BEULAH L. HENRY, 01E YORK,` N. Y., A'SSIGNOR .0F OEeTHIRD '1'0 EDXVARD B.

TWOMBLY, OF NEW YORK, N. Y.

DOLL.

Application led November 24, 1922. Serial No. 603,023.

To all who/m. 'it may concern.' Be it known that I, BEULAH L. HENRY, a cit-izen of the' United States', residing at New York city, in the county of lNew York 5 and State of New York, have invented newand useful Improvements in Dolls, of which the following is a specification.

This invention-relates to dolls. p An object of the invention isto provide "ag doll whose adjuncts are relatively arranged and designed. of materials which will give life like animation or springiness 4to ,the structure and renderv same capable lof various contortions and inherently 'responsive to actions which will restore the parts or adjuncts to normal positions after distortion. Af still further object of the invention is to provide a doll of this character which will be of a sanitary construction and formed of a waterproof material so that it may be washed when the occasion necessitates. l Another object of the invention is to provide a device of this character which shall be simple and inexpensive of construction M and capable of rapid manufacture. i

Another object of the invention is to provide a doll consisting of a novel foundation or core structure adapted to be readily assoeiated with an outer form giving material 3 so that the outer character of the doll can be quickly changed at the' will of the manufacturer.` With these and other objects in view, the invention resides in certain novel constructio-n and combination and arrangement of parts, thev essential features of which are hereinafter fully described, are particularly pointed out .in the appended claims, and

are 'illustrated in the accompanying draw- 40 ing, in which d igure l is a vertical section through the Figure 2 is a perspective' viewthereof in itsA partly finished state.

F1 re 3 is a view similar to Figure 2 of the 011 in its fully finished state.

Figure 4 is a perspective viewfshowing fragments ofthe springs constituting the core or form of the doll. In carrying the in'vention into practice, I use a form or core consisting of identical elastic strips of material 5. These strips may be in the form of rubber, felt, or'the equivalent thereof. In practice, I nd weak 55 coil springs to be best for this purpose as shown inFigures 1 and 4. These strips are arranged relatively to constitute the arms 6, 6, body 7 andlegs 8, 8 of the doll. At the 'juncture of the vleg springs with the base of the body spring 7 the convolutions of the 0U former are threaded, into convolutions of the 'latter so as to providea hinge joint and to hold the several springs together. At the juncture of the arm springs 6 with the body spring '7, the convolutions of the former are 65 thi ealded into adjacent convolutions of said body spring, ypreferably at a point below the upper extremitvof -said bodyispring. In this manner a jointed connection is formed between said arm springs and themating body spring of the structure. By connecting: the arm springs slightly below the up- .per extremity of thc'body spring, said upper extremity as illustrated at 9 is extended to form a flexible spring neck and head attaching part whose purpose will be presently explained. Y v When the several springsl 5 are connected as aforesaid I cover all of them with a vpadding material l() suchas cotton batting or 80 the like. This padding. is preferably. in sheet form and same is wrapped about the springs so as to give a, body formation to the doll. A portion ofthe padding is made to vembrace the neck portion 9 of the longi- 85 tudinal spring 5 which joins the leg and arm springs.. At this point the padding is extended upward and molded into the form of a head 11. I then envelop the structure V within 2in-,elastic covering 12 of sheet rubber 90 or other suitable A'waterproof material. This gives to the doll a permanent' form `and retainsl the cotton batting uniformly aroundy the respective springs 5,. It also provides a sanitaryarrangement which will permit the .95

doll to be washed as the occasion necessitates. The exposed extremities of the springs 5 are varranged in confinement with corks or other C'suitable'elements 13 which-I give a conventional-bandand foot appearance to the finished structure. The arrangement is such that the whole structure can be molded into innumeable characters in simulation of those pictured inrfairy tales, nursery rhymes or the like. The outer er1- 1.05' veloping structure or covering 12 'coacts with the springs 5. to give vadded elasticity to the structure. This lends to the animated characteristics of the structure as will be fully understood. A doll constructed in l l this .manner-is. capable of certain-life like contortion and -through the vinherent nature of the adjuncts herein referred to the doll is automaticallyv adapted to return to its'f.

normall form after tion.

While I have described what I deem t0. -be the most desirable embodiment of my invention, it is obvious that many ofthe details maylbe varied without in anyway departbemg subjected to distoring from the spirit bmy mvention, and I therefore do not limit myself to the exact details ef construction herein set orthnor to anything less than the lwhole of my inclaims.

. What is claimed as new is :V

vention limited only by` the appended 1. A doll including a form consisting of ag ing upwardly beyond theA connection with the arm4 springs to. form a flexible neck, and a springs.

.2. A iigure toy consistin of a coil-spring arranged to constitute the dy of the toy,

3. A toy including a plurality of springy limb and body forming pliable padding covering all of said.

' a pair-'ofcoil springs threadedly connected to the -lower end ofthe first spring, a second pair of .coil springs threadedly 'connected to the first spring adjacent its top, a .portion .of said first spring extending beyond the. connect-ion with the second pair of coilv springs, all of said springs being enveloped by apliable covering. y

form consisting of a members jointed together and movable lrelatively, the body single 'coil spring,` and thelimb forming membersI being individual coil springs which are threaded into the body forming` member to provide joints therewith; the -body forming member at one end thereof extending beyond the point of `juncture. fthereto of two ofthe limb forming members. A
