TOY VEHICLE.

Application filed July 6, 1926.

This invention, generally stated, relates to toys and has more especial relation to a toy vehicle for use by children which is propelled by the foot action of the person using the toy.

The leading object of the present invention may be said to provide a simple, efficient and comparatively inexpensive toy of the character stated which in add'ition'to furnishing amusement to a child affords the child sufficient exercise to promote exhiliaration in the open air the advantages of which are readily apparent.

A further object of the present invention to provide an arrangement, connection and combination of parts for attaining the results sought by the leading object.

Further and other objects of the invention will appear hereinafter.

The invcnton consists of the novel contruction hereinafter described and finally claimed.

The nature, charactristic features and scope of the invention will be more fully understeod from the following description taken in connection with the accompanying drawings forming part hereof, and in which:

Fig. l is a view in side elevation partly sectioned illustrating a toy embodying features of the invention.

Fig. 2 is a top or plan view thereof.

Figs. 3 and l are respectively fragmentary views in elevation of the ratchet devices shown in Fig. 2.

Fig. 5 is a view in transverse section taken upon the line 5-5 of Fig. 1; and

Fig. 6 is a view in transverse section taken upon the line 66 of Fig. 1'. M

For the purpose of illustrating my invention I have shown in the accompanying drawings one form thereof which is at pres ent preferred by me, since the same has been found in practice to give satisfactory and reliable results although it is to be understood that the various instrument-alities of which my invention consists can be variously arranged and organized and that my invention is not limited to the precise arrangement and organization of the instrun'ientalities as herein shown and described.

Referring to the drawings in detail and with especial reference to Figs. 1 and 2, the reference numenl 1. designates the body or supporting frame of the toy, and is provided at its rear with an axle 2 provided with trac- Serial No. 120,666.

tion wheels 3. The forward portion of the frame 1 is provided with an axle 4: provided with knuckle joints 5 connected with steering wheel 6 the steering of said wheel 6 be ing effected by a steering wheel 7 the entire structure being very similar to that of an automobile. To the rear of the axle .t are a pair of short shafts 8 suitably supported and each provided with afriction cone 9, which friction cones are operatively connected with a drum 1O sothatduring retrograde 1nov'- ment of one friction cone 9 the drum is being moved in the direction of the arrow in Fig. 1 by the other friction cone 9. The drum 10 is provided with sprocketwheel 11 and connecting this sprocket wheel 11 and a sprocket wheel 12 on shaft .Zis a sprocket chain 13 so that as the pair of shafts 8 are rotated by mechanism about to be described, positive movement of rear axle 2 is maintained in the direction of the arrow shown in Fig. l to propel the toy in a forward direction. intermediate the laterally extended shafts 8 and the rear axle 2 is arranged a rock shaft 14, it being understood that the shafts 8, rock shaft 14, and axle 2 are all rotatably supported by the tran'ie 1. Fixed to the rock shaft 14 at each side of the casing 1 is a bell crank lever 15, each of which bell crank levers 15 are provided with a foot rest- 16. The opposite end of each bell crank lever 15 has its forward portion notched to provide teeth. 17 the extreme lower end of each bell crank lever 15 being provided with a coun tel-weight 18. Each section of shaft 8 has fixed thereto a member 19 having opposed notched or toothed portions 20 and opposed plain sufaces 21. In order to maintain the bell crank levers 15 in cooperative relation with respect to the members 19 use is made of coiled springs 22 which are interposed between a bell crank lever and a support fixed to the bottom of housing or casing 1.

In use a child stands upon the foot pedals 16 and grasps the steering wheel 7. As the child alternately depresses the foot pedals 16 the teeth of the bell crank levers 15 cooperatively engage the teeth 20 of the memhere 19 to propel forward the vehicle by means of the sprocket chain 13. In the con nection it will be observed that while't-he foot workof the operator produces an alternate movement of the shafts 8 a continuous movement of the rear axle is obtained. Thus, after depression ofa foot pedal 16 llll) teeth over said plain surface the other foot pedal is being operated to mesh with the teeth of the opposite member 19 to propel the vehicle forward.

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

1. In a device of the character stated, a body provided with a rear axle having sprocket wheel and including a pair of traction wheels, a pair of forward wheels including a steering wheel for said body, a cross-shaft having a pair of mutilated toothed wheels and a sprocket wheel, a sprocket chain connecting said sprocket wheels. a rock shaft and a pair of spring pressed bell-crank levers upon said rock shaft one end of. each lever having a foot pedal and the opposite end of each lever being toothed for engagement with a toothed wheel, whereby the operator may stand upon said pedals and maintain his balance by grasping said steering Wheel.

2. In a'device of the character stated, a body substantially symbolic of an automobile provided with a rear axle having a central sprocket wheel and including a pair of traction wheels, a pair of forward Wheels including a central steering wheel for and projected above said body, a forward crossshaft having a pair of toothed wheels and asprocket wheel arranged intermediate said toothed wheels, a sprocket chain con necting said sprocket wheels, a rock shaft arranged intermediate said sprocket wheels, and a pair of bell-crank levers upon said rock shaft, said levers being arranged upon opposite sides of said sprocket chain and one end of each lever having a horizontal foot pedal, and the opposite end of each lever being toothed for engagement with a toothed wheel, whereby the operator may stand upon said horizontal pedals and maintain his balance by grasping said steering wheel.
