    8. Petronics created a smartphone-connected cat toy, which quietly collected the award for "best new cat product" from the American Pet Products Association.

    Promising review: "Finally, a toy that both animals and humans can enjoy. Worked well on all surfaces and got itself out of several tough spots. It is a bit on the expensive side, but when I consider the amount of money I already spent on toys that worked for a few days before crashing, or didn't work from the moment the batteries were installed, it's worth it. Autoplay is the best when you have something you need to get done and your cat needs some exercise." —NB

    Get it from Amazon for $149.99.

    9. Ionna Vautrin dreamt up a wild "factory candle" series for Eno Studio that imitates the curvature of factory chimneys.

    10. Amazon outdid itself with the Fire TV Stick 4K, a new best-in-class media streamer with super-quick Wi-Fi connectivity and an unbeatable price tag.

    Promising review: "I received the Fire TV Stick 4K on launch day. I own the previous model and this is a much better experience. First off, the remote is a huge improvement. The power button on the remote can turn on my TV, my receiver, Fire Stick, and switch the inputs automatically so the Fire Stick is on screen and ready to go with just one click of the power button. It's really nice. This is how it should have been all along. It gets even better, though: Let's say my TV is already on, and my receiver is set to a different input such as my FIOS TV box? All you do is click the home button on the remote and the remote switches the receiver to the correct HDMI input on the receiver for the Fire Stick! One remote to rule them all, and yes it controls volume on the receiver too! This is excellent. It's highly configurable. The setup is quite nice. You can define which inputs get picked when hitting the power and home button. You can define which device the volume buttons control. Amazon has done a great job with the Fire Stick 4K." —Adam

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99.

    12. Lego brought a 1685-piece Statue of Liberty architecture kit into the world.

    Promising review: "This is an absolutely beautiful architecture set. This one is different from the others in that it really gives height to the set, which allows for the folds of fabric in the statue to be seen and explored. Just a lot of fun to build, and I think this one will definitely get many comments. Kudos, Lego!" —Jeremy C.

    14. COSRX, the K-beauty brand behind the best-selling pimple patches, introduced a two-in-one serum that clears and tightens pores. (People with sensitive skin swear by it.)

    Promising review: "This is a miracle worker. I have very dry, sensitive skin that is acne prone. I had very large pores on and around my nose that frequently became clogged. I was desperate to find something that would clear them without drying or irritating my skin. This did it. I use this twice a day, two pumps rubbed in with my fingertips. After only one week, I have no clogged pores and have seen a significant decrease in their size. I know this may sound too good to be true, but this is a very real review. My skin is so smooth and soft now, I can't wait to see how it will improve as time goes on." —Autumn

    Get it from Amazon for $15.89.

    15. Sonos added one more critical favorite to its catalogue with the Beam, an affordable (comparatively speaking, at least) sound bar with voice-assistant integration.

    Promising review: "First, being a professional musician with very picky ears, I have to say that Sonos REALLY knows how to make a good-sounding speaker. Yes, they're pricey, but you really get what you pay for. I had already purchased two Sonos One speakers for music and loved them. For my TV sound I had a full 5.1 system with AV receiver, subwoofer, front and rear, center speakers. LOTS of stuff taking up LOTS of space. The sound was fantastic, but I have a small condo and it was way too much for the space. I was able to eliminate everything with this little Beam speaker. I paired it with with my two Sonos One speakers and the surround sound is almost as good as my full 5.1 previous system. I am THRILLED with the change." —Gadget freak in SF

    Get it from Amazon for $399 (available in black and white).

    16. Amazon released an updated, 100%- waterproof Kindle Paperwhite with two times the storage space but less physical bulk.

    21. Ikea leaned into small-space storage solutions in its 2018 catalogue — a favorite being this wall-mounted bamboo unit.

    Promising review: "Was very pleased to find that it required a minimum of screw holes to secure the uprights to the wall. Relatively simple installation. Having a level is highly recommended, because the wall anchors are hidden. The design is scalable and blends very well with different decor." —PetitDom

    Promising review: "This thing is SLEEK! I bought this for my new home's main floor guest bath. We wanted to provide guests with the convenience of the Squatty Potty without the eyesore of the white 7-inch one. I feel like if Kim and Kanye had a Squatty Potty, it would be this one." —Durga D
