Lisbon's Hospital de Bonecas

When you were a kid were you content to toss a beloved toy in the trash or did you hope that a doll hospital could save your friend? I know I would have wanted my worn teddy to have access to professional medical services. Lisbon's Hospital de Bonecas, or Doll Hospital, was founded in 1830. It's the oldest known facility of its kind, where seamstresses and handymen fix broken limbs and sew worn clothes on children's dolls. The facility is housed in an 18th-century row house off one of Lisbon's main cobblestone squares.
