The day the toy store came to life

It was half day closing for toytown

the shopkeepers birthday was here

the shopkeeper turned over the “Open” Sign

and made his way home without fear


He closed the door behind him

and the bell on the door made a ring

not knowing what was going to happen

and the magic events it would bring


The teddies were first to wake up

and knew of the shopkeepers day

so with help of the toys in the toy shop

they made something in their special way


The Animals made prints with potatoes

while the cars made prints with their grooves

and the cowboys and indians trotted about

making colourful things with their horses hooves


And not to be outdone by the big toys

the small toys and puppets helped with their thing

as they brought lots of circles and spirals

created with pipes and with springs


so imagine, he returned in the morning

the shopkeeper saw this colourful sight

The banner proclaiming his birthday

made up by the toys in the night
