Here is my beautiful new Starlight Sindy. Starlight was released in 1985 with the traditional face and then again in 1986 with a slightly different style jumpsuit! I think she is so cute! The shiny material didn't show up well on the camera?
On the box she has a side pony tail with crimped hair much like the 1985 versions, however the finished doll just had loose curls with no ponytail (I put my girls in a ponytail)

The Starlights together, you can see how dramatically they changed Sindy in 1986.
City Girl Sindy was one of the last Sindy's I remember getting. Me and my sister got one each on the same day. There are 2 versions of this doll the other being dressed in pink & purple which my sister has. I like these Hasbro Sindy's but they where to only last 2 years before she changed again and looked far to much like a cheap Barbie!
Another 85 fashion that was re-used in 86. This is the 86 version mint from the card. Its quite a cool fashion but not one I had as a kid. I thought of Marie as soon as I got it last year but never got around to putting it on her. This curly haired Marie is Royal Wedding Marie
This was one of the last Sindy fashions I remember getting as a kid. I have wanted it for ages and when it showed up on on e-bay at a BIN at £15 I snapped it up. This is the 1986 version and is mint from the card.
This outfit always reminds me of The Sound of Music!

Prior to the new release of dolls, you can make out Barbie to the right and Jem and Golden Girl on the left both of which I had as a kid. *Dreams of getting a time machine*
And the shelves updated with the new 86 girls Jazzdance and Mark .
By this period Toy N Hobby was the big store in my home town so there was a lot more 86 dolls to chose from. I remember that Saturday very well visiting Toy N Hobby to see the new face Sindy. Me and my sister nearly died of heart failure!
