Hi, I'm Martin - this is your Wednesday morning Newsround.
The latest toys are revealed at a big show in London.
Och, aye the noo!
And you tell us how you're celebrating Burns Night.
First up, there's been a really important decision about how the UK
will leave a club of countries called the European Union.
Here's Jenny with more.
Six months ago, the UK voted to leave the EU.
How this will happen has been argued over ever since.
So the Supreme Court -
where the most important judges in Britain sit -
was asked to make a decision
about who decides to tell the European Union
that the UK is leaving.
So, Britain is going to tell the EU it's leaving
by using something called Article 50.
And the Prime Minister Theresa May
thought it should be the UK Government's decision
about when to use it.
But others thought that Parliament - where MPs make and vote on laws -
should do it instead.
The Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish governments
also thought they should have their say.
The Supreme Court has now said that its just the UK Parliament
which gets to decide about Article 50.
So now all MPs get to vote on it.
They are expected to decide that the UK should start saying
goodbye to the European Union.
Theresa May wants that to happen by the end of March.
And don't forget, there's loads more info about that big decision
and what leaving the European Union could mean for the UK online.
Tennis now and Britain's Johanna Konta has been knocked out
of the Australian Open by Serena Williams.
Konta went into the quarter-finals on a nine-match winning streak
but Serena was just too strong for her, winning in straight sets.
Williams is now two wins from winning her 23rd major title.
But the bad luck continues - defending wheelchair singles
champion Gordon Reid is also out.
The Scot was beaten in three sets by Belgium Joachim Gerard.

There are now no Brits left in the tournament.
Now if you love toys, you'll love this.

The London Toy Fair is on at the moment and BBC
technology reporter Zoe Kleinman went along to check it out.
From robot hamsters to electric scooters, there are hundreds of toys
on display here at the Toy Fair in London, including some
we've never seen before.
The these wristbands are coming out this year and they turn
you into a human beatbox.
Every time you move your arms, you create a beat.
Are you ready?
Let's have a go, then.
Shall I start?
So there you go, you can see it's lots of fun and it's designed to get
you moving and also get you interested in music.
The weird thing about this show is there are so many cool toys
but only grown-ups to play with them,
and that's because it is for shopkeepers
to decide what they want to sell on to you.
So it may be a little while before you can
get your hands into one of these.
Now, lots of you guys in Scotland will be marking

We celebrate his birthday because the Scottish are very proud
of what he achieved in his life.
He was a very good writer.
He used the Scottish dialect.
Burns wrote most of his poems in Scotland, but his work has been
translated into over 40 languages.
Och, aye the noo!
He wrote the tune for Auld Lang Syne and the poem the Selkirk Grace.
A traditional Burns supper consists of haggis,
needs and tatties.
neeps and tatties.
Robert Burns wrote a special poem called Address The Haggis
which is sometimes read before the start of your supper.
And there will be also lots of Scottish country dancing
happening at ceilidhs.
