Whether you’re an avid collector or just trying to preserve a treasure from your youth, Gould will answer all your questions, such as: “What's it worth?”;  “How old is it?”;  “Who made it?”;  “What's it made out of?”;  “Can you fix it?”;  “How should I take care of it?”; and  “Where can I get clothes, shoes, etc. to fit it?” Or, maybe you’re looking for a doll you had as a child and need a little help finding it.

Make sure to bring your dolls and teddy bears to the workshop for a little show and tell.
