      Exploding Hello Kitty toys recalled

      Although a Hello Kitty toy might not seem quite as dangerous (read:
      life threatening) as the notebooks and cellphones we’re toting these
      days, the explosive tendencies have somehow veered from batteries to
      stuffed animals. In the latest episode of spontaneous combustion,
      Takara is being forced to recall specific Hello Kitty dolls which
      featured a heatable disc that could be warmed and stuffed within the
      lining to keep kids toasty while resting. Apparently the microwavable
      pad housed a chemical substance (manufactured by ADEKA) not quite
      stable enough to handle the heat, sparking a lengthy list of of cases
      where the liquid erupted from its container and provided an
      uncomfortable surprise to the poor soul embracing the creature’s
      volcanic warmth.

      It was noted that this has “nothing to do” with the
      scapegoat-of-the-year (Li-ion cells), but if you (or your offspring)
      just loves to cuddle with this volatile critter, you should probably
      ice the situation before it unleashes something a bit more serious than
      a cat’s meow.
