Amazon Launches Toys and Games Store in Canada

July 9, 2013

We want you to find the same value and selection you expect from the other stores and we'll be working to add new selection and brands to the store. "Even though the store is in beta, our primary features should all be functional, so feel free to search, browse and buy. But be sure to come back often, as we'll only be making them better." The toy store portal page gives shoppers various ways to shop - by price (Shop by price - $10 and under; $25 and under; $50 and under); by gender (Girls' Toys & Games; Boys' Toys & Games); and by age (0-2; 2-4; 5-7; 8-13; and 14+). It also serves up Featured Categories such as Action Figures, Preschool Toys, and Dolls & Accessories. And scrolling down the page brings shoppers to slideshow features allowing them to scroll through "Top-Rated Building Toys;" "Best Selling Educational Electronics;" and Featured Brands & Characters. And not surprisingly, the Amazon Canada toy store has lots of ways to filter items in the column on the left side of the page. Amazon has toys been picky about third-party sellers in the toy category, and it further restricts the category each holiday shopping season. However, sellers unable to list toys directly during the holiday-shopping "blackout" period can do so using Amazon's FBA fulfillment service Amazon Canada told shoppers if there were specific products or features they'd like to in the Toys store, they could email Amazon at About the author: Ina Steiner is co-founder and Editor of EcommerceBytes and has been reporting on ecommerce since 1999.
