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. A pop-up book for future paleontologists.

Promising review: "This pop-up book is absolutely stunning! I bought it for my 6-year-old nephew and he absolutely flipped over it. Not only are there huge intricately designed pop-ups on each page, there are also 3 to 4 separate pop-ups under informative flaps on each page as well. This book is the best I have ever seen. I almost kept it for myself!" —Jennifer M.

Price: $14.04

2. Putty for people who will *never* stop thinking fart sounds are funny.

Promising review: "Flarp is the best. Accept no imitations." —Pen Name

Price: $9.93 (for a pack of three)

3. A "love journal" for your bestie.

Promising review: "My best friend loved it! She read it over and over again and it made her cry." —A. Taylor

Price: $8.90

4. A bath toy set featuring adorable creatures, spinner balls, and strainer cups.

Promising review: "These toys deserve 5 stars because there is no way they can get moldy. That happened to our other bath toys. And these look cute and fun for my baby." —W.

Price: $6.01

5. A white marker pen with an extra fine point that's perfect for writing on holiday cards, envelopes, gift tags, and more.

Promising review: "I am a long time user of Sharpie Poster Paints — and I continue to love and adore them as much as I did the very first time I picked one up." —Katherine B.

Price: $3.19

6. Plush slippers for Frenchie (or Boston terrier) fans.

Promising reviews: "Cute slippers! Fit true to size." —emawalton

Price: $24.99

7. The La La Land soundtrack (so you can sing along with Emma and Ryan and practice your tap-dance moves).

Promising review: "I had seen this at a pre-screening and I was dazzled by the music in it. It reminded me of a traditional musical back in the 1940s, but with modern lyrics. Even a week later I was humming the main theme." —Lucien Desar

Price: $9.49

8. An ionic ceramic hair dryer to dry hair evenly (and with less resulting static).

Promising review: "I have been a hairstylist for 14 years and have always used Solano dryers, but this hair dryer is way better, in my opinion. It is lighter, dries hair faster, makes hair look super shiny, and is an excellent price." —Jimmy

Price: $49.95

9. A book filled with so many delicious cookie recipes you won't even know where to start.

Promising review: "I love this book!!! It takes baking cookies to a whole new level. After I made the traditional jammer cookie, my 14-year-old claimed that we could all agree that the book was $20 well spent. She also said that the Snowy Topped Brownie Drops were 'perfection.' The book is beautiful and full of great tips. Who knew that rolling out dough between two sheets of parchment would be so easy and use so much less flour. I also appreciate that both volume and weight measurements are given, since I much prefer to bake by weight. I am excited to try more recipes." —Kindle Customer

Price: $20.34

10. A ~deluxe~ jungle-themed activity seat that'll captivate curious kids.

Promising review: "Got this for my nephew and I can't get him out of it: all he wants to do is play in it!" —Thomas

Price: $36.36

11. An inexpensive six-piece bamboo cooking utensils set (including a turner spatula, a rounded fork, a single-hole mixing spoon, a slotted spatula, a slotted spoon, a bamboo spoon).

Promising review: "Best deal I've found in a long time. I love this set of cooking utensils. I have mostly nonstick pans and these bamboo utensils get the job done without scratching the bottoms.My family never quite got the importance of that, so now I just have this lovely bamboo set out and they get it!!! I really like that I can put them in the dishwasher, and unlike many wooden utensils, they don't split. I use them for everything now: from tossing up a dish in the wok to tossing my salads. I also like the feel of the handles, they are nice and thick and feel sturdy." —Ronnie L.

Price: $6.99

12. A set of stud earrings for anyone who communicates predominantly in emojis.

Promising review: "I just received these absolutely amazing earrings! These darlings are right on target for my granddaughter who loves emojis! These are NOT fashion, light-weight pieces: They have weight to them and seem to be very sturdy. They even came in a wonderful velvet gift bag. I can't wait to see her face when she gets these!!!!" —Amazon Customer

Price: $9.99

13. A chipmunk-filled log for your loves-to-chew dog.

Promising review: "My friend suggested I find a puzzle toy for my very smart lab puppy. I read the reviews on this product and thought for the price I would give it a try: honestly, I was not expecting the enthusiastic response from Elmo. He adores this toy. Carries the log around. Pulls out the squirrels and proudly plops each one in my hand, and waits for me to put them back in the log. It really helps out during those times he needs some mental work and light physical activity to occupy him that does not necessarily require my full attention." —Kathy M. Edwards

Price: $17.38

14. Packs of field notes to use as stocking stuffers.

Promising review: "Love these almost more than my Moleskine. Very portable. I cover mine with stickers." —Greg

Price: $9.95 (for a set of three)

15. A year-long magazine subscription for anyone who prefers creatures with scales to creatures with fur.

Promising review: "We just adopted a bearded dragon, and our son is reptile obsessed. This magazine is very exciting for him to read, cover to cover, ads and all. I do not know what is so fascinating about it, but reptiles are not my thing. I'm thrilled that this magazine speaks to his passions month after month with exciting new topics like 'Komodo dragons!'" —K. Kaufman

Price: $10

16. Knit infinity scarves that come in so many different colors, you'll be able to find one for every outfit you own.

Promising review: "Super soft, just as expected. Long enough to wrap around my neck twice and still look slouchy. Love it!" —Amazon Customer

Price: $14.99

17. An all-in-one makeup set that comes in a cool, shell-shaped fold-out container.

Promising review: "I bought this product because it is perfect for my niece (who is 11). It's not that she wears makeup, but it's a fun playtime kit for a little girl." —Queen Christina II

Price: $15.86

18. A ventilating laptop stand with adjustable angles and pillows that'll conform to your legs.

Promising review: "I was pleasantly surprised when I received this lap desk. I honestly was not expecting much for $20. It is very sturdy, even when it's propped up on the different levels. The cushions on the bottom are a good size, cushy like a bean bag, and very comfortable on my lap. I really like that it adjusts to eight different angles, as I have found that useful depending on where I am sitting or laying with it." —Happy in the OC

Price: $14.99

19. Two-piece cotton pajama sets that come in a variety of different Christmas-themed prints.

Promising review: "The Santa pajamas were perfect for our annual gift of Christmas pajamas for our granddaughters. They fit as expected and are made of a soft cotton." —Dennis M. Flaherty

Price: $25.99

20. A petite vegan leather backpack that's surprisingly spacious.

Promising review: "I used this for a week in London and it was absolutely perfect! I think it is very well made. The zippers are heavy duty. The zipper pulls are large and easy to grab. I used it all over England. On and off the plane. On and off the tube and train. Worked like a charm!! I even brought it into Wembley Arena and they did not have a problem with it. I was even able to fit my DSLR camera in there, my phone, phone backup charger, wallet, and glasses. No problem!! Excellent bag!!"—Pip

Price: $29.99

21. A Blu-ray set of the extended edition of the Lord of the Rings trilogy with oh so many special features.

Promising review: "Set aside a few days to watch all of the movies and special features: there must be about 20 hours worth of special features. Crazy details. Gold standard in Blu-ray audio and video transfer. Absolutely fantastic." —Suresh Kumar

Price: $54.99

22. And a boxed set of every Harry Potter movie (for people who are more into Hogwarts than the Shire).

Promising review: "Oh my gosh what a wonderful set! Hours and hours of special features and interviews. And the quality of video is incredible! Arrived quickly and safely." —Kathleen M. Ray

Price: $64.99
