Harry, Niall, Zayne, Liam and Louis were put together on UK X Factor, they started off as soloists and when they did not go through as individuals the judges decided to put together these five very lucky boys they have now topped not only the British charts but also the US with over 1176,000 copies sold, making them the first British group ever to enter the charts at number in the US with a debut album – way to go guys!
Last year the one direction dolls were launched and with the huge success of that the new set of ear buds, walkie talkies, alarm clocks, boom boxes and more will likely be under your Christmas tree this year!
