SAMUEL HLASKELL, OF BROOKLYN, NEW YORK.
, Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented May a, was.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, SAMUEL HAsKnLL, a resident of Brooklyn, Kings County, State of New York, and a citizen of Russia, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Mechanical Dolls, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to improvements in mechanical toys, one of the objects being to provide'an improved mechanism adapted for use in connection with dolls designed to simulate the hula-hula dances. words, my improved device is arranged to vibrate the skirt of the dolls and at the same time tomove the eyes sidewise, the eyes being moved and the skirt vibrated by a mechanism common to both.
I will now proceed to describe my invention, in detail, the novel features of which I will point out in the appended claims, reference being had to the accompanying drawing, wherein Fig. 1 illustrates my improved device in elevation, a portion of a doll and skirt be ing illustrated in dotted lines as well as the gears.
Fig. 2 is a fragmentary detail view, the section being taken on a line corresponding to line 2-2 in Fig. 1;
Fig. 3 is a detail edge view of the motor mechanism, certain parts being broken off; and
Fig. 4 is a face view of the style of doll for which my device is intended.
Myimproved mechanism consists of a spring motor mechanism made up of a suitable frame 5 carrying a spring 6 which operates a shaft 7 carrying a gear 8 meshing with a smaller gear 9 carried by a shaft 10. Shaft 10 carries a relatively large gear 11 meshing with a smaller gear 12 on shaft 13. Shaft 13 carries an escapement wheel 14 coacting with an escapement pawl 15 in the usual manner. The pawl 15 carries a stem 16 carrying at its free end a transversely disposed rod 17. The pawl 15 is carried by a shaft or support 18 pivotally supported by frame 5. The ends of the rod 17 engage the flexible skirt 19 of the doll 20, or rather bear against the skirt. When the motor is in operation, the stem 16 will be vibrated and hence the skirt, through the rod 17, will be caused to vibrate, thereby simulating the movement of the hip during the dance.
A doll made in accordance with my in- In other vention will be provided with eyes 21 and 22 which are shiftable or movable sidewise to the right and left alternately. Each eye 21 and 22 will be pivotally supported by brackets 23 secured to the inner surface of the head portion 24 of the doll. In this instance, I have indicated the brackets as secured to the head by means of sealing wax. indicated by 25.. Each eye carries a pin 26 having a yoke 27. The yoke of pin 26 of eye 21 is engaged by a post member 28 of a fork 29. The yoke of pin 26 of eye 22 is engaged by a similar post member 30 of said fork 29. The fork 29 is carried by an arm 31, the hub 32 of which is pivotally supported by frame 5. The hub 32 also supports a pin 33 extending downwardly therefrom, said pin being disposed in the path of rotation of arm 34, 35, 36 and 37 forming a star wheel 38 carried by shaft 10. When the motor is operating, arm 31 will be moved in one direction bv the arms of the star-wheel 38 and in the opposite direction by a spring 39. Hence, the eyes 21 and 22 will be oscillated upon the brackets 23 to the right and left, thereby simulating a sidewise glance.
By means of the structure herein described, I produce a doll having a skirt which is vibrated to simulate dancing and also having eyes that are moved to simulate side glances simultaneously with the vibra tion of the skirt, the movement of the skirt and eyes being efl ected by a motor mechanism common to both. To wind the spring, shaft 7 is extended beyond the back of the figure and provided with a winding handle 39 Having described my invention what I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent 1s:-
1. In a mechanical toy, a body member, a flexible skirt carried thereby, movable eyes also carried by the body member, a motor mechanism, a vibratory arm adjacent the motor mechanism, means carried by the arm to operate said eyes, means actuated by the motor to vibrate said arm, and means actuated by the motor to vibrate said skirt.
2. In a mechanical toy, a body member, a flexible skirt carried thereby, eyes pivotally connected to the body member, a motor mechanism, a vibratory arm adjacent the motor mechanism, a fork carried by the arm at its upper end engaging said eyes and arranged to move them upon their pivots, a star wheel operated by the motor mechanism arranged to vibrate said arm, and means also operated by the motor mechanism to vibrate said skirt.
3. In combination with a body member, brackets secured to the body member, an eye pivotally mounted on each bracket, a yoke carried by each eye, a "fork, the members of which engage said yokes, a pivotal arm extending from said fork, a motor, and a star-wheel actuated thereby to move the arm upon its pivot to move said eyes upon their pivots.
i. In combination with a body member, brackets secured to the body member, an eye pivotally mounted on each bracket, a yoke carried by each eye, a fork, the members of which engage said yokes, a pivotal arm extending from said fork, a motor a star-wheel actuated thereby to move the arm. upon its pivot to move said eyes upon their pivots in one direction, and a spring to move the eyes in the opposite direction.
In testimony whereof I hereunto aflix my signature.
