1981 Sindy Outfits and Separates

Posted on September 2, 2021 at 9:25 AM

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...

Johnny Clarke RIP

Posted on August 20, 2021 at 12:55 PM


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) ...

1982 Sindy Outfits and Separates

Posted on August 19, 2021 at 8:15 PM

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 ...

1976 McSindy (Ref 44283)

Posted on July 21, 2021 at 8:45 AM

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.

St...

New addition to 1967 - 1968 Sindy New Friends

Posted on July 20, 2021 at 11:40 AM

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 ...

1981 Scenesetters

Posted on July 18, 2021 at 5:05 PM

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...

Sindy's 1960s Friends

Posted on October 11, 2020 at 3:45 PM

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.

Patch's 1967 Brownie Uniform

Posted on October 8, 2020 at 9:30 AM

Back in 2011, Kathy and I took our Sindys along to a Toy Museum for a Day charity event. You can read all about it in our articles section. One of our most popular little exhibits was our Brownie camp. It was just something we pulled together using Kathy's Patches and some camping bits of mine.

1970 Sindy Weekenders (Ref 12GSS) (Boxed doll outfit)

Posted on May 10, 2020 at 1:20 PM

It's always a joy to amend the Museum when we find out something new. We always said we didn't know everything and would be happy to amend if other collectors had something we didn't know about. Today we have revised the 1970 Sindy Weekenders (Ref 12GSS) (Boxed doll outfit). We now know she did indeed wear an elasticated red headband thanks to the lovely Karie.

1981 Sindy Outfits and Separates

Posted on May 2, 2020 at 10:15 AM

The 1981 Sindy Outfits and Separates has now been added to the Museum.


It's as complete as we can get it for now. You will see that we are missing the Blue Party Time doll and we still don't know the answer to the Baby Blue lingerie set, so we have gone for the 1980 version for now. Sadly, nor can we shown the black Sindy which we believe was issued this year?


There are some possible dolls and or outfits which we haven't included yet because we cannot ...
