Doll-A-Day 249: Tammy's Brother Ted

  No, not my brother. I don't have one. Today's doll is Ted by Ideal.

Ted was part of the Tammy Family of dolls, made by Ideal from 1962 to 1967.

Ted himself was introduced in 1964.

He's 12 1/2" tall, as Tammy and her family were on a slightly larger scale than Barbie and friends, and slightly smaller than the Littlechap family.


It's really hard to tell Ted from Tammy's boyfriend Bud. Bud was introduced in 1965, wearing the same outfit as Ted, and has a very similar face.

Ted had to share fashions with Dad, and boyfriend Bud.They had to have clothes though, since they were called 'the dolls you love to dress'. Wouldn't do much good to love to dress them if they didn't have any clothes...
Tammy and Pepper were made longer, and in more different editions than the rest of the family and friends,so Dad, Mom, brothers Ted and Pete, and boyfriend Bud are harder to find. Bud is the hardest to find. 

I apologize for the abbreviated post, but I am still feeling 'under the weather'.(Whatever that means!)
  Check in tomorrow for another doll.

    1. I don't think I knew about him. I thought they were finished with Ted before they got to the Pos'n dolls.Thanks.
