CHINA SHANGHAI ICU SPECIAL CLINIC FOR PLUSH TOYS

CHINA SHANGHAI ICU SPECIAL CLINIC FOR PLUSH TOYS

72-year-old Chinese retiree Zhu Boming shows an old plush toy before on his smartphone and after being restored at his home in Shanghai, China, 17 August 2019. 72-year-old Chinese retiree Zhu Boming opened a special "clinic" at his home in Shanghai, China. There are no drugs or any advanced medical equipment, only one doctor and his rather unusual patients — plush dolls. Customers sent their old, worn "companions" to him in the hope of a miraculous restoration. It was a coincidence for Zhu to open this toy repair hospital. Before he retired, he was busy with work and had no time to accompany his child, so he bought a plush doll for them. Over time, some parts of the doll wore out. He tried to repair it in a simple way, but his child was unsatisfactory because it looked different. As more people came to him for his techniques, Zhu decided to establish the hospital three years ago. Now he repairs two or three dolls every month, at costs ranging from 100 to 1,000 yuan ($141.6).
