Toy Repairs by Leith Toy Hospital
A spring off from Picture to Puppet, Leith Toy Hospital has a dedicated in house team of repair and restoration specialists. We restore modern and antique dolls, teddies, puppets and other toys.
Whether you want an antique heirloom rocking horse restored, or your child’s favourite cuddly toy is looking a bit too well-loved, we can help.
When you bring in your toy for a consultation, we’ll talk through all the treatment options with you to find the perfect treatment for your toy. We offer a huge range of options, from small seam repairs to complete reconstructions. No ailment is too big or too small!
Your toy will be treated with dignity and respect for the duration of their stay with us. All of our patients are tucked in little bunk beds with some other toys for company. When they’re well again, we issue a return to work slip and they get a fresh ribbon around their neck.
Favourite toys are irreplaceable. We place huge importance on preserving toys’ individual characters, and we won’t make any changes to your toy without your approval. Our sympathetic restorations mean that each toy’s unique appearance and personality is retained. Where new materials are needed, we go to great lengths to source materials that are as close as possible to the original. We have an extensive supplier base of toy making materials, and we can also dye and distress fabrics here in the studio.
The Toy Hospital Team
Our team includes a doll specialist, a soft toy specialist and a mechanical and electrical techinician. We also have a dress and textile historian, so give us a shout if you’d like any custom made period clothing for your toy.
