2. Disney Store gets rid of gender-biased signs Following the move by retail giant Target, Disney store in the U.S. is also getting rid of gender-biased signs in their bedding and toy sections. It’s a bold move to help eliminate defined, rigid roles. This year, instead of grouping Halloween costumes for girls and for boys, all of the costumes are listed together and labeled simply as “Costumes For Kids,” or “Costumes For Babies,” “Costume Accessories,” and “Halloween Clothes.” The new costumes, tagged as "I Am Awesome" costumes are also labeled differently: “Cinderella Deluxe Costume for Kids,” “Ultimate Spider-man Costume for Kids,” etc., allowing the kids to choose more freely.

5. Twisted Crust Pizza, anyone? The company that brought us cheese-filled or hot-dog-stuffed crust has yet another new innovation in their product. Pizza Hut is offering a regular marinara-sauced pizza with an add-on of breadsticks for crusts. These breadsticks can be torn off the pizza and dipped into two new dipping sauces—Buffalo Ranch or Cheddar Cheese—created just for this special pizza.

The Twisted Crust Pizza is only available in the U.S., but there's a possibility it might be available in other countries. (prnewswire.com)
