Recently here at Sindy-dolls.com we made a very exciting new discovery in
Sindy's world. One of the great things about Sindy collecting is the
seemingly endless mysteries, oddities and variants that continually
surface. Though we must say this latest heart stopping find had us pretty
near insane with excitement!
Several years ago Nav had purchased some Trendy Girls from America.
Factory mint but somehow unusual in that their heads seemed slightly
larger, had non twist waists and a somewhat peachier translucent head
vinyl. We often speculated over what their story was , but now we are at
least part way there in solving the mystery.
Nav has been lucky enough to discover three MIP examples and we can now
disclose that these gorgeous dolls seem to be a consignment of excess
stock because they were sold in various outfits including Sindy Apple,
Lovely Lively Paisley jump suits, 1973/74 Funtime stock outfits and generic
swim suits. Always with standard white Trendy Girl bow shoes.
The dolls are always mint and gorgeous but most interesting and exciting
is the name: Sindy but spelt with a "C" to spell "Cindy" along with a
grammatically incorrect slogan of "High Fashioned doll" NO maker or
country of origin and adorning the card is non other than the gorgeous
cover girl for the early 70s SIndy booklet, Sindy Apple!
The dolls were clearly sold as a cheaper standard doll possibly for the
Canadian and US markets. We can only deduce this as the only examples we
have ever found have come from there... But enough words from us for now.
We'll let the gorgeous pictures do the talking! Watch this space as we uncover
more info on these mysterious and enigmatic beauties....
