Amazon has a list of products called Movers and Shakers, which curates items that are ~trending~ in Canada.

Here are some of the coolest and most useful products from the section this week:


3. This countertop mushroom farm that will take the mess out of gardening.


Promising review: "My four-year-old absolutely loved the grow-your-own-mushroom kit! He has been obsessed with seeing the mushrooms growing in our yard, so I ordered the kit. We soaked the soil overnight and watered it two and even three times a day. After about one-and-a -alf weeks, the mushrooms started to sprout and were ready to pick by day three. My son loved checking his mushrooms every morning and every night to see how much they had grown!"– CarolinaGirl25

Price: $30.

4. This silicone cleaning mat that has different textures to clean every type of makeup brush.

Promising review: "It's perfect! Makes cleaning my brushes so fast and easy and is way cheaper than the one I was going to buy elsewhere. Perfect size for my sink and the suction cups keep it in place while I'm using it. I suggest cleaning the mat with a face cleanser after cleaning your brushes to keep it clean and prevent staining."– Kelly

Price: $13.99. Available in five colours.

5. These stunning socks that are perfect for anyone who loves art history.


Promising review: "These are wonderful! They're quite a conversation piece as well, and if you are in a position for your socks to be seen, you'll probably receive a handful of compliments. I love that it merges the gimmicky weird sock craze with just a touch of class, so while you're looking like fine art, you can be wearing fine art."– Brandon Vinton

Price: $17.99.


6. These super squishy seals that will help you relieve some stress.

Don't worry. No real seal are harmed in the squishing of these blobs.

Promising review:
"Squeeze them and watch them blow up again. Lovely!"– Foster

Price: $5.99.

7. This punny card game that will let you send your friends to the punitentiary. Get it?


Sorry, we had to.

Promising review: "This is an awesome game! My boyfriend loves puns and I got it for him as a gift. So enjoyable as a group and a cool way to spend an evening!"– Amazon Customer

Price: $10.

8. These elephant paperclips that will stomp their way into your heart.


Promising review: "I love cute school supplies! As a 30-something mom of who just went back to college, things like these are a blast. And my friends love to borrow my paperclips, so make sure you get extra!"– Leannabeth

Price: $9.81. Also available in penguins, squirrels, turtles, cats, dogs, and butterflies!

9. This cute turquoise drain stop that will become your new bath buddy.


Promising review: "As an avid bather I'm so thankful for this! It's minimalistic and quirky, unlike those kinda gross looking standard stoppers. It's a win on functionality as well because it seals in place, but if you knock it out with your feet it's super easy to just kick back in place, unlike traditional stoppers."– Elise

Price: $10.95. Also available in white.


10. And this shower hair catcher that will prevent all those cringey cleaning scenarios from even happening.


Promising review: "I've been looking for different kinds of hair catchers and this is by far the best I've seen. I don't buy those cheap ones anymore. This does the work pretty good and I have long hair, too. When I used those cheap ones, I would still have to pull hair out from the tub drain and it was sooooo GROSS! This one catches everything and makes the cleaning process much easier. I bought two!"– Bunnykinz

Price: $15.99. Available in five colours.

11. This powerful little juicer that will make short work of citrus.


Promising review: "My family has used it almost every day since we got it. It juices oranges and grapefruits very easily. It comes with a regular and larger sized juicer attachment that sits on top of the regular one for grapefruits. The power cord also wraps around the base so that it's out of the way when storing."– S. Yeung

Price: $18.99.


14. This genius garlic peeler that will get the skin off without leaving you with stinky hands.

Promising review: "This thing is awesome to peel big batches of garlic. To clean it, I just bash it repeatedly against the kitchen sink and all the peels just fall out. Easy!"– Eric J. LaRose

Price: $5.

15. This colourful bath toy that will have your little ones fishin' for waterbugs.


Promising review: "The bugs and the net handle float, so no searching around the bottom of the tub for any of these. A pleasant little bathtime game for your baby. You do need to demonstrate how it works for the child to grasp the idea. But once they understand, they will play it over and over again."– Hale & Hardy

Price: $9.99.

16. These chalk markers that show up brilliantly on chalkboards, dry erase boards, and glass.

Promising review: "I love these! I bought them for our new chalkboard wall and they are amazing. I'll be ordering more for sure."– Manda

Price: $8.39.
