In 1985 Pedigree changed the packaging again a little. Read more about it in the article by Matthew Hadley where he explain: “Sindy’s packaging was updated again- all dolls, furniture, homes and vehicles were now in a vibrant almost neon pink, with a turquoise graphic panel edged in yellow. The fashions were in the reverse -turquoise with the graphics on pink with yellow edging. The swing tag logo no longer had a black shadow, it was either blue or pink. “
There were two new riding outfits for 1985, Horse Mad 43074 and Spanish Eyes 43121. The latter is almost too beautiful to be seen as a riding outfit but it should absolutely be in this category!
The Gig 44519 and the Gig and Horse 44520 was both sold this year as well, with the top hat included, just like the previous year. TLSM has not been able to find any striped boxes in the new colours…
I believe it’s safe to say that it was the same Dapple Grey Horse as last year and in 1982, even though Pedigree missed to notice that the beginning of the text disappeared in the background. So no name and number is shown in that text from the 1985 Sindy Brochure. But luckily the number was also written below the horse and it’s the same number, 44566, as it was the earlier years for the Dapple Grey Horses. And also the The Poseable Chestnut Horse 44251 is the same as in 1984. In both of these cases TLSM has not been able to find any striped boxes in the new colours. If you have any picture to share please contact TLSM!
The same Foal 44250 as in 1984 and the same Horse Care Set as last year and in 1980. And like before, TLSM has not been able to find any striped boxes in the new colours for these two items. If you have any picture to share please contact TLSM!
The same Gymkhana Set as in 1984 but below you can see how the box most likely looked in 1985 (in the middle, lower picture)!
As in 1983 and the Sindy Super Home, I think it’s worth mentioning that in the new 1985 Country Manor 44661 there’s a Stable part and it should be shown here as well.
