I remember this packging so clearly.  Especially going downstairs in our Woolworths and a whole row being FULL of Sindy toys.  I used to fantasize about doing a 1 minute shopping dash down that row to get as much Sindy stuff as possible.  I was lucky - although my parents couldn't afford a lot of the toys they did treat me to a lot!  AND they made me the BEST Sindy dolls house ever made!
