    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 adorable triceratops taco holder to add some prehistoric greatness to dinner time.

    Promising Review: “I was giggling with glee the entire time I was making my plate at lunch with this taco holder. It definitely works better with hard shell tacos, because the sides aren't very tall. But no worries, it still gets the job done with a soft taco.” —Paige

    Price: $12.95

    2. A sleek pair of rimless polarized sunglasses — because there’s no such thing as having too many shades.

    Promising Review: “I mostly buy cheap shades for music festivals because they're guaranteed to get lost or broken. I bought these, and they worked great, even in a day with really harsh sun.” —Johnathan Ruiz

    Price: $11.99 (Available in eight colors)

    3. A super stylish pair of strappy sandals you’ll put into heavy rotation all spring and summer.

    Promising Review: "I bought these for a trip Thailand. I took them without having worn them a single time back home. But they worked so well during my vacation! I explored the city and hiked through the jungle with them on, and didn't get a single blister — which is common with new shoes." —Sabrina

    Price: $15.29 (Available in 21 colors)

    4. An epic Star Wars accordion sun visor to keep your car’s interior from heating up like the Millennium Falcon’s engine.

    Promising Review: “This visor fits great and stays in place in my car window. And it does an awesome job keeping my car cool!" — Amazon Customer

    Price: $9.99

    5. A set of silicone makeup sponges you can use to apply your foundation or even your highlighter.

    Promising Review: “These sponges are comfortable to hold and also very easy to clean. I put a single pump of foundation on the sponge and dotted it on several areas of my face, then used the sponge to blend. It did a good job of blending, and I got an even finish. Using this applicator had a bit of a learning curve for me, seeing that I typically use a blender sponge. Patting doesn't work with these. You should use more of a wiping motion — like a brush — to get your products to apply effectively. And this sponge also does a good job of applying highlighter, if you use its outer edges.” —Koolklawz

    The set includes two sponges.

    Price: $5.99

    6. A beautiful set of colorful gel pens, which are all you need to design your next masterpiece.

    Promising Review: "I may just have to buy another pack of these pens for my kids, so I don’t have to share this one! The ink comes out so smooth. And the pens are labeled with an item number that coordinates with their refill pack, so replacing an empty pen is super easy.” —Cassandra

    The set includes 96 pens, a storage case and a full set of refills.

    Price: $32.99

    7. An enchanted fairy garden kit to decorate your home with a mini dish of magic.

    Promising Review: “This was my granddaughter's favorite birthday present. She is 7 and really into fairies and growing things. So the added bonus of being able to paint and decorate her own garden was icing on the cake. It started growing quite rapidly, so there wasn't a long period before she began to see it come to life.” —P. Crawford

    The kit includes a fairy garden dish, flower fairy figurine, resin fairy house, two resin toadstools, sparkling gems, glittery pixie dust, two tulle butterflies, glass stones, seeds, potting soil, a fine-tipped paint brush, six acrylic paints, and an illustrated instruction booklet.

    Price: $17.80

    8. A pack of pretty iPhone USB charger cables so you’ll always have a backup plug for work, home, or to carry around in your bag.

    Promising Review: “These cords are good quality and charge quickly. The colors are nice and bright. They also have a support piece that connects the braided part of the cord to the port, preventing the wires from being exposed.” —Michele R.

    Price: $10.99

    9. A bag of live ladybugs to help protect your plants from tiny predators that can damage them.

    Promising Review: “When my bag of lady bugs arrived on the front porch, it was pouring rain outside, so the first place they went was my refrigerator. About an hour later, the rain was done, so I released them. The packing material made it easy to spread them out among each of my planters and beneath a heavily invested two year old cherry tree. They got a great start after only a few hours. Many were chowing down individually while others were grouped together in various hiding places. But remember, they are living insects, so there’s no guarantee that they'll stick around long term!” —David G

    Price: $7.25

    10. A buckle-free belt, which is a comfortable solution for pants that refuse to stay on your waist.

    Promising Review: “I found myself between sizes and got really tired of having to hike my pants up constantly. This belt offered a solution to that struggle. It is functional and affordable, and now I want one in every color.” —Kindle Customer

    Price: $25.99 (Available in four colors)

    11. A stainless steel pineapple de-corer to take all the drama out of cutting a fresh pineapple.

    Promising Review: “When pineapples are on sale, this makes it easy to harvest the best part of the fruit quickly and is more economical than buying it already sliced.” —J Powell

    Price: $8.99

    12. A copy of the beloved classic Where the Wild Things Are, so you can treat yourself to another exciting adventure with Max.

    Promising Review: “My 18-month-old just loves this story. The growling monsters must be what got him! I'll say 'where the wild things are' while driving, and he says 'rarrww' in response. The artwork is gorgeous, and it is really good quality for a paperback book.” —Dahlia

    Price: $0.95+ (Available in Hardcover, Paperback, Audible, and Audio CD)

    13. A cute set of of colorful toy boats your little one won't want to put down during bath time.

    Promising Review: “My daughter loves these bath toys. She loves to float them around and fill them with water and watch the water run out of the small hole in the bottom of each one. And mama is happy because there is no place for water to get trapped, so no way for that gross black mold to form inside them like other bath toys.” —Jasmine

    Price: $5.99

    14. A set of anti-tip straps to prevent your flat screen TV from tumbling off its stand.

    Promising Review: “These straps were extremely easy to install on my TVs. I put one set into studs on the wall and another set into a wooden TV stand. There isn't a price I wouldn't pay to protect my son. And these straps work great for the price!”—Dan

    Price: $13.59

    15. A bottle of Neutrogena Naturals facial cleanser, which features a gentle formula made without harsh chemical sulfates or dyes.

    Promising Review: “The Neutrogena Naturals line is one of my favorites. The cleanser works wonderfully and leaves my skin feeling clean and soft without the dryness and tightness caused by other products.” —R H Cooper

    Price: $13.14

    16. An All Eyez on Me vinyl to celebrate the iconic 2Pac’s induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

    Promising Review: “This album was an inevitable addition to my ever-growing vinyl collection. The shipping was fast, and I received the package with zero marks or scratches. It is hands-down my favorite album by Pac. I’ve spun it a few times. But I think it's about time to retire the album since I really want to keep it in good condition." —Colt Hollon

    Price: $15.99+ (Available on Vinyl, MP3, Audio CD, and Audio Cassette)

    17. A reversible patio mat with UV protection to keep it from fading — so it won't ruin the look of your outdoor oasis.

    Promising Review: “This mat is very lightweight and I easily set it up in minutes. It looks amazing and seems to be extremely durable for an outdoor space.” —Eric V.

    Price: $25+ (Available in three colors, sizes 6'x9' and 9'x12')

    18. A sporty Casio digital strap watch with a backlight so you’ll never have to struggle to find the time.

    Promising Review: “This was my first digital watch over 20 years ago. I've had many since. But I searched for this one and bought it again. It fits my personality just right, concise and to the point. This watch gives you all the features you need without the unnecessary frills. I loved it then and still love it now.” —Laurent Lewis

    Price: $9.97

    19. A subscription to Popular Science to keep you updated on the latest trends and innovations happening in technology and science.

    Promising Review: "This is one of my favorite magazines! People often come and tell me about some new technology that I have already read about in Popular Science months before. Obviously, this isn’t the only reason I read this magazine. But it speaks volumes about the quality and relevance of the articles.” —Book Guru

    Price: $5

    20. And a soprano ukulele starter kit that'll have you quickly singing a new tune.

    Promising Review: “This was a gift for my 16-year-old who had no guitar experience at all. With only a book she purchased and some basic videos, she learned to play four songs in a little over a week. I'd definitely give it more than five stars if I could!” —Juan V.

    The kit includes a black gig bag, strap, picks, extra strings, polishing cloth, and a digital tuner.

    Price: $32.99+ (Available in four colors)
