About Us

Sydney's Original Doll Hospital began in 1913 with Harold Graham Chapman Senior. Working alongside his father during his younger years, Harold Chapman Jr learned the family trade repairing and restoring dolls and toys.

Harold married his wife Eileen in 1939 and became an integral part of Sydney's Original Doll Hospital. During World War II (WWII) the hospital had grown considerably, with 6 workshops and 70 staff across Sydney.
