Identifying New Zealand Sindy dolls

A few months ago, I decided to try and research New Zealand Sindy dolls, as some information I came across on a popular Sindy identification website didn’t sound quite right (see here).  I have to report that I haven’t got as far as I’d like.  My task was made more difficult by the fact that … Continue reading “Identifying New Zealand Sindy dolls”

Updating the Sindy Story

People often think that Sindy was only manufactured in England until 1966. But that’s just not true. Last week I had the good fortune to find a vintage Sindy doll at my local op shop.  She has the early, hollow plastic legs, is marked Made in Hong Kong on the back and has the small, … Continue reading “Updating the Sindy Story”

Quick Post: Sindy/ Tammy-type Doll Comparison

This week, I thought I take a few photos of vintage Sindy/Tammy-type dolls, just to make it easy to compare body types and sizes. There always seems to be lots of questions and discussion in my dolls groups about it, so hopefully these photos will be helpful.

If you haven’t read the original post, then you really should, but here is a brief rundown:  the doll appears to be a Sindy … Continue reading “Update: Mystery Mary Poppins Sindy”

Quick Post: Sindy – New Moons

If you’ve seen the most recent incarnation of the Sindy doll, like many collectors, you may be dismayed at what she has become.  No longer a teenage fashion doll, she is now a chubby toddler-style doll, similar to American Girl or Journey Girls dolls.  These new versions are quite nice, and no doubt appeal to … Continue reading “Quick Post: Sindy – New Moons”
