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 on the list this week:

1. A shiny sequin fanny pack that'll add the right amount of sparkle to all of your dope summer fashions while being able to hold your valuables.

The strap adjusts to fit waist sizes up to 41 inches!

Promising review: "This fanny pack was awesome to have on my trip to Disney! There are two zippered pockets in the large sized bag. I used the small front pocket for my ID, credit card, show tickets, cash, coins and receipts. I used the large pocket for my phone, mine and my husband’s sunglasses, and park maps. It held up surprisingly well and didn’t lose many sequins using it seven days in the parks with a toddler messing with it too. I even received some compliments on it! Cute waist packs are coming back in style because I saw other young people wearing them too, lol." —CK

Price: $10.99 (available in 11 colors)


2. A handy grill brush so you can actually keep your charcoal grill clean after cooking the most amazing burgers and steaks for all your guests.

The brush is safe for porcelain, cast iron, and stainless steel.

Promising review: "I love our new grill brush! The last one we had seen the end of its life when it was leaving bristles on the grill. I hardly need to apply any pressure with this brush for just a basic clean, and the scraper comes in handy for the times when the grill needs a bit more cleaning." —Betty P.

Price: $14.97

3. A pair of jumbo toy hammocks with the ability to expand up to five feet, because your kids have so many damn stuffed animals that you haven't seen the actual floor in days. Something's gotta give!

The hammock can hang 30 or more stuffed animals!

Promising review: "My kids have more stuffed animals than they know what to do with, and short of throwing them all away while they're in school and racking up their future therapy bills, I needed a way to store them so that these stuffed animals are present but not cluttering up their rooms. These nets are pretty huge and can hold a large number of toys. They were reasonably easy to install in the corners of their bedrooms, and when we're ready to take them down (when they go to college?) the holes won't be excessively large." —Heather

Price: $12.99 (for a set of two).

4. A clear backpack so you'll never have to dig through mountains of stuff just to find your keys.

Promising review: "Although it wasn’t required at the Cubs game we recently attended, it came in handy going through security. The guard complimented my bag and looked all around it from the outside without having to dig through it. Nice!" —Amazon Customer

Price: $13.99+ (available in eight colors).

5. A tube of Burt's Bees Aloe and Coconut Oil After Sun Soother for calming and moisturizing your sunburnt skin. Why didn't you wear sunscreen, again?

Promising review: "This stuff is really great. It really helps relieve chapped or burnt skin in a soothing (not numbing) way. It's very gentle, and works well on sensitive skin. Applying this ASAP after getting sun burned helps reduce effects drastically." —SamThePoltergeist

Price: $4.59


6. An adorable electric shaver with 18K gold–plated heads for easily removing hair wherever you may want.

It has a built-in LED light to make it easier to see what you're shaving, especially in ~private~ areas you'd really hate to nick.

Promising review: "I have used many different types of shavers in the past, but all fell short of giving me a close shave. This shaver is absolutely the BEST shaver I have ever seen! The rotating heads make the job of shaving your legs easier, faster, and without having to go over the same spot two to three times! The shaver is lightweight and fits great in your hand; it isn't heavy." —SMartin

Price: $59.99

7. A really cool dinosaur skirt, because you'd love to go back to the prehistoric period and work hand-in-hand with a Brontosaurus, like the Flintstones.,

Promising review: "I get so many compliments on this skirt. It fits great. I was able to buy a smaller size than I wear because the waistband provides a lot of stretch!" —Jennifer S.

Price: $7.79+ (available in sizes S–XXL and 11 colors).

8. A pair of unicorn swim shoes so your tiny tot will be able to wade in the water without scratching their little toes. It's almost like magic!

The shoes have a rubber sole and are quick drying so the bottom of their feet won't look like prunes once they get home.

Promising review: "Our seven-year-old boy totally loved these while on vacation in Hawaii. He also wore them before the vacation and has been wearing them after as well. He has definitely gotten a lot of use out of them — he used them to swim in the pool the whole week, on a snorkeling tour, at school, and around town now. He gets lots of compliments on the dinosaur design. They are awesome." —Laura

Price: $7.99+ (available in sizes 3–13 and 34 patterns).

9. A USB audio adapter that'll plug in up to two headphone jacks so you and bae can both watch your current Netflix series together without having to rewind because you didn't hear some dialouge.

It's also compatible with microphones, so you can properly record your demos and release the hottest mixtape of 2018.

Promising review: "This works well. The plug-and-play function is really useful when you need to hook up a microphone but have no mic port. No noticeable delay in sound transmission or hearing." —Janine Plourde

Price: $7.79


10. A bottle of Humane acne wash with benzoyl peroxide that'll keep your skin clear all summer long. Oily skin who?

Promising review: "I've tried so many face washes that didn't work. This one worked right away! I use it twice a day. In the morning and at night. Doesn't dry my face out or make it feel oily. Even though my acne wasn't that bad it cleared up what I had. I will NOT use anything else." —heather Grossman

Price: $21.95

11. A cocktail muddler set to make the most poppin' caipirinhas or mojitos at your next outdoor function. Mash them limes to perfection.

