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 avocado tool that’s basically a one-stop shop for all your guacamole making needs.
Promising Review: “I am a firm believer in owning as few specialty kitchen tools as possible, because they can pile up. However, this one is a must-have. The multi-slicer side is fantastic. The rounded edge allows you to scrape the avocado from its skin, while slicing the avocado at the same time. The result is perfect avocado slices in one swift motion! The pit remover in the center is better then a knife because it has three blades that go into the pit at once, making the pit less likely to fall off when you’re trying to remove it.” —Amazon Customer
Available in green and white.
2. A face moisturizer guaranteed to give you that dewy look.
Promising Review: “Before moving to Arizona, I never thought twice about face moisturizers, but once I relocated here for law school, I started to notice how dry my skin would become due to the weather. I saw this specific product and thought that I would give it a try. Now I am just over the top with the results. My face is always so supple, and I get a lot of compliments about my skin, which is always nice. I am happy I decided to by this one. Best purchase ever!” —Sheree Wright
3. A Bob’s Burgers cookbook because everyone knows you have the best buns in town.
Promising Review: “Made the bruschetta burger this evening. Fiancé and I made four. He easily ate two, I struggled putting down the second but I couldn’t stop myself. Now I’m awake at 1 a.m. with burger and mozzarella cheese slowly chugging through my intestines. I’ll need to double my exercise routine on days before, during, and after we make another. It was literally too good for me to stop eating when my body told me I was full.” —Betsy Corbett
4. A toddler urinal so you can train your tot to pee standing up.
Promising Review: “This is the perfect size for my two and half year old that we’re training. Now we just have to get him used to standing and aiming after making him sit to pee for so long. He used it tonight so I think he’ll figure it out quick. We have it suctioned to the side of the washing machine, which is in our bathroom. It suctions well and the light-green part is easily removed for dumping urine. The orange piece rotates easily. It’s great!” —katie
Available in blue, brown, and green.
5. A starch alternative that’ll make ironing your clothes a breeze while guarding them from stains and wrinkles.
Promising Review: “Excellent starch for quilting. I was having trouble doing the small-cut pieces when making blocks and this has really helped me to make a much better seam and line up points. No smell, which is important for me as I get headaches easily. Comes out fairly even and clear on all fabrics I’ve used so far. Thankful to friends who recommended this product!!!” —Milissa
7. A bathing suit for your next beach vacation.
Promising Review: “My favorite bathing suit! Very cheeky and cute. Just strappy enough to be in style, but not cause strange tan lines! Great quality and color.” —Eileen
Available in sizes S-XL and a variety of color and print combinations.
8. Some sippy cups designed with a 360-degree drinking edge that automatically seals when your toddler stops drinking.
Promising Review: “Love this cup and so does my daughter! She started using it at six months and never even tried the regular sippy cups. I did all types of research on sippy cups and found this was the best fit for the both of us. Even got my niece who is two months younger than my daughter to start using these cups.” —motherofone
9. A set of face masks with a solution for any of your skin’s problems.
Promising Review: “I like the cold feeling when you put it on your face. I just put it on and it’s already making my face feel more refreshed.” —Amazon Customer
10. A sushi-making kit so you can finally make a meal people will want to eat.
Promising Review: “We had a sushi-making party at my house and EVERYONE enjoyed using the items from the kit! Very well put together at a VERY nice price!” —LauraP
11. A set of kitty socks that are just too purrrfect.

