I

If "In the accompanying-drawings i Fig. l is a view of the toy showing "the portion as carrying designating characters "f F'g.

(Also; in the construction oflny improvedtoy I arrange the toneproducingor voice device so that the weight altho loosely mounted is preferably so guided limited in its lmoyement that it cannot pass the centenof, the sphere thus insuring the ball'being rolled back to" its. normal or stable position after having" been rolled from such position. Also by sosecuringgthis weighted tone device tothe inner surface of the shell'to-one side of the center; the device being in spherical 'shape' when rolled about children and the following, is a; detailed de Fi 5 s a b t om awe? i h -tp u mg device showing the v reed'jas mounted on o 4 7 onflth floor will produce j'a cu'rious', wabblingr motion; which again renders it attractive to 70 I lpid i d S ppo ti r on or thisshell. .To'the inner invention and showing one shape of toy by which these advantageous results may beaccomplished.

'With reference to the drawings, designates a spherical shell which may be formed of celluloid or other suitable material and is preferably made in halves, the upper half 11 surface of the shell.

This tone produ'cing deyice Fherein iillustra-ted. comprises essentially a ltub'ula'rl body l6' hav' perforated liead17' atone "end made in the formfoffla c'ap 'onihoqa,

f and an ai'r tightih 'ad" 18 at its opposite end ,Bellows. 2O"v is Iforrned preferably lberized. fabric ..having its lower Ledge Cemented between the flange 19 o'fi-the lower cap .and,the. lower edge. of the tube. 16, :which rendersthis joint airtight. The upper edge .of the bellows fabric is .cementedas fat 21 a y I do-wn turndfiange 22,;olf-1the 1 weight'23and'the the; reed" platei25, wherebylthis. edgefis also s between .the.

The cup-shaped weight 2-3 isprovided with ,afltop opening 27 .and ,is;loosely.,n1ounted. to move freely in (the tube.

In other instances, it isvfound of importance to minimize the chances of rupture at this pointof connection by providing a flexibleor yieldable connecting memberbetween attachment mg this result is to provide a flexible cup 30 in Fig. 6 of the drawings, which may be formed of rubber or other suitable fleiible rriateri alanrl thru which the voice device. is conneotedto theinner wall oftheshell '14,wherby.iwhen the ball is dropp e dthis connecti'on wiuyiera and not beirupturedf Ihave'fherein shown and described 'ft-he actuating weightin the tone 'device as also 185 serving as a counterbalance} to 'f'return the shell'tostableposition, but insome instances a separate weightmaybe place'din the shell to" ion the shell back to its stable position.
