    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 vibrant neon dress you can wear as a bathing suit cover-up — or even rock offshore while running errands.

    Promising Review: “This dress is very cute. It is not see-through, so it can be worn anywhere, not just the beach. The color is very vibrant, and the material is soft and light. I like it very much!” —M.S.

    Price: $13.99 (available in sizes S-3XL).

    2. A jumbo, slow-rising peach-scented squishy toy to relieve stress and keep you entertained in the cutest way.

    Promising Review: "My 12-year-old granddaughter absolutely loves this toy! It’s big, smells great, and rises slowly. She’s worn it out after using it so much. She carries it everywhere she goes.” —Down to Earth Reader

    Price: $7.99

    3. A copy of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People for a little inspiration to make some personal changes that'll improve your life.

    Promising Review: “This is one of the best classic books you will ever read. It can be applied to any goal you want to reach in any area — child rearing, business, finances, spirituality or even self improvement. It is required reading for anyone that has any goals in life!” —Stella Bambino

    Price: $4.12+ (available on Kindle, Hardcover, Paperback, and MP3 CD).

    4. A chimney starter system to evenly light charcoal so you can get to grilling quicker than ever.

    Promising Review: “After buying this tool, I’m ashamed of myself for ever using lighter fluid. I've been grilling for years and never knew about this simple invention. It's so easy to use! Insert charcoal in the cylinder, stuff some newspaper in the bottom from underneath, light the newspaper, wait around 10 minutes, and then dump it into your grill. I light mine inside my grill on top of the charcoal grate, so as not to damage my concrete driveway. I then dump it right into the grill. To me, this is easier than using lighter fluid or having to stack my charcoal like my father taught me. This is hands down my favorite grilling accessory.” —Joshua Storme King

    Price: $14.99

    5. A pretty floor-length floral dress that’s as comfortable as it's fierce.

    Promising Review: “This dress is amazing! The material is stretchy and fits my arms and shoulders perfectly. I am five feet and 110 lbs. and ordered a small. It fit perfectly, and I will definitely be ordering other colors.” —Morgan Strawn

    Price: 8.99+ (available in four colors, sizes S-2XL).

    6. A jar of SPF 50 face sunscreen with aloe and vitamin E for added protection for sensitive skin.

    Promising Review: “I really like this sunscreen for my face. It comes in a tiny container. But it is pretty spreadable, so it works well for the face and neck. It smells good, soaks in fine, and doesn't irritate my extremely sensitive skin!” —McKenzie Shepard

    Price: $10.08

    7. A sturdy natural-bristle brush you can use to dry brush your skin to reveal a healthier glow.

    Promising Review: “I purchased this brush for dry brushing to help with cellulite and circulation. Considering the quality of this brush, the price is excellent. I used to work in a luxury bath products store. The dry brushes sold there were over $15 more and not nearly as sturdy as this brush. My cellulite has decreased in appearance after only one week of use. When I need a new one, I plan to buy this same brush again. Overall, I am very pleased with this purchase!” —KraveMCG

    Price: $9.98

    8. A super cute Gazillion bubble machine to add some extra fun to your little one’s next playdate or upcoming birthday party.

    Promising Review: “This machine does not disappoint! I bought it to use at my son’s birthday party. It makes a ton of bubbles. We tested it out with the little container of bubbles it came with, and it lasted about 10 minutes. And that was with me spilling a little out of it! So I bought a two-liter bottle of the Gazillion bubbles for my son’s party. I also like that it is battery operated, so I can put it anywhere in the yard.” —Chase

    Price: $13.59

    9. A four-in-one hammock float so you can splash around like a boss during your next pool party.

    Promising Review: “I took this float with me to the pool for the first time yesterday, and all of my friends tried it out and now want to order one. Even my husband asked me to order him one. It is perfect for me because I mostly just go to the pool to sit and relax with my friends and have a couple of drinks!” —Courtney Griffith

    Price: $15.99+ (available in two colors)

    10. A quilted fitted mattress pad for some extra motivation to try to go to sleep on time.

    Promising Review: “I’ve had this for a few weeks now, and it has been washed twice. It came out of the washer and dryer just fine and hasn’t slipped off the bed at all. I use it to cover a waterproof sheet and memory foam pad, and it works great!” —Courtney A.

    Price: $16.99+ (available in six sizes).

    11. A cast-iron grill pan with a ribbed bottom to drain fat while cooking your favorite meats to perfection.

    Promising Review: “This pan is the perfect size for grilling indoors. The food is grilled perfectly and tastes delicious. But cleaning the ribbed bottom can be a little tough, so be prepared with a grilling brush to scrub between the lines!” —Fari


    12. A timeless Rubik’s Cube for a throwback challenge you probably still can’t crack.

    Promising Review: “This is a great beginner-level cube! It has a solid turning speed and a great overall feel. The weight of this cube is perfect too. And the colors on this cube are not stickers, making it durable and keeping your cube looking nice after many uses.” —Danny


    13. A two-pack of disposable, non-sticky fly traps to catch the pesky little bugs with ease — no fly swatter required.

    Promising Review: “This stuff works so well! You should start out with the bigger bag, seeing that you will not want to empty this thing and refill it. Once my bag filled up, I just wrapped it in four plastic bags and discarded it. It will really start to kick in on the third day. The smell did not bother me unless I was two to five feet in front of the bag. And you can definitely tell the difference in having some out and not having some out when it comes to flies.” —J.D. Rock

    Price: $12.95

    14. A 48-pack of alkaline batteries so you will never have to struggle with a dying TV remote again.

    Promising Review: “My husband uses these batteries in his insulin pump. He was buying expensive brand name batteries because he thought they would last longer. I ordered these AmazonBasics batteries for him, and they were a great buy. They last as long, if not longer, than the name brand batteries!” —Nancy C. Collins

    Price: $3.99+ (available in two battery sizes and five pack sizes).

    15. A 30-pack of plastic hangers to get those clothes off your floor and back inside your closet.

    Prosing Review: ”It took me a while to find white plastic hangers that were solid, meaning they didn't have the little dip in the shoulder part of the hanger. These are a good weight and don’t feel flimsy. They were decently priced, and I’m very happy with them!” —Kbistro

    Price: $14.01

    16. An oscillating table fan so you can keep cool on even the most dramatically hot days.

    Promising Review: “I love this fan so much! I bought it for my son’s room. And let me tell you, it is really powerful! My son has a hard time staying asleep because of the creeks and cracks he hears in the middle of the night. So after reading reviews, I found a fan that made noise. The white noise is very effective at helping one sleep through the night. Not only is my teen sleeping better, but it also cools off his large room perfectly!” —Angela

    Price: $19.99

    17. A fade-resistant bed sheets set to make your bed the perfect spot for your next Netflix binge.

    Promising Review: "These sheets are comfortable and lightweight. They are also easy to wash, dry, and fold. They are not itchy like the hyped-up expensive sheets that have like gazillion threads per inch. You can easily brush them off, as well — I sleep with my Yorkshire terrier. I love these sheets and would give them 100 stars if I could.” —Gloria C. Vanbibber

    Price: $18.94+ (available in four sizes).
