Jan. 4v, 1927.

Patented Jan. 4, 1927i.

UNlTED STATES FRANK 1v1. PIERCE, OF CHCAGO, ELLINOIS.

Application iled November 19, 192B. Serial No. 675,491.

This invention relates to a toy and comprises a rotary disk having a centrally located bell and 4ornamental objects pivoted around said bell adapted to be set in motion for producing a pleasing eiiect together with means for striking the bell.

The invention consists in the novel structure and combinations hereinafter described and more particularly pointed out and delined in the appended claims.

In the accompanying drawings which illustrate certain preferred embodiments of this invention and in which similar reference numerals refer to similar features in` y abuts the brake fiange 6 of the disk,

the diderent views.

On the drawing: n

Figure 1 is a top plan of a toy involving this. invention.

Figure 2 is an elevational view of the toy. Figure 3 is a central vertical section of the toy.

Figure 4` is a top plan view of a modified form lof toy involving this invention.

As shown on the drawings:

In referring to the drawings, there is shown a handle 1 having a rod 2 supported therein, upon which a rotary drum 3 is mounted. A disk 4 is mounted concentrically of the rod and is provided with a downwardly extending conical hub 5 which normally bears upon the drum 3 which in turn forms the bearing support for the disk. The outer periphery of the disk 4 is provided with a marginal flange 6 to form a braking surface as will hereinafter more fully appear. n

A bell 7 is secured upon the top of the rod 2, its lower edge extending adjacent the top of the disk so as to prevent undue canting of said disk. A plurality of ornamental members are pivoted upon the disk so as to surround the bell. In the present instance these ornamental members are concentrically arranged with respect to the bell. These ornamental members may take the forni of colored disks 8, 9 and 10 as shown in Figure 1 or they may be in the form of bell boys 11 shown in Figure 4. The bell boys 11 are pivoted to the disks intermediate their ends so that their caps or heads will strike the bell as they revolve as will later appear; their .feet however, passing without striking the bell. A tumbler or bell striker 17 is positioned under the bell upon the disk 4 for striking the bell as the disk crimped over the edges of the support so as to facilitate sliding movement thereof.`

Means are preferably provided 0n the brake arm 12L t-ointercept the lips 14 to prevent the brake from sliding outwardly oft' of the support 12. Inward movement lof the brake may take place until the other arm ln order to rotate the disk, a cord 15 is fastened around the conical hub of the disk. Lips may be punched lfrom the conical hub, of the disk for clamping the cord thereto. The cord is then wound around the drum 3 and passed through a slot 16 in the upright arm of the brake. The end of the cord is provided with a handle 18 which not only serves as a hand hold but which also serves to about the vertical arm of the brake bracket 13 and slide the same inward- 1y to bring it into contact withithe brake flange 6 for applying a braking action as will later appear. For this purpose, the handle should be designed so that it will not pass through the slot 16.

In the operation of the toy, assuming that the cord is wound upon the drum, the handle 18 is grasped and given a sudden pull whereby the disk 4 is caused to rotate sufciently fast so that it will acquire enough momentum to continue after the cord has been unwound and rewind the same though in an opposite directions, for a second operation. As the cord is being thuswise rewound, it will draw the handle 18 inwardly against the brake bracket 13 and cause the saine to slide inwardly and apply a braking action upon the disk. This braking action will cause the disk 4 to stop suddenly and the sudden stopping of the disk will cause the colored disks 8, 9 and 10 or the bell boys 11 depending upon which form is used, to spin around or accelerate the spinning thereof rlhis spinning yof the rotatable disks which are of different colors, effects a color lending effect which is pleasing to the eye and instructive and amusing. If the bell boys 11 are used, their heads will strike the bell and cause the saine to ring. In the first form of the invention the centrifugal force will impell the movable bell striker 17 outwardly for striking the bell.

It Will be appreciated that the toy will provide a novel form of amusement for a child, since it contains attractive revolving members to catch the eye and at the same time provides audible vibrations, and a simple `operating means whereby the child Will have some physical Work to do.

I am avvare that numerous details of construction may be varied through a Wide range Without departing from the principles of this invention, and I therefore do not purpose limiting the patent granted hereon, otherwise than necessitated by the prior art.

I claim as my invention:

l. In a toy, a revolvable disk, a bell associated with said disk, a movable member upon said disk, a resilient brake adapted for engaging the periphery of said disk, an operating cable for revolving said disk, said cable having means for engaging and applying said brake at a predetermined time for stopping said disk for the purpose set forth.

2. In a toy, a revolvable disk, a bell associated with said disk, a movable member on said disk adapted for striking said bell, operating means for rotating said disk and braking means for said disk adapted to be applied at a predetermined time by said operating means.

3. In a toy, a rotatable disk, a bell associated with said disk, rotatable members upon said disk, a resilient brake adapted for engaging said disk, an operating cable for rotating said disk, said cable having means for engaging and applying said brake for suddenly stopping said disk.

t. In a toy, a revolvable disk, members rotatably mounted thereon, a brake for stopping said disk, means for rotating said disk, and means associated with said rotating means for suddenly applying said brake for causing said members to rotate.

5. In a toy, a revolvable disk, members rotatably mounted upon said disk, means for rotating said disk, a brake for stopping said disk, and means associated With said rotating means for operating said brake for causing said members to rotate.

6. In a toy, a rotatable disk, movable members on said disk, means comprising a re' silient brake member having a slot therethrough for stopping said disk, means eX- tending through said slot for rotating said disk, and means associated With said rotating' means and adapted to engage said brake on either side of said slot for operating the same.

7. In a toy, rotatable disk, a bell above said disk, rotatable members on said disk, means for rotating said disk, means associated with said rotating means for causing said members to rotate, and means associated with said members upon the rotation thereof to strike said bell.

In testimony whereof I have hereunto subscribed my name.

FRANK M. PIERCE.
