For all our dear customers with dolls already in our “hospital” for repair, please note the following:

  • We will be here thru at least early March to complete repairs on dolls and will notify you to pick up when your doll is complete.
  • For some “patients” that we are not able to repair, we will notify you by phone, email, or letter to come and pick up your doll and receive your deposit back.
  • For other dolls that were left for an estimate but deposit hadn’t been paid yet, we will notify you about picking up your doll.
  • If you have been notified recently or in the past that your doll repairs are complete, please make arrangements to pick up starting the week of Jan 22, 2018. We highly suggest you avoid the opening weekend of our sale as we expect to be very crowded and would be very hard to handle a doll repair pick up. If you are not able to get in, then please call the week of Jan 22 and we can arrange to collect your balance over the phone and ship your doll if it is not too fragile to do so.
  • It is unknown at this time if any doll repair services can or will continue, therefore, please check back at in the beginning of March for any further updates.

Thank you for your patience,
The Doll Hospital Management





We are proud to have been listed by Good Housekeeping Magazine as one of the NATION'S top ten restorer's of collectable and antique dolls.


You may have a beloved old doll that is dirty, or broken.  It may be laying in a box --- in your basement or out in your garage --- all in shambles!  We promise not to be shocked.    If you have   strong sentimental attachment, then restoration of a childhood doll (or maybe a doll that was treasured by your mother or grandmother) can be very gratifying. The Doll Hospital & Toy Soldier Shop has restored an estimated 250,000 dolls for grateful clients over the past 65 years. The Doll Hospital has a dedicated staff of 2 skilled artisans as restorers, and believe it or not, we have 100+ years of doll repair experience between us.  As you can imagine, we’ve faced just about every imaginable type of doll repair. We look forward to giving your doll a new lease on life. While we have thousands of antique parts, they are used only in emergency.  we prefer to work with the original body or head components, so as to keep everything as authentic as possible. Over the years we have invented a variety of techniques to bring dolls back to closely resemble their former selves. View our photo gallery for a sampling of patients we have brought back to life!


Sorry! We are unable to estimate repairs over the phone or Internet, because every situation is quite unique.  We need to examine each doll closely to evaluate it's condition and note any pre-existing problems.  From this first-hand assessment,  the nature and cost of required repair or restoration work can be arrived at. For those who are within driving distance,  we   have at least one qualified estimator, on duty, at most times during business hours.   Please note that while we are open on Sundays at various times of the year, we never have doll repair staff available on Sundays.  Read more about arranging for repair here.
