2020 Sindy dolls revealed at Dollycon


Here is a reblog from Shimmy Shim and I’m trying not to get too excited about the idea of a line of collector Sindy’s that actually look like Sindy. Let’s hope the project goes ahead.

      • I agree,, these look much more like Sindy with evidence of variation on some of the sixties outfits. Tonner just didn’t get the face right, although, like you, I’ve only seen pictures. Unfortunately if £80 is the price tag, that’s way beyond my budget.

      • I imagine by the time we factor in the exchange rate and any import charges she may be nearly $200 here so that’s expensive for me. I like my original Sindy’s so I’d have to be very motivated to spend that kind of money. I thought the Tonner face was a bit wrong too. Maybe not British enough?

    • The early Sindy’s were not sold in the USA although later on Marx did introduce them but they never gained the same popularity. As Pedigree made Sindy under a licencing agreement with Ideal who produced Tammy they would probably not have been allowed to compete with them in the USA.
