Shopping online can be tricky. Take it from someone who's accidentally purchased an iPhone box instead of an iPhone — there are tons of websites trying to trick you into buying bogus items. So if there's one lesson I've learned from all my shopping mishaps, it's that you should always, always read the customer reviews.
Luckily for you (and me), Amazon has a robust collection of reviews, along with thousands of shoppers who are dedicated to telling you the nitty-gritty of any product. So what are you waiting for? Sit back, relax, and have fun checking out these genius inventions with more than 1,000 glowing reviews.
