MECHANICAL TOY Filed May 9, 1933 EE112 EE 5 J/fornfy Patented Sept. 26, 1933 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 3 Claims.
My invention relates to toys, but more especially to mechanical toys, particularly those that embody figures to which movements are given by the rolling, drawing or pushing the toy along a floor.
My invention contemplates a wheeled toy which carries a figure that has arm and leg members and connections between a special wheel and said,
members, whereby, when said wheel is revolved,
said members will be distended and collapsed.
In the accompanying drawing I have illustrated one embodiment of my invention that includes a wheeled body or platform from which rises an upright to which the aforesaid arm and leg members are pivoted and are represented as belonging to a human body, the torso of which encloses said members and upright and is secured to the latter.
Referring to the drawing,
Figure 1 is a front elevation of the complet toy with the arm and leg members collapsed.
Figure 2 is a similar view but with the torso removed and the body or platform broken away.
Figure 3 is a view similar to Figure 2 but showing the arm and leg members distended.
Figure 4 is a section at the line 44 of Figure 1.
Figure 5 is a rear view of the structure shown at Figure 1.
Figure 6 is a segregated view in perspective of the means employed for causing and permitting the movements of the arm and leg members.
Similar numerals of reference will be used to denote like parts in the several figures of the drawing.
1 is'a platform or body, hereinafter referred to as the cart, to opposite sides of which are journaled wheels 2, and from the bottom of this cart depends a hanger 3 to which is journaled a 40 third or operating wheel 4.
Rising from the cart 1 is an upright 5 to which arm members 6 are pivoted, as at '7, and leg members 8 are pivoted, as at 9.
Extended inwardly from the pivotal points 7 are shoulders 10, and extended inwardly from the pivotal points 9 are shoulders 11.
Suitably guided to the upright is a vertically reciprocatory frame 12 whose ends 13 are at the top and are bent athwart the shoulders 10, the lower or closed end of this frame being bent, as at 14, and extending athwart the shoulders 11, so that it will be clear that when this frame is pulled downwardly said arm and leg members will be caused to distend, and when the frame is moved upwardly said members will drop by gravity to normal or collapsed position.
15 is a wire eccentrically connected at 16 to the wheel 4 and passing upwardly through the cart and hooked, as at 17, around the middle portion of the part 14, so that when the cart is wheeled on a floor with the wheel 4 contacting the latter, the wire 15 will'be moved up and down to actuate the frame 12 and effect the results above described.
The torso 18 carries a head 19 and is merely a skeleton frame that conceals the operative parts and carries out the resemblance to a human figure, and is open at the sides so as to permit free movements of the arm and leg members, and is secured at the back to the upright 5 in any suitable manner.
It will be evident that the construction herein described is exceedingly simple and not at all likely to get out of order, but it will also be evident that changes may be made, all within the range of ordinary mechanical skill, without departing from the spirit of my invention.
What is claimed is:
1. A toy comprising a wheel cart, arvertical support carried by said cart, arm and leg members pivoted to said support and having inwardly extending shoulders, a substantially U-shaped reciprocatory frame mounted on said support and having portions bent to engage said shoulders, an operating wheel journaled to said cart and an actuating member eccentrically pivoted to said wheel and connected to said frame.
2. A toy comprising a wheel cart, a vertical support carried by said cart, arm and leg members pivoted to said support and having inwardly extending shoulders, a substantially U-shaped frame mounted on said support, said frame having its bight portion and free ends bent at rightangles and extending in the same direction, said bent portions engaging the inwardly extending shoulders of the leg and arm members respectively, an operating wheel journaled to said cart and an actuating member eccentrically pivoted to said wheel and connected to said bight portion of the frame. a
3. A toycomprising a wheel cart, a vertical support carried by said cart, arm and leg members pivoted to said support and having inwardly extending shoulders, a substantially U-shaped reciprocatory frame mounted on said support, said frame having its free ends bent at rightangles and engaging said shoulders, an operating wheel journaled to said cart, and an actuating member eccentrically pivoted to said wheel and connected to said frame.
