This is the homepage of The Little Sindy Museum (TLSM) a small museum, filled with the love of Sindy dolls, in only about 35 square metres at Handelsgatan 3 in Örebro, Sweden.
The Little Sindy Museum is a non profit hobby of mine. It all started in the 70’s when I as a kid got an active Sindy Ballerina. I loved her and every year, on my birthday and on christmas, I wished for things seen in the Pedigree Sindy brochure I had. And the things I didn’t get I tried to make my self. Born in a family, with a mum who sewed all our clothes and a dad who made things for the family out of wood, it was easy to find materials and start to create. I was lucky to have a great friend just on the other side of our street, Cici, and we played with Sindy a lot during these years.
When I became a teenager I carefully stored away my treasure to give to the kids I might have in the future. Where ever I moved Sindy followed in her big box until the day I felt my two kids where big enough to play with Sindy.
I told them about my happy years with Sindy and opened the box. To my surprice I didn’t hear any happy cheers or see any hugh smiles on my kids faces. I was the only one cheering. They said: “Is it that old stuff!? No thanks! We want Monster High dolls!” I couldn’t believe my ears! But what to do. I put the box in their play room and said: “You might find something fun for Monster High in here if you go throu it…”
When they had grown out of a play room and wanted a gaming room I sold all their dolls and toys they didn’t want to keep. Even my Sindy treasure. I had only kept the box for my kids. At least I thought so. But I felt a bit empty inside. Luckily I met Annika @barbieblackwidow and she led me in to the magic world of dollcollecting in 2018.
In September 2020 I opened the museum after I’d got the license to do so from Pedigree.
Open: by appointment
This website will be updated little by little as there always are more dolls on the way and it’s hard keeping up with all the information in the same pace.
