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 absurd inflatable costume that'll transform you into a T-Rex.

Promising review: " I saw a video of someone wearing this costume re-enacting a Jurassic Park scene on YouTube, and right then, I knew I had to have it." —Gordon Reed

Price: $62.06

2. A book full of vegetable-related wisdom from the one and only Martha Stewart.

It includes over 150 recipes plus tips for "choosing, cooking, and enjoying the freshest seasonal flavors."

Price: $15.99+

3. "Leaf" hair clips that actually look like feathers..... but are completely lovely no matter what noun you use to describe them.

Promising review: "They are super strong and have a nice weight to them. The clasp has 2 bumps on it, so you can click it to the first bump, or make it tighter by clicking it down one more time. That's a really awesome feature. I love that this comes with both colors, so you can pretty much wear these with anything, whether you need silver or gold." —Rebecca L.

Price: $4.99

4. A merry dinosaur who spits out balls for babies and toddlers to chase after.

Promising review: "This is a winner—especially for our grandson who is just one month shy of being one year old. Keeps him busy for longer than anything else he plays with. It's one wild scene! If you have a dog that likes to retrieve, it's even CRAZIER!!!" —S. Caffery

Price: $21

5. A magical edition of Trivial Pursuit for fans of the Harry Potter movies.

Promising review: "This game was SO MUCH FUN! I bought it for a birthday party and it conveniently fit in my purse. The questions have all levels of difficulty, so regular fans and extreme fans can play at the same time." —Court

Price: $14.99

6. A handy mat that'll help prevent your cats from tracking kitty litter all over your house.

Promising review: "While there will always be some litter that sticks to your furry little friends for miles and makes it into the couch, bed, and everywhere else, this mat certainly does a really nice job of keeping that initial explosion right outside the litter box in one place. On a normal rug or mat, simply walking across it will track more further and further away every time, but with this one it falls through to the point where it can't be re-tracked. Also, it cleans and dumps out easily, some other mats we've had would catch the litter and never let go, they were impossible to get clean." —Darin

Price: $39.95

7. A brush that's specially designed for cleaning out CamelBak bottles.

Promising review: "I discovered that I was getting some pretty nasty black mold in my bottle and it was very disturbing because I wasn't able to get it out with the normal wash cloth. Now I am able to get in all the nooks and crannies of all my water bottle straws and not have to worry about ingesting mold." —Jessica Olafson

Price: $7.49

8. A hand-held spreader that'll make it so much easier to have a lush lawn your neighbors will envy.

Promising review: "Fantastic and so easy. I was able to weed & feed my front & side yard in about 10 minutes!" —Lauri

Price: $17.97

9. Sorel boots that are sure to keep your socks dry even after you tromp through a surprisingly deep puddle.

Promising review: "Perfect for rainy days when I don't feel like walking around in big rain boots. I've worn them with skinny jeans and leggings and girl after girl has asked me where I got these." —Laurie

Price: $43.98+

10. A durable sponge that *won't* scratch whatever you're using it to scrub.

Promising review: "These are the only sponges I've used that don't tear up my coated pans. These hold up very well and when they're no longer fit for dish duty, I can delegate them to such tasks as cleaning the bathroom or cleaning my workbench." —Super Emo Kid

Price: $2.96

11. A bag of naturally sweetened, soft baked granola that you'll probably end up eating in just one sitting.

Promising review: "I can't say enough about how delicious this particular brand of granola is." —Mrgan

Price: $3.47

12. A folding workbench for anyone who doesn't have enough space in their basement or garage for a full-fledged work station.

Promising review: "I bought one of these about a year ago. This thing is awesome! I have abused the heck out of it and it's yet to break apart." —Richard

Price: $69.99

13. Boinging, dinging, and honking game show buzzers that are ~technically~ for teachers.... but are also great for anyone who wants to annoy their coworkers.

Promising review: "No matter what you teach, anything will become a fun game if you buy buzzers that make sound." —RIKKI

Price: $14.88

14. An easy-care cast iron skillet that'll last you for decades.

Promising review: "This has been my first time cooking with cast iron and from day one, I've used this hefty skillet everyday! I love it! It's heavy, but it's a work horse and it's so much better than the non-stick pans I'm replacing! Eggs cook beautifully in this baby! I've fried fish, did homemade pancakes, bacon, turkey bacon, ground turkey!!! They all were perfection! The more it's used, the better it gets." —RayJoni07

Price: $32.60

15. A pendant necklace that would make a perfect post-dance-recital gift for a little ballerina.

Promising review: "I bought this to give my 6 year old grandaughter at her dance recital, instead of flowers that would die. She loved it and had to put it on instantly." —Lea A. Foster

Price: $8.99

16. A plush mattress pad that probably cause you to start sleeping in even LATER on Sunday mornings.

Promising review: "How good is it?? I actually had trouble prying myself out of bed the next morning it was so comfy." —Kindle Customer

Price: $37.02

17. And a copy of one of the best movie musicals of all time.

Promising review: "A moment of pure joy captured on film. I can never get over the look on Gene Kelly's face when he sings that classic line. It make me smile along with him every time." —Zack Davisson

Price: $7.59
