A Doll Hospital With 'Surgeons' That Repair And Give Old Dolls A New Life

Australian “chief surgeon” Geoff Chapman has been fixing and giving dolls and teddy bears a new life, in a doll hospital in Sydney, opened since 1913.

Working alongside him is a team of 12 staff, who restores up to 200 dolls and toys a month—these dolls are mostly from middle-aged and older women from all around Australia, who wants to pass on their favorite childhood toys to kids and grandchildren.

Chapman said that restoring these dolls are like restoring memories, that's why it's so emotional, and the smiles he gets when the owner returns for their toy, is a wonderful feeling.
