Pedigree Sindy Pretty Pose 1975

Update May 13 Pretty Pose not so distinguishing features?

I’m now very unsure of my ID on this doll. She actually looks more like a Funtime ’74 or ’75 and I’m thinking her arms do not bend enough, and are not spindly enough to make her a Pretty Pose Sindy.

However, she doesn’t match the Petradolls website description of the next closest doll – the Funtime – either.

  • The description for the head does not match a Funtime because it is brunette and marked 033050X.
  • And the body doesn’t match a Funtime body either as it not marked OD or Hong Kong.
  • The legs don’t bend.

Her head matches the description for a 1975 Active Sindy, with the long brunette hair, high colour and the number 033050X.

So a bit of an enigma. I would be very interested to hear feedback from any longtime collectors – please comment if you have any information that would help.

Doll’s distinguishing features

  • Hard head.
  • Number marking: 033050X on back of head.
  • Bendable arms (with wires inside). Non-bendable legs.
  • High colour with quite strong blusher and red lip paint.
  • Shoulder length wavy thick hair.
  • Very long legs – this example comes up at 29cm tall.
  • Fingers and toes are very detailed.

This is a quick post to show off a doll that I’ve been told is a Pretty Pose Sindy from 1975 (since found she may not be that). She has a slightly sultry look despite her baby face.

Here she is wearing what appears to be a version of a 1975 outfit called ‘Pleasant Dreams’. The online Sindy Museum shows one manufactured by Mego
This one is very similar but it has long sleeves.

In my pile of ironing I found another little item made from similar fabric and added it to the eBay listing for this doll.

There is also a negligee made from a similar fabric in 1974. Notice the butterflies in the fabric design.

The (possibly) Pretty Pose Sindy doll is a super model. She looks great in this bright Red Raver outfit from 1985.

I also reshot several vintage hand made outfits using her as a model because they looked a bit frumpy on Mini Sindy (1965). Here’s Mini looking like Angela Merkel (who I’m sure is not frumpy by nature but doesn’t wear in a twin set that well).

However, Mini looks fetching in a bit of turquoise.

The (possibly) Pretty Pose Sindy would be quite rare as she was only made during 1975 and only sold in the UK. I bought her from a collector. I had no idea what price to sell her at so I decided to experiment with a reverse auction. She’s currently still for sale, although she’s such a good model I’ve been tempted to end the listing.

I would be interested to see your pictures of Pretty Pose. If you’d like to share your own Pretty Pose photos, please drop me a line.

Fingers and Toes

p.s forgot to mention the fingers and toes. They’re more detailed than later Sindy dolls with creases marked on the finger joints and little nails.
