Vintage Pedigree Sindy Doll furniture – ‘Housework’, ‘Washday’ & 'Vacuum Cleaner’ sets, from early 1980's. Amazingly complete, used, un-boxed, in very good condition. 1 Careful owner- me!
Sindy was always house proud in the 80’s! Who could blame her with all these fabulous tools and gadgets!
Housework set includes:

White/blue upright hoover, with extension cord and 2 attachments (for those hard to reach areas). Yellow/blue swing top waste bin. Yellow/blue handled water bucket. Red long handle broom, long handle mop (sponge still intact, though has seen use) and matching small red dustpan and hand brush. Note on Condition – some discolouration to the white hoover due to age (see photos), but it still tilts and the cord/attachments can be put on/off when the hoover is upright. It was never a ‘working’ hoover though. Everything else is in very good condition.

Washday set includes:

Yellow/white collapsible rotary washing line, with 6 red pegs. Yellow collapsible ironing board, with sponge top and red/black iron. Red/white check apron Yellow clothes basket, with a number of red pegs which are a different style from the washing line pegs. Note on Condition – slight tear to the apron (see photo), everything else is in very good condition.

Vacuum Cleaner (possibly the original ‘bagless’ hoover) includes:

Green vacuum cleaner, with a small clear section that would store any dirt when the vacuum worked and can be emptied by lifting off the vacuum. Long clear curved, flexible hose that is detachable, with shorter straight clear hose, complete with green handle and 2 different green end attachments. White/Brown ‘poofy’ type battery holder, which the vacuum plugged into via the white cable (see close up photos). Batteries not included. Note on Condition – Sadly the vacuum doesn’t work anymore (I tried it with 2 new batteries). It used to, and I had a lot of fun with this. I can’t see any sign of battery corrosion or loose connections so you might be able to fix it. Overall I think this is in very good condition (with all attachments).

A little background - I've been emptying my Mum and Dad's attic which is a non-smoking home, (where my Sindy collection, has been stored since 1990, and before that in my Sindy ‘Super Home’ within a built in wardrobe, where I played with all my Sindy stuff collected from 1979-1985), I loved playing with these sets, as it felt like I was grown up and keeping my own house tidy! However it's time to let my large Sindy collection go to a collector, or for another generation to enjoy. I've sorted and cleaned everything and I think this set is in very good condition for being 30+ years old, well used and loved, by me.

Postage - I'm going to re-use shoe boxes etc where possible and insert packing paper to package the items safely and to keep the costs low. The postage price is based on UK mainland Royal Mail small parcel, 2 nd class ‘signed for’ (at the new lower price for small parcels form 20th Oct14) , or I can do ‘Collect +’ if you like. Also, if you're outside mainland UK please message me for a revised p&p price.

As I mentioned above, I have a large Sindy collection, so look out for future listings.

Finally , if you've got any questions please ask? Good luck and thanks for viewing my listing.
