    Amazon has a list of products called "Movers and Shakers," which is pretty much fancy talk for things that are ~trending~.

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

    1. A variety pack of ready-to-eat oatmeal to replenish your carbs on the go, because why spoon it when you can squeeze it?


    The variety pack includes two pouches each of the Apple Quinoa Cinnamon, Raspberry Coconut, and Blueberry Acai Flax flavors.

    Promising review: "I'm glad I'm trying to eliminate gluten from my diet because I otherwise wouldn't have found this delicious product. At first, the thought of oatmeal in a squeeze pack was kinda gross, but I was totally hooked after my first taste. The texture is like a fully-cooked, smooth oatmeal with no large chunks. The taste is absolutely delicious, so delicious I tore the pouch in half to get every last bit out, so delicious I will lie to my family and tell them it's awful so no one else eats it. Seriously, it's that good and I don't even like oatmeal." –NJ2F

    Price: $14.24 (for a pack of six)

    2. A down-to-earth introduction to astrophysics guaranteed to give you a ~grasp~ on the nature of space and time before the inevitable heat death of the universe.


    Promising review: "You can tell Dr. Tyson put his heart and intellect into this book. I've learned more from this book than I have in all of my science classes throughout the years. I'm so happy I purchased this book and the narration on my Kindle Fire because the narration adds so much more. This book gives you the facts that are the most interesting, informative, and important, without dumbing-down anything. Neil deGrasse Tyson is my role model, because I want to be an astrophysicist or aerospace engineer, and reading this book inspired me all the more to go to college and major in one of the two." –Amazon Customer

    Price: $11.37

    3. A tea dress with vintage vibes, so you can finally connect the dots on how to style that petticoat you've got stashed away.


    Promising review: "I've bought this dress in three colors, just this summer, and worn all three to weddings. Strangers have stopped me to compliment me on these dresses, because they're classy, fun, and timeless. Don't skip the petticoat and you'll bring down the house!" β€”Jessica L Redding

    Price: $19.99+ (available in sizes S-4X and 42 colors)

    4. A gravity-powered logic game that'll develop your critical-thinking skills until they tower above your friends, grandkids, and/or various breeds of cats and sharks.


    Players choose one of 60 challenge-cards (ranging in difficulty from beginner to expert) then position towers on the game-grid so a marble can pass from a designated start-position to a Target Tower.

    Promising review: "I bought this as a gift for my grandsons, who liked it and began playing with it the minute they opened it, but it was just as intriguing for our sons (their dad and uncle)!" β€”S. Wright

    Price: $26.49

    5. A heavy-duty sewing machine with 23 built-in stitches so you can hem those mom jeans you just thrifted into the pants of your well-cropped dreams.


    Promising review: "I bought one of these for my nieces, as they are just learning to sew and at an age where they're inquisitive about doing things with their hands other than texting. I have five machines, ranging from Singer to Kenmore, and a serger, as well as an antique Singer Feather Weight machine that sews flawlessly. I've been sewing for 45 years so I know a little something about the craft. Anyway, I viewed loads of videos on Youtube about the machine before purchasing it, and was convinced it was the ideal machine for my nieces. When it arrived, I unboxed it, went over the instructions, and tried it out β€” every stitch, feature, and buttonhole β€” and I was extremely impressed. The ease of use, low noise level, speed, not having to adjust the tension when changing fabric weights (of course, you'll have to do it with extreme variances) can't be beat, at this price. After playing with the machine for a couple days, I was so impressed I bought one for myself." β€”Stan M.

    Price: $129.93

    6. An all-in-one rechargeable trimmer kit for anyone who wants to freshen their stubble at home or on the subway (late) to work.


    This kit includes a stainless-steel handle, full-size trimmer, precision-foil shaver, precision-detail trimmer, extra-wide hair trimmer, nose and ear trimmer, six extra-wide hair guards, three beard guards, two stubble guards, two body guards, an eyebrow guard, storage bag, cleaning brush, and power cord. And the trimmer's battery boasts a five-hour runtime.

    Promising review: "This is Norelco's top-of-the-line trimmer with its most powerful motor, the longest battery life, and the largest array of attachments. This trimmer has quite handily replaced my sideburn trimmer, nose hair trimmer, and eyebrow trimmer, because it does all three much better than the cheap battery-operated variants I've been using. If you are looking for the highest quality small-scale trimmer available on Amazon, you have found it." β€”bareyb

    Price: $58.05

    7. A life-changing white noise machine with ten loop-free sound options to lullaby all the babes in your life.


    Sound options include white noise, rain, birds, brook, two different types of lullabies, ocean waves, typhoon, thunder, and brown noise.

