Generations of Lisbon children have brought battered toys to this 'dolls' hospital' for surgery, which takes place upstairs. The little museum built up over the years here is a treasure-trove of antique dolls and other toys and knick-knacks. In the ground-floor shop you can update your doll's wardrobe, pick up a Portuguese rag doll or porcelain doll, or choose from a selection of Barbies. On the third floor of the same building is Plum, a space shared by several young jewellery makers.
