About Us

Our Story

 The Doll Cradle is a family owned and operated business for 54 years. We opened with the passion to repair dolls and inform the public of their family keepsakes. We restore valuable heirlooms but can stop to do emergency surgery for a child’s favorite toy. We buy and sell not only vintage dolls but all major brands of play dolls and of course the accessories needed. The Doll Cradle is the oldest doll hospital in the Midwest and continues due to true integrity and experience in business. 

Who We Are

We opened in 1970 in the greater Kansas City area. Our store is licensed and insured to handle your precious heirlooms with care. We are experienced with professional care and service. 

Meet The Owner

Connie Harrell is a certified appraiser and works actively in her community and doll organizations to supply all facets of expertise in the doll world. We hope you plan to visit and experience an extraordinary doll store.
