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 book filled with tips and techniques to help you become a hand-lettering artist.

Promising review: "I'm so impressed with this book. Lots of clear instructions written in an approachable, friendly tone. And plenty of inspiring examples of fonts and hand lettering projects. Highly recommended for anyone looking to learn more about the craft." —mommyshopsonline

Price: $15.25

2. An inexpensive shelf that's perfect for placing in an entryway.

Promising review: "These closet aid units are wonderful. We have three of them. I even put one in my hallway for our shoes when we come in from outside. No more looking for shoes. I have two in my closet for summer and winter shoes that I wear the most. They are very sturdy. My husband works with wood and as he was assembling them, he commented on how well they were made." —Amazon Customer

Price: $29.97

3. A silly octopus ring toss game that'll teach hand-eye coordination at bath time.

Promising review: "This adorable bath toy was an instant hit with my 15 month old! He loves the colors and I love that it isn't a squirt toy, so I don't have to worry about mold forming on the inside." —Amazon Customer

Price: $6.99

4. A leather Kate Spade shoulder bag that'll go with everything.

Promising review: "I LOVE this purse! It's the perfect size, outstanding quality, and I've probably had 15 compliments from friends, family, and complete strangers since I got it about 6 months ago. I've never spent more than about $40 on a purse before, but I'm really glad I splurged on this one." —OakShade

Price: $298

5. "Vintage" skeleton key charms (for when you're too lazy to hunt down actual antique keys).

Promising review: "I bought these as part of a Valentine's Day project I'm doing and I could not be happier. These are well made, not too flimsy, and the designs are very nice. They look exactly like the picture." —Alyson

Price: $9.99

6. A platform bed with an upholstered headboard that totally looks like it came from West Elm.

Promising review: "Love, love, love! This bed does not look nearly as cheap as it is. I always get compliments and it's very sturdy. The installation is very easy and straight-forward. I was very hesitant to buy furniture off Amazon, but very satisfied with this purchase. I waited 7 months before posting a review to make sure I really love the product, and I am really impressed and happy!" —Sarou

Price: $202.34+

7. Slip-on shoes that are covered with completely adorable illustrated pups.

The pups look a *lot* like cats, but they say they're dogs, be it.

Promising review: "So cute and really comfy! I have a lot of issues with my feet and I can comfortably wear these all day no problem!!! You cannot go wrong with these shoes. I love Toms, but find the memory foam insert in these BOBS to be way more comfortable. They are even cuter in person and I get a lot of compliments on them." —Connie Rogers

Price: $25.74

8. An anchor that attaches to a beach umbrella so you can screw it into the sand and keep it from blowing away.

Promising review: "We recently spent a week at Lake Michigan and used this beach sand anchor often. It's lightweight (important when you have to carry it up a dune!) and easy to turn into the sand....even with a little arthritis. The anchor made it a whole lot easier to get the umbrella positioned in the sand and always kept it from tipping or blowing over. One day the wind was so strong our umbrella threatened to collapse, but it stayed anchored!" —S. Roan

Price: $9.88

9. Dish detergent that smells like pomegranates and won't dry out your hands.

Promising review: "I love this dishwashing liquid. It's not harsh on my hands, it smells great, and it eliminates grease!" —Natasha Willis

Price: $3.97

10. The Crazy Ex Girlfriend soundtrack to listen to on repeat until it's time for the next season to start.

Promising review: "One of the smartest and funniest shows on TV has one of the smartest and funniest soundtracks in the history of mankind. Rachel Bloom is a genius and you owe it to yourself to listen to this genius song baby of hers. Buy this. Thank me later." —Peter Martino

Price: $11.49 (get Volume 1 here)

11. A versatile hand mixer (with a built-in bowl rest) that comes with a snap-on case for easy storage.

Promising review: "Great mixer. The snap-on case that holds the mixer blades, whisk, and cord is pure genius....everything is neatly stored together." —Animal Lover

Price: $14.96

12. 128 markers for children *or* adults to use with their coloring-book collections.

Promising review: "Love these little washable markers. It is a double set and would be great for a classroom. I originally purchased some for my grandsons, but I liked them so much I bought some for myself. They write both fine and wide lines. The colors are nice and vibrant. Each marker is approximately four inches long with the cap on." —A&D

Price: $15.89

13. An energy-saving nightlight that'll cost about $0.25 cents a year to operate.

Promising review: "I wanted a light that didn't shine up. I wanted a light that was unobtrusive. I wanted a light that was bright enough to light my way. This fits all of the criteria perfectly. In fact, it's so nice, I will likely replace a bunch of my aging night lights (that are getting very dim) with these." —Mike Vande Ven Jr.

Price: $12.99

14. Stainless steel chain mail that'll clean your cast-iron pan with ease.

Promising review: "Amazon probably thinks I'm crazy because I ordered four of these in the past week. I bought one as a Christmas gift for my husband last year and it ROCKS! Hate scrubbing scrambled egg residue out of your cast iron? This product makes you look forward to the task. Pan rusty? No problem!" —B. Bell

Price: $12.99

15. A compact hedge trimmer that'll cut through branches up to 5/8 inches thick.

Promising review: "I have yet to find a Black & Decker electric garden tool that I don't love. This guy is no exception. Makes easy work of the hedges!" —Epeterius

Price: $31.31

16. A pool float that's great for when you want to float but not get wet *or* to fill up with water and use as a teeny-tiny pool when you don't have a full-size one.

Promising reviews: "I live in Texas and I don't have a pool. Once it gets sunny outside, it is miserable to try and lay out on the concrete, even if you have a nice chair because it is just TOO HOT! I filled it up with water so that it just covers my bottom side and I can dip back and forth as needed to be nice and cool and comfortable." —Aja Perrin

"I bought this product because I read I did not have to get wet. My pool is freezing and I wanted to float around my pool without having to get wet. Wow this is perfect! I can even bring my cell phone and kindle with me. If I do get hot, I can always dip my toes in the water." —Miss Nina

Price: $27.50

17. Swim goggles that are super comfortable and stay put on wet heads.

Promising review: "My 4 1/2 year old grand daughter swims like a fish and loves to wear swim goggles, but the strap always slipped down on the back of her head causing the goggles to be too loose. My daughter saw the Frogglez online and I ordered a set to see if they would help. They completely solved the problem and once she puts them on, they never need adjustment. I highly recommend them for others." —Nancy Beverly

Price: $22.98

18. A lantern that breaks down into four micro-lights (with changeable color shields).

Promising review: "Fantastic little device. The individual lights are easy to carry around for night time bathroom trips and when they're all attached, this tiny thing puts out a ton of light. Very handy." —Katherine Semel

Price: $25.94

19. A soothing and moisturizing lotion that's made with hemp seed extract and smells like fresh coconut and watermelon.

Promising review: "This lotion smells like summertime!!! It makes me feel like I'm on vacation when I have it on. It's wonderful and not too overpowering." —Kimberly A. Silva

Price: $9.49

20. And a kite that looks like a giant squid!

Promising review: "Much larger than I expected, in a good way! Practically no set-up, out of the bag ready (I think the handle needed to be hooked on). For a 'barely any wind' day, this kite flew really high!" —Amazon Customer

Price: $7.99
