“The Dolly Fairy”.

Here at Diane’s Dolls & Bears in Barnsley South Yorkshire, I offer dolly hospital services and online sales of antique dolls, 1950’s hard plastic dolls, fashion dolls, Blythes and old teddy bears.
Website based from 1999, I’ve been around a while and gained an honest and professional reputation in the doll, teddy bear and repair world as “The Dolly Fairy”.
I also supply dolls, parts and teddy bears for film sets, theatre props, TV studios and even theme park rides!. I’m also often asked to appear on TV programmes to share my doll repair and restoration knowledge.
The Dolly Fairy is a doll artist too!.. specialising in the customisation of Blythe dolls  and stockist of custom ready dolls for you to customise yourself.
My doll repair and restorations service offers a wide choice of repairs and treatments including doll re-stringing, dolly spa clean, paint work, eye and wig replacements and specialist treatments for Sasha dolls such as oxidised lips treatment and mildew control. Examples of my work can be found in my doll restoration gallery .
