Plush toys have been around for centuries, although there may be controversy about the first plush toy. One thought about the first plush toy is that it is thought to have been made in 1880 by German Steiff, who hand-sewn some stuffed animals for his toy store window display. The story behind the first plush is that he removed the legs from an elephant puppet that belonged to his daughter because she was afraid of it. However, after receiving praise from the elephants, he decided to do more.

Another thought about the first plush toy is that it actually started around 1863, by a family named Margarete Steiff, who wanted to start over as her grandmother did Children sew clothes. She established a small sewing business with her husband and children. However, they stopped the business after their eldest son died of tuberculosis at the age of twenty-seven. Margaret's husband died in 1879. She remarried a shoemaker named Gustave, who helped her open another toy store in 1880 with the stuffed stuff you'd find in any other toy store.

Another idea, however, is that German Carl Werner may have had the first plush toy in 1867, when he created a small animal-type doll for his daughter's namesake, as she was to be sent to her grandparents' house, And her parents are going on vacation. The head, arms and legs of this doll are made of feathers and cotton yarn. She has a skirt, shirt, hat, and even shoes that have been turned into stuffed animals. Carl also invented the Air Cushion Machine, which allowed him to fill with down instead of regular cotton.

Plush toys can also be clothed or unclothed; those that are new and those that are handcrafted by another person. There are some plush owners who collect them just for collection, while others do it because they have some kind of plush that is very sensual to them.

Kids can also enjoy having their own plush toy without worrying about it being taken away. They are fun to play and cuddle with at night and are suitable for all ages. Many adults still like to have plush toys, and some adults like to make them.
