And that's how Stuffed Toys Hospital first started.
"Mummy, Pooh is so flat, dirty and there are soooo many holes! Can you do anything about it?"
The mother fixed Pooh up. The daughter was happy and felt her mum could do more.
It's an unspoken rule for all of us to have a stuffed toy as a baby (a.k.a. chouchou culture in Singapore). Stuffed toys are an important source of emotional support, having gone through life's ups and downs with us, protecting us when we are at our most vulnerable at night in dreamland, and giving us endless hugs whenever we need one. Even as "inanimate" and "invaluable" objects, these stuffed toys are often our most precious items that can be found in the house - and yes, they can deteriorate over time.
Stuffed Toys Hospital now
Since 2018, Stuffed Toys Hospital has repaired >1,000 stuffed toys and satisfied as many owners. We pride ourselves in our gentle, "by-hand only" approach to stuffed toy repairs, alongside our innovation in endlessly creating new methods of repairs, to maintain the original stuffed toy as much as possible.
The gentle art of not destroying your favourite stuffed friend
Stuffed Toys Hospital also hosts workshops to educate participants on the dos and don'ts of stuffed toy care, and how to do some basic repairs.
