G/ms'e O ae 5/500 United States Patent 3,515,404 GOCART FOR CHILDREN Giuseppe Perego, Arcore, Milan, Italy Filed Feb. 1, 1968, Ser. No. 702,334 Claims priority, application Italy, Feb. 4, 1967, 7,797 67 Int. Cl. B621) 7/00 U.S. Cl. 28087.2 2 Claims ABSTRACT OF THE DISCLOSURE Gocart for children essentially made up from a plastic single piece hollow laminar body, the upper edge of which is folded back towards the inside and downwardly terminating in a seat and mounted on freely turnable and orientable wheels.

The subject matter of the present invention is a childrens gocart characterized by the fact that it is essentially made up of a hollow laminar body of truncated cone shape, the upper edge of which is folded back towards the inside and downwards and terminates in an intermediate diaphragm, parallel to the larger base which makes up the seat and is provided with openings for the legs to pass through, the whole being obtained by means of moulding in a single piece out of plastic material and mounted on freely turnable and orientable wheels.

Onto the outside wall of the gocart there can finally be applied, by means of simple slipping-on, a ring-form plate which is useful as a surface for the objects placed at the disposal of the child.

On the outside wall of the said body there are advantageously obtained by moulding small bridges arranged in crown-form and at a short distance from the upper border of the gocart, and this so that there can be passed through them a cord or other cord-shaped element onto which are strung various elements that have to be within the childs reach.

For greater clarification, the gocart in question is illustrated in the annexed drawings, in which:

FIG. 1 shows a perspective view of the gocart without plate,

FIG. 2 shows the same perspective view with plate applied,

FIG. 3 shows a vertical section.

The gocart illustrated consists of a hollow laminar body 1 of truncated cone form, the upper edge 2 of which is folded back towards the inside and downwards and terminates in the diaphragm 3 which constitutes the seat which is substantially parallel to the larger base provided with openings 45 for the childs legs to pass through.

The whole is in a single piece of plastic and is mounted on four wheels 6, freely orientable in a manner as is known.

Along a circle close to the upper edge of the gocart there is molded around the body 1 a depression 8 interrupted by a plurality of equi-angularly spaced small bridges 7 which serve for the passing through of a cord or other flexible member, onto which there can be strung objects (for example, balls, bells, etc.), which are intended to be within the reach of the child.

There is finally foreseen the possibility of applying to the gocart, by simply slipping it on, a plate 9 of ring form, with the internal and external edges slightly raised. This serves as support-surface for the objects placed at the disposal of the child and, if so wished, can be removed by simple slipping-Off.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim is:

1. A gocart for children, comprising a single-piece, plastic, laminar hollow body of truncated cone shape, the upper edge of which is folded back towards the inside and downwards, terminating in an integral diaphragm, intermediate top and bottom of the body and parallel to the bottom, which constitutes a seat, said diaphragm having an opening therein for the childs legs to pass through, a plurality of freely rotatable and orientable wheels secured to the bottom of said body for supporting said body, and a removable, ring-form plate slidable on and off said body and adapted to fit over and around the periphery of the body, said plate having its edges slightly raised for supporting objects placed at the childs disposal.

2. A gocart for children, comprising a single-piece, plastic, laminar hollow body of truncated cone shape, the upper edge of which is folded back towards the inside and downwards, terminating in an integral diaphragm, intermediate top and bottom of the body and parallel to the bottom, which constitutes a seat, said diaphragm having an opening therein for the childs legs to pass through, a plurality of freely rotatable and orientable wheels secured to the bottom of said body for supporting said body, the external wall of said body having integral therewith a plurality of angularly-spaced small bridges disposed around it at a short distance from the upper edge of said body through which a cord-like element may be passed onto which various objects can be strung.
