In an effort to both serve our readers and help support The A.V. Club, we are going to post daily links to deals and interesting items that we find over on Amazon. If you use these links to click through and buy something—not just the thing you clicked—on Amazon, we will see a portion of that income. You don’t have to do that if you don’t want to, but if you do, know that we appreciate it.

Spirograph My Little Pony playset ($7.24, was $10.99)


Yes, Spirograph still exists, and kids are still into it. Pick up this set to create “amazing spiral designs” that you can slap onto “Pony themed greeting cards, notes, and pictures.” It all comes packed in a little tin, too, which is nice.

Stephen King’s It ($9.99 for a Blu-ray, $29.99 for a gift set)

Sure, you’ve seen It, but do you have a T-shirt? Amazon is offering both the straight-up movie ($9.99) and a gift set combo with T-shirt ($29.99) this week, just in time for Halloween. Pick it up and get spooked all over again.

Morning Smile poop stool ($29.75)


Everyone knows about the Squatty Potty, but what about the Morning Smile? This set of two blocks helps you elevate your feet while you poop, thus reportedly making things go a lot smoother, if you will. They’re adjustable and have a “luxurious surface texture,” though the Amazon post notes that the “toilet is not included,” just in case you thought you were really getting away with one here. If you purchase this, let us know how it goes.

Automatic cat litter box ($101.81, was $129.99)


And speaking of poop, don’t you hate cleaning your cat’s litter box? Let this machine do it for you. For just about $100, you’ll get both the automatic litter box and a six-month supply of no-touch plastic bags. The whole set is easy to clean, and the listing notes that it’s “over four times quieter than another leading brand.” Just add the clumping litter of your choosing.

Black + Decker cordless hand vacuum ($67.99, was $151.99)


When your cat throws some of that clumping litter around, you’ll need this Black + Decker cordless hand vacuum. Sleek and lightweight, this vacuum holds a charge for up to 18 months, only charging when necessary. It’s got a flip-up brush for pet hair, and a rotating nozzle. Plus, it comes with a three year warranty, so you at least know it won’t crap out on you until we’re well into the 2020 election, God help us all.

Fight Club ($3.99 to rent, $4.99 to own)


Even if you know the twist, Fight Club is still a thoroughly entertaining movie to sit down and watch. Amazon is making that easier with its low, low purchase price for the movie right now. Rent it for just $3.99, and buy it forever for a mere buck more.

Annie’s Bunny Grahams Friends, six pack of boxes ($17.17)


Looking for a semi-healthy snack that’s still chocolate-related? Pick up these Annie’s Bunny Grahams. For just about $17, you’ll get six, 7-ounce boxes of these tie-dyed rabbits, which are made with no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. Your kids will like them, but you will too.


The Travel Halo ($17.76)

Want to sleep on planes but hate the doofy look of those enormous neck pillows? Pick up the Travel Halo, which is both a sleep mask and a pillow. It’ll let you sleep comfortably while sitting up, and comes with earplugs and a carrying bag. It’s fully adjustable, and is made with a plush, dark fabric that should feel pretty good even on the sensitive skin around your eyes. It still won’t keep you from sleeping with your mouth wide open on the plane, though, so good luck with that.
