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 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

“OH MY!!!  I can’t believe this!!, he looks amazing. Yes, the slouch is fine, that’s what he used to look like. I’m actually crying. Cannot wait for her to see this! Thank you again.” Bear the teddy bear’s person in SC, February 2023

“Mr. Reindeer made it home. He looks great.  Thanks again!”  Mr. Reindeer’s family in NC, February 2023
“Lion arrived today and he looks absolutely beautiful!  Thank you so much for all your work!
I have him on display proudly on my shelf” Lion the stuffed animal’s person in NY, January 2023

“Patrick arrived safely! Thanks again so much for your work, he’s in great shape now… I’ll be sure to recommend you when I can!” Patrick the dog’s family in CA, January 2023

“He made it!! He looks amazing and we are so glad to have him home!” Eeyore’s family in WA, January 2023

“I am beyond amazed by not only your amazing work on Allie and the dog but with how fast it reached me and how secure the package was. I was like a kid on Christmas morning this morning when my husband came in with a box from you. I was not excepting a return for another week.

I just want to say… Allie looks amazing!!! I never imagined just how refreshed she would look with a gleam in her eyes. I was worried that the love of 42 years would fade to something new and that did not happen. Allie looks still loved but yet very refreshed. She has the perfect amount of stuffing and is reinforced in all of the right places. The fur…. I can not say enough how amazing it looks.

Moving to the dog… my daughter was also very impressed to see a face where there was not any, thanks to our loving dog who was naughty for chewing the brand new dog up.

You definitely have my business in the future if we should ever need your incredible services. I will also be sharing out to others as well.

Thank you again for your very caring and immaculate care of out of our lovies.” Allie (the stuffed cat) and the stuffed dog’s family in PA, December 2022

“He looks and feels amazing!!!!!! Thank you so much for everything I truely appreciate it 🙂 🙂 :)” Ziggy the stuffed dinosaur’s person in NY, December 2022

“Beth at Realms of Gold did an amazing job bringing back to life my daughter’s longtime favorite stuffed animal—Rosie the lion.  After years of daily use, Rosie had become quite dirty, her hair had become matted, and she had become quite floppy due to flattened stuffing.  Beth cleaned Rosie, unmatted her hair and gave her new stuffing—in other words, a new life!  One of the best parts of our experience was receiving the “in process” photographs of Rosie in her “spa” and getting stuffed. My daughter was so happy to receive these photos and to experience the cleaning process along with Rosie. Beth also sent pictures of the creation and insertion of Rosie’s new “heart,” which was stuffed with a little bit of Rosie’s old stuffing.  The process of sending and receiving Rosie to Beth’s location was also super simple.  Thank you, Beth, for cleaning Rosie and for making the process so fun!” Rosie the stuffed lion’s family in IL, December 2022

“She has arrived! And she is wonderful! Thank you again, Beth!” Raggedy Ann’s person in PA, December 2022

“I just wanted to say how happy I am with the restoration work you did for my doll. She arrived today. All the tiny stitching, washing, and stuffing. It came out so good!! I think my grandmother who first sewed her would be pleased. And she smells much better. I can’t wait to show my mother. ” Raggedy Ann’s family in Washington, November 2022

“When you have a beloved stuffed animal (or, in my case, a lovie named Bunny that I’ve had for almost 36 years!) in need of some repairs, you want someone to understand how special that object is to you. Beth understands completely and, from my first email exchange with her, I knew I could trust her with Bunny. Beth was extremely quick and responsive any time I had a question, she was able to diagnose what Bunny might need and offer lots of options for me to choose from, and the work she did was nothing short of extraordinary. When Bunny got home, he looked incredible! Beth was somehow able to fix all the holes and tears without making him look any different. The gift that Beth gave me is a guarantee of many more years with Bunny and that is truly priceless. I am so grateful to Beth and Realms of Gold!” Bunny’s person in CA, August 2022

“They’ve arrived safe and sound! Fluffy is so much less squished now and Huggy’s color and stitching look great!
