FREDERICK WILLIAM PARSONS, OF CLEVELAND, OHIO, ASSIGNOR TO THE PARSONS- JACKSON COMPANY, OF CLEVELAND, OHIO, A CORPORATION OF OHIO.

DOLL.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Apr. 20, 1915.

To all 'whom it may concem."

Be it known that I, FREDERICK WILLIAM PARSONS, citizen of the United States, residing at Cleveland, in the county of Cuyahoga and State of Ohio, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Dolls, of which the following is a specification.

This invention has reference to dolls, and is an improvement on the doll shown and claimed in my application, Ser. No. 679,818, iled February 26, 1912, all substantially as shown and described and particularly pointed out in the claims.

In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is' a front partially sectioned elevation of the doll, and Fig. 2 is a vertical central sectional elevation thereof, front to rear. Fig. 3 is a detail of the body alone, and Fig. 4 is a detail of one of the legs, partially sectioned at its top. Fig. 5 is a perspective view of one of the two leg connections as hereinafter fully described.

The invention herein resides mainly in important details of construction which constitute the material difference and improvement over the invention disclosed in my said former application, and one of these details consists in the collar c at the top of the body b and which provides a seat for neck n on head It. The said collar is original and peculiar in this particularly that it has a special bead 2 inside about the said collar which provides a uniform reinforcement and strengthening medium to protect the collar against splitting or cracking. Of course the body of the doll is a mere shell and no heavier than is actually required to give it the requisite stiffness and durability, and hence a distinct reinforcement or internal enlargement is required in the collar as otherwise it is too weak for service and exceedingly liable to be split or broken especially when the doll is allowed to fall on its head or' head down, as frequently occurs with children. The construction or taper of the neck n where it seats on the collar contributes to this effect, but with the bead 2 inside as shown such cracking or splitting of the collar does not occur. The said bead therefore is regarded as an essential and important improvement. Again, theA connection of the arms a with the body and with each other` is deemed original and im-v portant and materially different from what at the extremities of said connections, thus providing for the free rotation of each arm indefinitely without in any manner ail'ecting the other arm or the connections between them as well as adapting the arm to rock freely within limits on its bearing or ball. To these ends a suitable spring 4 is employed and which in this instance is of a straight'spiral pattern rather closely wound and of strength suilicient to hold the arms in working position, and the links 5 are of wire engaged at their ends with said spring and provided with suitable beads at their outer ends swiveled in the arms behind 'suitable metallic washers 7 and disks 8 overlapping the edges of said washers and cemented or otherwise permanently adhered or aflixed to the said arms. The same or similar links 5 and washer and disk are employed in connection with the legs 1, but the connections between the links 5 differ from those of the arms as will presently be seen. The balls 3 for the arms and the similar balls 10 for the legs have holes 12 in their center large enough to permit the rocking of the said members in their sockets within operating limits and yet not bend or strain the said links 5 across the edges of said holes. The sockets in the arms and legs for said balls are of a sufficient width to engage over or upon the balls and to permit the attachment of the said links 5 by the washers 7 and the disks 8, which latter usually are of the same material as the doll itself. The fact that the attachment of links 5 is made in the manner shown in or u on the outer wall of the arms and legs ma (es it imperative that the sockets should be in the arms and not in the body of the doll as otherwise such attachment would be impossible. Normally the connection between the arms is directly or straight across from one to the other by means of spring 4, and this relation of the spring does not change however the arms may be turned or adjusted.

Connected with the links 5 of the legs are the extension links 14 and 15 on each side, and the latter have a swivel connection with a link 16 on a single central spring 17 united at its upper end by link connection 20 with the head L. The said links 15 are preferably made of still sheet metal bent to right angles in their outer portions for the insertion of the swivel links 14 and provided with holes in their inner ends and overlapped and connected by link 16 swiveled in said holes and attached to spring 17. The said several links 5, 14 and 15 are located and arranged to provide a central inward and upward -pull or tension on the balls and sockets of the legs 1, and said connections are accordingly higlhest at the center where they engage wit spring 17 adapted to exert an ulpward pull and incline thence outward to t legs. The said legs are thus provided with independent rotation in their sockets with the swivel in the part 15. The spring 17 unites the said legs or their flexible connections with the head h, which brings the said parts into working relations under the same tension and with but a single central spring through which the tension on the said parts is effected and equalized. In this connection it will be observed that the said legs are located practically at the side of body b but have their bearings or sockets at a slight inward inclination at the bottom so that the legs can be swung bodily around on their sockets in either direction, as may also the arms a, and either may be so rotated regardless of the position of the other.

What I claim is:

l. A doll having a hollow body and hollow arms and legs and provided with ball and socket joints for the said arms and legs, and flexible connection between the arms and between the legs having beads swivele on the inside of the walls thereof.

2. A doll body having hollow arms and legs socketed thereon, flexible connection between said members respectively provided with beads at their ends and metallic wasliers secured over said beads on the walls of said parts.

3. A doll having hollow members socketed on the body thereof, and flexible sprin connections through said body having swive engagement on the inside of the outer walls of said members, said engagement comprising a metallic washer and a disk over said washer permanently adhered to said wall about the edge of the washer.

4. A doll having hollow members socketed on the side of the body thereof, a spring tension connection through said sockets having beads at its ends, metal washers over said beads on the walls of said members and means over said washers co'nning the same in working position on said walls.

5. A doll having hollow arms socketed thereon, a single transverse spring and links at the ends thereof provided with balls engaged in the outer wall of said arms and means confining said balls in working position against the wall of said arms.

6. A. doll having hollow legs socketed thereon, a transversely disposed connection swiveled at its ends in the outer wall of said legs and an equalizing spring engaged with the middle of said connection.

7. A doll provided with a hollow body and hollow legs socketed on the sides thereof, transversely disposed swivel connections between said legs, and a spring attached to the middle of said connections and to theA head of the doll and in tension relations with the said head and the said connections respectively.

8. A doll having legs socketed at the sides thereof, a flexible substantially transverse connection between said legs swiveled in the legs at its ends, a head socketed on the body of the doll and a spring interposed between said head and the said transverse connection.

9. A doll body having legs socketed thereon and cross connections between said legs holding the same on said sockets, said connections provided with swivels in the legs and a single equalizing spring engaged with said connections and anchored at the top of said body.

10. A doll body having a head and legs socketed thereon,in combination with a tension mechanism connecting said several parts comprising a single spring linked to said head and a transverse disposed connection between said legs having said spring attached to the middle thereof.

In testimony whereof I aiix my signature in presence of two witnesses.

FREDERICK WILLIAM PARSONS.
