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’ve been meaning to reach out and let you know that Fred arrived safe & sound. A. & I couldn’t believe the magic you worked. I don’t remember how Fred looked when he was new—I got him when I was only one years old—but it seems to me fair to say he looks as good as new or better. I read an essay of Baudelaire’s a couple of years ago that conceives of a plaything as “the first initiation of a child to art.” Whether or not Fred was that for me is hard to say (I do like to think he was). What I can say is he’s an old and dear friend, and it’s a pleasure of the highest order to see him looking so dashing again. Thanks so much for your caring work—”  Fred the teddy bear’s family in NY, April 2018

“I cannot recommend Realms of Gold enough! I had my wife’s childhood Teddy Bear shipped to Beth and her staff after my dog had decided to make a chew toy out of it. The stomach stuffing was gone, there were multiple tears (and tears), one eye was extensively damaged and one ear was almost completely detached. After some research, I decided to give Realms of Gold a call. Beth greeted me with a genuine concern for my predicament and was very straightforward with what she could do for me. After sending her pictures of the damage she was very prompt at getting back to me with my options. She broke down all the associated costs and labor involved so there were no surprises. While she had ‘Teddy’ in her care she was constantly updating me on his progress. From arrival at her location to the spa treatment (cleaning) and the repair of the damage, Beth sent emails with pictures and updates – including saving a little of the original stuffing and placing it in a sewn heart inside of him. She even communicated with me before the final stitch (via email and photo) to ensure that I was okay with the amount of new stuffing he had received, asking if I wanted any more or less. The timeline for the return was spot on as well. She even sent me a message when he was being shipped back home to include the tracking number. All of the repairs were done perfectly and she even managed to clean him without restoring him to a ‘new-like’ condition, thus keeping his character. My thanks to Beth and Realms of Gold for their professionalism and kindness, making this an overall pleasant and stress-free experience.” Teddy’s family in CA, December 2017
