      If you canfight your way through the clutter of the Toy Museum (which is really atoy store not a museum) in Hong Kong's Prince's Building, you'll find a manwith a magical skill. Ambrose Lee is his name.

      如果你能在香港王子大厦里找对路,穿过玩具博物馆(其实不算是博物馆,应该说是一个玩具商店)里乱糟糟的各类杂物,你就能找到那个有魔法般技巧的男人:李Ambrose。

      A kid atheart, the 46-year old store owner gets excited when you bring in a vintage toyfor him to fix. He remembers the time a customer brought in a 1960's Japanese robotand asked Lee totouch up the paint.

      作为店主,这个46岁的男人至今童心不老。如果你带来一个稀有的玩具请他修补,他就会立刻兴奋起来。他说他依然记得曾有一位客人带来一个1960年代的日本机器人请他上漆。

      "It wasan old vintage Japanese robot. It was very unique and very rare. Ifelt so lucky. For me, that was the only time I could play with such awonderful rare robot," he says.

      “那是一个很老、很稀有的日本机器人。非常独特、很少见。我觉得幸运极了。对我来说,那是我唯一一次能玩那么稀有的玩具。”

      Over the pastdecade, word spread that Lee could fixold toys, earning him the nickname the "toy doctor."

      在过去的十年里,李先生修复旧玩具的名声口耳相传,人们称他是“玩具医生”。

      This is an agewhen people often throw away things that break, but Lee notices people hang onto old, worn-out toys for sentimentalreasons.

      这个时代里,人们一有东西坏了就扔掉。但是李先生却注意到人们会保留旧的、甚至坏掉的玩具,其中有很感人的原因在。

      His startingrate is HK$500 (US$65) and Lee may charge more depending on the type of work.

      李先生修复玩具的底价是500港币,根据不同玩具的种类,价格也许还会提升。

      "Before Ido the repair, I need to ask the person what they want the outcome to be. It isfunny. Often, they don't want it to look brand new. They want a vintage look, an old lookand that's the effect I need to achieve," he says.

      “在我做修复之前,我要问顾客他希望最后修复成什么样子。有趣的是,他们通常不希望玩具看起来是崭新的。他们要的是保持一种古旧、稀有的样子,而这就是我要努力达到的效果。”李先生说。

      Lee brings outa small vintage teddy bear (seen above) and starts to sew the back seam closed.He uses a technique called a "leather stitch." He claimsit's as simple as tying your shoelace.

      李先生说着拿出了一个小泰迪熊(见上图),在熊的背上缝起针来。他使用一种名为“皮革缝补”的方法,他说,那就像系鞋带一样简单。

      Lee actuallyencourages his customers to try to repair toys themselves because it's more gratifyingto work on something so sentimental. He has been known to teach his customershow to stitch a seam on a stuffed animal and give tips on painting touch-ups.

      李先生其实鼓励他的顾客们自己来修复他们的玩具,因为给感情深厚的玩具做修补是很让人开心的事儿。他曾经教会他的顾客如何给毛绒玩具缝补,以及如何给洋娃娃补色。
