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. Cozy slipper socks that turn your feet into foxes.

Promising review: “I like to wear socks at home year-round and these are perfect. They’re like a step up from normal thick fuzzy socks; the most basic of slippers.” —Kristen

Price: $12.99

2. Michael Chabon’s new novel: Moonglow.

You can read an excerpt from it on BuzzFeed here.

Price: $14.99

3. An all-natural scratcher to keep your cat occupied for hours and hours (and hours).

Promising review: “The moment I introduced my two cats to this, they had a blast with it: climbing on it, hiding behind it, trying desperately to get that toy out if it. They stick their paws in it… and then their heads… and when that doesn’t work, they try on the other side, then go back again. It lasted nearly a year and it’s not only functional, but I found that it provides hours of entertainment for cats and human alike.” —Lori D.

Price: $5.24

4. A game that’s a real ~gas~.

Promising review: “We have had a blast with this. Even if you don’t play the game, the fart machine is still a lot of fun. Who doesn’t like a good toot?” —Avid Shopper

Price: $7.99

5. A handheld brush and blade to gently clean stains from a salt block.

Promising review: “This thing made cleaning my Himalayan salt block a LOT easier!! The bristles are rigid enough to clean the block without doing damage and the scraper is thick enough that it will bust right through the uneven areas, keeping your block flat.” —DFKing

Price: $5.74

6. A toy version of Poppy’s coronation pod from Trolls.

Promising review: “A great toy for imagination!” —Stephanie

Price: $15.39

7. A scoop for making consistently sized cookies (so they cook evenly when you bake them).

Promising review: “This cookie scoop from Oxo has improved my cookies markedly. You know how that last minute or two in the oven is critical—the difference between underdone, just right, and burnt-around-the-edges? Well, if your cookies aren’t the same size to start, you’re never going to hit that ‘just right’ sweet spot. The big ones are underdone when the little ones are just right, or if the big ones are perfect, the small ones are burnt. I used to scoop cookie dough with a spoon, but this little gem of a tool is much more precise and neater to use.” —Kathy Grace

Price: $13.95

8. An owl who reveals a clock when he flaps his wings.

Promising review: “This handsome little fellow resembles the steampunk owl from the original Clash of the Titans movie from 1981. Squeeze his ears to make his wings pop open, revealing a traditional analog dial clock face.” —Kevin L. Nenstiel

Price: $9.88

9. A mat to protect your hardwood floors from Christmas tree stands (both scratching and leaking).

Promising review: “I wanted a way to protect the hardwood floors from the metal base of our artificial tree. I had seen something like this product for about three times more in a catalog, then found this on Amazon: problem solved! The mat is thick enough to do its job and lightweight enough to roll up and store.” —Donna Smith

Price: $19.27

10. A magnetic board that’ll help kids learn how to write numbers.

Promising review: “I have this in my Montessori classroom and there is rarely a time when there isn’t a child using it.” —Heather L. Grace-Rutledge

Price: $17.38

11. A grooming glove to use with your dog, cat, horse, rabbit, or any other animal that sheds.

 

Promising review: “Perfect for grooming my greyhound. She thinks I’m petting her (since the brush is a mitt), and the bristles are soft enough for her very thin coat, yet they get the job done.” —Mrs. Black

Price: $8.99

12. The soundtrack to Moana (because even though you haven’t seen the movie yet, you already know your kids are going to want to listen to it on the drive home from the theater).

Let’s be real, you’ll probably want to listen to it too.

Promising review: “It’s a fantastic soundtrack, Disney always does a great job. You can also hear the influence of Lin Manuel Miranda. I also really like the incorporation of the Polynesian culture in the music as well. Very catchy songs. Already on round two through the soundtrack.” —Michael Christensen

Price: $7.99

13. An “Ugly Christmas Sweater” that’s actually more cute than ugly.

Promising review: “I hate spending money on myself, especially for clothes I don’t expect to have much use for. If I had been shopping for a sweater for someone else, I wouldn’t have looked at this, thinking ‘you get what you pay for.’ I expected to get a flimsy, cheap sweater, but figured it would get me though a couple holiday to-do’s I can’t get out of. Well, it arrived and I LOVE it. It’s very soft and so much heavier than I expected. It’s very comfortable, I may wind up wearing it all winter.” —Cheryl B.

Price: $22.99

14. A four-tier rack to keep shoes organized in an entryway or closet.

Promising review: “What a wonderful surprise! I have come to expect disappointment from online purchases like this, but this little rack is BETTER than I expected. It does arrive flat, but takes very little effort to put together. It is very sturdy and quite attractive…functional and yet rather airy…doesn’t look like a lump of furniture taking up space. We had a mess of shoes by the front door…they all fit nicely…most levels have four pair. Since I wear a lot of flip flops, the height is sufficient for me to double stack…I can get eight pair on my level. The top is used like a shelf and has no problem with the weight of purses, laptops, etc. We even use the floor underneath sometimes for flip flop overflow. 2-1/2” from the floor to the bottom of the bottom shelf, and 7” between the others.” —Jane K. Smith

Price: $29.99

15. A cookbook put together by American Girl that’s filled with scrumptious recipes for cupcakes, cookies, and other desserts.

Promising review: “I can’t say enough about this cookbook. It’s wonderful for beginning bakers. My 7-year-old has made four of the recipes all on her own thus far. They aren’t super simple recipes, but are written for young bakers with developing skills. Everything has been delicious!” —Linda Smith

Price: $13.56

16. A set of playfoam that comes in stocking-stuffer-sized containers.

 

Promising review: “This stuff is amazing!!!! It’s like little foam balls that stick together with some kind of binding agent that does not stick to your hands. You can mold and shape objects out of it, but it doesn’t stick to any surfaces (like Silly Putty does). It’s super easy to clean up and store in a bag. My kids absolutely love this stuff and play with it for hours.” —Handy Family

Price: $6.47

17. And a set of four classic Christmas movies on Blu-ray or DVD (Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town, Frosty the Snowman, and Frosty Returns).

Promising review: “I grew up in the 1970s watching most of these movies on TV, and I’m pleased to know my children have grown up watching them too. Now, instead of waiting to catch them on TV, we can pop in a DVD when it’s convenient for us and get in the Christmas spirit.” —Lisa Kearns

Price: $12.98
