【発明が解決しようとする課題】
従来の乳母車においては、幌は、椅子状態の座席に適合する高さの位置で乳母車本体に取り付けられている。椅子状形態とベッド状形態とに切換え可能な座席を有する乳母車においても、幌は、椅子状形態の座席に適合する高さ位置で取り付けられる。そのため、座席をベッド状形態にしたとき、幌は、ベッド状の座席からかなり上方に位置することになり、子供を日差しから有効に保護できないような場合が生じ得る。
【0007】
特に、軽量化、コンパクト化を狙った乳母車の場合、幌の大きさも小さくする傾向にあるので、乳母車をベッド状態にしたとき、子供を日差しから護るという幌本来の機能も果し得なくなるおそれがある。
【0008】
この発明の目的は、椅子状形態およびベッド状形態の両状態において、子供を日差しから有効に保護することのできる幌を備えた乳母車を提供することである。
【0009】
【課題を解決するための手段】
この発明に従った乳母車は、椅子状形態とベッド状形態とに切換え可能な座席を有する乳母車本体と、座席の上部を覆うような位置で乳母車本体に取り付けられた幌とを備える。幌は、椅子状形態の座席を覆う上方位置と、ベッド状形態の座席を覆う下方位置との間で高さ調節可能に設けられている。
【0010】
一つの実施形態では、幌は、上方位置および下方位置で、乳母車本体に着脱可能に取り付けられている。
【0011】
上記の本発明によれば、幌は、椅子状形態およびベッド状形態の両状態において、それぞれ最適な高さ位置にあるので、子供を日差しから有効に保護することができる。
【0012】
【発明の実施の形態】
図1〜図5を参照して、この発明の一実施形態を説明する。
【0013】
図1および図2を比較すれば明らかなように、乳母車1は、椅子状形態(図1)およびベッド状形態(図2)に切換え可能な座席2と、座席2の上部を覆う幌10とを備える。乳母車1は、1対の手摺部材4の後方端部分から上方に延びている逆U字形状の押棒3を備えている。幌10は、押棒10の1対の縦棒3aに着脱可能に取り付けられる。
【0014】
図3は、幌10を示す側面図である。幌10は、取り付けベース14から上方に延びている幌骨11、12と、幌骨上に被せられる幌布13とを有する。図3では、幌布13を想像線で示している。
【0015】
幌10は、図1に示す上方位置と、図2に示す下方位置との間で高さ調節可能に設けられている。すなわち、座席2を図1に示す椅子状形態にしたとき、幌10の高さを椅子状形態に対して最適な上方位置にする。座席2を図2に示すベッド状形態にしたとき、幌10の高さをベッド状形態に対して最適な下方位置にする。
【0016】
上述のような幌10の高さ調節を可能にするために、図示した実施形態では、幌10は、押棒3の1対の縦棒3aに着脱可能に取り付けられている。図4は、幌10を押棒3に取り付ける前の状態を示し、図5は取り付け後の状態を示している。
【0017】
図4に示すように、押棒3の1対の縦棒3aは、前述した幌10の上方位置および下方位置に対応する上下の2箇所の位置に、凹部3bを有する。幌10の取り付けベース14は、縦棒3aの外面上に嵌る外筒部14aを有する。外筒部14aの内面には、縦棒3aの凹部3bに係合する凸部14bが設けられている。取り付けベース14は、例えば樹脂で作られており、外筒部14aの直径を多少拡張できる弾力性を有している。
【0018】
図4に示す状態から、幌10の取り付けベース14を押棒3の縦棒3aに押し付ければ、図5に示すように、幌10の取り付けベース14の凸部14bと縦棒3aの凹部3bとが係合状態になり、幌10の位置を固定できる。
【0019】
こうして、本発明の一実施形態によれば、幌を、椅子状形態およびベッド状形態の両状態において、それぞれ最適な高さ位置に取り付けることができるので、子供を日差しから有効に保護することができる。
【0020】
なお、上述の実施形態では、幌10を押棒3に着脱可能に取り付けていたが、押棒以外の乳母車本体に取り付けることも可能である。
【0021】
また、他の実施形態として、幌を乳母車本体に対して上下方向にスライド可能に設けるようにしてもよい。この場合であっても、幌は、椅子状形態に最適に適合する上方位置と、ベッド状形態に最適に適合する下方位置とを取り得るようにすることが必要である。
【0022】
なお、高さ調節可能な幌を備える乳母車は従来から存在しているが、これらの乳母車では、幌は、椅子状形態に適した高さの範囲内で高さ調節可能になっているだけである。椅子状形態とベッド状形態の両状態において最適高さ位置を取り得るような幌を備えた乳母車は、従来、全く提供されていない。
【0023】
好ましくは、幌は、椅子状形態に適した高さおよびベッド状形態に適した高さの両状態において、乳母車の折畳み動作に支障をきたさないように構成する。乳母車が椅子状形態になっているとき、幌は、通常、背もたれ部よりも上方に位置するので、その存在が背もたれ部と座部とを近づける折畳み動作に支障をきたさない。乳母車がベッド状形態になっているときには、幌は、ベッド状形態に適した高さになっている。幌をこの高さに維持したままで乳母車の折畳み動作を行なうと、幌は、背もたれ部と座部とに挟まれて前後方向に縮小する。
【0024】
以上、図面を参照してこの発明の一実施形態を説明したが、この発明は、図示した実施形態に限定されるものではない。図示した実施形態に対して、この発明と同一の範囲内において、またはこの発明と均等の範囲内において種々の修正や変形を加えることが可能である。

[Problems to be solved by the invention]
In a conventional stroller, the top is attached to the stroller body at a height that is suitable for a seat in a chair state. Even in a stroller having a seat that can be switched between a chair-like configuration and a bed-like configuration, the top is mounted at a height suitable for a seat in the chair-like configuration. Therefore, when the seat is in the form of a bed, the hood is located considerably above the bed-shaped seat, and there may be a case where the child cannot be effectively protected from the sun.
