dApplication led ctober 171, v1916. Serial N o. 124,963. Y

To all whom z' may concern.-

BeY it known that I, WniLmM State of Washington, have invented certain new anduseful Improvements in Dolls, of which the following is a specification.

sists'of an improvement whereby the dolls eyes may be made to close gradually, thus..

of a child while going to sleep. Y

An object of my invention is to produce a device `of the above character which is simpleV 4and compact in construction, vand' eyes of vthe, doll. ducelost motion 'in such a device, whereby the dolls eyes will not close immediately upon rocking the doll, but their closing will.

, -be vdelayed until the doll has been rocked will be hereinafter described in the specifi-kr l cation andy defined by the claims terminatingA for a period.

My invention consists of the novell parts and combinations of parts which are shown in the accompanying drawings, and which the same.

In the drawings I have shown ymy Vinven-- tiony embodied in forms which are now pre' ferred by me.

is in the upright position.

-Fig 2 is a similar sectiony of a slightly` modified form. f

Fig. 3 is a section throughthe escapement Yfrack, showing thev weighted carriage.

Fig..4 is a bottom plan vView of a portion of ythe escapement; rack. i n Y When a childy is being.. rocked to sleep, ity does not close its eyes as soon as the rocking commences, nor does it close them quickly. Aftery aj period of rocking the childs eyes gradually close, and soon he is asleep. This action is closely imitated by my invention.

In' the ordinary vtype of sleeping doll thea: eyes close as soon as the doll starts to as sume a recumbent position. My device provides a' mechanismV which .automatically n A. TRosT, a citizen of the United States, andresidentv yof the city of Seattle, county of King, and

vbegins gradually to close the eyes, and Vcontinues the eye-closing movement whilejthe rocking continues. NVhen thefdoll is raised to an upright position, the eyes immediately through with to closeY them again.

' The eyes l are pivotedin thehead-Zl 11,V and is secured therein to open and' close the eyes. near itsconnection-with the baril.- which will' operate-to gradually closeV the Another object is to pro-k the chin, is securedfan escapement rack bar n 3. Upon opposite sides of. this rack are teeth 31, -arrangedin staggered relation, as shown in Fig: 4; kThe number of teethis immaterial, but the more teeth thereare'fon the bar, the more rockingis necessary tofclosek the eyes., ..14 I f y The upper edge 32 oftheI bar 3 serves as :a track uponH whichLV may slide 4a @weighted carriagev 4.v yIf `desired roller 41 kmaybe v. journaled at theV upper edge of the carriage to run upon jthe'y yedge 32. The weight 42 is preferably secured toboth sides of the carriage'beneath therack 3, 'in order` to prevent the displacement' of thecarriage. f

'Upon the carriage 4, and adapted'to en-y gage the teeth 31k whenfthe doll is in recumbent position, area pair of opposedescapement teeth 43.`v When the'doll is in upright k'position' these teeth 143 are thrownout of engagement with the teeth V31, due 'to the action of gravity upon-the' weight 42.

y. upright position of the doll is shown yin @Figs l and'2, injwhich the fulll lines repi resent the p'arts'in the position they would the holes 45. At the free'end of the link y parts are reversechso that the knob 51 comes" at the inner end of the link 5. This transforms the action of the'f'carriagelfroni a pull upon the eyes to a push.

The operation of the device will heap! parent, from the foregoing description. When the doll is y'laid' down, theteethA 43 engage the rack-teeth 3l, and the motion of the carriage downrthe bar is arrested. Vhen tlie doll is rocked, the sidewiseimotion rocks the carriage l, which is -loosely'mounted upon the bar 3, andthe yteeth 43 escape,

There is sufficient friction inz the'eye-s'ockets to keep Vthe eyesopen.

As the carriage travels downthe track 32 there isfat first no motion of the eyes, though the carriage slowly travels down'the'traok. VVhen'the knob 5l engages the ears 4:4, the

-` down the; track32, and as soon as Ethe ears 4:4: vengage the knob 52,*the eyes are opened.

1. The combination with adells headI having eyes movable into 5 open and f closed What Il claim as my invention is:

position, of a weight actuatively connected to the eyes and movable by. gravity to close the eyes,` means for vvv'regulating 'the speed of closure of the eyes, comprising a detent for tliejveiglit, said weight being movable "against: sai'ddetentonly while being' swung from side to side, and means for delaying the closing action of the weight upon the eyes.Y
