Pedigree Dolls and Toys introduced Sindy to the public in September 1963.
The company had been making dolls for over twenty years and after seeing the success of Barbie they decided to produce a twelve inch fashion doll of their own.

I do have a small collection of 1970s Sindy’s who were bought mainly to model the outfits but I have become quite fond of them and whenever I consider moving them on to make room for more older Sindy’s I find I can’t do it.
MIE outfits have flat metal poppers, normally painted to match or to co-ordinate with the outfit.
I am not sure how widely available Barbie was in Britain at that time, certainly I never saw one although Tressy and Tammy were both available there.
So you’re kind of like ‘Oh my God, still the nappy-wearing fucking lame-o over here…’ Caz: You thought you were better than the ] You were like ‘I’m too busy having a life.

Marx made some very nice accessories too but Sindy was never as popular as Barbie.
