I have been collecting dolls now since the 1990’s although I already had a few before that. I collect several types including dolls from the 1960s, the type I played with as a child. In fact I still have my first baby doll and several of my other old dolls including a Sindy from 1963 or 64.
I also like dolls made by the Australian company Netta. I feel a connection to these dolls because the factory was in Adelaide where I lived for many years.
However the largest part of my collection is fashion dolls, Sindy of course but also Tammy and both vintage and modern Barbie dolls.
I live in the Huon Valley in Tasmania with Cindy the dog and Polly the cat. I also enjoy scrapbooking, taking photos of places around Tasmania and seeing new places.
My doll wishlist:
A Pedigree Walker-I am always watching these on eBay. One day I will get one.I got one but now I want another one!
- To own every outfit in my old “Sindy Set” booklet from 1964-5
A Swirl Ponytail Barbie-I’d settle for a repro but a real one would be brilliant. –My sister got me one for Christmas. How good was that?
