As pointed out by Twitter user Anzu (via Buzz Net), you can get your beloved snuggle buddies back to tiptop shape thanks to the Nuigurumi Byouin (stuffed animal hospital or plush toy hospital).

Some patients might need only one part of their bodies restuffed, such as an ear or an arm, and those simpler procedures are also available at considerably less.
