Scotland’s Very Own Toy Repair Shop

Leith Toy hospital

Bringing your beloved toys back to their former glory
so they can be loved for many more years

What we do

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? Leith Toy Hospital can help with all your toy repair needs!

Hundreds of toys pass through the doors of our Leith repair shop every month, with patients traveling from all over the world for our specialist toy repair and restoration services. Our toy restorers’ work ranges from much loved children’s toys to antique bear restoration. 

Favourite toys hold many memories and connections to the past, and it can be 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, cared for by our team of expert toy restorers. We can do everything from sewing patches to re-building broken limbs, and no job is too big or small.
