Teddy and Soft Toy Repairs

Here at Leith Toy Hospital we specialise in both antique and modern soft toy and teddy restoration and repair. We repair and restore all kinds of modern and antique teddies, and our services range from a seam repair to full re-coverings and reconstructions. As well as restoring antique teddies, we’re happy to take on new children’s toys. No teddy is beyond repair – there is always something we can do! We will always give you a range of options from small repairs to full teddy and toy restorations. Scroll down to see more examples of our previous soft toy repairs.

We also have a leather and sheepskin specialist who works on all types of leather and animal skin toys. Find out more about our leather toy repairs here.

Soft Toy Repair Price List
