Pedigree Sindy in 1974 and 1975

 
1974 was an important and innovative year for Sindy. It is the year that Sindy got her new look that was used until half way into the 80s and Pedigree's most popular Sindy ever: Active Sindy was also put on the market this year. The mechanism for this doll was so new that she wasn't ready for the pictures taken for the 1974 catalogue and box. A prototype was used in the photographs and consequently many collectors have been searching for that non-existent doll. Lovely Lively Sindy and Funtime Sindy got a new, slimmer look. The older models in stock were still sold but newly dressed. The older model Lovely Lively Sindy with the gauntlet arms was dressed the same as the new one, in Ship Ahoy or last years Fun Flares. The last Trendy girls were sold in a Sindy Apple outfit. In 1975 The Trendygirl and Gauntlet arm Sindy were no longer pictured in the catalogue.

Funtime Sindy 1974

The 1974 Funtime Sindy had a new head made from very hard vinyl and is marked 033050X, she has sewn-in lashes and a lot of blusher but still the same quality fragile hair and was made in blond only. She has a new slimmer body but is still marked O.D. MADE IN HONG KONG  and 033128X on the shoulders and 033127X on her bottom. The limbs are from very hard vinyl but the legs have a wire inside and can pose. She is 27cms tall. She is sold in a box picturing last years fatter Funtime.

 

 

Active sindy 1974

In 1974 The first Active Sindy that was made had a double twist waist, a double neck joint, riveted shoulder joints, ball joints at the wrists and bending elbows and knees but no bending ankles. Her head was marked 033050X and her body marked MADE IN HONG KONG. Saran hair was now used and this hair ages much better then the hair used between 1968 and 1973, even played with dolls can look like new once they are washed and styled. Sindy is 28cms tall and has her brunette, blond or auburn hair styled in a chignon with a purple ribbon.

Lovely lively 1974

In 1974 Lovely lively dolls had now lovely long saran hair. They are marked S678 on top of their heads and 033050X below the hairline. These Lovely Lively's  have rivets in their shoulders. I think that is why they are often called “Dutch” dolls, not because they were made in Holland ( which they weren't) but after the antique American dolls with pegs in their shoulders. Lovely Lively is marked MADE IN HONG KONG on her body, has a twist waist, a head on a ball joint, jointed knees and bendable elbows. Her hands can turn round completely. Her hair is loose in a flip, the colours are dark brunette, auburn and blond. She is 28cms tall

She has a double twist waist, a double neck joint, riveted shoulder joints, ball joints at the wrists and bending elbows and knees and bending ankles. Her head was marked 033050X and her body marked MADE IN HONG KONG.  Sindy is 28cms tall and has her brunette, blond or auburn hair styled
in a chignon with a purple ribbon.

Funtime Sindy from 1975

In 1975 the Funtime Sindy is almost the same as last years Funtime, only her markings have changed for this year, she is now marked Hong Kong on her lower back only and on her head she has the number 033055X. Her hair is now made from shiny saran which is very easy to style and she was made in blonde only. She is 28cms tall.

 

Pretty Pose Sindy 1975

In 1975 came the Pretty pose Sindy who was only sold in the UK and is rather hard to find. She resembles the Funtime Sindy but has wire inside her arms enabling her arms to bend and hold a pose.
