    Hobby Lobby

    Arts and crafts store Hobby Lobby is recalling more than 40,000 light-up spinner toys in Easter and July 4th themes after a toddler ingested a coin-sized battery.

    The spinners, sold in various colors, present a choking and ingestion hazard for young children, the store said in its recall.

    About 43,400 of the toys were recalled, after being sold nationwide at Hobby Lobby and Mardel stores from February to April. They cost about $5.

    Anyone who has a spinner can return it to a Hobby Lobby or Mardel store for a refund, if they have a receipt, or store credit without it. Contact Hobby Lobby stores at 800-326-7931 for more information, or visit the recall tab on hobbylobby.com.

    [NATL] Man Visits Disneyland 2,000 Times In a Row

    A Huntington Beach man has set a record for most consecutive visits to Disneyland. Jeff Reitz, 44, has visited the park 2,000 times in a row. Reitz started visiting the park every day when he was unemployed and wanted to keep his spirits up. Employed at the VA now, Reitz continues to visit every day after work because it helps him to decompress after a long day. His favorite ride is the Matterhorn Bobsleds, which he first rode with his mom when he was 2 years old.

    The 14-month-old who ingested the battery later passed it, according to the recall notice.
