Very, very happy today to add the missing 1981 Blue Party Time Sindy which we show in her box to match the pink and the yellow versions we have already. This lovely mint doll was donated by Joanne from Essex, who describes herself as a Sindy devotee. We may be a tad biased, but we can't think of a better doll to devote yourself to Joanne.
Sindy was definitely 'on point' with th...Read Full Post »

Did you know every Friday night in Paris is roller skating night? Pari Roller has been going since 1994 and is held every Friday from 9:30 pm to Midnight. It normally starts near Montparnasse Railway Station and is a circular skating route through Paris at night. It is only cancelled in bad weather. And best of all, it's free to participate.
For example tonight (10th September 2021) the jo...Read Full Post »

Happy Birthday Sindy!
Today Sindy is 58 years old and our website has been running for 11 years now. We wish we could say that we were looking as good as Sindy does with those extra years.
It seemed a good idea therefore to return to one of Sindy's nicest party outfits to update it with a couple more variations for her birthday. Hallo Dolly (Ref 44232) is a wonderfully exhube...Read Full Post »

Sometimes in updating the Museum you come across something which means you need to rewrite whole sections. Half of me thinks... pretend you didn't notice that, the other half thinks... nope you have to record that!
So Ball Gown (Ref 44375) which was so straightforward now shows three variations and discusses the conundrum of what was the right...Read Full Post »

It's with great sadness that we have learned that Johnny Clarke has passed away. Johnny was very personable; unfailingly kind, great fun and with a wicked sense of humour. He was a good friend to the museum and a number of his contributions can be found filling in gaps that we had. We will always remember him with affection for climbing into his loft at very short notice (i.e. the night before) ...Read Full Post »

The 1982 Sindy Outfits and Separates are now online!
Finally we have completed this quite difficult year. A lot of our issues surrounded dolls that we knew of which were not shown in Trade Catalogues and issues regarding their details.
There are still dolls and outfits which we haven't included yet because we still cannot verify the year for certain:
- We still can't prove if the bunches Sindy in the T-shirt and shorts sold in a bubble pack shown on page ...

There is always a great feeling of satisfaction when we can complete a previous year with a hoped-for missing item.
A long, long time ago we asked if anyone had the beautiful McSindy outfit with the orange and blue kilt. We knew this was a big ask, it's a difficult outfit to collect anyway and NFRB (Never Removed From Box) seemed almost an impossible request. But we were given the yellow & black version and the blue & black version, so we thought we could at least ask.

Last October we substantially revised Sindy's new friends to include additional details of the boxed dolls and information on the new friends competition. Lots of you said how much you liked the additional detail, thank you!
At that time we were also able to show a new exhibit, a beautiful blonde sidepart Mitzi.
We speculated was there a red ...Read Full Post »

FInally, we are publishing 1981 Scenesetters.
Only taken a year or so! I have come to the conclusion that we only write stuff when we feel postive and there was not so much to be positive about with Covid this last year. Our Sindy Museum is our happy place! But here we are and another page published. 1981 Scenesetters included some great releases and part of the issue in p...Read Full Post »

It's been a happy weekend chatting with a couple of lovely ladies who contacted the Museum about their 1960s Sindy Friends. I don't have any of Sindy's friends, as they are not what I collect, but still it was such a great joy to look at their lovely dolls.
I had been feeling for some time that this page needed updating because I felt it would be nice to add some more detail about the dolls themselves and I wanted to include the Mitzi and Betsy competition.