The muddler has a grooved nylon head to mash citrus fruits, herbs, and spices without leaving residue that wooden muddlers would! It also includes a cocktail recipe book to inspire you.

Promising review: "This was great for muddling cocktail ingredients. I have used it to make strawberry mojitos with fresh strawberries, crushed ice and mint leaves. It muddles the ingredients very easily with little effort. The online book provided contains your basic cocktails; I wish it provided more cocktail recipes." —MRios

Price: $8.95

12. A lightweight floral cardigan that'll look amazing when you layer it over a tank top, but won't actually make you sweat horribly when walking in the heat.

Promising review: "Really cute kimono. The blue color is so vibrant and pretty." —Julie H.

Price: $14.99+ (available in sizes S–3XL and 12 colors).

13. A pack of biodegradable wet wipes to thoroughly wipe down your body when you're out in the wilderness, because someone thought camping would actually be a great idea in 100-degree weather.

They're unscented, include vitamin E and aloe, and are totally hypoallergenic! And if you leave the wipes in the dirt by accident they'll actually break down.

Promising review: "I’m a female in the military and these are a great alternative to baby wipes. They make you feel cleaner when you can’t shower as often as you want. I like that they come in different sizes so one from the larger pack can do the job of about ten baby wipes." —labrisha

Price: $8.97


14. A pair of compression socks with arch support to keep your feet from getting horrible cramps while you're training for that marathon!

It also gives your ankles a bit of support outside of physical activity, score!

Promising review: "Excellent product. I have a nagging achilles tendon pull that's been bugging me for six months. These help support my ankle and relieve the pain. I wear them under my regular socks at work, and also at my daily CrossFit workout. These really help." —Paul C. Barnhill

Price: $16.99 (available in sizes S–XXL and four colors).

15. A copy of An American Marriage (it's featured in Oprah's Book Club!!), which explores the relationship between newlyweds Celestial and Roy, and how they deal with him being arrested and sent to prison for a crime he didn't commit.

All of that sounds juicy, y'all.

Promising review: "Masterfully written. Though I’ve heard about the author and her previous work, it’s my first read. I’m amazed. I’m astonished. I’m proud. The depth of the novel. The fierceness of each character. Their development and real-life characteristics still haunt my memory. At first, I couldn’t put my hand on it. I had to really think about what I felt throughout the read and at its end. Then it dawned on me; I was unable to simply disconnect. Easily drawn into each character. I felt a kinship. I understood. I was mad, confused and sad. From the moment Roy and Celestial got married, I anticipated a roller coaster ride. I did not expect what happened next. Jail?!" —Elle D. Dunn

Price: $16.17

16. A totally washable kid's makeup set so your offspring can express their creativity and groom themselves to become the next big YouTube MUA and take a nap right after. Being an influencer is tiring.

The set includes four blushes, two glitter lip glosses, three eyeshadows, two lipsticks, two nail polishes, and a glitter cosmetic bag.

Promising review: "My two-year-old loves playing with this. It keeps her out of my makeup and happy while I get ready! Mostly she just opens and closes everything. It washes off easily if she does try it on. The bag it came with isn't the best but I just used another one we had." —Teach82

Price: $14.99

17. A blade brush with a wrap-around design and bristles to easily (and safely) scrub down all your heavy duty knives without actually nicking yourself and causing a horror scene in the middle of your kitchen.

Promising review: "I love this! Our knives are not supposed to go in the dishwasher and while we've never been cut hand-washing them, it always seems like we're about to! This makes washing off the knives very fast and significantly safer. The bristles are stiff enough to get the knives clean, but soft enough to not scratch the metal. Just drop a bit of soap into it, run the knife back and forth a few times, rinse it off, and you're done." —S. Levitt

Price: $7.19 (available in two colors).


18. A V-neck waffle knit blouse that'll probably become a staple in your summer wardrobe, since it's so versatile.

Promising review: "It is identical to the picture. Thick, soft, waffle material. Love." —Jared Hurd

Price: $16.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and nine colors).

19. A Tile key finder with a range of 200 feet so you can say "adios" to ever losing your keys (or any other valuables) again. Once you sync it with your phone, your keys will beep until you find them!

It's also waterproof and connects with Bluetooth!

Promising review: "Tiles are the best. I don’t know what we did before we had them. Oh yes, we spent far too long searching the house for keys and phones. The sport/style ones (dark grey or the white and gold) definitely are faster to locate and have a better range." —mis1999

Price: $24.99

20. And Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella, because Brandy honestly did that and you deserve to watch the magic of a multicultural cast over and over again.

Promising review: "I have always loved Cinderella since I was a little girl, but this version of it I liked the best. One thing is that nobody cared what race/color you were. Families were mixed with all different nationalities. The singing, of course, was superb. You are never too old for fairy tales. It leaves you with a smile on your face." —Melanie

Price: $4.99
