With Sindy being the standard size doll in the UK you could also get plenty of doll knitting patterns for her and the rest of the line - e.g. as in THIS pattern from Robin and THIS one from Patons. There's a whole website dedicated to Sindy knitting patterns, check it out HERE. You could read about Paul in Sindy's Gift Books and annuals too, or in the series of Sindy Adventure Stories.
Due to low sales Paul was discontinued for 1968 - though a framed photograph of him was included with Sindy's 1968 bedside table set - and it would be almost two decades before he and Sindy could be together again...
- Jump into Action. Red and blue tracksuit, white sneakers, and red gym bag.
- Dashing in Denim. Dark blue jeans, white sneakers, blue shirt with yellow bow tie, and yellow cardigan.
- Special Night Out. White dress shirt with black bow tie, light blue cummerbund, black trousers, black shoes, and white jacket.
Paul had a bit of a haircut in 1988, something which he was mistakenly lead to believe made him 'super cool' (boxed pic HERE). He didn't gain any new fashions, but his '87 releases were all still available - check out the updated catalogue photos HERE.
In 1989, realising he looked a bit of a berk, Paul was given a full makeover. In addition to Free Wheelin' Paul (boxed pic HERE + TV ad), there was also the dapper looking Pearly Prince Paul (boxed). Pearly Princess Sindy had a picture of Paul in her handbag locket - the romance...
Paul really began to hit his stride in 1990. There were no Paul fashions that year, just two dressed dolls - Smash Hits Paul (boxed pic HERE) and Jet-Away Paul wearing the eye burning colours expected of the early 90s tourist.
1992 saw the introduction of two new dressed dolls, Popstar Paul (pictured), and Cool Shades Paul (boxed). 1991's Bow Tie Paul and sportswear set was still available, joined by a unisex T-shirts assortment and a very 90s fashion collection:
There were a whole range of all new Pauls available in 1995. A long haired Paul (pictured) was released as part of the Crimp 'N' Bead collection. Another long haired doll, Summer Looks Paul (boxed), had a hippy vibe, while the sensibly cropped Mountain Fun Paul (boxed) complimented Climbing Sindy (TV ad for them both HERE), and her adventure 4x4 (TV ad). Finally there was I Love Glitter Paul (boxed + TV ad), who was advertised as being 'more romantic than ever'. There was only one outfit available however, as part of the three pack Wedding Collection. Not shown in the catalogue is Pop Star Paul (boxed).
Sindy was originally inspired the Ideal Toy Company's Tammy, who debuted in the States in 1962. Tammy had a dad doll, a big brother named Ted, and a younger brother named Pete - read more HERE and HERE. In 1965 she gained a boyfriend named Bud who, somewhat disturbingly, was a dead ringer for her brother Ted...
