Sindy is Back!

Exciting news from the team over at Vintage Sindy:

 As it's our birthday today we thought that it would be a great day to announce some exciting plans for Sindy next year. Some of you might remember that we had hoped to re-launch a play line in time for her 50th anniversary but sadly it was not to be. 

The good news is that Karen Colley and I ( Denise Deane ) are now working with Pedigree to launch a new play range Sindy in October next year. 

This photo of four OOAK dolls ( they are not production ) are our launch line up - and there will also be two separates available. The dolls will cost around £25 with separates at £15.00. 

We really will be relying on all of you to support the project because although Pedigree has given us full backing and funding, the retailers have yet to agree to sell the dolls and lots of you will know how tough a job this can be! So your help will be vital in making the re-launch a success by helping us to spread the word - exciting times!

It would be nice to see the Sindy brand back in the UK (they sell a fairly wide range in Turkey still, but it's difficult to find people willing to ship to the UK). Especially if they reproduce Sindy furniture. It was always the best.

  1. This is really cool news! I've only recently renewed my interest in my old 80s Sindy dolls - the original Sindy is pretty different from Barbie, and I can definitely imagine she'd fill an empty spot in the market today.

    1. She's got all the nostalgia value without the negative press Barbie gets when it comes to dolls for younger kids. And more character than Steffi Love. She could do well! *fingers crossed*

Simply Cook Review

I kept seeing ads and deals for Simply Cook everywhere, so as there was a special offer on at OhMyDosh! Rewards (£3 for the box and £3.50 cashback) I figured I had nothing to lose by giving it a try. What Is It? Recipe kits packed into boxes which fit through your letterbox. The usual price is £9.99 for a kit of 4, with each one serving 2-4 people depending on your serving sizes. All you need to do is buy the fresh ingredients required and follow the instructions. Here is Simply Cook's own helpful diagram: Does It Work? For me, as the person just eating it, it was awesome. Everything tasted great - the mushroom penne in particular was so good I went back for seconds - and I liked that the sauces weren't as rich as Anthony would usually make them. For Anthony, who cooked them, they weren't as impressive. He complained that the food was bland and that it was actually quite a lot of faff, as Lidl didn't stock everything we needed which meant another trip ou