    Promising review: "Absolutely essential for traveling! Compact. We bought two to take on a cruise and (with doors closing hard, near the elevator and stairs, right below the pools) we didn't hear a thing! Planning on buying more, as my adult-children keep hijacking ours for their business trips." β€”Minnesota PattyPaws

    Price: $23.97

    8. A portable and collapsible car organizer that'll get the junk out of your backseat and into your trunk.


    Promising review: "Never thought something so basic would make me so happy! I recently purchased a smaller car with ridiculously-small interior compartments, no behind-the-seat pockets, etc. I bought this to put in its trunk and it decluttered my car! It's well constructed, sturdy and does exactly what it advertises. Pleased with this purchase!" β€”M4

    Price: $11.99

    9. A pair of compact binoculars so you can admire from afar all the birds that don't APPRECIATE the breadcrumbs you brought them.


    These binoculars have waterproof lenses for sightseeing in the rain and an anti-slip grip that'll keep them in your hands.

    Promising review: "Took these binoculars to see Cavalia Odysseo from the nosebleed section and they gave me an excellent view of the horses and acrobatics. I could easily see the violin soloist, the Spanish guitarist, and the enchanting vocalist behind the shrouds on the balconies, and I will never again watch a stage performance without these binoculars." β€”Mr Somerth

    Price: $27.80

    10. A 24-pack of all-natural coconut water for anyone who doesn't have the time to puncture coconuts with bendy straws.


    Promising review: "Taste like coconut water straight from the tree." β€”Mommabear

    Price: $25.65

    11. A sound-activated strobe lamp that'll turn the light of the party into the life of the party.


    Promising review: "I purchased this for a little girl that absolutely loves to have dance parties in the dark. The lights are bright (so I can see where I'm going without upsetting her by turning the lights on) and colorful. There's even a setting that changes the lights in time with whatever music is playing, which means I don't have to carry the remote and change the setting enough times to maintain my toddler's attention. This would be great for college students looking to party or other parents with kids who like to dance." β€”Katelynn Lippitt

    Price: $12.99

    12. A doggie doorbell so you can finally know what your pupper is thinking, as long as those thoughts involve turning the Outside World into a bathroom.


    Promising review: "We got a French bulldog and he was proving hard to potty train, so someone suggested we try these potty bells. We showed him how to tap them, then immediately put him outside and told him 'go potty.' When he came inside, I had a treat ready for him, a specific treat he received at no other time besides potty training. I thought it would take a few days, but, much to our shock, our puppy went and nudged the bells with his nose about a hour later. He is now eight months old and uses the bells to go outside, for business or play. It’s a great communication tool. We sometimes have to call his bluff, and he will either walk away or hit the bells again to let us know he really needs out." β€”Amy Archibald

    Price: $4.95

    13. A waterproof and drop-proof bluetooth speaker that'll be ready to throw down at your next pool party or bathtub concert.


    On a full charge, this speaker's battery has a 10-hour runtime.

    Promising review: "After a few years of trying inexpensive ($35 or less) speakers, I recently splurged and purchased this. I AM IN LOVE. This is the speaker I've always wanted. Amazing sound (great volume, sufficient bass, crisp, clear), very easy to use (smart button placement; on speakers I purchased before this one, the buttons were too close together) and compact. The 360 sound is a huge bonus, as is the waterproof feature. I think I will stick to this line of speakers forever. Seriously, IN LOVE." β€”CC

    Price: $68.99+ (available in 11 colors)

    14. A 200-pair pack of fluorescent earplugs for the times when the only things you want to be loud are the colors jammed in your ears.


    Promising review: "I'm a little embarrassed to say that finding earplugs has been a lifelong search and an exercise in futility (okay, not lifelong, but for the past nine years since I started wearing them to sleep). After years of this, I finally thought to look on Amazon and found these. I'm not sure why they're colored like they're carrying a glow stick on their way to a rave, but I don't care. I've gotten the best sleep I've had in years. And, even though they shut out all the noise that bothers me, I'm still able to hear my kids when they come in to wake me up at the crack of dawn (perhaps it's their clear, piercing toddler voices). Thank you, rave earplugs." β€”The Yellow House

    Price: $19.94

    15. A stainless-steel wine tumbler that'll be ready to toast all the wine glasses you dropped and shattered on the way to buying this one.


    Each tumbler includes a vacuum-sealed lid for the drinks you really don't want to spill.

    Promising review: "Perfect! This tumbler keeps my wine wonderfully cold and, when I want to sit outside on the porch and enjoy a glass of wine, the lids keeps all of those pesky Texas gnats out of my wine." β€”Kymmmmm!

    Price: $13.95 (available in sizes 12-30oz and in 10 colors)

    16. A 12-pack of canned cold brew coffee you'll want to ask, "Where have you ~bean~ all my life?"


    Promising review: "This is the only cold brew I like, in a can or bottle! My only issue with it is limiting myself to one a day." β€”Just Rose

    Price: $21.85

    17. A bottle of milk and honey cuticle oil to hydrate and heal your nails, so you can get your hands out of your pockets and into your Instagram feed.


    Promising review: "I absolutely love this cuticle oil. It's much better priced than many other I have used and works just as well!" β€”Katelyn

    Price: $7.89

    18. And a melodica, an undeniable instrument of seduction that may as well come with a wedding ring and an extra set of keys to your apartment.


    Promising review: "This is the instrument I never knew I needed." β€”Jessie

    Price: $24.99
