Hi, I'm Martin - this is Newsround live.
The latest toys are revealed at a big show in London.
Och, aye the noo!
You tell us how you're celebrating Burns Night.
And why this trick is breaking records.
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 about 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 to strong for her, winning in straight sets.
but Serena was just too strong for her, winning in straight sets.
Williams is now two wins from winning her 23rd major title.
Well, I think overall, she played at a higher level
than I did today and I think she showed why she is arguably
one of the best of all time.
And staying with tennis,
and defending wheelchair singles champion Gordon Reid
is also out of the Australian Open.
The Scot was beaten in three sets by Belgian player Joachim Gerard.
There are now no Brits left in the tournament.
Now if you love toys, you'll love this.
Imagine a huge hall filled with all the latest gadgets and games.
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.
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?
Are you ready?
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 might be celebrating
Robert Burns' birthday today
with food, music, poetry and perhaps a spot of dancing.
The famous 18th century poet is remembered every year
for his contribution to Scottish culture.
You've been telling us more about his life
and Burns Night traditions.
Today is Robbert Burns Day.
Robert Burns was a Scottish poet.
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 Scots, 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,
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.

A lifeboat station in Yorkshire has gone
and got itself a new mascot - Basil, the fox.
Although he isn't kept as a pet,
the wild animal pops in on a regular basis to say hello to the station.
As you can see, he's not camera shy
and staff say he's nearly as tame as a pet dog.
Now I don't know about you,
but I've heard of people doing back-flips off a diving board,
on a trampoline and sometimes even on a football pitch -
but this has blown my mind.
Take a look.
31-year-old Swedish freestyler Daniel Bodin has become the
first person to ever successfully complete a double back-flip
on a snowmobile.
People have been trying do this trick since 2009,
but it's taken eight years for someone to succeed,
and, as you can see, he was pretty happy.
That's all from me,
Newsround's back this afternoon with Jenny.
Are you ready for adventure?
