The specialized Natsume clinic in Tokyo is working to restore dolls and other toys to what they were in the past, to the delight of their owners, such as Yuki Kato, who brought her doll.

“I thought I had no other choice but to throw it away because it was worn out,” Cato, 24, told AFP. But I learned that there is a clinic that deals with this kind of issue. ” She added, “It may not be the same again as it used to be.” But I came here hoping to see her better again ». The clinic’s founder, Natsumi Hakuzaki, said it provides treatments ranging from “eye surgery” to hair transplantation and suturing.

This young woman began processing stuffed toys four years ago, in her hometown north of Sendai, after she worked in a dress-making store; Clients would often ask if she could fix their beloved toys.

“These people see stuffed toys as family members, partners or close friends, and not just objects,” Hakuzaki said. After fixing their stuffed toys, many of them hugged her or started crying. ” That experience inspired her to open a venue that offered special treatment. For the ewe-shaped stuffed toy “Yuki-chan”, Hakuzaki began the treatment by removing the filling, then washing it with a special soap, describing the process as a “spa” treatment.

The clinic carefully documents each stage of treatment, and publishes pictures on the Internet so that owners can follow the treatment closely.

Realizing how people can become attached to their stuffed animals, Hakuzaki considers it essential to treat toys as if they were alive.

The 34-year-old moved her job to Tokyo two years ago and now repairs 100 stuffed toys a month with five other “doctors”. Customers send in toys that need attention from Hong Kong, Taiwan, France and Britain, and some have had to wait up to a year for an appointment.

It takes about ten days to repair a doll or toy, and the clinic’s website includes pictures of “sick” people who have recovered. There is only one other “clinic” for the repair of stuffed toys in Japan, which is in Osaka, and there is a growing demand for its services, despite prices ranging from 10 thousand to 500 thousand yen (95 to 4800 dollars), depending on its situation.
