18 inch Sindy

The Complete Guide To 18 Inch Sindy Doll

Continuing in a long line of marketing moves designed to not quite please anybody, Pedigree Toys licensed the Sindy name to Tesco for a '21st Century Makeover'. The new 18" Sindy doll hit Tesco stores on September 5th 2016, priced at £19.95. Tesco's head toy buyer, Dawn Lavette, said:

"Sindy stood out from other dolls and her captivating, angelic look made her popular all over the world. Now we’ve restored her beautiful and unique look and worked with our own top fashion designers to come up with a dazzling new range of clothes. We also think that many mums out there who were fans of the original doll themselves will secretly want one too. This is just the start of the Sindy revival and next year we will have a whole range of exciting additions for customers to add to their collection including more playsets and stylish outfits."

This was probably over optimistic, especially as the dolls don't look a thing like the originals...

Still, in addition to gaining seven inches and losing a few years, Sindy picked up a few new friends for the relaunch - from left to right we have Zoe, Kate, and Laura.

To be fair to Tesco, they really put their money where their mouth is when it came to relaunch. Sindy had a big range of outfits and accessories available, up to and including a new doll house. This is my attempt at collating all of that before the demise of Tesco Direct makes it even harder to dig up the relevant info.

The dolls have plastic limbs and a soft body. The measurements are: length - 46cm; chest - 26.5cm; waist - 25cm; feet - 6.4cm x 3.4cm.

These mini dolls have a fully plastic body, and from the second wave onwards have been painted with side glancing eyes which really highlights the similarities in the head sculpt to the original Pedigree Sindy dolls.

British Food

A/N: On a previous blog wrote a whole series of posts on British life, explained for American fiction writers. This week I'm reposting the entry explaining British cuisine... Britain is world renowned for its stodgy, uninspiring cuisine. (Which should explain the deep suspicion Britons have of most foreign cuisine, unless it's been suitably adapted for the British palette.) BBC sitcom Goodness Gracious Me explains it best via the 'going for an English' sketch - a play on the popular British past time of 'going for an Indian (i.e. curry)'. " What's the blandest thing on the menu? " asks one character, later encouraging another, " Just have something a little bland, huh? Waiter, what have you got that is not totally tasteless? " Because, the truth is that traditional British fare is far from a taste sensation for those who haven't been raised on the stuff. Still, read on, and you can judge for yourself...

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
