UNITED STATES P grENT oFFrcE- ELIZABETH W. BELL, OF NORWOOD, PENNSYLVANIA, ASSIGNOR, BY MESNE ASSIGN- MENTS, TO BELLE NOVELTY COMPANY, A CORPORATION OF DELAWARE.

DOLL-FRAME.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, ELIZABETH W. BELL, a citizen of the United States, residing at Norwood, Delaware county, State of Pennsylvania, have invented a new and useful Doll-Frame, of which the following is a specification.

This invention consists of a frame adapted to be inserted within a doll so as to enable the same to assume a sitting position.

It further consists, of a frame adapted to be inserted in a doll and having foot members which are so weighted as to balance the frame and doll and permit the latter to stand unsupported.

Figure 1 represents a complete doll frame embodying my invention. Fig. 2 represents a side view thereof in standing position. Fig. 3 represents a similar view in sitting position. Figs. 4 and 5 represent front and rear views of the body portion of the frame. Fig. 6 represents a plan of the same. Fig. 7 represents a hinge-member connecting the body portion and the legs of the doll frame. Fig. 8 represents a portion of the frame forming the legs. Fig. 9 represents a weighted foot member. Fig. 10 represents a sectional View of the doll with the frame therein. 'Fig. 11 represents a similar view showing a modification of the frame. Fig. 12 represents a section on line ww, Fig. 10.

Similar numerals of reference indicate corresponding parts in the figures.

Referring to the drawings, 1 designates a leaf of a hinge member carrying knuckles 2 to which one portion of a frame is adapted to be attached while another portion of the frame is secured to the leaf member by means passing through the apertures 3.

The body portion of the doll frame is made up, preferably, of a single piece of wire, so bent as to form an irregular shaped member 4, back member 5 and the support 6 which is adapted to come into use when the frame assumes a sitting position. The legs 7 are also, in the preferred form, made of a single piece of wire which is here shown intertwined with the apertures 3 as to firmly secure them to the leaf member 1, although of course it may be soldered or otherwise joined to the member 1. It will be seen that the member 4 is preferably oflset from the body portion for a purpose to be presently brought out.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Application filed January 3, 1908.

Patented Sept. 5, 1911. Serial No. 409,163.

As herein disclosed, the leg wire passes up through one hole 3 down through another,'up the next hole and down through the last hole from which it passes downward forming the legs 7 and the foot members 8. These foot members 8 are bent to form a horizontal portion 9 in which portion lead 10 or other weighted material is cast or fastened to form a means whereby the frame will stand unsupported in a vertical position.

It will be noted that the leaf 1 forms a stop cooperating with the member 4 of the body portion in order to limit the relative movement between the body portion and the leg members 7 and thereby correctly determine the standing position and brace the doll in such position.

When the parts are secured together as shown in Figs. 1, 2 and 8, it will be seen that a simple, light and compact metal frame has been formed which is adapted to be inserted Within the body of a doll and when secured therein will allow the doll to stand erect unsupported or assume a sitting position without the aid of exterior supporting means.

The frame is provided with a cover 11 extending suitably about the frame and having an inwardly extending portion 12 which is illustrated as covering the pivotal joint between the legs and body and protecting this joint from actual contact with and hence interference from the filling ma terial. At the same time the member 4: supports the cover and the filling material above it at this point.

I have described my invention in connection with a doll representing a child, by way of illustration, but it is evident to those skilled in the art of toy manufacture, that my invention is equally adapted for use in connection with dolls representing other animals and hence in using the term doll in the claims, I use the same in a generic sense.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is

1. In a doll, a hinged member therein, a body frame pivotally attached to the knuckles of said hinge member, extensions secured to said body frame to support the doll in sitting position, leg members secured to said hinge member, and a weight on each leg member whereby said frame will stand unsupported.

position, and weights secured to said leg members to permit the doll to stand unsupported.

4:. In a doll, ahinge member secured therein, a body frame pivotally mounted On said hinge member and passing into the head of the doll, a plurality of projections integral with said body frame to support said doll insitting position, leg members attached to said hinge member, and a weight secured to each leg member to permit the doll to stand unsupported.

5. In a doll, legs rigidly secured together and a body pivoted to the legs and having an extension below the pivotal point substantially in line with the lower part of the legs when in sitting position.

6. In a doll, leg members, a body pivotally connected to the leg members and extending below the connection to form a rest for the body in line with the lower part of the legs when in sitting position, and a stop limiting rearward pivotal movement of the legs so that at the extreme rearward posi- 'tion the doll will stand upon the legs.

7. In a frame for a doll, a body member having a forward extension near one end and a plurality of leg members rigidly secured together and pivotally connected to said extension of said body member.

8. In a frame for dolls, a body member and a plurality of leg members rigidly secured together and pivotally connected thereto intermediate the length of the body member.

9. In a doll, a body frame member, leg frame members, a pivotal connection between the body and leg members spaced in front of the body frame member and near its lower end, weighted feet and a covering for the frame members balancing the body upon the feet in standing position and bringing the back of the legs in line with the lower end of the body adjacent the end of the body frame when the doll is in sitting position.

10. In a stuffed doll, a body, a frame member therein, a forward extension from said frame, leg members pivoted to said extension, and means for closing the lower part of said body above said extension to keep the filling material ofthe body away from the pivot point.

11. In a stufied doll, an outer stuffed body member, a frame within the stuiiing thereof, a forward projection from said frame supporting the filling material in the body, legs pivoted to said projection and an extension of the frame below the projection.
