Application filed Jul 23,

This invention relates to toys oand more particularly to a toy made of a single sheet of materialsuch as cardboard and foldable to represent various objects such asja wagon,

car, circus cage,'or the'like.

An object of the invention is to so cut and fold a single sheet of material that it may] represent objects such as specified above and may also represent a means whereby such object is moved, as, for instance, by somesort of draft animal at the front end.

A further object of the invention is to provide some movable part such as a top or cover, 1 movable to and fro, and a figure so related to such top or cover that it too moves back and Y forth as the cover is moved.

Details of the construction and mode of slitting and folding the sheet will be underand which, for. illustrative sent a circus wagon. t

Figure 1 is a side elevation of such a wagon; Figure 2 represents a top plan view; Figure 3 a section on line 3-8 of Figure 2;

purposes, repre- Figure 4 a section on line 44-of Figure 2 Figure 5 a top view with thecover thrown v V dotted linesin F igure 10. Where these arparts in line, the'fold is made backward or away from the planeofi the drawing. Where the arrow has its end or point adj acent the line of fold,


Figure 6 a side elevation with the the position shown in Figure 5; a

Figure 7 is a front elevation; m Figure 8 is an elevation of the rear right hand side portion showing the connection of the cover with the tongue which interlocks with. the side together; V

Figure 9 is a bottom view showing the interlocking portions of the bottom sections; and

Figure 10 is a View of the blank from which the toy is made, said figure showing in dotted lines the position of the folds and in double lines the position of the slits and mannerof slitting to form the various sections.

The manner of constructing the device may be best understood by reference to Figure 10 1' which shows the'blank properly shaped and upon which the various sections are indicated. These sections consist of a left side section 1,

a right side section 2, a front section 3, backportion to hold the sections 1929. I S eria1 Nb. 38 O,4 2; 1' j v v section 4 and bottom sections A, B, O and D.

The particular toy representsa circus wagon so that the side section lhas some drawings on it' of animals which maybe colored as I indicated at 6, the prolongations of the sides 'which are to represent 7 wheels will-remain in theplane of the sides; I j

In Figure l the wagon is shown as' being drawn by a figure somewhat, representing a goose, and thisieffect is produced byva portion 7 -of the blank, which is a prolongation of the right side section, the figure being indicated at 8. When the blank is-folded the part 8-is passed'through the slit in'the front section 31 A part 10 projecting below the p 'plane'ofthe bottom sections when folded and on a level with'the wheelsserves as a support for the figurerepresenting the draftanimal and'falso as a means to lock the partstogether.

The method of folding the blank is indicated by the'arrows which are adjacent the rows havetheir'butt ends adjacent the dotted it indicates that'the fold is u ward; For in- "st'ance, alongthedotted line 6 the two bottom sections are folded under. The sameis true of the foldalong the dotted lines 11.

lines 12, 13,114, 15, 16, 17 19 and '20fa's indipart 8 ispassed cated by -the arrows, the through-{the slot 9; Sections A and C are folded ifirst, then sections'B and D'ffolded under them and the tongue 21 ?of section B passed through the slots 22 of section D, as

indi'catedin Figure-9. v

Inorder to form a top or cover, the left side lis continued butis cutfat 23 along the edge-where it joins the side section, leaving a portion integral with the side section which forms a tongue '24. The tongue 24 is bent back 1' touching :the 1 dotted Jiine, ..:anditheifigureiis passed thlnughi ac-slot128i limthettop section. Since the top section pivots about the line 19 and since the portion carrying' the fi'gure pivots about thelpoint 27 ,the re. will be a relative movement bettveenthfigure and "the top when the topiisvmovedaibetweemopen 1- andQClQsed; positions. lln ordenthatthe struca turle. may be proprlyheldtogethenthe.tongue 24::isipr0vi'ded with a part 29Lwhich inter-locks I V with. slitsi 130 :in' the right side ,sectiompthis being also'clea'rly" shown inFigure SV Toisimulateav driver aniintegralportion of ithe lfront section 3: is bent back 'at lfi fland shaped, as. shown at 3 1.
