Zhu Boming, a 73-year-old retired handyman, decided to open a toy hospital three years ago after spending a few years helping people repair(修理 xiūlǐ) their beloved plush toys. He has special techniques to fix broken(坏掉的 huài diào de) or old(旧的 jiù de) toys. Zhu Boming is a specialist "doctor(医生 yīshēng)" with skills to fix broken legs, smudgy skins or missing parts of the beloved toys.

Every toy that has passed through Zhu Boming's skillful hands has an unforgettable story. Zhu Boming believes that he is not only repairing a toy, but he's also comforting(安慰 ānwèi) the owner's heart. He also found that every repaired toy has a real life which is given by its owner.
