Proof that even adults hate adulting.

We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a small share of sales from the links on this page.

Amazon has a list of products called “Movers and Shakers,” which is pretty much just fancy talk for things that are currently ~trending~.

This week, people's purchasing habits are showing that adults are also afraid of spiders, and being grown up is stupid. Light-up shoes, middle-finger umbrellas, unnecessary pool floats, indulgent foods...basically I feel validated now in knowing that no one else wants to grow up either.

1. This very creepy but very science-y Cup of Caterpillars that turn into butterflies ($16.49).

They come super teeny-tiny and then you feed them and they grow.

Most promising review: "Bought these for my kids for Easter. It was so much fun to watch the transformation! We received 5 caterpillars in each container and every one of them emerged as a butterfly! I'd recommend this to anyone, and we'll probably do it again next year. Easy to take care of, easy 'maintenance'. Just a little bit gross removing the chrysalis' from the container, as you have to peel away poop and silks." —Michelle Dombrowski

3. These light-up shoes that will make you feel like a fearless adult-child ($30.56 to $50).

You can get them in black, red, gold, silver, or white, and they charge via USB!

Most promising review: "These are so dope! I wear these out all the time. They are the coolest shoes I own. Shuffling every chance I get." —Boim

4. This spider-catching stick thingy that allows you to grab the spidey without hurting it and safety throw it the fuck outside as fast as possible ($22.37).

Most promising review: "This is an awesome little toy for catching elusive creatures who run when they see you coming. I never step on spiders or insects because I think they have as much right to walk around as we do, a concept I had to teach my spouse when I first met him. We enjoyed testing the catcher on the plastic spider that came with it. I actually can't wait to put that fake spider somewhere in plain sight to test the mettle of company who won't leave." —pegslaw

5. This Lodge cast-iron skillet that will literally change your life and your food in the best way possible ($15.92).

amzn.to

The 10.25-inch pan is trending right now — the perfect medium-large-sized pan. It comes pre-seasoned, but you should ALWAYS season a new pan yourself! Get instructions here.

Most promising review: "Has become my favorite all purpose cooking pan. I even prefer it over high-end cookware." —Gary Robinson

6. This aerator that makes a perfect gift for literally any human who appreciates wine ($8.49).

amzn.to

It literally just makes your wine taste better. The end.

Most promising review: "Amazing little product!! My fiancé and I did a taste test as soon as we got it out of the box and the difference was very noticeable. I'm not a wine connoisseur by any means, but this aerator really brings out the flavors of the wine that are otherwise hard to distinguish if you were to just pop and pour." —Chuckie

7. This Alex and Ani Lotus Peace Petals bracelet that is perfect for stacking ($21).

amzn.to

Most promising review: "This is exactly as described. It is so beautiful and timeless. I purchased this for my daughter for Valentine's Day and she loved it! It was well packaged, too. Many more will be added to my collection." —WhippetMom

Get it here.

8. This little knife disguised as a house key that is perfect for all those pesky little tasks like cutting strings and opening packages ($3.95).

It comes in black, silver, gold, pink, and light blue.

Most promising review: "Fun little knife! Has good retention so there's no need to worry about accidentally opening while in your pocket. Blade came very sharp as well. Very discrete on my key set." —Brian H.

Get it here.

9. This enormous swan pool float that is big enough to fit multiple grown-ass adults ($30.89).

amzn.to

Most promising review: "Listen- I've had this swan all over the place and have put its durability to test. We even inflated it and tied it to the roof of my Jeep to bring it to a rope swing with us. The thing is built tough!!!" —K*bone

Get it here.

10. This multipurpose pressure cooker/slow cooker/rice cooker that is pretty much everything you need as far as cooking vessels go ($87.52).

amzn.to

Most promising review: "LOVE IT. Since purchasing this electric pressure cooker/rice cooker/slow cooker/etc, we have used it probably 2-3 times every week. I can sautee in place and then add more ingredients for very easy soups, risottos, roasts, and more. Cleanability and build quality has been great so far, and I have put this thing through the wringer. I expect it to last for many years to come." —S. Lowther

Get it here.

