RTE reports that figures from Amazon.co.uk show that sales of Niall dolls grew by seven per cent on last year, while Harry dolls dropped by 15 points, putting him all the way down in third place behind Niall and Louis Tomlinson.
Ulrike Wingenter-Davey, from Amazon, said, "It's no longer the foppish curls of Harry but the Irish charm of Niall that seems to be a hit with One Direction fans."
The news about Horan’s selling-power comes just as 1D World, a One Direction store, opened its doors in Penn Plaza in New York City, much to the pleasure of legions of Directioners.
