This contest is fueled by the following news: First step towards large-scale manufacture of toys was a true revolution in the entire toy manufacturing industry: Toys were made from papier-mache - mixture of paper and sand, cement and flour. Along with old carver, making wooden houses and horses, molder also appeared in the history of toys. Molder makes toys not with hands but instead molds consistent substance into a shape. With this, transition towards full mechanical production method is completed. From all types of toys - soft toy is the latest one. Soft toys are prototypes of various animals, which were stitched by caring mothers for their children. Soft toys are made from rag cloth, filling them with cotton and decorating them using various fancy work skills, knitting and sewing. These soft toys appeared only in XIX century. At the end of XIX century, handicraft industry, manufacturing soft toys, got wide-spread development on a large scale. At the beginning of XX century, there was a boom in production of soft toys and plush bruin phenomenon emerged. Everywhere around the world, teddy bear has become a favorite toy of not only the children but also of elders. Soft toy is very popular and in XXI century, it is a favorite in spite of technical progress. Today, children play computer games, adore Pokemon and Ferby but very loyal friend remains a worn teddy bear.
