60+ weird (yet cool) things on Amazon you didn't know you needed — from $6

cat hand towel, angry mama microwave cleaner, lego bouquet, cake face mask
Where the wild things are? Amazon — you've just gotta do a little digging. (Amazon)

Everyone knows you can get practically anything you're looking for on Amazon. But you can also get some of the most random things that you most certainly were not looking for — and once you've found them, you need them! Such is the case with the following 60+ quirky items (cereal candle or sushi socks, anyone?). And usually, even the craziest-looking among them — including pug eyes, unicorn heads for squirrels and toast-shaped hand warmers — have a purpose other than being weird. They provide clever life hacks, make things more comfortable or offer entertainment. And they start at just $6. These picks are just the tip of the iceberg. The depths of Amazon are truly endless.

Is that caked-on tomato sauce that's all over your microwave getting you down? Don't fret: The Angry Mama is here to help clean it off in a snap. Just fill her with vinegar and water, pop her into the microwave and heat for 5-8 minutes. That's it! While she's in there, the vents in her hair will release a mist of the water-vinegar mixture, which helps soften and release all of that food buildup. Then, you can simply wipe everything down, no harsh chemicals or intense scrubbing required!

$9 at Amazon

One brave customer put Mama to the real test: cleaning a microwave that had been neglected for years. The verdict? "Angry Mama is amazing!" they exclaimed. "I just tried this for the first time on my dad's microwave. As you can imagine a bachelor microwave to look like, it was messy. I did exactly as directed and it was an easy clean afterward! This is a life-changer for us! It has been years since his microwave had been cleaned and I was able to wipe the stuck-on food right off."

Now you can have your cake and slather it all over your face, too! This Funfetti-inspired mask is just as fun as it is effective: The colorful "sprinkles" make it look like a tub of frosting, and the birthday cake scent might just tempt you to take a bite. But you'll want to avoid eating this hydrating formula and instead feed it to your skin twice a week for a more refreshed, nourished complexion. It contains skin-care superheroes like hyaluronic acid, glacier water and squalane to plump and moisturize. 

$19 at Amazon

"So smooth, so luxurious," swooned a cake cosmetics convert. "It's a real treat. Skin is smooth and glowing. Friends and family compliment the healthy look, and I'm over 60 years old!"

Your kids' and grandkids' outdoor playtime just got way more fun, thanks to this next-level bubble gun. They'll be able to blow over 5,000 bubbles per minute, and solution is conveniently included.

$34 at Amazon

"I bought this after seeing it on TikTok and let me tell you … It is soooooo much fun!" proclaimed a pleased parent. "It blows so many bubbles just like it does in the picture and both my daughters love it. If you’re thinking about it, just get it. It’s very well worth the money and you will not be disappointed!"

Bye-bye, (peanut) buttah fingers! This extra-long knife was specifically designed to scoop every last bit of your favorite condiment from the jar without you having to get your knuckles sticky. Its curved end will reach into those corners, and the stainless steel blade helps you stir up natural peanut butters that tend to separate. And, yes, it's even long enough to fit those economy-size tubs for the biggest PB lovers among us. 

$13 at Amazon

"It does EXACTLY what it says and does it well," wrote a nut butter buff. "The PB-Jife is exactly the perfect length for a wide variety of jars ... . The blade and handle connection were the point of biggest concern for me when buying it, but this thing is solid ... the construction is flawless ... It’s the only tool we use now for PB-style spreads and it allows my kiddos to make their own sandwiches while staying clean ... 100% recommend, especially for anyone needing assistance with large jars and natural PB stirring, and may have weaker hand strength (I also have arthritis in my hands, and being able to use this to cut through the PB while stirring with less hand strength than a regular knife was awesome). You can pry my PB-Jife from my cold, dead hands."
