Leith Toy Hospital

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? 

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.


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. For more information, use the drop-down menu at the top of the page, or click below: 

Leith Toy Hospital During Lockdown

Due to the advice of the Scottish government, our operations are running differently to usual. We are no longer accepting drop-offs or collections, however we have some alternative procedures in place. 

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 tracked and signed, and we’ll return your toy the same way. Please include your contact details in the parcel. 

If you already have a toy with us, we have in place some alternative arrangements to collection. Please see full details here. 


Our repair shop and studio is at 64 Constitution Street , you can get in touch to find out how we can help.
