Is this furry critter a soft toy or an insect?

What is this: a plush toy or an extra-furry insect? Duh, the latter. The Rosy Maple Moth, which, as its name suggests, feast on maples. They also have cartoon-like red or pink legs and antennae, yellow bodies and hind wings, plus pink forewings with yellow triangles across the middle. The North American moth has males with a wingspan of 32-44 mm, and females, 40-50 mm.
