You can use the new Photoshop CS5 Puppet Warp tool, to easily move or alter objects in an image.  

In this exercise, we will reposition the arm of a plush doll,  and place it right above the cup.

Drag the object into the background image.

The object exists now in its own layer.

Size and place where needed.

Select the part of your object that you wish to change.

In this case, I am using the Quick Selection tool to achieve this.

Select:   Edit  -  Puppet Warp

The Puppet Warp mesh displays within the selection

Click on the shoulder point of the doll's arm

This is like pining down a piece of paper on a board

Now click on the tip of the doll's hand as shown

This will act as the moving point of your object

Click and drag on this second point and drag your mouse up, down or back and forth, to manipulate the arm wherever you wish to place it.  

Go back to your first pin to drag the arm closer to the body
 
Pretty nice, huh?

Press enter to release the Puppet Warp

Press "Command - D" to deselect

You can add drop shadows, highlights or other details to enhance your image.
