Abstract

The present invention discloses a variety combining block which comprises: a first block unit and a second block unit; wherein the second block unit joints to a through hole of a center of the first block unit; the peripheries of the first block unit and the second block unit are respectively provided with grooves, and the first block unit cannot only joint to each other, the first block unit or the second block unit can also joint to each other by grooves on peripheries thereof.

Description

    BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • a) Field of the Invention
  • The present invention relates to a variety combining block and more particularly to a game apparatus comprising a block unit in the shape of gear, which can be jointed to each other to form various game apparatus.
  • b) Description of the Prior Art
  • Most conventional blocks are only equipped with functions of assembling and stacking. Although children can enjoy fun of game when stacking and assembling the blocks, a basic mechanical principle of fitting the blocks with gears is not available to trigger a sense of touch and a visual feeling for the children; therefore, the conventional blocks are unable to increase a sensitivity of sense and enriched creativity for the children.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • The primary object of the present invention is to provide a variety combining block, comprising a combining block formed of first block unit and second block unit in the shape of gears; wherein a center of the first block unit is provided with a circular through hole, and the second block unit can be fitted by the through hole. Further, the peripheries of the first block unit and the second block unit both are provided with grooves, the different block units cannot only be joint to each other, the same block units can also be joint to each other to form various game apparatus, thereby achieving a purpose of incorporating teaching with play.
  • To enable a further understanding of the said objectives and the technological methods of the invention herein, the brief description of the drawings below is followed by the detailed description of the preferred embodiments.
  • BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS
  • FIG. 1 shows a schematic view of the present invention.
  • FIG. 2 shows an exploded elevational view of the present invention.
  • FIG. 3 shows a schematic view of a first embodiment of the present invention.
  • FIG. 4 shows a schematic view of a second embodiment of the present invention.
  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS
  • Referring to FIG. 1 and FIG. 2, the variety combining block of the present invention comprises: a first block unit 10 in a shape of gear, whereby a center of the first block unit 10 is provided with a circular through hole 11 with at least one tooth 111. The periphery of the first block unit 10 is provided with at least one groove 12; and a second block unit 20 in a shape of gear, whereby a periphery of the second block unit 20 is provided with at least one groove 21, and at least one perforation 221 is installed on a projection 22 between the adjacent grooves 21. Further, the second block unit 20 can be inserted into the through hole 11 of the first block unit 10, whereby the tooth 111 of the first block unit 10 is jointed in the perforation 221 of the second block unit 20.
  • Referring to FIG. 3, two sets of the same structures of the first block units 10 of the present invention are jointed by the grooves 12 between the first block units 10 to form a game combination.
  • Referring to FIG. 4, a plurality of the first block units 10 of the present invention are not only jointed to each other by means as shown in FIG. 3, the through hole 11 on the center of the first block unit 10 is also jointed to the second block unit 20. Furthermore, the groove 12 on the periphery of the first block unit 10 is jointed to the groove 21 on the periphery of the second block unit 20; and the same second block units 20 are jointed to each other by the grooves 21 on the peripheries thereof to form various block combinations.
  • Conclusive from the above, in accordance with the above description of the embodiments of the present invention, the arrangement and combination of the first block unit and the second block unit having two different shapes can allow the children to stack into all kinds of various shapes, which not only can enable the children to develop creativity of stacking the blocks, but can enlighten the simple mechanical knowledge for the children, thereby achieving the object of edutainment.
  • It is of course to be understood that the embodiments described herein is merely illustrative of the principles of the invention and that a wide variety of modifications thereto may be effected by persons skilled in the art without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention as set forth in the following claims.

Claims (3)

1. A variety combining block, comprising:
a first block unit having a through hole on a center thereof, at least one tooth within the through hole, and at least one groove on periphery of the first block unit;
