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 found on the list this week:


3. A set of fine-tipped pens to use when coloring *or* drawing.

Promising review: "Best pens I've used. I've had an art supply fetish for many years, through art school and a graphic design career. These are my favorite pens: high quality, well designed, and very useful." —Niteshade

Price: $17.80

5. A TARDIS bottle opener that makes the famous VWORP noise when it touches metal.

Promising review: "This bottle opener works like most. It sounds just like the Doctor Who TARDIS when it touches metal, even before it opens bottles. This is also a great collectors item, and should be worth more in the future." —Vicki Johnson

Price: $12.99


6. A book that may (*may*) help you feel a bit more like a grown-up.

Promising review: "As a 20-year-old, this book pretty much laid out the basics of becoming an adult and being on your own, and showed you how to deal with it, all with lighthearted humor." —Betsy

Price: $9.99 for kindle, $8.99 for paperpack

7. A pack of protein bars that don't taste like shit.

Promising review: "By far the best protein bar I have ever had. The size is perfect to eat on the run and isn't overwhelming as a pre- or post-gym snack. I'll even occasionally use them as a meal replacement along with a shake. Couldn't ask for anything better." —Colin

Price: $32.01

8. A pancake griddle that makes preparing breakfast basically foolproof.

Promising review: "I'm a lousy cook and I love pancakes. I've always had to go to a restaurant to get a decent pancake because I never figured out how to make them right. But when I got this griddle, I started turning out perfect pancakes every time!" —lighten_up_already2

Price: $13.19

9. A spray that'll keep suede boots salt-stain-free once winter arrives.

Promising review: "This is a good brand of protectant spray. It has worked beautifully and fully covered three tall boots and I still have some left. I'm buying more and there's no better endorsement than a repeat purchase." —B'Lyss

Price: $13.43


12. Edible eyeballs that'll make mealtime more fun for kids (as well as their parents).

Promising review: "I love peeling a banana and sticking two little eyes to the inside then handing it to my 2 year old. Cracks him up every time and it's the simplest way to get him to eat fruit." —AT

Price: $2.47

13. A BFA-free bottle that helps your baby latch on.

Promising review: "My 11-week-old had been refusing the bottle... and after buying 6 different types of them, this was the one she finally took! I'm not sure what it is about the Munchkin Latch, but my boob-loving baby gives it her approval!" —J Dodd

Price: $12.79


14. A pair of pink padded gloves that'll make you want to sign up for boxing lessons ASAP.

Promising review: "They are hot and pink and you will look stunning as a knockout in the gym. They fit my petite hands perfectly with no tape required. They are made for the heavyweight bag so they are not as big and bulky as the boxing ones. Excellent for the woman who is in control and likes to look good while doing it." —Donna Knows Best

Price: $16

16. A bat shelter that'll turn your home into the haunted house of your dreams.

Promising review: "My husband likes bats (I do not). I bought this for him so he could have more bat friends at our camp. It took a while, but they made it to their new home. We have more bats at camp now (which I still hate)." —Vanessa

Price: $29.24
