If you’re interested in the rarities marketed through the Jeff Bezos platform, today we review the eleven rarest products you can buy on Amazon today, from human skulls to toilet paper that glows in the dark.
It seems that it was in another life when Amazon began its journey as a digital bookstore. It was the year 1995, the headquarters was circumscribed to a humble garage and Jeff Bezos was about to baptize the project as Cadabra. However, the first seed of the gigantic empire was already germinating: only in its first month of operation, Amazon managed to sell books in 45 countries.
Today, more than twenty years later, it has greatly diversified its business model, Jeff Bezos is the richest person in modern history and the king of ecommerce brings together some 304 million users and 3,000 million products in eleven markets. Each day 1.3 million products are added to its catalog and only in our country one of every seven euros spent online goes to the pockets of the platform.
In short, how far is left when Amazon aspired only to become a digital bookstore. Nowadays, the online giant markets everything from fresh food products to cars, electric scooters, Kindle devices, smartphones, fashion and beauty products or household appliances, among other things. If we distance ourselves from the more conventional products and focus on the oddities, these are the most peculiar and strange objects that are sold on Amazon.
