UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.

JOHN W. BEIGER, 0F L UDINGTON, MICHIGAN, ASSIGNOR TO THE CARROM COMPANY,

y OF LUDINGTON, MICHIGAN.

xNocxDoWn TOY BUILDING.

Application led April 4, 1925. Serial No. 26,672.l y i To all 'whom t ymay concern.:

Be it known that I, JorrN W. Banani, a citizen of the United States, residing at Ludington, county of Mason, State of Michigan, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Knockdown Toy Buildings, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to improvements in knock-down toy buildings.

The main objects of'this invention are:

`First, to provide an improved knockdown toy building which may be formed of thin material such as veneer, binders board or the like and at the same time is stron and rigid when assembled.

Second, to provide an improved knockdown toy building of the class described which can be quickly set up or knocked down without the aid of tools. l

Objects pertaining to details and econo mies of my improvements will definitely appear from the detailed description to follow.

I accomplish the objects of my invention by the devices and means described in the following specification. The invention is clearly defined and pointed out in' the claims.

A structure which is a preferred embodiment of my invention is clearly illustrated in the accompanying drawing forminga part of this application, in which:

Fig. I is a perspective view of my improved knock-down toy building with a portion of the roof broken away.

Fig. II is a vertical section on a line corresponding to line 2 2 of Fig. I.

Fig. III is a perspective view of the parts disassembled, one of the transverse partitions, a duplicate of the one shown, being omitted.

Similar numerals of reference .indicate similar parts in all of the views.

Referring to the drawing, my toy building comprises a base designated generally by the numeral l and consisting of a rectangular' frame 2 having a thin panel 3 of veneer, binders board or the like secured thereto. The end pieces of the base frame are provided with slots 4 constituting hand holds. The end walls 5 have upwardly tapered top edges with notches 6 at the apex. These end walls are duplicates.

In the structure illustrated the end walls consist of the thin panels 7 -having channeled bottom strips 8 secured to their lower edges. On these channeled bottom strips are headed pins 9 adapted to engage with the ansversely disposed key-hole slots 1() in the The longitudinal partition wall designated generally by the numeral 11 is disposed between the end walls to .engage notches 12 in the bottom strips 8 thereof, the longitudinal partition Wall thus consti# tuting a lockingl means for the end walls. The longitudinal partitid wall has pins 13 on its bottom strip 8 enga ing the holes 14C in the base.

The transverse partitions designated generally by the numerals 15 are formed of panels 16 and have bottom strips 17 secured to their lower edges'. These bottom strips have pins 19 thereon engaging holes 20 in the base. The inner edges of the transverse partition engage the notches 21 in the bottom strip of the longitudinal partition. These transverse partitions support thev longitudinal partition in upright position.

The ceiling member 22 comprises a rectangular frame 23fhaving a panel 24 secured to the bottom thereof thus providing a receptacle. This ceiling member is arranged upon the partitions and is further supported by the blocks 25 on the end walls. The transverse partition4 members have pins 26 engaging the ceiling member thereby supporting the upper ends of the transverse partition members.

To prevent the ceiling member sliding on the blocks the end walls are provided with positioning members 27 engaging notches 28 in the ceiling member. The end members are tied tovether by the roof supporting rod 29 whic is notched at 30 to engage the notches 6 of the end walls. The hooks 8l on the end Walls engage the screw eyes 32 on the rod thereby detachably securing the rod to the end walls. The roof members 33 are formed of thin panels having channeled reinforcing strips 34 secured to their outer edges and are hinged tothe rod by means of the loop hinges 35. Thus arranged the roof members can be raised to afford access to the ceiling member which constitutes areceptacle for toys. The partition walls have door openings 36 therein, the edges of which are reinforced by the channel strips 37.

Vith the parts thus arranged they may be formed, as stated, of thin material such as veneer, binders board or the like and at the same time the structure when assembled is strong and rigid.

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