Sindy in the sixties at the Museum of Childhood

Sindy in the Sixties

Sindy, the British alternative to the Barbie doll, was launched in 1963 and her role in the 'Swinging London' of the period is celebrated in the display Sindy in the Sixties, taking place at the Museum of Childhood, Bethnal Green, London. 

It's only a small display – taking just one case – but it's filled with over 70 objects including original 60s dolls featuring boyfriend Paul and friends Mitzi and Vicki as well as Sindy herself. There's also furniture, outfits from her extensive wardrobe and accessories. If you are a Sindy fan and in the area, it's well worth popping in. The display is on until 18 January.

    we went to see it the other day. It might only be one case, but if you love the 60s it is worth the trip. Just made me feel a bit sad about how Brit girls just get Barbie now
