This week I would like to give you a sneak peek right into my Emergency Room of the Tonner Doll Hospital. There will be several images of instrument trays, ER supplies, organ donors, and even a patient.
Most of the items you see above are used for orthopedic emergencies. Our Doll Hospital sees more of these than any other emergency. We also handle “plastic surgery” procedures with some of the materials you see below!
This is also a large part of our Emergency Room. Reconstructive Surgery (also called Plastic Surgery..pun intended) is required for many patients due to the natural aging process…but today’s trauma surgery case involves a vicious Puppy Attack! (Warning: The Trauma images below may be too graphic for young children)
This doll was rushed into our ER after being attacked by a puppy. I have been told that this doll did nothing to provoke the attack other than having yummy vinyl perfect for teething pups! Sadly, I knew I was going to have to check our donor dolls as at least 2 or more limbs could not be saved. The organ donors are a big part of our hospitals success!!
I must say when certain emergencies come into my ER—if it were not for the donors…we could not save them all. The puppy attack case was certainly one of those. You may ask where do these donors come from?? They are usually donated by their owners when the doll can no longer be repaired…or when only a few parts are left. We also have an area where discarded dolls or parts are left…….
Naturally…I went to the waiting room to let the parents of this dolly know–she will need several transplanted parts–we all agreed that accepting donated parts was the only way to keep her alive.
Once all the donor parts are harvested….the doll can be re-assembled and ready to be loved again….just not by that Puppy!
Well my friends….I hope you enjoyed a brief visit into the Trauma Bay of our state of the art Dolly Hospital here at the Tonner Company Store!
of course if you have a donor doll you think that could help save other dolls you can always send them to the doll hospital:
