You can watch us fixing the Junk Rescue Teddy here!
Danny Sebastian from Junk Rescue spent a day here at Leith Toy Hospital along with a film crew. They filmed us fixing up a broken teddy with a new arm, a new eye, a restuff and a foot repair.
Every episode of Junk Rescue, the team visits a different British craftsperson in their place of work and demonstrates their unique way of upcycling unwanted items. It was really cool to see first hand how a TV programme is made and how much goes in to filming each frame. The film crewe spent a total of 8 hours at Leith Toy Hospital, and there were about 6 people working on it. We had to film every frame multiple times.
The Junk Rescue teddy was in good company – tens of broken teddies and dolls are admitted to Leith Toy Hospital each week for a huge variety of ailments. Our treatments include joint replacements, new paw pads, restuffing, new eyes and much more! Find out more about our available toy repairs here.
