Sindy the doll we love to dress

1970 Sindy's friends

In 1970, the original Vicki was still available, and Poppet was updated with a new hairstyle and a new outfit. Please note that Poppet's reference in the 1970 catalogue is incorrect.

You could still collect the tennis racquet charm from Vicki and the double-heart charm from Poppet.

Poppet in 'Coat Dress' (Ref 9GPP1) (Boxed doll outfit)

Poppet was redesigned and her urchin haircut was changed to a longer straight style which reached down her back. Her outfit, a coat dress, differs to the one shown in the style booklet. In the leaflet she is shown wearing a pretty pastel pink and blue striped dress fasted at the front with three poppers. We have not seen this.

Instead she wore a cotton three-quarter length sleeved coat dress in a printed candy stripe pattern of  white, baby pink, lime green, and between the pink and green stripe there was a light khaki stripe which looks to been made by an overlap of the printing of the pink and green stripes. It had a sewn-on, turned-down collar of the same material and it fastened at the front with two large white plastic poppers. She wore a blue headband (some photos show a red headband) to hold back her lovely new hairstyle and she wore white knickers. Like Patch, accounts differ as to her shoes. The 1970 style catalogue and the Tri-ang Christmas catalogue show her wearing white shoes. The 1971 style catalogue shows her wearing red shoes. We have also seen boxed doll examples of her wearing Patch's red shoes and bizarrely a pair that look suspiciously like Patch's slippers with the sponge pom poms. We have therefore chosen red shoes.
