Koko loves opening her birthday presents. She has very simple tastes: colorful pillows, blankets, special DVDs and toys, and of course foods and drinks. Penny (Dr. Patterson) takes care of her special birthday food requests by allowing her to select a few from various menus. This year, Koko selected a vegetarian curry tofu dish among other main courses.
