Stay overnight in Picture to Puppet’s Guest Rooms!
Come and stay in the back of Picture to Puppet and Leith Toy Hospital! Watch the cuddly comings and goings on the ward and watch the puppet makers and toy surgeons at work behind the scenes. You can even order a puppet of yourself, and stay overnight while it is made!
At Picture to Puppet, we make custom puppets and toys to order and we repair modern and antique teddies, dolls and puppets. We have about 30 patients at any one time, in various stages of repair and disrepair! You’ll be staying in a teddy and doll themed private room.
Leith Toy Hospital is the only toy hospital in Scotland. It’s in a handsome Victorian property in historic Leith, with a fabulous turquoise front door. There are two work rooms and two guest rooms in the property. Both guest rooms can be booked together if you’d like to bring the whole family!
We’re a friendly bunch who spend our days making puppets and mending toys. We usually have big communal lunches on the front step when the weather is nice, which you’d be welcome to join us for.
Guests get 20% off any of our services, including toy repair and custom puppet and toy making. You could get a puppet of yourself made or of one of your child’s drawings as a momento of your holiday! for a look at what we offer. Have a look at our homepage to see all the services we offer. You can also book a full day’s glove puppet making workshop with us (ages 14 and over). We also offer shorter puppet workshops for children!
There are lots of toys in the room, which are available for rehoming at the end of your stay for a donation! For kids, we have a toy nurses kit in the room so they can check the health of all the toys! There is also lots of drawing and colouring stuff so that you can design your own toy!
In the room, there is a double bed, table and chairs and built in wardrobe with shelving. There is a big window facing a courtyard with a blackout blind. It’s on the ground floor and there are four steps up to the front door.
The flat is brightly painted with murals in the bathroom and lots of art.
