This is not your mother’s doll shop; it’s an experience . Here, dolls are treated as real people: the ‘hospital’ carts them away in wheelchairs for repairs; the cafe seats the dolls as part of the family during tea service; and the dolls’ owners – usually outfitted in matching threads, naturally – take classes with their little pals.

Creepy? Maybe a little, but the fact that the average shopper’s visit lasts three hours is a testament to the immersive environment. There are outlets in many cities now, but this flagship remains the largest and busiest.
