In 1982 McDonald’s had an executive convention where they’d planned to give all the attendants an 11″ Sindy doll, dressed in a doll sized 1976 Stan Herman Uniform. Sadly the Sindys didn’t arrive in time for the convention and instead they sat stored in a warehouse until 1985, when they were discovered! ‘The Doll Factory’ of West Palm Beach, Florida, sold the dolls by advertising in the Doll Reader Magazine (issue of feb/march 1985) (see right side picture).
The McDonald’s Sindys are still very much searched for by collectors and TLSM is lucky to have one of them! She didn’t come in any plastic packaging and I’m not sure how it should look. If anyone have an unboxed McDonald’s Sindy please contact TLSM!
Here you can see and read more from the very talented Bonita Callaghan’s article about the McDonald’s Sindy from her magazine Mam’selle, June 2022. ->
