    Amazon has a list of products called “Movers and Shakers,” which is pretty much just fancy talk for things that are currently “trending.”

    Here are some of the coolest and most useful things found on the list this week.

    1. Enact your will on unsuspecting virtual people with the latest installment of Sims.

    Spend two hours building a family, three hours designing their home, then actually play with them for 15 minutes before getting bored.

    Price: $19.99+ (available in digital and physical copies).

    2. Take pictures with something other than your phone using a pink camera.

    Promising review: "Amazing product. I love printing photos and it has never been easier. It works great and pictures come out better than I thought they would! Super cute and convenient for our daily life. I'm keen on recording my daily life by taking a lot of photos and I also will upload the pictures to Instagram and Facebook. This is exactly what I wanted." —Anthony Jess

    Price: $65.99

    3. Have your nerdiest friends over and play a board game dedicated to math.

    Promising review: "We just received the Prime Climb math game the other day and really enjoy it. One of our kids, who is less interested in math than our other, was doing multiplication, addition, subtraction, and division without tension or help. This excitement has only happened with a couple of other board games (Cover Your Assets and Sleeping Queens)." —Gitzi

    Price: $29.95

    4. Ride an inflatable flamingo at your next pool party.

    Promising review: "We bought a couple of these flamingos for our trip to Universal Studios. The hotel we stayed at had a lazy river and you could bring your own tubes, or rent tiny ugly ones for $10 an hour! We floated down the river in these awesome things and were watched by everyone. They asked where we got them. They are just so cute! Great quality and color! They were also very easy to blow up with a hair dryer. We brought them home and will use them in our pool." —C.S. Green

    Price: $19.99

    5. Remember to zap all those germs on your phone with this special device that uses UV light to disinfect your gadgets.

    Promising review: "If you are a germaphobe like me, this will be perfect for you. This PhoneSoap UV Sanitizer sanitizes your phone in about 6 minutes. You just plug it in and close it with your phone in there and it will automatically turn off when it's done. You can run your phone cord through the bottom and charge it while it is in there as well. How cool is that?" —Tina S.

    Price: $47.99

    6. Stay awake without drinking coffee with these futuristic edible cubes.

    Promising review: "Awesome idea to be able to chew a delicious coffee-flavored gummy packed with 50mg of caffeine along with B-6 and B-12. Very excited to find out they are vegan friendly! Love the convenience while at work and before a workout." —Jade Martin

    Price: $39

    7. Diminish your eye bags while feeling like a million bucks with *gold* eye patches.

    Promising review: "Easy to use and they do their job. I was quite pleased after trying them out for the first time. I'd definitely recommend to friends. They stay on your face after application which is great so they won't slide around when changing position or walking around." —Charisma

    Price: $4.56

    8. Create amazing works of art with a pack of clay.,

    Promising review: "This clay was easy to work with. My husband is turning 50. I wanted to make something to go on top of his cake. So I made a clay man sitting on a couch sleeping with his remote still in his hand. So him! I will buy again if I have another project." —Laura Imrisek

    Price: $9.99

    9. Finally get around to sewing on all those patches you bought on Etsy with this super affordable sewing machine.

    Promising review: "As a first time user, it took about 30 min to figure out how to operate the machine, especially picking up the bobbin thread part. However, since the manual was well-prepared, easy, and precise, there will be no problem in understanding the directions. It was very easy to operate, even for me. The foot pedal was very convenient. The electric cord is kind of short, ~three feet, so you may need an extra extension cord. I am satisfied with this product. I hope it lasts for a while." —wjsong61

    Price: $19.99

    10. Never dip your paintbrush in water again thanks to these water-filled brushes perfect for watercolors.

    Promising review: "I am new to water coloring and I decided to give it a try on some of my coloring pages to fill in larger areas. I've used them a few days now and they are working beautifully. The brushes slide easily over the paper even in smaller detail areas.

    The brushes are very simple to use. Just squeeze a minimum of water into the brush because it doesn't take much to wet the paint. The water reservoirs hold enough to do a lot of painting without refilling." —Nyla

    Price: $9.99

    11. Soothe your face with a highly rated retinol face cream.

    Promising review: "Go ahead and treat yourself while you're here to all of the LilyAna Naturals products — your skin will thank you! I really like this retinol cream. My skin has no negative reactions to it, no dryness, no redness, no sensitivity. It's light, absorbs well, doesn't have an odor, and I can tell a difference in my skin's texture. I love that it's been non-irritating for me and gives me great moisture without being overpowering." —Chelsea

    Price: $18.99

    12. Take steady videos of your dog with a grippy smartphone tripod.

    Promising review: "This tripod is good because you can easily hook or place it anywhere you want. It's very useful when you travel as a group and want to take pictures of all your group members. Simply mount your phone to the tripod, attach it the place you want, and take the picture using a wireless remote." —ShaP

    Price: $17.99

    13. Look like a pinup model in this super cute retro one-piece bathing suit.

    Promising review: "Everyone loved this suit. I wear a size 2 and have a 32 DD chest and ordered a small. It fit perfectly. My new favorite suit." —christina wade

    Price: $26.99

    14. Look adorable while taking pictures with your Fujifilm camera thanks to this rainbow camera strap.

    Promising review: "As pictured and described. We got the white camera for my daughter for Christmas. Wanted to be sure she didn't outgrow any of those other crazy colors. This strap added some fun and color to the white camera. Would recommend for sure." —Brenda S.

    Price: $6.99

    15. Delight your inner child with 100 (!!!) assorted Pokémon cards.

    Be warned: You may get some duplicates when you order this, so buy with caution.

    Promising review: "I bought these cards to pass out at my son's birthday party. I read previous reviews and was worried about getting lots of multiples of the same card. But I wasn't too worried since the cards were not all for one kid; I would be passing them out to many kids so if there were multiples it wouldn't be that big of a deal.

    However, I was pleasantly surprised that in the entire 100 pack that I received there were only about 8 multiples. I call this pack a win!!! It worked great for my party and it would have worked great just for one kid (since my pack only had a few multiple cards). And there were some very well-known Pokemon in the pack and some of my kids' favorites. I would order these again." —Callie Gerber

    Price: $10.93

    16. Never second guess the cleanliness of dishes again with this dirty/clean magnet sign.

    Promising review: "This thing does its job. Very sturdy too, for the price. I added color on it to make it easier to see from far away. Buy this!" —Amazon Customer

    Price: $4.37

    17. Get this polka dot maxi dress and wear it all summer long.

    Promising review: "I love it! I thought it was a little too big until I realized there were strap adjustments! It came with a gorgeous necklace too. I couldn't ask for a better dress!" —Apinkxx

    Price: $12.99+

    18. Inject some novelty into a classic card game with emoji-themed Uno.

    Promising review: "This game was a HUGE hit with my Emoji-loving 7-year-old. The grownups in the family have been enjoying playing with her as well. The Emoji version has a couple of Emoji-specific updates that make the game even more fun than the original. For something that provides so much enjoyment but costs so little and takes up so little space on your shelves, it's hard to go wrong with this one!" —BadgerBadgerBadger

    Price: $8.80
