can invest $50 in an Amazon Fire TV Stick and pick a subscription service — such as Hulu or Netflix — that starts at just $6 a month.
4. Handheld Tablets
Amazon Fire tablets are a big hit with shoppers this season. They’re lightweight, inexpensive, and come with options for the whole family. Plus, they are able to handle most third-party apps, including streaming ones like YouTube and Netflix. They also have high-quality digital screens, which makes them perfect e-reading devices. Amazon Fire tablets are also reliable and work well for everyday tasks. “You can get a lot of value out of them,” Antonette Asedillo, who oversees Consumer Reports’ tablet and computer testing, said in an article published by Consumer Reports.
If you were a kid in the 80s, you probably had the Lite-Brite toy — or perhaps the knockoff version, Lights Alive. And, according to Amazon, this is one of their customers’ most wished for items. We’re not sure who’s wishing for these items, but it’s most likely adults who were children when this toy was popular, since kids today wouldn’t know anything about Lite-Brite. Anyway, this actually isn’t the original Lite-Brite. It’s a new and improved version inspired by the original. According to the description on Amazon.com, it’s “brighter then ever with a bigger screen, more templates, and more pegs.” It also has four different light modes.
2. Luigi’s Mansion 3
It had been a long time coming, but Luigi’s Mansion is back for the Nintendo home console. The plot for this game is pretty much the same as the original: Luigi uses a flashlight and vacuum cleaner, along with the help of Gooigi, a clone of Luigi who appeared in the Nintendo 3DS remake of Luigi’s Mansion, to fight off ghosts and save his family and friends. Luigi’s Mansion 3 was released on October 31, 2019 for the Nintendo Switch.
1. Toy Story 4
Toy Story 4 hit movie theaters June 21, 2019 and quickly became a hit with moviegoers, hence the reason why it’s on everyone’s wish list. But, in case you’re one of the few who hasn’t seen it yet, you might want to stop reading because we’re going to give away the plot — well just a little bit of it anyway, LOL. Here goes:
A new toy named Forky joins Woody, Buzz and the gang on a family road trip with Bonnie that takes them on wild quests, introduces them to unexpected new characters, and reunites them with a long-lost friend. Kenneth Turan of the Los Angeles Times refers to it as “a soaring masterpiece stuffed with spectacular animation, humor and heart.”
“TOY STORY 4 will blow you away,” Turan added.
