The legs 31' may be formed with tongues 38 projecting through the openings 28 and bent back against th underside of the .top wall 26 .of the base H for fixing the chair to the base.

The body l may be made of stamped sheet metal. It may be made of two parts attached together along a vertical plane passing through the middle of the body. The two parts are hollow and substantially symmetrical. One of the parts may be formed with a plurality of holes or slots 46 to receive tongues 41 extending from the other body part, at the split, said tongues being bent over to attach the two parts together in accordance with the .usual practice in attaching together hollow stamped sheet .metal toy parts.

The body l5 may be attached to the .chair in any suitable manner and the .figure appears to be sitting on the chair. The body comprises a trunk portion 42 and legs 43 and is .formed with an open neck portion 1:2. The legs may project beneath the table and include shoe simulating portions 48 which may .contact .the top of the base I]. verse horizontal pivot pin 47 which may pass through suitable openings in the body or may be fixed to the body .in any-suitable manner.

The head simulating member 1.6 is hollow and may comprise two parts attached together many suitable manner. The head 1.6 includes a .neck 58 which projects through the neck-opening M. The ,pivot .pin 4.! passes through openings in the neck 48 so that the head is pivoted to the body for oscillation. Attached .to the inner side of the front of the body, as by rivet 49 :is a leaf spring 53,, which contacts the underside or the rear of the neck A8 and tends .to tilt the head forwardly \or in a clockwise -.direction .looking at Fig. .1 of the drawing, to keep the head .in upright position. The front .of the neck contacts the front edge 52 of the neck opening to limit movement .of the head to upright .position.

The right .arm simulating portion .1 .1 .may fixed to the body in any suitable manner. :It comprises a hollow metal :shell WhifihiiS inclined downwardly and forwardly. The .body :is termed with an opening .54 addacent the lower end of member 47. Iihe lower end of member $11 is open. .Said member H has :an outer wall Illa, whichcarries-adiacentitsxlowertendxadownwardly and forwardly inclined pivot min :55, .10- cated in a vertical plane parallel -.to1the..f1tont or rear legs of the'tabl :42. -Member -.I-! sis formed with-a slot l l'bto permitiorearmrmember lfl'to swing upwardly. The forearm tmember utB roomprises 1a hollow :tube having extension ';5.6"..pivote.d :to the pivot pin 55, therarrangementfbeing such that as the -.forearm simulating 'member swings upwardly, its "forward :end will move upwardly and toward the vertical mid section of the body 'to 'a 'proint'in front of :the mouth 15a of the'head Extending from the forward end hi the ."foreaiu'n:simulating inember IBis a hand simulat- -ing member tiflpwhich is iixedto theglass simulating member in anysuita'ble manner. The member ilii is made ofitransparent' material, such as glas'sfor syntheticplas'ti'cs.

The body I5 carries at the neck, .a transccover 32ml which may be fitted thereon in any suitable manner, such as by friction, and is formedwith an opening 59 located adjacent the front of the rim of said cover. The band simulating member 51 may be pressed around the lower end of the glass. Said glass 20 is furthermore formed with an opening 60 adjacent its lower end communicating with the interior of the hollowhand siumilating member 51.

Means are proyided to support the glass 20 when the glass is in its lowermost position as shown in Fig. 1 of the drawing. To this end, there is piloted to the pin 35, a lever 5 I. Pivoted to an intermediate portion of the lever 6| as at 62, is a rod 63, passing upwardly through the opening 533 .in the table top. Supported at the upper end of the rod 63 and above the table top, "is a disc '64 on which the glass 20 may rest when said glass is in its lowermost position, as shown in Fig. 1. Attached to the underside of the table .in any suitable .manner is one endof a leaf spring 66 .contactmg the underside -.of the lever 6.] and biasing .saidlever upwardly toswing ina saunter- .clo,clcwise .di-rectionlooking .at Fig. 2 of thedraw ing. Ill-he spring =66 may be attached to the innderside of the table top 3.0 by means .of .a riret ,6] min .any other .suitable manner. When the glass comes .down its weight will depress the lever .81 against tension .of spring 55, thereby lowering said lever to theposition ofFig. 2.

