LEITH TOY HOSPITAL - EDINBURGH'S REPAIR SHOP FOR TOYS

Do you or your child have a favourite toy who’s just been loved and cuddled that bit too much? A teddy full of holes, a doll with missing limbs, or someone who’s just lost their smile? 

Old-Ted-in-bed

Don’t panic! Here at Leith Toy Hospital, we’ve seen worse! We can give them a careful operation (under anaesthetic of course), and make sure that they come back to you healthy and strong enough to withstand many more years of love and hugs. 

In our Leith repair shop, we carry out teddy repairs and doll repairs every day ranging from much loved children’s toys to antique bear restoration.

Favourite toys are the centre of a child’s world, and it can very upsetting when they become damaged. We know how important it is that they retain the same character and expression, so will make absolutely sure that this is preserved. Our past patients have ranged in age from 1 to 120 years! They are all treated with dignity and respect and rest in little beds during their stay here.

CHRistmas toy repairs

We get very busy in the run up to Christmas. Please be aware that if you need your toy back in time for Christmas, we will need to receive it by the end of September. 

For toys received after this date, we will decide on a case-by-case basis whether it will be possible to do in time, and a 40% speedbuild charge will apply. 

Services and Pricing

We offer a huge range of soft toy repairs, from patching to tiny waistcoats to a full reconstruction! We also offer a doll’s hospital service, and repair and restore modern and antique dolls. Our doll repair services include restringing, eye replacement and even limb replacement. We also offer mechanical and electrical toy repairs. 

Leith Toy Hospital During COvid19

Toys need healthcare too, so we are still working hard to fix your toys! Many of us are working from home but there is always someone in the workshop to answer the phone and receive post.

If you have a toy you’d like us to mend, then you can post us your toy (see our contact details below). We recommend posting it via Royal Mail Special delivery which is tracked and signed, and we’ll return your toy the same way. Please remember to include your contact details in the parcel. 

If you would prefer to drop off your toy we have a new protocol for dropping of or collecting toys in person. Please read our guidance on how to safely drop off your toy before visiting the Leith Toy Hospital.

We have been doing our best to help out during Covid by making scrubs for the NHS as well as face masks for the public.
