Five toys sit on a windowsill together, each waiting for different things. A dog on a sled is waiting for the snow. A teddy bear is waiting for the wind so he can fly his kite. When the things they’re waiting for happen, the toys are happy. The rabbit toy isn’t waiting for anything in particular but just enjoys waiting and watching the world with the others. They watch the seasons change and the celebration of holidays, like fireworks on the Fourth of July. They see storms and rainbows. New toys join them. One of the toys falls off and breaks. The last toy, a Russian doll cat, ends up making their number ten.
