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:

1. An ~out of this world~ backpack that may actually make a kid excited about going back to school.

Promising review: "My daughter wanted a backpack that was different from her friends and this is it! The colors are bright, the pattern is beautiful, and it's the perfect size to fit into a locker. The front pocket has plenty of room for her phone and pencils and the main compartment fits her textbooks perfectly." —Jamie Satterwaite

Price: $24.99

2. A grooming mitt that'll massage your pet *and* remove all the loose hair they're shedding.

Promising review: "This grooming mitt works great for my cat. Since she's losing her winter coat, she's shedding EVERYWHERE and don't even get me started on the hair balls. This mitt was able to get much more of her fur out than the brush we were using." —J&SSchmidt

Price: $8.93

3. A book about a young scientist that's written and illustrated by the creators of Iggy Peck, Architect and Rosie Revere, Engineer.

Now available for preorder.

Price: $11.21

4. A teeny-tiny elephant necklace that comes in gold, rose gold, and silver.

Promising review: "I wear this all the time. I got it in rose gold and I get so many compliments on it." —Holly Adkins

Price: $11.25

5. A copy of Splash to watch in anticipation of the possible remake.

Promising review: "Who doesn't like a movie about mermaids? Who doesn't love Tom Hanks? This movie has both!" —SonoMom

Price: $5.99

6. A rechargeable LED light you can clip to your bike's handlebars.

Promising review: "This bike light is REALLY strong. I love it because I feel really safe when I ride my bike with it. Also, if you don't want it *that* bright, you can always turn the brightness down as there are four settings." —Sfmama

Price: $20.90

7. A strap that comes with a guide to teach you how to use it for stretching.

Promising review: "I bought the Stretch Out Strap so I could use it at home to supplement my physical therapy sessions. It's the same one I used at PT to assist with stretching and strength-building exercises. PT ended, and having the strap has allowed me to continue the exercises at home on my own. It's very sturdy, virtually indestructible. " —Constant Reader

Price: $15.95

8. A spray that'll make your feet and shoes smell so much better.

Promising review: "I have been embarrassed on a number of occasions when visiting friends and family who ask you to remove your shoes at the door. It didn't matter what I put on my feet, how dry they were before putting socks/tights on, they smelled atrocious! I tried foot creams, soaks, sprays, you name it and nothing ever took the smell away. Until now! I use this spray daily and use it to freshen up the shoes on my shoe tree. It leaves my feet feeling tingly and refreshed and keeps my feet from smelling even after a long day." —Tina

Price: $15.95

9. Delicious snack packs of Nutella to bring on the go.

Promising review: "My kids absolutely love these. They are a fancy dessert in their eyes." —KaylaJean

Price: $3.31

10. An inflatable pool for babies that looks like a toadstool.

Promising review: "I bought it for my granddaughter and she loved it so much that my daughter decided to buy one too. It holds up perfectly, the material is nice, the bottom has some air that makes it very comfortable for babies, and the toys that come with it for are nice for chewing and playing. You can use it without water too. We added balls and it was a great play pen." —R. Ortiz

Price: $8.57

11. Lavender-scented dog waste bags that are made with recycled materials.

Promising review: "These poop bags are without a doubt my favorite. I received them as a gift one time and have been a die hard fan ever since. You wouldn't think it matters when you're just bagging dog poop, but it does. They are lightly scented lavender, almost a powdery fresh scent. It helps mask the smell of dog poop which is nice when you're stuck carrying a bag around looking for a trash can." —Kymberli

Price: $11.99

12. Globe-shaped string lights that would be perfect for decorating a dorm room.

Promising review: "The lights have many different settings (for those that want a light show), but for me the plain lights do the trick. I have them woven around my headboard and they look excellent." —Amazon Customer

Price: $19.99

13. A beautiful floral academic planner (it runs from August 2016 to July 2017).

Promising review: "There's plenty of space on each day of the week to write down all of my family's appointments, classes, and work schedules. Plus, I love the little pocket in the back for holding onto loose papers and receipts! It's small enough that I can carry it around with me everywhere that I go." —Cassie

Price: $14.95

14. A glass monitor riser that'll add some extra space to your desk.

Promising review: "I wanted something stylish and attractive for my iMac to sit on in my new office, and this was it. It has really helped me with long days at the computer." —jag512

Price: $29.99

15. Basting brushes you can use for both grilling *and* baking.

Promising review: "I will never go back to using wooden basting brushes with boar like bristles ever again and it is all because of these fantastic brushes. So far I have used them with BBQ sauce, salad dressing, olive oil, butter, and frosting with no issues at all. What I love most about these brushes is that they are easy to clean. I hand wash mine with a little Dawn and some warm water. I then proceed to let them air dry." —Smileymelon

Price: $7.99

16. A pair of sterling silver starfish stud earrings.

Promising review: "I have somewhat small earlobes, so wearing larger stud earrings doesn't really work for me. But these were perfect, tiny and cute. Would be great for someone with small earlobes like me, or younger kids." —Erin M.

Price: $14.95

17. A comfy, stretchy tunic dress that comes in over 15 colors and patterns.

Promising review: "Definitely great for summer. It flows well and doesn't cling to your body." —Jaimie

Price: $7.99+
