Dive into a world of giggles and fun,

Where bunnies hop and teddies run.

Mischievous Toys

Toys on the shelf,

they quietly sit,

But when we're asleep,

they throw a fit.

Teddy bears dance,

trucks go beep-beep,

All through the night,

while we're in deep sleep.

By the morning light,

they're back in their row,

Pretending to be still,

but we all know.

and run in the park,

Danced in the moonlight,

long after it's dark.

From muddy trails,

to gleaming mall floors,

Tim's shoes have tales,

of adventures and more!

had a giant shoe,

It wasn't for wearing,

but a house with a view!

peek inside with a coo,

Wondering about,

the cat and her shoe.

She'd nap in the heel,

and play in the toe,

Blue loved her shoe-home,

this much we know.

And tiny mice chat with big, friendly cats.

The Hat-Wearing Dragon

There's a dragon in town,

with a big tall hat,

It's funny and floppy,

just bubbles that float,

And hums a tune,

a jolly old note.

With his hat on his head,

and a skip in his stride,

This dragon's the coolest,

far and wide.

Dancing on petals,

In their magical world,

Unveil the mischief of a cookie that fled,

Leaving a trail of crumbs to be traced and read.

In the kitchen,

a cookie took flight,

Hoping to escape,

a munching plight.

Leaving a trail,

of cookie-fun.

Yet in the end,

by the milk it sat,

Ready for a dip,

and that was that.

where time and cows blend,

And the day's mooing hour,

seems never to end.