11. This set of four silicone mats that can be used as pot holders, jar openers, or trivets ($8.99).

Most promising review: "Love these! I've removed a 9×13 glass baking dish at 425° and felt no heat. I've used them to open jars and for messy spoons to rest. Easy to clean! I've thrown out all my stained up cloth type pot holders." —AForester

12. This beard shampoo and conditioner that will leave you feeling moisturized and not smelling weird ($37).

amzn.to

Most promising review: "Great product. We had previously only bought one kind of beard wash and conditioner and were skeptical about changing things up. This was no letdown. The smell isn't harsh and it leaves the skin under the beard as well as the beard itself feeling soft and refreshed. Very happy with this product." —Heather Brown

13. The waterproof GoPro Session, which is the brand's simplest and easiest-to-use camera ($199.99).

Most promising review: "The Session is the coolest GoPro I've tested out. In testing it out, I was impressed that it is largely controlled via the big top button: click for on + record, then click it again to stop recording + turn off. I can't believe how small this little dude is. Note that the price has come DOWN A LOT. This camera originally sold for $400. That is a lot of cash." —Spencer in Seattle

Get it here.

14. Chrissy Teigen's cookbook Cravings, which eschews the whole "healthy celebrity food" trend ($17.67).

amzn.to

Most promising review: "Every single thing in this cookbook looks delicious! The recipes are not 'healthy' or 'light.' It's not what you would expect from a supermodel! But she explains how she wants every single bite she eats to be delicious, and all of these recipes fit the bill. Her spunky attitude shines throughout the entire book, making it also a fun read and not just a cookbook." —Mludwig

Get it here.

15. This George Washington wig, which is probably indicative of school play season ($9.95).

amzn.to

It must be nice, it must be nice, to have Washington's *wig* on your side.

Most promising review: "This wig is very well made, it is nothing like the wigs that come with Halloween costumes. After you remove from bag, just shake it out and the curls seem to fall in the right places. The wig fit my eight year old grandson fine and he said it was comfortable." —Barbara Knighton

Get it here.

16. This hemp wick that any true stoner will recognize ($6.99).

amzn.to

Hemp wick is best used for lighting your weed/tobacco products, but it can theoretically also work as a candlewick. It burns slowly and eliminates the need for butane lighters, which affect the flavor of whatever you're smoking (plus you're not inhaling butane).

Most promising review: "I was kind of a doubter of the difference wick made when smoking but the smoke feels so much smoother. The plastic it comes in rips pretty easily but just get a small ziplock so the Hemp doesn't dry and you'll be set. I've had it for a month and I still have over half. Definitely recommend." —Brian Santos

17. These reusable adhesive silicone nipple covers that are perfect for wearing under a backless dress ($25).

amzn.to

This is the color that's trending right now, but they also make them for medium and dark skin tones.

Most promising review: "I'm a small B-cup and don't really need a bra, and find bras uncomfortable. So, I bought my first pair of adhesive Nippies back in January. I have worn them nearly every day since then, and for me, they have been about as perfect as a product could be." —Amanda B.

18. This super cute (and enormous) set of Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 camera and photo accessories ($33.99).

amzn.to

Most promising review: "This is a nice kit for the Fuji Instax camera. Camera is not included in this kit, however there is a nice case for the camera. Also included are different colored filter lenses and a selfie lens cover. This kit also includes multiple different scrapbook type supplies and different ways to frame your pictures that you take with your Fuji Instax camera, this is a really nice kit that is well worth the price." —John Karr

19. This cleansing oil by DHC that is basically a makeup remover, face wash, and moisturizer all in one ($23.39).

amzn.to

Most promising review: "Love, love, love this cleanser. My face has never felt or looked better. I struggle with blackheads and they are greatly diminished with this product. I recommend if you are looking for a wholesome, moisturizing and gentle cleanser." —Amazon Customer

Get it here.

20. The gorgeous Lorac Pink Champagne Palette, which you can only get on Amazon ($19).

Most promising review: "Got this palette a day early! It's great and perfect for travel. You can use all the shades as eyeshadow and some of them as blush, contour, and highlighters for your face. Super pretty and easy colors to wear. For $19 it's a steal!" —Rikki Blake

Get it here.

21. This backseat organizer that's intended for children but also works perfectly for keeping your backseat stocked with snacks, tools, tissues, dog treats, etc. ($7.23).

amzn.to

Most promising review: "This is a must have in your car when you have little ones. It prevents things from being tossed around everywhere. Everything I need for my infant fits perfectly inside the pockets and it does not get in the way of the back seat passenger that may have to sit behind it. It's great!" —evivas

Get it here.

22. This umbrella with a not-so-subtle reminder that you have zero time for sidewalk bullshit ($12.99).

amzn.to

Most promising review: "Since I have to walk off of company property in order to take a cigarette break while working, this umbrella is the perfect companion for the long walk past management's floor to ceiling windows on a cold rainy day." —Nathan D. Rodzewicz
