As far as TLSM, in collaboration with “Sindytectives”, can say there were eight different wardrobe with boxes produced by Pedigree.
- In 1965 the first Sindy’s (Own) Wardrobe was released and had all white doors with a dark pink cabinet and legs.
- Sometime between 1966-67 the second Sindy’s (Own) Wardrobe was released and two pink letters S were added to the front of the white doors, in the same dark pink colour as the cabinet and legs. The inside of the wardrobe had no changes. It also seems like a sticker was added to the box saying “and EXTRA CLOTHES”. What clothes it referred to is unclear but we believe Pedigree used what was left in stock and therefore could vary.
- In 1968 Sindy’s (Own) Wardrobe changed colour to be completely white and instead of the dark pink letters it now had, a bit more romantic, golden ornaments. But the moulding was the same and the inside of the wardrobe had no changes. The box illustration had a tiny change where the sticker-like circle was added showing the customers how many hearts
- In 1974 the Wardrobe was the same but the box changed to a much more modern design with a photo of Sindy choosing clothes (new clothes, released this year) and also photos showing all of the bedroom furniture.
- In 1976 both the Wardrobe and the box got new designs. The photo of the wardrobe, used both in the 1976 Sindy Brochure and on the new box, shows a “new” model. But we believe it’s just a prototype and that they simply used the old wardrobe cabinet, since the hinges are parted in three like on all the earlier wardrobes. The new model had shorter, two parted hinges, that were fastened a little bit away from the top/bottom of the cabinet. The legs were also removed, the ornaments on the doors changed and the new decorative pediment on the top was added.
- In 1979 the box design was changed and so were the hinges on the wardrobe. They still were the two parted model but they were moved so they started at the same line as the top and bottom of the cabinet.
Sadly I must confess that I don’t think Pedigree managed to keep the “spirit” of Sindy in this product. I just don’t get the Sindy vibe. I’m not even sure if I would’ve guessed it to be a SINDY Styling Head…
Anyway! I like that the head is the same size as a human head and not tiny as the earlier one from 1974. Much easier for the kids to make lovely hair styles and play that they own their own hair salon.
While searching for more information about this Styling Head I found great photos, taken by Trace and Trev, on their Etsy page and they allowed me to use them here (marked with Photo: Trace and Trev)! They also have a website you can visit: www.twistedtoys.co.uk .
Thank you truly Trace and Trev for being so kind and helpful!
