Sindy Doll Factory

Funtime Sindy?

I was checking out the Sindy collectors Facebook page this morning and someone had left a link to this article dating from 2010. I am sure many of you may have seen it before but thought I would share for the benefit of those who haven’t. Be sure and check out the comment thread which goes right up to November 2020.



  1. Oooo, spooky! I just read this article again the other night! It’s a shame Helen hasn’t responded to some of the later comments as I’m sure there’s a wealth of information to be gleaned from some of the responders. Great pics!

    • I guessed you were. Betsy went on sale after we left the UK and I don’t believe she was ever sold in Australia. I don’t remember any advertising for her anyway.


  2. Thanks so much for the link! What a fascinating article, and all those personal reminiscences are marvellous. Wouldn’t it be fabulous to get all these people together to chat about their factory days. It was a different era then. I hope Helen followed up with these people.
    Your Sindy photos are lovely – such sweet faces on these dolls.

  3. Thanks for posting this again. I read it the first time around and didn’t know where to find it. I lived In Canterbury while the Pedigree factory was open, though my daughter wasn’t much interested in dolls as too young. It still irks me to know that it was just down the road, whereas now I would love to get my hands on the vintage clothes!
