    Amazon has a list of products called β€œMovers and Shakers,” which is pretty much just fancy talk for things that are currently β€œtrending.”

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

    1. These memory foam cashmere slippers you'll never want to leave your feet.

    Promising review: "These are better quality than I expected. They're super comfortable and have a very soft, cushioned insole. They run a little big, but because they don't come in half sizes, I'm keeping them. They're that comfortable." β€”Kelley Henry

    Price: $17 (available in four colors and sizes 5–12).

    2. A set of packing cubes to make prepping for your next trip more efficient.

    Promising review: "I was able to pack all my 3-year-old son's clothes in the small cube. I used the large cubes to pack all the adults' clothes. Everything fit neatly into a small suitcase. I was blown away by how smoothly it made packing, and it kept us organized during vacation." β€”Tiffani Herzog

    Price: $14 (available in six colors).

    3. A dashboard camera that'll give you peace of mind when you're in an accident or subject to a hit-and-run.

    Promising review: "This is the dashcam you've been waiting for. Just bought mine last night and tried it out today. The Sony Exmor sensor provides ultra-fine detail, crystal-clear night vision, and solid image stabilization. The device is compact and feels very solid. The mobile app is excellent and sharing videos from my phone is a plus." β€”Max

    Price: $99

    4. A chainmail scrubber for making your cast-iron pans sparkle without ruining their seasoned surface., / Via

    Promising review: "This is the easiest method of scrubbing a cast-iron that I've yet found. It works well on stuck-on food on my steel pots, too. Wouldn't have thought it was going to be good. It pretty much glides over a well-seasoned finish without damaging it, and removes debris from the surface easily." β€”Amazon Customer

    Price: $14

    5. This sprouting mushroom night light that slowly changes color over time.

    Promising review: "I LOVE this nightlight. It's in my bathroom and a lovely addition. It turns off the second the lights go on, which is nice that I don't have to worry about accidentally leaving it on. Super cute and the little itty-bitty lighting element does a good job lighting. Just enough so I don't have to turn the main lights on in the middle of the night." β€”1Thand

    Price: $2

    6. A kid-friendly alarm clock β€” it glows when it's ok to get out of bed.

    Promising review: "My 3-year-old started coming into my room at 5:30 a.m. I got this clock in desperation for a few more moments of sleep. The day it came we 'practiced' a few times β€” I set the timer for just a few minutes ahead and had him wait in his room until it turned green to come out. He thought it was great fun. In the morning he came to my room at 5:30 a.m., I walked him back to his room, showed him the clock, and reminded him to stay put until it turns green. He stayed. Every morning since β€” it's been two weeks β€” he's stayed put and then ran excitedly down the hall to show me his green clock! Success!" β€”S. Crotts

    Price: $23

    7. This magnetic screen door to make it easy for you and your pets to go in and out of the house.

    Kathy Habel / Amazon / Via, Ricky & Shirlene / Amazon / Via

    Promising review: "This screen door is great. We have three dogs and a cat that use it. They love the freedom in the summer to come and go as they wish. We tried another door but it wasn't half as good as this door. More magnets down the center and Velcro all along the top and sides make it super secure. I ordered two, one for each slider door. They are fantastic!" β€”Roxanne Keyzer

    Price: $30

    8. These affordable Bluetooth earbuds that'll let you cut the cord without spending an arm and a leg.

    Promising review: "I bought these SoundPEATS to give to my wife so she could listen to Pandora, and answer the phone, all while running without having a cord in the way. I have to say that I didn't expect much, but the price tempted me to buy and now I'm so happy that I did. These work great! They sound good, are easy to set up with your phone, and I like the voice better than the one used for my LG Tones." β€”Daultim

    Price: $30 (available in black and blue).

    9. This Argan oil hair mask for keeping your hair feeling shiny and luxurious.

    Promising review: "I came across this product, along with the shampoo on Amazon and figured, like everything else, I'd give it a try. It seriously exceeded my expectations. I have to shampoo and condition daily because if I don't, my hair looks greasy. The first time I used this set, I honestly felt like I could go two days without shampooing, it was that good. It also smells amazing and leaves my hair feeling very healthy. I don't think I'll buy anything else from now on." β€”Nicole C.

    Price: $13

    10. A paper towel dispenser that lets you tear off one sheet at a time.

    Promising review: "We buy the giant roll of Bounty Select-A-Size paper towels and they fit on this with no problem. The arm has thin metal rods that hold the roll in place so when you pull it, it doesn't pull off like 50 towels. It's really easy to just get one sheet off, even one-handed. I like that the end that you slide the towel over has a nice, finished design." β€”Valerie J

    Price: $12 (comes in three finishes).

    11. This party game you'll definitely blush a few times while playing.

    Promising review: "I love this game! It is exactly what I was hoping for. Compact and easy to carry to parties. There are SO MANY cards that this game could last for years and you would never get bored. Can't wait to take this on an upcoming vacation!" β€” AN2AG

    Price: $18

    12. A competitive outdoor game β€” it's like if volleyball and foursquare had a baby.

    Promising review: "After playing this game on a family reunion trip at the beach, I talked about how fun it was nonstop to my husband. So as soon as we planned our next friends trip to the beach, I knew I was going to have to make this purchase. It didn't disappoint. It is just as fun as I remembered." β€”TIffany

    Price: $60

    13. This tough Bluetooth speaker that can stand up to all the water and dust you can throw at it.

    Promising review: "I grabbed one for our 8-year-old daughter who wanted a lil' waterproof speaker for the shower so she could listen to music on her iPod Touch. I bought it thinking it'd be a novelty kind of speaker, but it's awesome! Bass is good, volume is good, and it doesn't sound tinny at all β€” none of that 'over-modulated' kind of shrill. I just grabbed one for myself because this baby is as impressive as it is portable. She can leave her iPod outside the bathroom, away from the steam, and it works perfectly. Upstairs vs. downstairs it still works great...impressive range!" β€”G. Z.

    Price: $19

    14. A nifty pair of bendy glasses able to fold up into a small keychain-sized case.

    Promising review: "I never have to worry about where my glasses are OR even if I have them with me! The first time I used them was out to dinner with family and friends. I took out my keychain, popped up the glasses, and slid them on my nose. Everyone went wild and they just had to try them on!" β€”Amazon Customer

    Price: $25 (available in six colors and four different strengths).

    15. This tiny noise machine to help you sleep by drowning out the sounds of a noisy neighborhood.

    Promising review: "I can't sleep without a fan. Period. I have tinnitus and the slightest noise wakes me. I plugged this little thing in and couldn't believe it! It's better than any fan I've ever owned. It's loud enough and has several settings. It doesn't look or feel cheap either." β€”catherine

    Price: $35 (available in black and white).

    16. These hexagon-inspired condoms any bee would give a nod of approval to.

    Promising review: "Impressive...LELO may claim a lot, but it lives up to its expectations. The grip and feel is pretty great. The price may be steep but let's be real, I'm willing to pay a little extra to get a little more β€” especially when it comes to condoms and sex. Not an area to skimp." β€”Anonomous Customer

    Price: $20+ (available in 3-, 6-, and 36-count).

    17. This pack of ice pop pouches for making some adult frozen cocktails.

    Promising review: "I purchased these Zipzicle pouches to create individual snack packs for lunches, backpacking/hiking, snacks, and road trips. The zipper pouches are easy to fill and can be reused (as long as you remind the family to bring them home). They're durable, so they hold up well to being tossed in a backpack or lunch box. I haven't had any issues with punctures." β€”High Desert Homestead

    Price: $7 (for a pack of 36).
