In Australia, a place called the Doll Hospital respects that and does everything they can to keep dolls from looking like they want to devour your soul. Originally opening in 1913, the Doll Hospital is still operational, employing 12 “doll surgeons” and repairing over 200 dolls a month (so many dolls…). The adorable […]
