Normally, I'm the kind of person who gets behind a trend about five years after everybody else does — which is probably why I just bought a pair of wedge sneakers. And even though I might not always be aware of fashion trends, I can tell Amazon products that are going viral.

These are the kinds of things that you look at and see innovation, functionality, and creative genius. Some are already topping best seller lists, while others are still a bit under the radar, but either way, they'll be blowing up your Instagram feed in the upcoming months.

Like fidget spinners. These things are absolutely everywhere, which is not a surprise because they’re essentially toys that adults are permitted to play with during work hours. So, make sure to get one before bosses around the world start to ban fidget tools.

But spinners are just the first in a long line of clever products designed to make your life a little easier or solve a problem you never knew you had. Amazon tracks products that are spiking in popularity and we've narrowed them down to the items with the best viral potential. With lists like these, I might be able to stay up to date with all the latest trends — or at least be only a couple years behind.
