Description

AMELIA MORSE, OF NEW YORK, N. Y.
NURSERY-BATTLE.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Feb. 8, 1916.
Application led November 27, 1915. Serial No. 63,739.
To ZZ whom it may concern.'
13e it known that I, AMELIA lMousr., a citizen of the United States, and a resident of the city of New York, borough of Manhattan, in the county and State of New York, have invented a new and Improved Nursery-Rattle, ot' which the following is a full, clear, and exact. description.
This invention relates to toys and especially to such devices as are commonly called baby or nursery rattles.
Among the objects of the invention is to provide a device of the character indicated of unusually pleasing and attractive appearance and provided with several parts adapted to move relatively to each other around a common axis, one part being within t-he other and provided with a plurality or series of illustrations adapted to be viewed in succession through one or more windows formed in or through the outer part.
lith the foregoing and other objects in view, the invention consists in the arrangement and combination of parts hereinafter described and claimed, and while the invention is not restricted to the exact details of construction disclosed herein, still for thc purpose of illustrating a practical embodiment thereof reference is had to the accompanying drawings, in which like reference characters designate the saine parts in the several views, and in which- Figure 1 is a front elevation of a preferred embodiment of the invention, parts being broken awayr to disclose the manner of construction; Fig. 2 is a partial View looking in the direction of the arrow 2 on Fig. 1; Fig. 3 is a diagram or development of that portion of the inner body showing a suggested series of illustrations; and Fig. -t is a front elevation of the device coinplete but on a smaller' scale than Fig. 1.
Referring now more particularly to the drawings, 1 show a holder comprising a stern 10 and upper and lower rings 11 and 12 secured rigidly to the ends of the stem. These and other parts of the device are preferably made of celluloid or some other suitable durable and sanitary material.
Secured to and around the stem slightly below the upper ring 11 is a hollow sounding body 13 shown in this instance as spherical in form and adapted to contain one or more pebbles 11, or their equivalent, for making a rattling noise when the device is shaken in the usual manner. Regarding the stein 10 as the polar axis of the body 13, I provide around its equatorial circumference a series or succession of such illustrations as are attractive to small children, such illustrations being indicated in the development of Fig. 3, and the other views showing portions of the same. These illustrations may be made to represent subjects of nursery tales or the like, and are preferi ably so arranged as to be considered as chasing one another around the supporting body. A second hollow body 15 shown also as of spherical form is arranged around the inner body 13 and of suilicientlv larger diameter to prevent any possibility of contact between the two bodies. rThe outer body is secured rigidly at one point 1G to a hollow handle or sleeve 17 loosely surrounding the siem and adapted to bear at its .lower end upon or against the lower ring 12. The upper end or pole oit the outer body is pivoted loosely around the stem closely adjacent the upper ring. The two rings, therefore, of the holder constitute a means to prevent endwise displacement of the outer body and sleeve along the stem and whereby the outer body is held substantially concentric with respect to the inner body 13. The sleeve 17 may constitute the usual handle for the rattle, and when the handle is thus grasped and held stationary` the holder and inner body 13 are adapted to be rotated therein for the purpose of bringing any or all of the pictures in succession into view through any one or more of the windows 18 formed in or along the equatorial circumference of the outer body. The windows are preferably simply open holes with rims 19 surrounding and reinforcing the edges thereof.
1. The herein described nursery rattle comprising a holder, a hollow sounding body secured rigidly thereto, means within the body to cause a rattling sound, one or more illustrations arranged upon the surface of said body, another hollow body surrounding the first mentioned body, and means connected to the outer body to prevent endwise movement thereof with respect to the holder and inner body but permitting relative rotation of the inner and outer bodies with respect to each other, said illustrations being visible in succession through the wall of the outer body.
2. In a nursery rattle, the combination of a holder, a hollow sounding ball secured to and around Said holder, means Within the ball to Cause a rattling noise, the holder oonstituting a polar axis for the ball, a series ot' illustrations of Common objects arranged around the equatorial circumference of the ball and all indicated as progressing in the saine direction` a hollow body surrounding said ball and spaced therefrom and rotatable around said polar axis, and means to prevent endwise movement of the hollow body with respect to the ball, said illustrations being visible in succession through the 'all of the outer body.
3. ln a nursery rattle, the combination of a holder comprising an axial stem and an enlargement at each end thereof, a hollow sounding body secured rigidly to the stein adjacent but spaced from one of the enlargements, means Within the body to Cause a rattling sound, a series of illustrations of common objects arranged around the hollow body in a plane perpendicular to the stein, a hollow body surrounding and spaced freely from the sounding body and journaled for rotation around said axial stem, the latter body being provided with an opening in its wall in the plane of said illustrations whereby the illustrations may be viewed in sueeession through the opening, and a sleeve secured at one end to the latter mentioned body and adapted to bear at its other end against the other enlargement., substantially as set forth.
