1967 Sindy (Weekender)

Here is the Sindy doll from the 1967 catalogue.  She was a transitional Sindy made in Hong Kong and has this stamped on the back of her head and waist. The outfit was the same “Weekender” as before.

She had vinyl legs and arms that was able to bend and hold the position thanks to a wire inside them like the previous Sindy but her head was made from a new vinyl which tends to pale. She had a new facepaint with rounder eyes and red lips and since her blond hair was platinum she got her nick name “Marilyn Sindy”. But she was also available with brunette and auburn hair. TLSM has been told the platinum blond on the photos below is a Marilyn Sindy but she has no marking on the back of her waist so it might be wrong!

TLSM’s dress hasn’t got the top white painted metal popper… sadly sadly

In the end of the 60’s there was also a Sindy produced in New Zeeland. At the moment there are different views on which doll who was the correct NZ Sindy so as with the Marilyn Sindy we are not sure we have a New Zeeland Sindy at TLSM.
