SEATTLE, United States — Amazon saw its biggest shopping day in history on Cyber Monday, with more products ordered worldwide than any other day.

In the five days starting with Thanksgiving and continuing through to Cyber Monday, customers purchased millions more products than in the same period last year. Amazon customers ordered more than 18 million toys and 13 million fashion items on Black Friday and Cyber Monday combined.

The company says sales by small and medium-sized businesses worldwide grew more than 20 percent year over year on Black Friday. The new Echo Dot Alexa device was the top selling product on Amazon globally, in any category over the holiday weekend, and Whole Foods Market broke its all-time record of turkeys sold during Thanksgiving season. But a surge in online holiday sales may bring a February hangover.
