When it comes to high-quality toys or doll repair, look no further than The Doll Hospital & Toy Soldier Shop in Berkley, MI. For over 60 years, The Doll Hospital & Toy Soldier Shop has helped restore weathered or broken dolls for families and individual collectors from across the world. With two skilled artisans on staff possessing a combined 100 years of experience, this shop has tackled a myriad of repairs and has managed to restore approximately 250,000 dolls throughout the years.

The store accepts walk-in and mail-in repair requests, but repair completion can take anywhere from four months to over a year due to the volume of requests received. This estimate will also be influenced by the severity of your doll’s repair needs.

It is also one of the largest independent, specialty toy stores in America, offering a wide variety of other toys. The shop prides itself on carrying only the best and safest toys in production; Michigan families will find a large selection of well-made, safe wooden play sets available for sale and installation by the store’s expert staff. Visitors to the store can browse its 28-foot-long wall of LEGO products, or select from a line of Brio Railway and other wood toys. There’s even a special section of resource toys dedicated to teachers and parents.
