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

1. A watch that'll help you keep track of the time while you're playing Pokémon Go.

Promising review: "It is really nice looking and had a surprise in that I hadn't realized when ordering that it has flashing lights if you press a button. My son is going to love this." —Amazon Customer

Price: $9.99

2. And a set that includes 144 Pokémon figurines. ONE HUNDRED AND FORTY FOUR!

Promising review: "If you're looking for cheap, COOL Pokémon toys instead of buying those expensive Tomy figures, these are the toys for you. I just received mine yesterday and was left speechless and had no other words to say but 'awesome.' To my surprise, the toys were bigger than I expected and they don't break because they are like 'metal plastic,' to be as precise as I can be." —Julio Yepez

Price: $16.99

4. Stephen King's It on DVD (get a copy and watch it as a reminder that no one will ever be able to top Tim Curry's portrayal of Pennywise).

amzn.to

Sorry, Bill Skarsgård.

Promising review: "Tim Curry was, I think, born to play Pennywise the Clown. Sadistic, waddling freak with his doughy, grinning white face, red wet lips stretched as wide as his ears." —Holly Apollyon

Price: $3.99

5. Swim thru rings for kids who spend the summer smelling like chlorine.

amzn.to

Promising review: "My children (6 and 12) and their friends love the underwater rings. They keep them busy for hours. They love to compete with each other." —jsands

Price: $19.58

6. A foam roller with removable end caps (so you can use it for storage).

amzn.to

Promising review: "The foam is soft yet sturdy and the texture hits in just the right places. One of my concerns when I saw that it had removable end caps, was that they would easily pop off or not be easy to get off. This is not the case. They are simple screw on caps from both ends. The diameter makes it easy to place a variety of workout gear or personal belongings in it. For me, I store resistance bands and other simple workout equipment that I would use prior to ending my workout with this roller." —Michael

Price: $23.95

7. A fun kit to help kids (or adults!) make a growing, glowing terrarium.

amzn.to

Promising review: "Love this! This product is a great alternative to a traditional nightlight. It helps kids understand nature in an up close and personal way. A garden for anyone, anywhere! I'm going to purchase more of them for my pre-K classroom." —Kristen L

Price: $10.99

8. Cans of Ecto Cooler to sneak into the theater to drink when you go see Ghostbusters.

Promising review: "The flavor is exactly as I remember it, but rather than chugging it as I did when I was young, I found myself savoring it like a fine wine. The tangerine stands out the most, the orange is in there, but it has a hint of grapefruit in the aftertaste. Make sure you shake the can gently before you open it." —Ben

Price: $6.46

9. A big pack of colorful tissue paper for all your crafting and gift wrapping needs.

amzn.to

Promising review: "A great value for craft tissue paper! As many colors as a rainbow, with more pinks and greens than are usually included in such multi-color sets — great for both birthday bag stuffing (the pinks) and nature-oriented crafts (the greens). The colors are vivid and, while not lightfast, hold up pretty well to sun exposure. The silver and gold sheets are a little heavier than the others and less translucent, making them useful for découpage." —The Smiths

Price: $10.19

10. A citrusy exfoliating scrub from St. Ives.

amzn.to

Promising review: "It is a million times better than the more common St. Ives Apricot scrub. This scrub has a delicious grapefruit scent, and feels like an ultra fine sugar/salt scrub specifically designed for your face. Where the St. Ives Apricot scrub is made of a thick, somewhat heavy feeling base liquid that always seems to take forever to rinse off of my skin, this Even & Bright scrub has a lighter base liquid mixed in with the sugar/salt exfoliant, which rinses clean pretty quickly." —HelloReese

Price: $3.60

11. Big ol' sticky notes you can use as page dividers.

amzn.to

Promising review: "I love these! I'm a college student who takes notes a lot, and these are perfect for using with rented textbooks (that you can't write in). The tabs are nice and there's just enough space on each paper to put down important information. Nice thick paper, it's sticky from one edge to about halfway to the other edge, so it stays on pretty well." —maria17

Price: $5.64

12. Mild-flavored, naturally-refined avocado oil that's great for frying, grilling, and searing.

amzn.to

Promising review: "I am always hesitant about using extra virgin olive oil with heat. It is usually a waste because it ruins the expensive flavor, or worse, it burns and smokes with anything but a medium low heat. This PURE oil is luscious fatty, with a taste different from olive oil, less peppery, but just as silky. But it does not go all Chicago Fire when I want to go from marinade straight to a hot skillet. Flexible, tasty and economical." —Aceto

Price: $11.09

13. A Remodeez charcoal deodorizer to toss into your stinky gym bag.

Promising review: "My 11 year old son plays AAU basketball. Some days he is in his basketball shoes almost all day, playing anywhere between 3 and 6 tournaments... this results in very, very, very smelly feet and shoes. We tried sprays, creams, powders... you name it. Most things just mask the odor and do not get rid of it completely. He has an expensive shoe habit and I cannot afford to keep buying new basketball shoes due to odor. These did the trick for us. We rotate between two pairs of sneakers: while one pair are on his feet, the other pair are sitting in a box with Remodeez in them. By the time he's ready to put that pair back on, the Remodeez have done their job and they have no odor." — Lindsey2381

Price: $9.99

14. A tambourine with 20 jingles.

amzn.to

Did you know that the little metal things are called jingles? I bet you didn't. Don't lie.

Promising review: "It really is an excellent tambourine. Very professional and it surprised me (as I've used ones that were much more expensive that weren't this nice). I have a home studio and I'd like to use it, but my 3 year old daughter knows it's hers, so every time I try, she claims rightful ownership. I suppose I'll have to order another." —John B.

Price: $10.99

15. The original Broadway cast recording of Waitress (to listen to while you bake a pie).

amzn.to

Promising review: "Sara Bareilles' wonderful score for Waitress is by turns delightful pop, country-fresh, hilarious, and always character-driven, making it funny and moving all at once. An exceptional first Broadway score, the recording is top-notch, with gorgeous production values. Even if you haven't seen the show (and you should!), you will bop along with joy to this score!" —R. Penola

Price: $11.49

17. Facial cleansing towelettes to use when you're feeling too lazy to *actually* wash your face at the end of a long day.

amzn.to

Promising review: "Can't live without this product! Well, I suppose I could, but I would really rather not! I have skin that's sensitive to many products, but experience no discomfort using these wipes. I don't wear a ton of makeup, but even on the days that I go a little heavier, they removes every trace of it." —KH

Price: $4.99

18. A rattle toy that's sure to make babies fall in love with hedgehogs.

As they should.

Promising review: "This has consistently been one of my daughter's most favorite toys. She's 8 months old now, but she's been interested in it since she was about 3 months old. Initially, I clipped this little hedgehog onto my baby bouncer using the Bright Starts Lots of Links Accessory Toy and my daughter would play with it while it hung down and she was in the bouncer. Now that she's older, she can hold it in her hands and play with it that way. I think it's easy for a baby to hold because it's soft and flexible on the bottom (with all the holes). The top has interesting textures and seems to be fun to chew on. My daughter also likes the two beads on the front that slide back and forth." —Glow81

Price: $7.99

19. And a vinyl repair kit for when your pool float pops a leak.

amzn.to

Promising review: "This stuff is great. My kids put a hole in their 'Jump-o-Lene' bounce house in an area that was literally impossible to put a patch over. I used a few coats of this and let it dry overnight just to be safe... they've been bouncing in it for a week now and it's holding up good as new! They are NOT gentle, either!" — Rebekah

Price: $6.11
