Toy franchises including Merrythought Bear, Meccano, Action Man and Hornby Dublo trains are back, in stamp form.

“The heyday of the British toy industry remains a magical era, one that shaped childhoods across the generations,” reads a statement from Royal Mail. “And with many of the best-loved toys from the past still with us, or perhaps relaunched after temporary absences, the children of today can still have fun with some of the world’s most iconic toys.”

Royal Mail spokesperson Philip Parker added: “British toy makers enjoyed a reputation for quality and innovation, and these nostalgic stamps celebrate ten wonderful toys that have endured through the decades.”

The stamps will be available to purchase online and in over 7,000 post offices across the UK from August 22nd.

Tesco to bring back classic doll Sindy – with a 21st century makeover

13th September 2016

Sindy, one of Britain’s most iconic toys, is making a comeback after being given a 21st century makeover by Tesco.

The glamorous doll has been revamped exclusively by Tesco which has made her seven inches taller with a fresh new look.

Sindy was, for many years, the UK’s best-selling toy delighting generations across the world after being launched in the early 1960s.

Sindy’s fashionable clothes, popular accessories and playsets made her an iconic doll and 150 million were sold worldwide.

Tesco believes she can once again become a British favourite toy.

Tesco head toy buyer Dawn Lavalette explained:

“Sindy stood out from other dolls and her captivating, angelic look made her popular all over the world.

Now we’ve restored her beautiful and unique look and worked with our own top fashion designers to come up with a dazzling new range of clothes.

We also think that many mums out there who were fans of the original doll themselves will secretly want one too.”

Besides her new 18 inch height Sindy will have a new, refreshed look with a set of 11 on-trend outfits for both day and nightwear, created by Tesco’s own top fashion designers.

The range will also include eight pairs of shoes including trainers, boots and sandals plus accessories for her hair and jewellery.

In addition, she will also have three friends – Zoe, Kate and Laura.

Dawn Lavalette added:

“This is just the start of the Sindy revival and next year we will have a whole range of exciting additions for customers to add to their collection including more playsets and stylish outfits.”
