1980 Styling Sindy- Styling Sindy is a basic doll with extra long hair, reaching over her middle. Her head is marked 2 GEN/ 1077  and 033055X.

1981 and 1982 Basic Sindy

The 1981 and 1982 Basic Sindy isn't much different from last years but the markings have changed. Sindy is now marked Sindy (in a block) and 033055X beneath it. Her body and hairstyle remain the same. Her make-up is still soft too, pink or pale orange lips.


From 1982 onwards all Sindy dolls are marked Sindy on their heads. Sindy was made in Hong Kong but also in Great Brittain and in China. Sometimes the same issues were made in different places and therefore there are many differences and variations to be found.

The Hong Kong dolls are marked as such and have the smaller, harder faces with the sad eyes. These dolls are often a little smaller then her British sisters.

The British and China made dolls are unmarked on their bodies but have Sindy 033055X on their heads. These heads are softer and slightly bigger. Small differences in outfits and boxes are interesting to NRFB collectors.
