Soft toys or cuddly toys are modern, synthetic stuffed animals to the British just as plush toys or plushies are modern synthetic stuffed animals to the Americans. These are toys sewn from cloth, plush or other textiles and stuffed with straw, beans, plastic pellets, cotton, synthetic fibers, or other similar materials. Nowadays, the toys could come in many different forms other than animals, such as legendary creatures,inanimate objects and of course, cartoon characters. Nice stuffs, aren't they?

No, this is not an H-D or Harley Davidson, the American motorcycle that had survived theDepression.This two-wheeled motorized vehicle however, could be ridden like any other motorcycle in the market. It takes you from one place to another, perhaps at a fraction of the cost. That'd would bring a lot of joy, wouldn't it?