Pivoted to the outer .end of lever .61, as .at .68 is a vertical rod 69. It will be noted that the lever BI is inclined downwardly and rearwardl The rodfia passes upwardly-through .theapening 32 in the table top 30, Star the purpose herein after-appearing.

Mounted .on the table top 3.9 is a Ueshaued bracket 16 having a pair of upwardly ex-tendin arms H. The :arms 1.! are locatedin a nautical plane inclined rearwardly and .outwerdly. Hinged to the unperends of he arms Ll as 'on nivot ,pins 1.2., :is .a milk .bottle simulating :mem- 'ber 22.

The-same comprises a torsion-:springzflfi, *the outer end 01? which is at tached toithe :rear wall*82, as at-8 1. The inner end of the spring is fixed as at 88, -to a winding :stem -or shaft 89. The stem '89 passes through an opening in -the body'and is provided with .-'a handle 91. Fixed on shaft' 89'is a-pawl-92 having a' pa'ir of-spring fingers 93' the ends of "which proJect toward and press against a face of a.

pinion 95 rotatable on shaft 89. Said pinion 96 has an annular series of spaced holes 95 engageable by fingers 93. Said pinion 96 meshes with a pinion 91 mounted for rotation on the frame. Pinion 91 rotates another pinion 98 journalled in the frame, which in turn meshes with the pinion 99 fixed to a crank shaft I parallel to the shaft 89 and journalled in the frame. Journalled in the frame is a pinion I00a meshing with pinion 00. Fixed for rotation with'said pinion I00a is an eccentric weighted member I00b serving as a governor in the well known manner to regulate the speed.

It will be noted that when the spring is wound by turning the winding shaft 89, the gear train does not rotate as the fingers 93 merely click over the holes 95. However, when the shaft 89 is released, the fingers 93 will engage the holes 95 and rotate the gear train for rotating the crank shaft I00.

Fixed to the crank shaft I00 is a cam member IOI having a pair of oppositely disposed cams I02. The crank shaft I00'is formed with an offset arm Il3 formed with a finger I04 connected by link I06 to a pivot I01 on the forearm l9 and above the pivot pin 55. 7

It will now be understood that as the crank shaft I00 rotates, forearm I9 will be caused to oscillate up and-down about the pivot pin 55, and the glass will-be brought back and forth from the disc 64 to themouth of the head.

Connected to the opening 89 in the glass 20 is one end of a rubber or resilient hose or tube IIO which passes through the hand simulating member through the forearm simulating member I 9 and through the opening 54 and is wound several times around the frame 90 and within the body I5.

The tube extends to a position above the cover of the glass when said glass is in down position. It extends to a height which provides an internal volume equal to the glass volume as shown in Fig. 1 so that when the glass is lifted, all-of the liquid in the glass may pass to and be wholly contained in said tube. The tube may be attached within the body by anysuitable brackets or clips and its upper end is open.

Attached to the rear wall. 82 of the frame 80, as at H2 is one end of a spring I I3. The spring ,II3 has an offset downwardly curved arm II4 which is disposed above .a portion of the tube I I0, adjacent the opening 54. Furthermore, the curved portion I [4 of the spring is disposed above the cam arms i 02. as the crank shaft rotates, thecrank arms or cams I02 will alternately contact .the underside of spring portion II4 to successively raise the same. As each crank arm passes beyond saidpore The arrangement is such that spring Il3, such portion H4 is pressing the tube a against the platform 83a to constrict and close the tubeagainst the-passage of liquid therethrough. However, when either cam I02 engages spring-portion II4, the spring is raised and the tube is opened.

arm I9'together with the glass 20 are lifted and lowered, andalso the two cams I02 successively ,lift spring H3, so that the tube is released twice.

H3 is lifted when the arm I9 is approaching its 7 It will thus be seen that for each revolution of the crank shaft I00, the fore- -The cam pins I02 are so arranged that the spring 4 initial filled up level of the glass.

