A Weird And Wonderful Trip To The Doll Hospital

Parents like to tell their children that broken dolls or teddy bears will be taken to the doll hospital for medical attention, to fill their young minds with a sense of wonder and spare them from the fact that their beloved toy is beyond repair.

I've always assumed the doll hospital was a product of some caring parent’s imagination, but as these photographs by Jason Reed prove the doll hospital is a real, and magical, place after all.

The Sydney Doll Hospital has been repairing cherished children’s toys since 1913, bringing dolls both plastic and porcelain, teddy bears and many other types of toys back to life with tender loving care.

Jason's photographs reveal the specialized skills involved in this labor of love, and the people who gladly use their crafting know-how to make children's lives a bit brighter.
