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:
2. A map with "scratch-off" countries and states (so you can mark off where you've been when you get home from a trip).
7. A hair straightening brush with a handy automatic shutoff system (for people who *always* forget to unplug).
Promising review: "I love, love, love this. My hair is relatively short and naturally curly on the ends. I dry my hair, put some velcro rollers in it, hit it with heat from the dryer, and then use the straightener. I can smooth out the ends, straighten it around my face, add some curl to the top, and when I have a wicked cowlick on the back of my head, I use this to shape the hair and then spray with hairspray. It's a curler and a straightener!" —Donna
9. An adorable utensil set for a toddler who's learning how to use a spoon and fork for the first time.
Promising review: "These are great for beginning self-feeding. My 17-month-old can use them to feed herself yogurt, applesauce, rice, etc. They have a great stout and short handle that helps her easily maneuver her food. I put them in the dishwasher with the rest of the silverware, and so far they come out clean and in the same shape as when I bought them." —fantasyteacherreader
12. A water-resistant duffle bag that folds up into a small pouch when you're not using it.
Promising review: "I took this duffel bag with me on a recent trip to Europe. We traveled around Europe for three weeks and anticipated needing more luggage room on our return trip due to souvenir purchases. I'm glad I did, as we ended up going over the weight limit on our first suitcase by 35 pounds. We used this duffel bag to pack soft items such as clothing." —Amazon Customer
