DOLL
Filed Dec. 6, 1928 Patented Apr. 1, 1930 warren STATES PATENT OFFICE CHARLES STEIN AND WILLIAM M. HELLER, OF ATLANTIC CITY, NEW JERSEY DOLL Application filed December The object of our invention is to provide an entertaining and otherwise attractive doll,one which will not only excite the pleased interest of children, but also of adults. The basic feature of our invention resides in two dolls joined together in dancing posture with suitable leg joints, so that when dangled by means of a string in contact with the floor or other horizontal supporting surface, the motion of two dancers will be reproduced or simulated.
The invention consists in whatever is described by or is included within the terms or scope of the appended claims.
In the drawings:
Fig. 1 is a perspective view of an arrange ment of dolls embodying our invention;
Fig. 2 is a horizontal section in the plane of the arms;
Fig. 3 is a detail view of one of the feet;
Fig. 4; is a horizontal section similar to Fig. 2 showing a different way of connecting the two dolls.
In what we now consider the most satisfactory embodiment of our invention, we construct two complete dolls each consisting of head, body, arms and legs, one being a girl doll, 10, and the other a boy doll, 11, and each being appropriately dressed and held 30 together in the conventional or familiar dancing posture face to face by means of the arms of the two figures, one arm of one partially embracing the ,pther with the hand overlapping the back and secured to the back as by means of stitching, but preferably snap buttons and the other two arms of the respective figures being outstretched with the hands brought together and secured together as by means of snap buttons or stitching so that the arms and hands, while being given the conventional dancing positions, are utilized to unite the two figures together. Each figure or doll has for each leg a joint, 12, at the hip which allows motion of the leg corresponding to the motion of the human leg at the hip and each has a knee joint, 13, and each has an ankle joint, 14, with a foot, 15, the joint extending longitudinally and the foot having a broad, fiat sole so as to assure ready movement of the foot on the ankle 6, 1928. Serial No. 324,172.
joint. However, the foot construction may be any customary or other desired construction.
As we have stated We preferably detachably connect the two dolls as by means of the familiar snap buttons, 16, secured to the overlapping hands in one case and the hand and body in the other case. A detachable connection between the dolls is a very attractive feature because of the appeal it makes to children due to their ability to disconnect the dolls and again to connect them, and in also enabling different poses to be given the two dolls as for example by leaving unconnected their outstretched arms and hands and connecting them only where an arm overlaps the back of another. As shown in Fig. 4, however, the connection may be a permanent one as by means of stitches, 17, passing through the overlapping hands and through the hands lying against the backs.
Attached to the combined figure between the two heads is a cord or string, 18, from which, by reason of this point of attachment, the two figures hang in a balanced state which is desirable to secure the appropriate dancing movement of bodies and limbs, the result being that when the dolls are moved up and down suspended from the hand by the string and as a result of contact with the floor or other horizontal supporting surface, not only will the legs and feet go through characteristic dancing motions, but the two bodies will turn or revolve more or less in correspondence to the turning motions of human being in dancing.
Of course, for an ordinary use especially by children, the figures are of diminutive or doll size, but we do not restrict ourselves to any particular size or proportion of figures.
This application is, in part, a continuance of our application No. 312,666 filed October 15, 1928.
We claim:
1. An arrangement for dancing figures comprising two bodies joined together in dancing posture each with flexible legs, ending in feet, and means for suspending such figures for rotation about a vertical axis and imparting up and down movement to them, 100
the feet being free to contact with a horizontal surface and the suspending means permitting bodies and legs to turn and sway together.
2. An arrangement for dancing figures comprising two bodies joined together in dancing posture each with flexible legs, ending in feet, and means for suspending such figures for rotation about a vertical axis and imparting up and down movement to them, the figures having arms, certain of which embrace the bodies and which at the extremities are secured to the respective bodies the feet being free to. contact with a horizontal surface and the suspending means permitting bodies and legs to turn and sway together.
3. An arrangement for dancing figures comprising two bodies joined together in dancing posture each with flexible legs, ending in feet, and means for suspending such figures for rotation about a vertical axis and imparting up and down movement to them, the figures having arms, certain of which embrace the bodies and which at the extremities are secured to the respective bodies, the
gether at the extremities the feet being free to contact with a horizontal surface and the suspending means permitting bodies and legs to turn and sway together.
t. A toy doll comprising two figures each with members overlapping members of the other and detachably connected where they overlap, and means for suspending such figures for rotation about a vertical axis and imparting up and down movement to them.
5. A toy doll comprising two figures having body, flexible legs that end in feet and arm members, the extremities of the arm members having complementary detachable connecting devices and the bodies having complementary members of such devices, whereby the arm extremities overlapping the bodies may be detachably connected therewith, and the arm extremities overlapping one another may be detachably connected and means for suspending such figures for rotation around a vertical axis and imparting up and down movement to them, the feet being free to contact with a horizontal surface.
6. A toy comprising two figures each with members overlapping members of the other and cooperating-fastening means on the respectiveoverlapping members. where they overlap permitting ready detachment for separating the two figures from one another and readyattachment again to secure the two figures together, and means forsuspending the two connected figures for rotation about a vertical axis and imparting up and down movement to them.
7 An arrangement for dancing figures comprising two bodies joined together in dancing posture, each body corresponding to thehuman figure with arms and legs, the foot extremities of the legs being free to separately contact with a floor and means for suspending such joined figures for rotation about a vertical axis and imparting up and down movement to them, such suspending means permitting bodies and legs to turn and sway together with reference to said floor.
8. An arrangement for dancing figures comprising two bodies joined together in dancing posture, each body corresponding to the human figure with arms and legs, the foot extremities of the legs being free to separately contact with a floor, the legs being flexibly connected with the body for lateral movement, and means for suspending such joined figures for rotation about a vertical axis and imparting up and down movement to them, such suspending means permitting bodies and legs to turn and sway together with reference to said floor.
In testimony whereof we hereunto affix our signatures.
