Mystery RPPC: Long-ago toddler with fuzzy toy

Here is item #6 of 8 from the Dover Township yard sale. It's an AZO real photo postcard dating from between 1910 and 1930. Nothing was ever written on the back, and this one doesn't have a stamp denoting the photo center that handled it.

And so we have a very young girl wearing a white dress and matching hat. She's a cutie, but the most interesting things here are the toys. She is standing next to a small stool or table. There are two layers of wooden blocks1 and, atop those, is a delightful fuzzy creature. Was it her beloved stuffed Friend? Or just a prop used by the photographer to put something interesting into the photograph?
