Original Tammy Doll
In 1962 Ideal Toy Corporation introduced the Tammy doll to compete with Barbie. She was made to look more like a 16 year old teenager.
The original Tammy wore a white trimmed, turquoise play suit and white sneakers. She had a plastic ankle gripper stand and a pamphlet. Her box was white with drawings of Tammy in various outfits or fuchsia with an illustration of Tammy. Tammy came in various hair colours and styles from platinum blonde, medium blonde, toscan, reddish brown, brown and black. She is approximately 12" tall, straight legged with vinyl head and arms, plastic legs and torso. Her markings are Ideal Toy Corp. BS-12 on head; Ideal Toy Corp BS-12 on back with a single digit number underneath.
