The photos below show three dolls by Ideal – left to right they are Glamour Misty, Pos’n Misty and the later version of Pos’n Tammy, called Grown Up Pos’n Tammy by collectors.
Glamour Misty is a regular Misty doll with platinum blonde hair, who was sold in a set with special markers to color her hair. She has straight (non-bendable) legs.
Pos’n Misty has soft vinyl legs wired for posability. All versions of Misty have the same torso and wired, posable arms.
“Grown Up” Pos’n Tammy has the same arms, too, but a different torso than the Mistys, with a smaller bust. She has the same flexible, wired legs as the Pos’n Misty. Her head mold is different also.
There was also a “Grown Up” Tammy (not shown) who had straight legs like the regular Misty and Glamour Misty dolls. Because the “Grown Up” dolls are much slimmer than the earlier versions of Tammy, most Tammy fashions don’t fit them well.
