I have a whole bunch of old plush (soft) toys of any kind: dogs, cats, bears... Before I donate them to charity organisation I would like to make a shot, something like a patteren of toys. Do I need property releases for them? Thanks.

The entry for soft toys in the Technical Wiki states :
Oct 11/05 - Patented & Trademarked Product Designs Copyright protection exists in most stuffed animals or toys of any brand and should not be used as the primary (or only) subject of a photo unless accompanied by a property release.
Allowed: Incorporation into a composition where the toy is incidental.
Hope that helps. The technical wiki is a great resource for things like this. You can find it on the upload page (or via my links here).
