This wasn't your usual case of "some assembly required." Employees at Fisher Price and education students from Central Connecticut State University joined together at the toy manufacturer's East Aurora grounds Thursday today to modify more than a half dozen Power Wheels vehicles, so that children with various mobility challenges may operate them.

East Aurora Police say they have charged a Buffalo woman with third-degree larceny in connection with the theft of toys and merchandise from the Fisher Price toy factory.
