Dating sindy dolls
As I mentioned at the beginning of this page there are some excellent Sindy sites on the internet. g=1&cr=6 – This one is a great site for identifying different versions of Sindy and her outfits and tell her whole story. My Sindy is dedicated to collectors of the lovely Sindy Fashion Doll.Sindy was sold in the USA by the Marx company in 1978 & 79.
Her height varied as well and several Sindys became known as the Mini Sindys because they were so much smaller than the originals.
As a result, the doll's popularity declined and Barbie manufacturer Mattel filed a lawsuit for copyright infringement, which was settled when Hasbro agreed to remodel Sindy's face.
During the 1990s, Barbie's share of the doll market continued to grow while Sindy's diminished, which led to Sindy being delisted from major retailers in 1997.
The Sindy Doll has been through many face and body mould changes as various companies took over manufacture and marketing, Sindy has also had a variety of companions, houses, horses, fashions and professions.
Firstly her makers Pedigree from 1963 to 1986, Marx during the late 1970's (including a gorgeous black Sindy called Gayle pictured above), Hasbro from 1986 to 1999 and vivid Imaginations from 1988 and most recently 2003 New Moon.
