Teddy Repairs by Leith Toy Hospitaldoctor phillip

toy hospital DoctorAs well as creating custom puppets and soft toys, we also run a toy hospital. Whether you want your childhood teddy restored, or your child’s favourite toy is looking a bit too well-loved, we can help!

We offer a wide range of repairs, including replacement eyes, noses and joints, fixing holes, and even new skin! When you bring in your cuddly toy for a consultation, we’ll talk through all the options to make sure you’re happy with what we’re doing.

We understand how important it is to retain each toy’s unique appearance and personality, so we’re careful to keep their individual character while restoring them to health. In addition to teddy repairs, we can fix all sorts of soft toys, from fabric dolls to giant cuddly alligators!

Visit our Toy Hospital website for more information and details about how to find us. You can also see pictures of some of our repairs below, along with a price list.
