1971 lovely lively

The First Lovely Lively 1971 Sindy has changed a lot, she can now bend her arms and knees and turn her head 360 degrees. Her head is no longer attached to her neck but sits on a neck knob that is attached to her body. This Sindy is called Gauntlet Sindy by collectors because of the gauntlet shaped underarms.
