Tammy



A juggernaut for Barbie, Tammy was made by Ideal Toy Corp in 1962 to 1966. In her short production she became a loved companion for boys and girls alike.

Tammy was 12'' tall, she had a sister, Pepper and a brother Pete, along with a set of parents, a boyfriend and a best friend Patti who was only 9'' tall.

Although Tammy had a teen body style that appealed to many mother who weren't enamored with Barbie's more adult curves, she never approached the sales that Barbie had. Tammy's inability to adapt by having long hair, twisting waist and lush eyelashes ended her popularity after 3+ short years. She always had painted features and rooted hair. Sold separately was a extensive wardrobe and other accessories such as my case.


No other company marketed Tammy. C&G Design.

Never even heard of a Tammy. She must've been very short lived. Too bad as she is pretty.

She was short lived, Barbie is made by Matel, Ideal is as big of a company. Tammy is pretty, too little of her around.
I have a scrimmage today. Ugh.

I have seen that case before!
I happen to have my speakers on and heard the music... Soooo sorry....

Dawn said...

Skeeter, sounds like you like my music, Jack of all trades panics when he doesn't hear it here in the familyroom....with the tv on....

Skeeter said...

I just noticed where you mention you have added the music. Duh, now I know why I hear music this morning. I thought maybe I was having a major hangover from our weekend of patying in Atlanta... lol....

I am looking around the office and I dont see one pink thing! So dont know if I could partake in the pink Saturday thing...

Ha, I just took a stroll through the house, (outside the office doors) and found tons of floral type things with pink in them! Reckon I could do posting on Pink Saturday afterall.... What ya say Tina?

I never had a Barbie! Okay, you can all feel sorry for me. Truth is though, I was in High School by the time they came out. So my interst was more in boys than dolls. LOL

She is cute and I think I also have seen the case before. Is it from your childhood or did you get her at a second hand store? But I do not remember Tammy and I wonder why, with 4 girls? LOL Answer....too many dolls kicking around!!!

Dawn said...

Skeeter, I'm the same way.....but I found ALOT of pink after joining. I was surprised how much pink.
