    Get it from Target for $7.99 (originally $8.99).

    Promising review: "This dog toy is so cute. We have an almost 10-month-old Australian Shepherd. He loves chewing and playing with toys, so this toy was perfect for him. It has different features to it, so that in itself keeps him entertained for a long time. The middle crinkles and there are three squeakers in it. There is a bungee in the middle and it makes the toy super stretchy. The material is soft, so your pup or doggie won't hurt his or her mouth. Our dog really loves this toy. He will throw it in the air and play fetch. He is entertained for such a long time, and I don't have to worry about it making him sick or hurting his mouth or teeth. So far it seems really durable and should last for a while." —Keisha N.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.

    Promising review: "This thing is the bomb. Does exactly what it advertises; makes a thick whipped cream/foam out of washes, making it economical as well as fun. It can soften harsh washes to make the concoction gentler on skin. It's also great for mixing washes if you have two or more you'd like to combine for different effects. And of course, a little goes a long, long way with this puppy. For the price, it's a steal. Definitely give it a try if you're not sure. It's a really cool device." —Knock Knock Me

    Get it from American Eagle for $19.98 (originally $49.95; sizes S–L).

    Promising review: "This swimsuit fits PERFECTLY. I was nervous it was going to be cheeky or short in the torso, since I usually don't love the fit of one piece suits for those reasons. However this suit offers coverage (boobs and butt), but still is sexy and trendy. Looking forward to summer!" —Jess

    26. A set of Star Wars Lip Smackers, because dry lips are the path to the Dark Side.

    The flavors include Jedi Master Mint, Darth Chocolate, R2D-licious Blueberry, and Ice Cream Clone. And if anyone tries to steal these from you, go with a casual "These are not the lip balms you are looking for."

    Get the pack of four from Amazon for $17.99.

    Promising review: "These are so amazing! They need to give a raise to the person who created these Star Wars lip balm. The lip balm is tasty and works well. The cases are solid, and the lip balm screws in from underneath so once you're done with the lip balm, you can display the cases. I bought all of them and carry them in different bags. They are the best!" —Gigi

    27. A perfectly pink Powerpuff tee for an outfit composed of sugar, spice, and everything nice.

    Get it from Forever 21 for $19.90 (available in sizes 0X–3X).

    28. A six-pack of non-sticky rainbow slime filled with glitter and pearl beads, because regular slime just won't do it anymore.

    Get the pack of six from Amazon for $17.99.

    Promising review: "So much fun! My kids and I love this slime! It comes in an egg and different colors. I really like that it's just enough for little hands and big hands alike. It stays together really well and doesn't stick to your fingers/ hands like some others. Also it smells good so no funky smells from handling it. The beads stay in the slime which is another plus!" —Amber

    29. A Lucille Bluth pin you can point to when someone asks a question you don't understand, and won't respond to.

    Get it from Goellnerd on Etsy for $10 (insert "It's one banana, Michael. What could it cost, ten dollars?" joke here).

    30. A silicone trivet to keep your counters beary safe from scorching.

    You can take something right out of the oven and put it on the trivet — no Goldilocks-style "This porridge is too hot!" here!

    Get it from Amazon for $15.20.

    Promising review: "Bought this as a gift for my mother and she loved it! The attention to detail is impressive for a novelty item (it even has little paw prints). As a trivet, it's effective and the bendable shape makes it easy to store." —KA

    31. A stovetop Taiyaki maker that'll help you whip up Instagrammable fish-shaped waffles in the comfort of your own home. Leaving the house is overrated, but these fin-tastic treats are not.

    Get it from Box Lunch for $19.92.

    33. A Van Gogh coloring book you can fill out while watching the "Vincent and the Doctor" episode of Doctor Who — just be careful not to cry onto the book when you're watching, you don't want your artwork to smudge.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.88.

    Haven't watched the episode? What are you even doing. Stream it on Amazon Prime for freeeeee.

    Promising review: "Gorgeous coloring book with thick paper. I love the strokes that are there to paint. This is very well done. I also like that is is thick and has a piece of chip board to hold it flat and is a nice surface to color on." —Craig Wales
