KOJI TOYS SONG
Look at us we're KOJI TOYS
Handmade with love for girls and boys
We can fit right in your pocket
You can take us where-ever you go
My name is USAGI I'm a bunny
Gentle, shy and considered funny
I've been taken all over the place
Every creature knows my face
I run away at the first signs of trouble
In a race I'll arrive on the double
If you can catch me I'm good for a cuddle
My brain is often in a muddle
I am RAION lion of the jungle
You can hear my warning rumble
You can tell what mood I'm in
Whether I'm yawning or causing a din
Energetic, free and wild
Was that a growl or did I smile?
I don't like to run for miles
I'm the king, it's not my style
My name is PENGIN out-going but shy
Even though I'm a little guy
I can dance and sing and shout
It's not easy to figure me out
We penguins waddle and slip and slide
On icebergs and snow when it's cold outside  
On the beach and in the ocean tides
We play and swim to our delight
My name is KIRIN, known for my grace
Confidence and beautiful face
I'm so tall, the tallest of all
Head and shoulders above the wall
I gallop along through life with ease
I have a taste for quality trees
My sense of humor is legendary
I’m a giraffe, you can't miss me
Hello I'm SARU, monkey to you
I like practical jokes and I'm curious too
Clever, mischievous and brave
Is it naughty to show off every day?
My patience is tested if life goes too slow
I look for new fun where ever I go
I'll make you laugh with the games I know
And inspire you with my funny show
My name is PANDA tranquil and strong
I can lounge about all day long
My eyes are encircled all in black
Don't ask me the time, I lose track
I know what’s happening around me
Even though I seem at peace
I set my personal boundaries 
Sometimes you have to leave me be
