I, personally, would gut it and make it into a costume. I find my best scares come from stuff that's not obviously scary, but "well played'.
My current best hit at my haunt is my "bush" costume in which I just sit there unassumingly until people pass by and scare the pee right out of them :P
You could have a "stuffed animal area/room and be in the costume and when people see it and wonder why this is in a haunt, you jump up and scare the life out of them.
