Lately I have been buying Misty dolls by Ideal (1965-67), and a few that I bought and others I see on eBay are Misty heads with grown-up Tammy bodies. FYI for those selling the dolls, to be up front about it -- one seller did not like my complaint. But I have FYI-ed others so they are up front about it, and everything is OK with the buyer.
If nude pics are taken and displayed, it is easier to see -- Tammy necks are wider, their feet are less arched, waists bigger, busts smaller. Tammy bodies have T-12 on their right buttock, while Misty bodies have M-12 (so does Samantha and Super Queen dolls).
But it helps to put this in the text. One doll's seller put the nude pix at the end, so I did not see clearly that the body was not right and I was not expecting it, so I missed it.
I was reconciled to my 2 dolls, since I love all my dolls, no matter the condition; they are all unique.
But I wonder what goes on? I presume that there is someplace to buy doll bodies and heads in bulk and put them together as you feel like it; some of my poorer-grade Mistys look cobbled together. I would not mind having access to heads and bodies. I would like to try re-rooting hair on a hairless doll, just to experiment. I won't take hair out of a doll, but would try with one with bald areas.
I have three doll that I do not know how to identify or how to determine the value. Any help would be appreciated.