, 6 lowermost'position and when said arm is approaching its uppermost position. I

As stated above, the arm I8 may be fixed to the body in any suitable manner. It is hollow or in the formof a tube. It is open at its front end as designated by numeral I20. Adjacent the open end I20 is an annular outwardly extending bead I 2|. Rotatably mounted on arm I8 is a hand simulating member I23 which has a hollow rear tubular end I24 rotatably received within the front open end of arm I8. Said portion I24 may be formed with an outwardly extending annular bead I25 received within the bead I2I. Thus, member I23 may rotate about the axis of the front end of arm I8. The hand simulating member I23 is fixed to the milk bottle simulating member 22 so as to rotate therewith. The axis of the front end of arm IBand the rear end of hand simulating member I23 is the axis of the pivot pins I2 of the U-shaped brackets 10,'whereby to permit swinging of the bottle 13 as described hereinabove.

The operation of the device will now be described. When the toy" is purchased, the glass 20 is filled with milk by removing the cover 20a. The cover is then replaced. The milk will also go into tube H0 and up its coil until it reaches a height in the tube equal to the height of the glass. It will be noted that the glass must be filled in the down position of the glass as at that point the spring II3 will be moved off the tube by a cam pin I02. and the passage through the tube is open. When the spring motor is wound and then permitted to unwind, the crank shaft I00 will rotate and through link I06 will cause arm I9 to swing upwardly. The arm is inclined at an angle which will cause the glass to move to the mouth I6a in the head I6. As the arm starts to move up, cam pin I02 which has engaged spring portion I I4 passes beyond said spring and the spring jumps back to shut off the tube H0. The milk in the glass and the tube up to the shut off point will remain there and cannot flow out of the hole 59 in the cover 20a of the glass. When the glass reaches the mouth it will push the head I 6 back against the spring 50.

At the same time, the. next cam pin I02 will engage spring. portion II4 lifting. it and opening the tube H0. Thisv tube, it will be recollected. is coiled inside the body to a height above the When the tube is now open, the milk will drain out of the glass into the coiled tube due. to the fact that the glass is now at a higher level, and the lower.-

ing of the level of the milk in the glass will give the appearance of the milk being drunk through the mouth ofthe toy figure. By the time the hand starts its downward stroke, the glass is emptied and it appeared that the child drank the contents thereof.

As said arm starts to return downwardly, cam I02 rotates past the spring H3, and the tube is again sealed off, and the milk cannot return to the glass therefrom, even when the glass moves below the level of the coil. Whentheglass approaches its bottommost position, however, the next. cam pin I02 raises the spring II3, opens tube H0 and milk will then flow from the tube back into the glass. At the bottom of the stroke, the glass comes down on disc 64 and the lever GI down against spring 66 causing the milk bottle to swing. downward. It therefore appears that the milk returning to the glass 20 is flowing from the bottle.

This cycle is repeated with the glass emptying wes? mi ht be suede i t e em eeiment sleev feet wit i i to he ueee teee h t ell .ieeiie; he e.- n set ee ie e .ehewn e the eeee e en ine sir-ew e se is e b in e p e d es .i lliee et v en see .iee lim tin se se- .He yine hee si eer b n i v nt e, elem; new an eee z l e e eiee e ee eese P e A toy eemetiein' e beeet bl 1 m mbe we ba e ehei eimeletie me sai ee end n ee e h ie...,e lei membe e m fi u e ee er, g e be y., ;n u1 we member eei den ih eeen em me. her; a head pivoted on said body, simula in mem er ivetee e fihe .ieeii e ever t eep e t e tee e. bee e .s e e .h le by the er rm w t in t bod sn etinememee ac seemed t e Ietet e b spr n m r reed .e link i meei ee the sheet with t e 'eexm l iine membe whe b et ee e .eeid emit wil e. member heu e el e x n eiiee th new mm .e eewn e'eeitiee e1 the f ble me tlee e iii; gl ii n .ei t leeee, nerm l .epenee .we th hee s n a in thxeueh the e eerxe tee' o s he ten 9.? he ,e eee ave .meen
