Grown Up Tammy

Name: Grown Up Tammy

Made by and When: Ideal Toys, 1965

Material: Vinyl

Marks: 1965/Ideal/7-12 (on right hip)

Height: 12 inches

Hair/Eyes/Mouth: Brown rooted hair/brown side-glancing eyes/painted red lips

Clothes: White-trimmed turquoise romper, white vinyl shoes

Other: Ideal created this slender Tammy that could wear some of Barbie’s clothes. The original Tammy (no Black version exists) had a fuller teen-age-type body and could not share Barbie’s clothes. Another Black Tammy (not shown) has a slender, soft vinyl, poseable body and is often referred to as Posable Tammy. The posable version wears a nautical two-piece fashion. Both Black versions are very hard to find.
