Mead Mother Causes Company To Change How They Make Toy

MEAD, Wash. - A Mead mother's concern over the potential dangers of a child's toy has caused the toy maker's company to change the way they make their product.   Tiffany Bowers spends most of her day playing with her two young daughters. 2-year old Kaylyn and 14-month old Kenlyn have lots of toys to play with, but one of Kaylyn's favorites is a new elephant Pillow Pet her mom gave her for Christmas.   "I had put it in her crib and she slept with it every night and during her nap everyday," said Tiffani Bowers, concerned mom.   One day, however, she heard Kaylyn screaming in her crib. Tiffany ran in to check out what was wrong   "I saw the yarn from the mouth had come loose, and wrapped it around her wrist and she was pulling on it so hard that her hand was purple," said Bowers   Kaylyn turned out to be fine, and Tiffany has since removed the yarn mouth from the pillow so her daughter can still sleep with it. But tiffany is concerned that other parents might not realize how dangerous it can be if the yarn mouth comes loose   "I'm sure there's other parents that don't realize there's really fine print that says it's for ages three and over, but even at age 3, I'm afraid something like that could happen to another baby," said Bowers.   Bowers brought up her concern to Pillow Pet, and they responded by addressing her concern via email:   "The elephant Pillow Pets are the only ones that have the yarn mouths and Pillow Pets is going to change them so this kind of thing doesn't happen again."

    MUMBAI - A surgical team in India successfully removed a massive brain tumor from a man Thursday, weighing over 4 pounds. It was a lengthy, nearly seven-hour procedure and doctors believe it could be the heaviest ever recorded.  The tumor, which protruded from the top of the man's skull, was so large that it seemed “like a head on top of another head,” Trimurti Nadkarni, head of the neurosurgery department at Nair Hospital, told the Indian Express.
