Cloth Doll and Stuffed Animal Hospital

Our motto is first do no harm, just like a medical doctor.  We are a member in good standing of the Doll Doctor Association. We provide quick estimates and won’t start any repairs to your beloved cloth doll or stuffed animal without your pre-approval.  We also send progress reports with photos of your doll or stuffed animal upon request, which our younger doll parents have found particularly helpful!

Please check out this great blog post from Daisy describing her stuffed animal Lamby’s trip to and experience at our hospital!


Please call us at 650-996-2280 or e-mail us at hospital@realmsofgold.com for a free repair estimate.

We send estimates within 48 hours of receiving a request. If you do not hear from us in that time, please call, because one of the emails (ours or yours) is lost somewhere in cyberspace!

Kind words from our cloth doll and stuffed animal patients and their families:

I am constantly taking care of patients and getting happy feedback from patients and their families… but I’m not as fast at updating my web site as I am at sewing, so if you don’t see any comments for a while, don’t be worried…. it’s just because I’m busy sewing! Beth
