Amazon is the go-to spot to buy pretty much anything you need at any time. Since the online retail giant sells over 12 million items (yowza!), it can be pretty overwhelming to narrow things down.
To help you find the most popular items with the best reviews, we're introducing our weekly Techwalla series: Amazon Best Sellers. We're kicking things off with electronic toys for kids. (Your kids can thank us later.)

2. Walkie Talkies - $23.99
These walkie talkies from Selieve Toys are easy for kids to use and will keep them entertained for hours–or at least minutes. They're small and durable for those tiny, clumsy hands you love so much. These fun walkie talkies are available in five color options.
