Christmas in September! The toy industry is predicting that 2015 could be the “best year in a decade” and Walmart is getting a jump on the biggest season, starting its Toy Week two weeks earlier than usual.

Sensitivity and political correctness are reportedly ruling some college campuses, and some believe that childhood coddling is to blame. Campus rules and guidelines are beginning to instruct avoiding “microaggressions,” small actions or words that are seen as violent or offensive (asking a non-white student “Where were you born,” for example). Some professors are also being asked to use “trigger warnings,” warnings when course material may include violence and abuse that could “trigger” the trauma of a student who experienced something similar in the past.

NBC’s American Ninja Warrior has sparked a full on fitness trend. The obstacle course that contestants battle their way through on the show is being replicated in gyms across the country so that anyone can train to be a Ninja Warrior.

At the same time, the number of applicants to the show has skyrocketed, going from 5,000 at the end of season 6 to 50,000 at the end of season seven, the most recent. (Racked)

Actors will play the now iconic children’s show characters, with no prosthetics or costumes, and the plot will be an original story that retains the quirkiness of the series. (Mashable)
