Swimsuit Special – Monte Carlo Sindy 1994

Well, I finally identified my Brunette Sindy, Sunny. I shouldn’t really have needed to identify her as I actually bought her from new, but my memory is rubbish and it was nearly twenty years ago. I thought she might have come in the dress I photographed her in last time I posted about her, but I must have bought this around the same time and got mixed up.

Recently I saw an eBay listing for Monte Carlo Sindy and realised that her face is identical to my doll’s, and I also recognised the bikini from my loose clothes box. I put two and two together – at last

    Wow! i love brunettes Sindys… they are so rare… and you have her almost in pristine condition… another reason to hate you..LOL. She is definetively not the “plain and simple” type, thatΒ΄s for sure. Love her bikini!

      Be nice, Chico – and I will leave her to you in my will πŸ™‚

      She’s certainly not subtle, but I just love her hair (which is two-tone, really nicely done) and her green eyes. What a shame they didn’t make more Sindys with different colouring and skin tones, I’d love to have seen her as a redhead but I don’t think they did any 😦

    Wow! She’s really pretty and similar to Courtney Pet Pals.

      Hi Mangusta πŸ™‚ yes, Sindy quite often gets compared to Skipper and I can certainly see what you mean with this one. Love Pet Pals Courtney, by the way, I have her round here somewhere

        Me too πŸ™‚ A t least a head, I’m not sure about a body. I have 3 Skippers so far, all with the same mold:

        Cool Crimp and Cool Tops, I think? Skipper is a relatively new branch of my collection, I still have a lot to learn. I love these big-eyed versions, they’re my favourite!

    She is gorgeous and I love her Bikini. I have the doll, but that Baikini eluded me so far.

      Hi Andrea πŸ™‚ I think I know why! I’ve had this doll from new so she’s only ever been redressed or displayed, never played with roughly. As you might be able to see on these photos, her flimsy swimsuit has already started to rip – it seems to be made of felt and it’s very tight round her waist. I’d guess that many of these swimsuits just disintegrated when played with.
