UNITED STATES FRITZ PICHLEB, OF NEW YORK, N. Y.
SOUNDING TOY.
Application filed September 28, 1926. Serial No. 138,231.
This invention relates to improvements i sound toys, particularly in devices for imitating the v ices of animals, and more particularly to a device for imitating the cackl of hens and the crowing of cocks or roos ei and it is the principal object of my inv tion to produce a device for the amusement of old and young which is extremely simple in its construction and consequently cheap to manufacture.
Another object of my invention is the provision of a toy of this character which can be all easily operated by children even, and in which a reinforced diaphragm is vibrated by means of a rosin-covered or saturated string through the proper manipulation of the operators fingers.
A further object of the invention is the provision of a toy of the musical type having a cylindrical body of suitable dimensions and made from material best suited to the purpose, such as card-board, thin metal or the like, one end of which is closed by means of a diaphragm made of fish-skin, sheep-skin, parchment, ichty-ocol or the like suitable material, and which is reinforced by a pad of similar material on its inner face. A still further object of my invention is the provision of a toy imitating the noises made by domestic fowl equipped with a string made of cotton, silk or the like material coated with or saturated with rosin or a similar suitable friction developing material fastened at one end to the diaphragm, while its other end, is adapted to be engaged by the fingers of the operator which have previously been powdered with rosin or the like or by means of a rosin covered piece of cardboard or the like held by the fingers and brought into engagement with the string or cord by sliding it along the same in tie direction of its free end in intervals of varying length, as for instance three short and one long period for imitating the crowing of a rooster as represented by the syllables ki-ke-ri-kii These and other objects and advantages of my invention will become more fully known as the description thereof proceeds, and will then be specifically defined in the appended claim.
In the accompanying drawing forming a material part of this disclosure:
Fig. 1 shows in perspective view a toy constructed according to my invention illustrating its use or operation.
Fig. 2 is a longitudinal, sectional side. elevation of the toy showing its interior and the string as well as the manner of securing the same.
Fig. 3 is a longitudinal section {l'llOZlQfll part of the string on an enla= ed scale.
As illustrated, my novel toy consists of a cylindrical. body 10 of cardboard thin metal or the like material, the interior of which is hollow, while its outer face may be colored in any desired manner or provided with advertising matter or suitable directions for the use of the toy or the like. The body 10 is preferably made 3 inches long and has a diameter of about 2 inches, however these dimensions are given as an example only and may be changed according to necessity and desire. One end of the cylinder 10 is closed by a diaphragm 11 secured to the cylinder end in any suitable manner at its outer periphery. lVithin the cylinder, the diaphragm or the like 11 is reinforced by means of a centrally located pad 12 or the like of the same material as the diaphragm, as for instance fishskin, sheepskin, parchment or the like which is smaller than the diaphragm and secured to the same at its inner face by any suitable means or held against the diaphragm .by means of the knot 13 at the inner end of the string 14 passed through the diaphragm to the outside of the cylinder with its free end 15. This string is either saturated with rosin or coated with rosin, as indicated at 16, Figure 3.
In operation, the cylinder 10 is held by the fingers of one hand, as indicated at 17, Figure 1, while the fingers 18 of the other hand grip the string between them also as indicated in Figure 1. It is to be understood that the string gripping fingers must preferably be coated with rosin or the like friction developing substance, and if now the fingers gripping the string are quickly moved along the same in the direction of its free end, sounds will be produced similar to the noises made by domestic fowl such as hen and rooster, and the proper timing of the intervals in which the string gripping fingers are moved, for instance three short, and one long period following thereafter, the crowing of a rooster will cleverly be imitated much to the amusement of old and young.
It is to be understood that I have described and shown as an example only one of the many ways to practically construct my device, and that such changes as come within the scope of the appended claim may be made in the relative arrangement of the parts of my device and in its construction without departure from the gist and spirit of my invention and the principles involved.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:
As an article of manufacture a' sound producing toy for imitating the noises made by domestic fowl comprising a hollow cylinder, an outer coating for said cylinder, a vibrating means such as parchment, secured at one end of said cylinder to close the same,
a reinforcing member within said cylinder in rear of said diaphragm, and a string coated with a friction producing material and secured at one end within said cylinder behind said vibrating means, and reinforcing member and passed through the same to the outside of the cylinder to be operated by the fingers of the operator coated with a friction developing material to produce sounds in