Promising Review: “I gave them as a gift and they were loved! Good quality material and well made. Especially love the dip opening in the band. I give them thumbs up!” —Sara James
12. A food scale to help with portion control and measuring foods for cooking.
Promising Review: “A must-have if you keep track of portions and amounts in the kitchen. Easy to use and switch units of measurement. Very accurate and small enough to have on your countertop.” —TMP geek squad
13. Some liquid ass because we now live in a time where the rancid smells of your backside can be bottled, sold, and shipped right to your door…welcome to the future.
Promising Review: “This stuff literally smells like ass. Bad ass. Horrible ass. You-need-to-go-to-the-doctor ass. Tried it out last night on my boyfriend. Here is a summary of my night:
5:00 p.m.: Boyfriend on laptop in living room. He had been there for hours, so I decided it was time for him to get up.
5:05 p.m.: Sprayed Liquid Ass three times on a sweater in the other room, then nonchalantly dropped it in the living room, about 10 feet away from the boyfriend.
5:06 p.m.: Boyfriend asks if I forgot to turn the bathroom fan on.
5:08 p.m.: Boyfriend comments on how stinky the cats poop is.
5:15 p.m.: Boyfriend, with his shirt covering his nose, scoops all three cat boxes in hopes of eliminating the wretched stench.
5:45 p.m.: Boyfriend goes on a mad hunt, insisting that the cats must have crapped somewhere in the house. He picks up every piece of laundry on the floor, throws the bathroom mats in the washing machine and finds a face mask and gloves to put on. (I am a nurse and keep some supplies at home.)
6:25 p.m.: Boyfriend becomes convinced the cats must have stepped in poo and tracked it all over the house. After smelling all four of the cats, he decides the cats must have cleaned themselves by now. At this point, after seeing all of the good this spray had done, I sprayed it thrice more. Once in each bedroom and once in the living room.
6:30 p.m.: Boyfriend sweeps and mops all of the tiled floors, sprinkles baking soda over the carpet, and vacuums the entire place. During this time, I make sure my bottle is hidden really well. I can’t afford to get caught on this one.
7:30 p.m.: Boyfriend becomes convinced there must be spoiled food somewhere. He takes out the trash and loads the dishwasher.
11:00 p.m.: While finishing up the laundry, Boyfriend discovered the sweater. He decides the cat must have wiped his paws on it and says we need to make an appointment with the vet because the smell is concerning.
I will be using this spray about once a month for the rest of my life. Thank you, Liquid Ass. Thank you.” —Kay
14. Some washable crayons so you’re never stuck with the art your kids (or drunk friends) leave on your wall.

Promising Review: “YES! WASHABLE! They really work, amazing! Now my little tagger can color without us freaking out.” —MGR
15. A popcorn popper for a collapsable device that makes perfect kernels in just under two minutes.
Promising Review: “I LOVE hot-air popcorn as a snack. The reviews for the Lekue Popper were good and — hooray — accurate. No measuring cups, no bulky appliances to store, and barely any un-popped kernels. I skip the oil and add a little melted butter and salt.” —Shadowcat Sophie
16. A Beauty Blender because it’s really as awesome as everyone says it is.
Promising Review: “I scoffed at the very idea of spending $20+ on a SPONGE. Two days ago, I succumbed to the hype. I rationalized that I was doing this for science and that this is just another sponge, therein maintaining my reign of intellectual superiority over the herd mentality sheeple of beauty. I was wrong. I submerged, squeezed, stippled, and wonder of wonders, feel like I used half the product, got better coverage, look more natural, and an hour after application, am somehow less oily than I would typically be. What sort of molecular sorcery is this? I could punch myself in the cussing face for my arrogant skepticism. If you’ve thought this was ‘just another sponge,’ I urge to learn from my mistakes. I have truly been humbled by this tiny pink sponge of the gods. —Kyleigh Jane
17. Some wool dryer balls that are reusable, shorten drying time, and naturally soften your laundry.

Promising Review: “The first part of September 2016 I started to notice brown flakes in my dryer. I thought there was a problem with my dryer. I contacted my repair man and he told me that using liquid fabric softener builds up on the outside of the tub and eventually flakes off. Normally he says that to clean the drum they have to take the washer apart and actually scrape the drum. This really concerned me so I decided to try the wool dryer balls. Well, I am amazed how well they do. I put five in for a large load and three for a small. The noise is very minimal and I have had very little static, nothing I can’t live with. No more fabric softener for me and now I think of the money I save when I do the wash.” —Nancy C
18. Some watercolors so you can let out your inner artist.
Promising Review: “I really like the Prima Watercolors and especially love the Tropicals. I am a beginner watercolor artist and find these colors on par with Winsor & Newton. I may even like these better. The tin is the perfect size for travel.” —Rikelle Brande
19. A water fountain with three different flow settings, providing your cat the freshest water possible.
Promising Review: “This is so stinking cute. My cats were scared of it at first, but now they love it. I bought it with the Catit multi feeder and it looks great. It is very quiet, unless it needs to be refilled.” —jamie
20. A gate to keep the big ones out and to test how smart your little ones are.
Promising Review: “The gate works just fine. Probably best for animals as my 18-month-old figured out the cat door pretty quick, and thinks it’s a lot if fun to crawl thru.” —RJB
21. A prostate massager that’ll be the biggest bang for your buck.
Promising Review: “Seriously, there is no better prostate massager for the money, and perhaps, at any price. This is an incredibly high-quality toy, made of really nice, soft, yet durable, silicone.” —The Dark Knight
