Toymaker Hasbro said Wednesday that it’s in the process of removing the “Trolls World Tour Giggle and Sing Poppy” from the market and will be offering customers a replacement doll of the popular female character.

Pet Dog Fatally Mauled Elderly Woman, Injured Husband In Vicious Attack
A 72-year-old woman died and her 74-year-old husband was injured after being attacked by their pet dog. The incident took place Thursday in southwestern Sydney, Australia.
According to local reports, the dog — a Staffy cross Rhodesian ridgeback — mauled the woman and attacked her husband at their Hornby Street, Wilton, home. The victims were identified as Rosemary and Derek O’Reilly.
Family members told local media 9News that the dog, named Athena, attacked Derek when he stepped in to help his wife. Officials said Rosemary suffered large lacerations to both her arms and puncture wounds to her right shoulder. Her husband also suffered bite marks and lacerations.
Authorities said the dog had already been restrained when paramedics arrived at the scene. They took the two victims to the hospital where Rosemary was declared dead.

Are Trampolines Safe? These Doctors' Answers Might Make You Rethink Your Backyard Fun
My siblings and I begged our parents for a trampoline every summer like clockwork. We were shot down just as routinely. You see, my mother has been an Emergency Room Nursing Director for many years, and the trampoline accidents she'd seen were multitudinous — we were never getting one. All of her advice against the backyard toy would prove justified when my sister absolutely destroyed her ankle on a neighbor's trampoline one summer. 25 years later, she still has problems with that ankle. When I asked some MDs if trampolines are safe, they did not hold back — much like my mother.
To be fair, the statistics are harrowing. A report released by the American Academy of Pediatrics noted that "Trampoline use poses significant risk of injury to children.Estimates from the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System (NEISS) show that trampoline injuries result in nearly 100,000 emergency department visits a year." And those are just the reported injuries where someone has taken the time to see their doctor. How many of us will go and spend many hours and thousands of dollars for a sprained ankle or wrist? It's quite possible the number is much higher. Most of the injuries were lower extremity injuries, like broken ankles and torn ligaments in the knees, but older jumpers also run a fairly high risk of joint dislocation.

These adorable Fingerlings robo-monkeys are the latest must-have affordable gadget
Hello little Fingerlings, where have you been all my life?
I am an unabashed robotics fan. I'm also someone who has been disappointed repeatedly by consumer robotics.
While some overpromise and underdeliver others overdeliver and overwhelm. The best of them, like Sphero's Ultimate Lightning McQueen are pricey, and the worst of them, like WowWee's adorable ChiP robot dog, are expensive and confusing.
In truth, consumers can only handle so much when it comes to robotics. They like a little bit of automation and intelligence, a lot of simplicity, and pocket-change prices. For consumer automatons, that's a near impossible mix.
Barbie's boyfriend Ken gets a makeover: Cornrows, man buns and new skin tones
NEW YORK - He’s been overshadowed by Barbie for decades, but now Ken is finally getting some attention.
Mattel is introducing 15 new looks for the male doll, including different skin tones, body shapes and hair styles.
Barbie had a similar makeover more than a year ago, both part of the toy company’s plan to make its dolls more diverse and appealing to today’s kids.
Ken hadn’t changed much since he was introduced 56 years ago as Barbie’s blue-eyed, chiseled boyfriend. Now he’ll be sold in three body shapes: “slim,” “broad” and “original.”
He’ll have modern hairdos, such as cornrows and man buns, and come in seven skin tones. And he’ll also be sporting new fashions: think skinny ties, plaid shirts and graphic tees.
