cs.V cAsHo'rY TOY VEHICLE Filed Nov. 30, 1925 Patented Feb. 15, 1927.

fToY VEHICLE.

ppliation IedjNQvember 20,4925".-Y SerialNo. 7.2,l6-2f This inventionf relates to toy vehicles and in particular ,to one adapted to be used by a child for the purposesl of coastingand general amusement. r i A.A particular object ofthe invention is to provide a vehicle, the bodyof which will be supported in resilient relation with the wheel carrying membersvthereoffso thata child mountedfuponthe vehicle can .jog up and downl at the same time thatrithetvehicle is coasting. j l r l l Av further object o f the invention. is to provide a vehicle upon which the child can stand and which will 'bejjso `constructed that the parts thereof will respond to any movement in a vertical direction of the childs body so that the vehicle body itself will move up and down to provide amustment for the child.

Referring to the drawings wherein I have shown a preferred embodiment of my in-.

vention, Y I Flgure 1 1s a view of a Vehicle 1n side elevation having mounted thereon a child,

the position of the vehicle being sho-wn in outline when there is imparted thereto a jogging motion.

Figure 2 is a view in front elevation of the vehicle as seen in Figure 1.

` Figure 3 is an enlarged, fragmentary view o-f the lowerportion of the vehicle showing the roller holding members and method of attaching the same to the post members of the body, and

Figure 1 is a side View of the structure shown in Figure 3, the protective covering thereof being shown in section to illustrate the manner in which the roller carrying member is connected to the post member of the vehicle body. I

Referring to the drawings in detail, 5 indicates the vehicle platform upon which the child stands. This platform is held between two post members 6, which are supported in spaced relation with the lground through Y the medium of the leaf springs 7, the ends of the leaf springs 7 being secured to the lower end of the post members 6 as at 8 and having their outer ends secured vas at 9 tothe roller carrying legs 10, the rollers 11 being suitably pivoted in the lower ends of said legs 10. The post members 6 adjacent their lower ends are provided with staples 12 which project beyond the sides of said postl members and are enga-ged by the eyes 13 formed in the brackets 14C which are secured tothegiupp'er endsgof the ,legifineinbers 10; This connection provides apivotal movement 'for `the-legs v.10.relatively jto the post-,members 21nd it' 'is evident` that adownward pressure on the post Gwill Cause throughwthe mediumof the leafqspringsff, axspreadi-ng apart .of-the' legsilO, with a' resulting depression ,of the-posts and the,platformr 5 which @Unneaijssadwrstsi i 1 A Therefore; Chill Standing (Ori. the-plat form Sand gripping Vhandle portions 15 i jumping up 'and down 9.1.1. the Platform @will Cause the. platform .15am posts-6 .-tOf ,have a bouncing movement but in bouncing upV and down, the motion of the body of the vehicle will be taken up by the spreading of the legs l0l and it is evident that the child can means provided for maintaining rthe wheel carryingv legs 10 in angular position.

It is evident therefore, that I have provided a Ycoasting toy for use by children and upon which they can stand during coasting and which they can jog up and down to pro-v vide amusement,` it being evident, of course,

that the child 'can rock forward or rearwardly without danger of the vehicle upsetting due to the fact that the forward orrearsov Y ward rocking movement causes vthe legs to Y spread inasmuch as the lower end of the post would move either forward or backward depending upon which way the child leaned and would push onek of the legs 10 in the same direction, thereby increasing the base areal of the vehicle and preventing its overturning.

Also I htve provided a substantial toy which can be manufactured cheaply, will withstandrough usage and will not get out of order easily. Y

It is to be understood that changes may be made, such for instance, as shortening the post members to provide a short handley andusing the base 5 for a seat instead of fora platform,` upon which the child can stand 'andany other changes Which Will fall WithinY ciated With' said post members, rolle on the scope of the appended claims.

`Having described my invention, what I claim is r-f l. A toy vehicle comprising a body portion, a ground engaging portion, and means connecting said body `portion and f said ground engaging portion whereby said body portion can have a jogging movement relatively to said ground engaging portion, and

f Va cover arranged to conceal the point of connection of the body and the ground engaging portion.

2. A toy'vehicle comprising a platform upon which a child is adapted to stand, legV members associated With said platform and a plurality of spring members interposed between said legs and said platform Where- .f by a relative movement between the tWo can be had, and meansV for limiting the movement of the leg members.

' 3. A toy vehicle comprising avplurallty of post members a platform connecting said post members, leg members` pvotally assosaid leg members and a resilient conne tion between said post members and sal leg members whereby the platform can have a movement toward and away from said leg r members, and a shield for covering the pivot points of the legs and limiting the movement of the platform downwardly., Y

4. A toy vehicle comprising post vmembers, the upper ends of which are formed to provide handles, a platform connecting said post members,leg members pvotally associated with said post members and carrying Wheels at their lower ends, springmembers interposed betweenv said' leg members and said post members and coverings on said post members adapted to cover the pivoted portions of said leg members. Y V i In testimony whereof I ailix my signature.