[0007]
In particular, in the case of a stroller aimed at weight reduction and compactness, the size of the hood tends to be reduced, so when the stroller is in a bed state, the original function of the hood, which protects children from the sun, may not be able to be performed. is there.
[0008]
An object of the present invention is to provide a stroller provided with a hood that can effectively protect a child from sunlight in both a chair-like state and a bed-like state.
[0009]
[Means for Solving the Problems]
A stroller according to the present invention includes a stroller body having a seat that can be switched between a chair-like form and a bed-like form, and a hood attached to the stroller body at a position covering an upper portion of the seat. The top is adjustable in height between an upper position covering the chair-shaped seat and a lower position covering the bed-shaped seat.
[0010]
In one embodiment, the hood is detachably attached to the stroller body at an upper position and a lower position.
[0011]
According to the above-described present invention, the hood is at the optimum height position in both the chair-like form and the bed-like form, and thus can effectively protect the child from the sun.
[0012]
BEST MODE FOR CARRYING OUT THE INVENTION
An embodiment of the present invention will be described with reference to FIGS.
[0013]
As is apparent from a comparison between FIG. 1 and FIG. 2, the stroller 1 includes a seat 2 that can be switched between a chair-like form (FIG. 1) and a bed-like form (FIG. 2), and a top 10 that covers the upper part of the seat 2. Is provided. The stroller 1 includes an inverted U-shaped push rod 3 extending upward from the rear end portion of the pair of handrail members 4. The hood 10 is detachably attached to a pair of vertical bars 3 a of the push bar 10.
[0014]
FIG. 3 is a side view showing the top 10. The hood 10 has hoods 11 and 12 extending upward from a mounting base 14, and a hood cloth 13 covered on the hood. In FIG. 3, the hood cloth 13 is shown by imaginary lines.
[0015]
The top 10 is provided so as to be adjustable in height between an upper position shown in FIG. 1 and a lower position shown in FIG. That is, when the seat 2 is in the chair-like configuration shown in FIG. 1, the height of the hood 10 is set to an optimum upper position with respect to the chair-like configuration. When the seat 2 is in the bed-like configuration shown in FIG. 2, the height of the hood 10 is at an optimum lower position with respect to the bed-like configuration.
[0016]
In the illustrated embodiment, the top 10 is detachably attached to a pair of vertical bars 3 a of the push bar 3 in order to enable the height adjustment of the top 10 as described above. FIG. 4 shows a state before the hood 10 is attached to the push rod 3, and FIG. 5 shows a state after the attachment.
[0017]
As shown in FIG. 4, the pair of vertical bars 3 a of the push bar 3 has concave portions 3 b at two upper and lower positions corresponding to the upper position and the lower position of the hood 10 described above. The mounting base 14 of the hood 10 has an outer cylindrical portion 14a that fits on the outer surface of the vertical bar 3a. On the inner surface of the outer cylindrical portion 14a, a convex portion 14b that engages with the concave portion 3b of the vertical rod 3a is provided. The mounting base 14 is made of, for example, a resin, and has elasticity capable of slightly expanding the diameter of the outer cylindrical portion 14a.
[0018]
When the mounting base 14 of the hood 10 is pressed against the vertical bar 3a of the push rod 3 from the state shown in FIG. 4, as shown in FIG. 5, the convex portion 14b of the mounting base 14 of the hood 10 and the concave portion 3b of the vertical bar 3a Are engaged, and the position of the hood 10 can be fixed.
[0019]
Thus, according to one embodiment of the present invention, the hood can be mounted at the optimal height position in both the chair-like form and the bed-like form, and thus the child can be effectively protected from the sun. it can.
[0020]
In the above-described embodiment, the hood 10 is detachably attached to the push rod 3, but may be attached to a stroller body other than the push rod.
[0021]
Further, as another embodiment, the hood may be provided so as to be slidable in the vertical direction with respect to the stroller main body. Even in this case, the hood needs to be able to have an upper position optimally adapted to the chair-like configuration and a lower position optimally adapted to the bed-like configuration.
[0022]
Although baby carriages with a height-adjustable top have conventionally existed, in these baby carriages, the top is only adjustable in height within a range suitable for a chair-like form. is there. There has been no baby carriage provided with a hood so that it can assume the optimum height position in both the chair-like form and the bed-like form.
[0023]
Preferably, the hood is configured so as not to hinder the folding operation of the stroller in both the height suitable for the chair-like form and the height suitable for the bed-like form. When the stroller is in a chair-like configuration, the hood is usually located above the backrest, so that its presence does not hinder the folding operation of bringing the backrest and the seat closer. When the stroller is in the bed configuration, the top is at a height suitable for the bed configuration. When the stroller is folded while the top is kept at this height, the top is reduced in the front-rear direction by being sandwiched between the backrest and the seat.
[0024]
As described above, one embodiment of the present invention has been described with reference to the drawings. However, the present invention is not limited to the illustrated embodiment. Various modifications and variations can be made to the illustrated embodiment within the same scope as the present invention or within the scope equivalent to the present invention.
