Exotic – This is a story from childhood. Coconut bananas, hippo crocodiles, jungle, pirates and adventure! Someone was in hot countries, someone was not, but we all remember funny songs about yellow hot Africa and the story about 38 parrots. We have Gena the crocodile, Boniface the lion, and even Kesha the parrot with his Tahiti. And any child from childhood is surrounded by toy guests from the tropics – tigers, giraffes, monkeys.
