Did you know that Sindy became such an icon in such a short space of the time, that exactly one year after her launch she was advertising carpet? These two adverts are from Ideal Home Magazine September 1964 edition. And yes she's selling carpet - no you say - she can't be - not our Sindy! But when you think about it, fitted carpet was a luxury in the 1960s, so who better than Sindy to promote luxury. We could give you a whole essay on why celebrity advertising is so important in marketing, but we think you'd rather just see the pictures of Sindy in her first outfits with some of her first accessories.
