निष्ठा के स्टफ्ड खिलौने... (Nishtha's stuffed toys...)

कुछ साथियों और मित्रों की फरमाइश पर कुछ आसान प्रश्न भी डाल रहा हूं...
As requested by a few of my friends and colleagues, am putting a few of easy ones...
 

विशेष नोट : अगर आप जवाब ढूंढ लेते हैं तो ठीक, वरना कमेंट लिख दीजिएगा, मैं जवाब आपको मेल के जरिये भेज दूंगा... 

एक दिन मेरी बेटी निष्ठा मेरे पास आई, और अपनी एक समस्या बताने लगी...

उसने कहा, "पापा, आपने और मम्मी ने मुझे बहुत सारे स्टफ्ड खिलौने दिए हैं, और उन्हें रखने के लिए ट्रंक भी... लेकिन अब जो नए खिलौने आपने इस बार मेरे जन्मदिन पर दिए थे, उनसे मेरे पास इतने ज़्यादा खिलौने हो गए हैं, कि मुझे 12 खिलौने ट्रंक से बाहर रखने पड़ रहे हैं... अगर आप मुझे एक नया ट्रंक खरीद दें, जो 40 प्रतिशत बड़ा हो, तो न सिर्फ मेरे मौजूदा सारे खिलौने उसमें आ जाएंगे, बल्कि एक दर्जन और खिलौनों के लिए भी मेरे पास पर्याप्त जगह हो जाएगी..."

अब क्या आप लोग मुझे बता सकते हैं, इस वक्त निष्ठा के पास कितने स्टफ्ड खिलौने हैं...?

Now, the same riddle in English...

Special Note: If you succeed in solving this one, well and good; but in case, you don't, just leave a comment, and I will mail the answer to you...

One fine day, my daughter Nishtha came to me to tell me a problem of hers...

She said, "Papa, you and Mummy have given me a lot of stuffed toys, and a trunk too, to keep them safe... But now, the new toys you'd given me on my birthday have increased my collection to such an extent, that I have to keep 12 toys outside the trunk... If you buy me a new trunk, which is 40 per cent bigger, I not only would be able to keep all my existing toys in it, but there will be room for a dozen more..."

Now, can you guys tell me, how many stuffed toys Nishtha has right now...?
