soft Toy Repair

Our sympathetic teddy repairs preserve the character and value of your toy. We will agree on repairs with you before we get started.

Paw pads are often the first part of a teddy to wear out, and we stock a wide variety of materials for them, from felt to velvet.
From £27 per 1

Soft Toy Eye replacement

This wee lamb received a thorough cleaning, a new ear, and plastic safety eyes.

hole repair – visible patching.

This poor teddy suffered a dog attack! Because it already looked quite worn before the damage occurred, we matched the patches to the backing of the mohair in order to blend in with the already threadbare areas.

soft toy surface clean

This little clown is looking much fresher after a thorough cleaning.

new paw pads for soft toy

New paw pads are a great way to smarten up an old bear, and will stop stuffing coming out of the paws as well. This teddy also had its nose and mouth embroidery re-done.

teddy joint replacement

Traditional jointed teddies have flat discs that allow the limbs and head to move. A joint replacement is an easy way to reattach a limb that has come loose or fallen off!

hole repair – patching

This sheepskin teddy had the missing material replaced on its face and body. SInce the remaining fur was still fluffy, the edges of the patches blend in for a smooth finish.

Full Recovering

To make your teddy look like new again, our most intensive restoration service involves covering the toy with new material, keeping the original safe underneath. We can re-cover the whole teddy, or just part, depending on how badly damaged it is. See the Levels of Repair section above for more details.
From £245-£525

Rebuild Missing Limb

We can even re-create missing parts of your teddy, matching the original material as closely as possible.

rebuilding of teddy arm

We can rebuild all or part of a missing limb, matching the original material as closely as possible. This teddy needed a new paw and ear.

teddy stuffing top up

This poor bear had gone very flat over the years. We restored the original shape of the neck with a large patch, and added more stuffing so it would be cuddly again.

recovering of soft toy

This koala had lost all its original fur, we we gave it a full re-covering in new sustainably sourced fur, as well as replacing the leather claws.

full body recovering of soft toy

We can re-cover both jointed and non-jointed teddies. This non-jointed bear was extremely deteriorated, and we had to rebuild a missing leg while restoring it to like-new condition.

full body recovering of soft toy

The original sheepskin material of this teddy was too fragile to patch, so we preserved it under a full re-covering of new sheepskin, keeping the teddy’s shape and features and restoring it to a like-new appearance

hole repair – patching

This teddy had a number of holes on its face and body, so we sympathetically patched them with coordinating fur, while keeping the teddy’s original appearance as much as possible.

clothing for a soft toy

This bunny’s original built-in outfit was faded and stained, so we copied it in new material for a fresh new appearance
