A century of fixing toys: Haunting look inside the doll hospital that comes with its own cemetery for figures beyond repair

#Sydney's Famous Original Doll Hospital is celebrating its 100th birthday

#It was founded after some dolls were damaged in transit from Japan in 1913

#Dolls are still sent from all over Australia and even New Zealand for repair

With hundreds of plastic legs, arms, and heads stacked high in boxes, it looks like a haunting resting place for hundreds of unwanted dolls discarded by girls who no longer want to play with them.

But although Sydney's Famous Original Doll Hospital does have a cemetery for doll parts that are beyond repair, many of the toy parts littering the workshop are waiting to be given a new lease of life.

For the company has been the saviour of hundreds of thousands of Australian girls devastated when their beloved doll has lost a limb or been damaged in an overly boisterous game and has revived millions of childhood memories.

The workshop is about to mark 100 years of repairing dolls after it was opened thanks to a shipping error in the Australian city back in 1913.

And despite changing technology meaning that many modern children are more interested in the latest gadgets or computer games, the business is still going strong, with dolls sent from all over Australia and even across the sea from New Zealand for repair.

The shop was founded by accident by Harold Chapman Snr in 1913.

His brother was in the business of importing celluloid dolls from Japan but the rubber bands that held them together would often disintegrate and the dolls would be damaged.
