There is not much difference between a stuffed toy and a plushie. In fact, both are one and the same. Stuffed toys are basically toys which are stuffed with soft fabric. A plushie is a common usage which refers to soft toys only. Both of them have smooth fur attached on the outside while the inside is filled with cotton or a similar kind of material. The word plushie comes from the word plush which means extravagant or luxurious. Plush is an adjective that can be used to describe different objects. Plushie is derived from plush soft toys or plush stuffed animals. Since they come in different sizes, shapes and colours, they are loved by children. Plushie also sounds very cute which is why it goes well with soft toys. Over the years, it has become more common and is interchangeably used with soft toys. Some people might not be aware of the word plushie as soft toys and stuffed animals are more commonly used even today. Plushie, on the other hand, is a more recent trend which is picking up quickly in terms of market terminology. So if you are looking for soft toys, stuffed animals or plushies, they are all one and the same.
