Today I thought I’d share some photos I took of a couple of my Sindy’s and one of my Paul’s. I am working on a post about the scooter featured in these photos and needed some Sindy’s to pose with it so I went downstairs and found the box they were packed in. I thought it would be fun to make some of the photos black and white.
Here is a Hong Kong made Sindy wearing “Weekenders” and one of my favourites the Duffel Coat. These coats were incredibly popular when I was a child and this one is so well made even down to the buttons. Sindy was made about 1965-66.
This Sindy is I think, a Lovely Lively Sindy from 1974 or 1975. She has a twist waist and poseable arms and legs. She is much slimmer than the original Sindy’s. In fact, a lot of the early Sindy fashions I collect don’t fit the later dolls very well. Sindy is wearing “Coffee Party” a knit dress which comes in either dark blue or brown. It should be worn with a belt but I don’t have it.
Here are Sindy and Paul together. Paul is wearing “Motorway Man”.
Look out for another post featuring Sindy’s scooter very soon.
