Amazon Data Gives Glimpse Into Life Under Lockdown

Amazon Data Gives Glimpse Into Life Under Lockdown

While the world outside may seem at a stand-still, the world of online shopping might just be busier than ever. New data from Amazon gives us a glimpse into what Americans are buying—and an interesting look at life under lockdown.

While many online purchases steer toward necessities like groceries, cat litter, or toilet paper, lots are clear signs of a country trying to make the best out of being stuck at home.

It may come as no surprise that among the most popular non-essentials are toys and games. According to Amazon, classic items like children’s paint, Connect-4, and Jenga are the top three in their category. Parents are also finding fun after the kids have gone to bed, with the more adult “Cards Against Humanity”.

Evening entertainment is clearly a priority as people rediscover just how much TV there is to catch up on. The Fire TV Stick and the Roku are both devices that help find shows and movies across multiple platforms, and are current best-selling electronics. While isolated, lots of new people also seem to be finding a new companion in Alexa, Amazon’s home assistant.

Things aren’t strictly fun-and-games, though; lots of people are taking lockdown as an opportunity to better themselves. According to NJ.com, at-home workouts and dreams of better sleep are hot on everyone’s minds. Memory foam mattresses are selling even faster than exercise equipment like resistance bands and jump ropes.

Even with possible delays, people are still hopeful that the return of spring to their back yards will make quarantine easier. Data shows that Americans are stocking up on grass seed, plant food, hummingbird nectar, and even hammocks.

To learn more about how Americans are shopping online, read the full list here.
