Two Sindy updates


I have two bits of Sindy news to share this week. The first is that my new Sindy, which I pre-ordered some months ago has been shipped. I’m really looking forward to getting her after waiting so long.

She is the Flower Magic Sindy recently released. She’s a redhead. I still think that the Kid Kreations Sindy’s have rather big hair but I liked my first one so much I was delighted to get the chance to buy another. I’ll look forward to showing her to you very soon.

I can’t share a picture of her today but here is my original Kid Kreations doll.

My other bit of news is that I just bought another bucket list vintage doll, Canterbury Patch. I’ve been wanting to get one for ages but they are pretty hard to find and usually very expensive. Today I found one on a Facebook Group for what I felt was a reasonable price and she is even in Australia.

If I’m honest I prefer original Patch because I like her cheeky expression but I really wanted this later variant of the doll. Canterbury Patch was the last Patch made and according to what I read she had a brand new mold. I don’t think I’ve ever seen one in real life. Some of them have freckles, some don’t. Some have wavy or curly hair, some have straight hair. There was a lot of variation.

Naomi’s Patch is the only one who has not tried to cut her own fringe.

Both dolls should arrive within a few days of each other. When they do I’ll share their photos here of course.

  1. Hi there,
    How you doing?, well I have to report I have my New sindy. Well so far the pop star one and the flower one like yours.
    I’m really pleased the outfit also seperately is great. I will update you when I have opened them. OK have a great day.

  2. I’m very jealous as here in the UK, the flower shop girl with the ginger curls was listed on Argos, the shop that sells them, and then she disappeared! I really don’t need another doll but I’m guessing your photos of her will make me want her even more!

  3. I would like a Patch doll but they are too expensive. I am hoping I may find one in a charity shop but even there dolls and other toys are getting scarce. My son works in Argos and said the new Sindy s are not as big sellers as Barbie. Probably because it’s collectors like us buying them rather than mums for their children. I have not got one from the new batch. I would also have chosen the flower girl. I have got three from the first wave. My son recently got me the ballerina. I like her dark brown hair and brown eyes. I am leaving her hair in the bun. As a child I would have taken it down to see how long her hair is.

    • Yes, I’m afraid that Sindy is still a bit of a niche product. Even though these new ones have been designed for children as well they are so used to buying Barbie. It’s all mermaids, fairies and princesses and other gimmicky stuff. Patch is normally very expensive especially Canterbury Patch. Postage from the UK is a lot too. I was so pleased to get one for $110 plus $10 for postage. I know that’s not cheap but compared to the several hundred dollars I usually see them for I was happy to pay it.

  4. You’re right about fairies, mermaids and princesses. I have just looked to see if there’s anything new on Argos for Sindy. There are three new outfits. A pyjamas set, a casual jeans, top and jacket which I would choose and you’ve guessed it – a fairy costume. At £10 each they aren’t cheap so I am not rushing out to buy them just yet.
