History of Stuffed Animals
Stuffed animals, also referred to as plush toys or plushies, had early roots commercially in 1880 with sales of an elephant pincushion from Steiff in Germany. The company expanded the felt animals they carried and in the early 1900s created/invented the teddy bear.

Gund stuffed animals were introduced in 1898 when the company was started in Connecticut, and Gund continues to be the top soft toy manufacturer in the US.

They are being used more often as educational toys and are becoming more available with a range from tiny finger puppets appropriate for toddlers to larger puppets the size of a five year-old. When size matters in standard plush as well as puppets, there are miniature stuffed animals all the way to extra large stuffed animals – even life-sized for the right price.
