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. Although we think their extra clothes were phased out by this time.
Poppet in 'Coat Dress' (Ref 9GP1) (Boxed doll outfit)
Poppet was redesigned and her urchin haircut was changed to a longer straight style which reached down her back. She was described as “a new look Poppet”.
Her outfit was a coat dress. In the leaflet she is shown wearing a pretty pastel pink and blue striped dress fasted at the front with three gold poppers. We have not seen this fabric, but we do know that something very similar exists.
She wore a cotton three-quarter length sleeved coat dress in a printed candy stripe pattern of aquamarine blue, ocean blue and baby pink. It had a sewn-on, turned-down collar of the same material and it fastened at the front with three silver coloured Newey poppers. She wore a blue headband in the leaflet, but we believe it was actually red, to hold back her lovely new hairstyle and she wore white knickers. The 1970 style catalogue and the Tri-ang Christmas catalogue show her wearing white shoes.
Sadly, we don’t have this doll to show you and would be pleased to include her if anyone has her.
