4. A '50s-style swing dress you'll kick up your heels in.,

I returned a telescope recently and I am so glad I did because it did not even begin to give me the beautiful image these binoculars provide. Can't wait to lay in my hammock and explore the Milky Way tonight!" —Brock

Price: $56

9. Fallout 4. Funfunfun. Realistic!

Promising review: "Fallout 4 is a visually striking video game that launches you straight into the irradiated wasteland that is post–nuclear fallout America. There was always something special about this game series; the story is there, but you can decide how the game will be played. I would recommend to anyone who likes dogs and killing mutants." —Slacker-Senpai

14. A lunchbox that'll get some workplace chuckles if it isn't actually filled with organs — human or otherwise.

16. Five sets of superhero duds for saving the world.,

Promising review: "I got this for my little girl's 7th birthday and she was so excited. When I asked her if she liked it, she said rather severely, 'No, Dadda, I don't like it. I LOOOOOOVE it.' She then proceeded to wear Spidey home from the restaurant. Frankly, that's all that mattered. The joy it has brought my little girl over the past month has been immeasurable." —M. Bostick

Price: $24.95

17. A set of squish-able, re-sealable pouches for little ones fighting the utensil establishment.

Promising review: "My daughter does not like to eat. She is extremely independent, but she is also less than a year old. She wants to hold the spoon, she wants to pick up the other words, the entire area around her high chair is a disaster. These pouches have helped so much. She actually gets some food into her now! I love the fact that I can fill them easily with what ever I want to feed her. The bottom seals very tightly. So tightly that it is sometimes a little hard to reopen! They clean out easily and I have not found any leftover food particles." —Kalhana

Price: $14.99 for six.

18. Packing cubes that help you get away from it all.

Promising review: "These packing cubes made me feel like I had my life together while I traveled Europe for a couple weeks. I don't, but they made me feel like I did." —Mina Holmes

Price: $24.95. Available in four colors.

19. A RFID-blocking passport wallet that carries everything! Your whole life, even!

Promising review: "This passport wallet is very different from the passport folders that I have used until now. The earlier folders were long and only really fit into a carry-on bag; this wallet is slim and short, and it fits into a shirt pocket or trousers with no difficulty. This makes it much easier to move through airport check-in, airport security, immigration, customs, and so forth. It's RFID Blocking as well, makes it all the more useful for holding my ID and credit cards." —Joseph Boenzi

Price: $6.99. Available in five colors.
