By Sophie Law For Mailonline. By day, Tristan Pineiro, 47, who lives in London , spends his days as a high-flying PR executive which takes him all over the world.

I still have the first doll my grandma bought me – a brunette Sindy ballerina – and for me, she is the Queen. She’s currently in the kitchen sitting on the shoulders of an Action Man.

In addition, the very popular ‘Active’ body type was redesigned several times, primarily to fix design flaws which tended to result in broken dolls the ‘Basic’ body type is not discussed.
These differences in face paint and body type can be used to date Active body dolls from this era. Dolls from the late 70s and early 80s tended to have paler face paint, and paler lips in particular, than the mids and mids dolls. The mids dolls tended to have a wider apple-cheeked face. The heads were made from a very hard plastic, whereas the later heads were much softer and more malleable.
Many dolls may be found with melt marks, typically at the shoulders and hips. These marks are caused by a chemical reaction between Sindy’s hard plastic torso and her soft vinyl arms and legs. Acetone slowly leaches from the vinyl and melts the hard plastic.

I will just give a brief overview of how she came to be and her first few years.

The first issue of Paul had painted hair but the second one had rooted brown hair in a Beatle cut.

I can still recall the painful desperation of trying to get my mum up to the toy department in Woolworths to look at clothes.
