If you’re into vintage dolls then suerly you know Pedigree’s Sindy. I’m more of a Hasbro Sindy fan, but, never the less, I admire the old 60s and 70s Sindy. A few days ago I saw an article about the new Sindy doll that i knew would come out in 2013 and that will now be produced by Tonner!
The first doll will be Trendy Girl Sindy. Can’t wait to see her!
Here’s a french commercial that I like very much.
Here’s the official email from Tonner.
“Bulldog Licensing signs Tonner Doll Company to produce a replica Sindy doll.
The popular Sindy dolls from the ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s are set to return in spring 2013.
Robert Tonner and the Tonner Doll Company will produce a replica Sindy doll for the collectors market, Bulldog Licensing has announced.
The British doll first launched in 1963 and went on to sell over 150 million units worldwide. The Sindy brand is still popular today, with classic dolls selling for as much as £1,500 on eBay, Top Shop featuring Sindy in its blogs and footwear brand Irregular Choice using Sindy in its 2012 Lookbook.
Tonner will be recreating the 1972 Trendy Girl Sindy and develop original and modern clothing styles to accompany the doll.
“We are really looking forward to bringing Sindy into the Tonner fold,” said Robert Tonner. “As a huge doll collector myself, it is quite a dream come true to be able to work with such an iconic name in the world of collectibles such as Sindy.”
Bulldog MD Rob Corney added: “We are delighted to have brought a market leader such as Robert Tonner on board for a programme that is growing rapidly. Sindy is big news at present and this is being reflected in the huge amounts of interest we are dealing with from the licensing community.”
Sindy celebrates her 50th birthday next spring.”
