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.

Guide to Sindy Houses

As far as 1/6 scale doll houses go, Sindy's Super Home is fairly ubiquitous. It's a good size, it isn't made out of pink plastic, and you can pick one up on eBay for under £50. But the Super Home wasn't Sindy's only foray into property ownership. In fact she had numerous different houses, caravans, stables, and other buildings... 1970 Sindy's Town House Though this was advertised in the 1970 brochure, it doesn't seem to have ever made it into production. 1973 Sindy's House This one apparently made it into limited production, but was flimsy and was soon replaced. According to the Sindy Museum , it had four rooms, decorated as a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and lounge. You can see part of the house used for photos in the 1974 catalogue . 1974 Sindy's House Existing examples appear to have been competition wins, so it is unlikely this house was ever on general sale. You can read more about it HERE . 1975

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

It had blue and red lights, and appeared to be moving towards them. They watched for a few minutes and the next day reported the sighting to UK UFO. FM: " I was up really late and i needed to use the bathroom so i got up and my side of the bed is by the window, so i had a look out. i saw an object shaped like a typical space ship would look, but it had blue and red lights and appeared to be coming towards me. i watched it for a while and then left to use the bathroom and by the time i had returned (5 minutes later) the mysterious lights had almost disappeared into the distance.
