Sindy was launched in September 1963 by Pedigree Toys Ltd. She first appeared in our lives in a 30 second TV advert that was shown in the London area. In 2013, Sindy celebrated 50 years with a new anniversary range.
Here are some of Claire’s Sindy dolls. They came to us lovingly wrapped in protective tissue paper and carefully labelled.
Claire lavishly furnished the Super Home with her collection of Sindy ‘Scenesetter’ products, a large range of miniature replicas of lifestyle items. Sindy slept in a luxurious four poster bed, and ate at a dining table laid with her own dinner service, silver cutlery and gold candelabras. And she could serve guests at her dinner parties from her very own hostess trolley!
Some of our favourite items, though, are the ones that Claire made herself. This ingenious homemade TV set has a selection of channels to choose from and a guide. Programmes range from the News to Top Gear!
We loved looking through Claire’s collection and are very pleased to look after it. Did you recognise any of the dolls or accessories from your own childhood?
