Pippa Dolls

Post by Sister Suze » Tue Nov 30, 2004 9:40 pm

I didn't much care for Cindy (yeah, it used to be spelt with a "C"!) dolls, but I did love Pippa dolls...
...they were diddy little tiny dolls, I suppose a bit like those Bratz you can buy nowadays, but Pippa wasn't a scally like them, she was just cute.

Yes I remember Pippa. She was pocket sized, so you could take her to school quite happily. And she had lovely long blond hair. I only had one Cindy and one Pippa doll and they were both better than Barbie.

I had a Pippa doll too. She had friends too. I had Marie and Britt. (I too had a Cindy, the brunette variety)

I had pippa dolls - I had forgotten all about them until now! I can remember my sister having a Cindy - but I had a Tressy doll - the one with the wind in and out hair - does anyone remember them??

Sindy

Post by max31268 » Fri Dec 03, 2004 11:07 am

My dad bought me Sindy for Christmas 1978. She looked unnervingly like Margaret Thatcher. From recent research she was called 'Funtime Sindy' with a brown dress. He also bought a white and gold wardrobe, and due to the unavailability of the Dressing table, a sideboard. I remember spending all my pocket money on a fetching blue and white coat and a Sindy toilet. Last year I bought a brunette Sindy (proper Sindy, not barbie lookalike) to go in my Sindy Mini Cooper. sad.

How sad am I?

Last year I spent hours on the Pippa website. I do have a life really! I had a Dancing Pippa, around 1973, with a red dress. If you moved her arm, her leg would move. I also saved up for Princess Pippa with really long hair and also Pippa's Pony, which wasn't very good.
I also had a doll called Tina, who was the same size with ginger hair, but was a fake from America. Gutted - after all these years. :cry:
