Sindy’s 50th Anniversary

Did you know that 2013 is Sindy’s 50th Anniversary? To celebrate we, at the Museum of Childhood, have filled a display case in the museum with Sindy related artefacts from our collection.

The Sindy display case

 

Taking pride of place within the case is Sindy’s townhouse. This large, three-storey house, complete with roof terrace, spiral staircase and lift, is made of cardboard and plastic and was completely dismantled. Without any instructions to follow, it took our Collections Team some time to build!       

All the pieces!

The large amount of Sindy furniture in the collection has come in useful when furnishing the house. Check out Sindy’s collection of clothing in her bedroom.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

She even has a car.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And a horse!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Many of these artefacts would normally be packed away in storage, so do take the opportunity to come and visit the Museum of Childhood to see this lovely collection, or visit National Trust Collections online at: http://www.nationaltrustcollections.org.uk/ to browse our collection of Sindy artefacts from the comfort of your home!
