DOLL

Filed May 29, 1957 jzeimeth/P Hqgatrz,

Patented Mar. 15, 1938 UNITED STATES PATENT. OFFICE to Hogan Invention, Inc., Philadelphia, corporation of Pennsylvania Pa., a

Application May 29, 1937, Serial No. 145,577

4 Claims.

The object of this invention is to provide a doll of novel, inexpensive and advantageous construction, having simulated eyes and provided with means operable to cause a liquid to be exuded from within the doll body in the regions of the inner corners of the eyes in simulation of the natural act of crying or weeping.

The invention resides in the novel construction, combination and arrangement of the parts of the doll whereby the object is accomplished, as will be hereinafter described and claimed.

In the accompanying drawing, illustrating the invention,

Figure 1 is a front view of a doll showing one form of embodiment of the invention.

Figure 2 is a vertical section of the doll, on line 2-2 of Fig. 1.

Figure 3 is a front view, of one of the simulated eyes of the doll and adjacent parts, enlarged.

Figure 4 is a section on line 4-4 of Fig. 3.

In the form of embodiment of the invention herein illustrated, the doll comprises a hollow body 2 having a partition wall 3 therein.

The entire body 2 and the partition 3 therein are formed of yieldable, resilient rubber of such character that if any part thereof be pressed out of its normal contour or shape, as illustrated, such part will automatically return to its normal contour or shape by the resilient action of the rubber after the deforming pressure has been removed.

The hollow body is suitably formed in simulation of a child or baby having simulated eyes 5, 5; and the partition wall 3 is located below the plane of the eyes and divides the interior of the hollow body 2 into a lower chamber 6 and an upper closed chamber 1.

The lower chamber 6 is in communication with the outside air through a suitable whistle or sound producing device 8 set in the wall of the bottom of one foot of the doll and constructed to permit air to pass slowly from within the chamber 6 when the lower portion of the body 2 is compressed, and to permit air to flow into the chamber under the resilient action of body 2 in resuming its normal condition after the lower portion thereof has been compressed and released. The device 8 may be of any desired character and it may be constructed to produce the sound or sounds of a child or baby crying as air passes through the same either into or from within the chamber 6, or both.

The upper chamber I is constructed to receive and contain a quantity of liquid, such as water, indicated at I 0.

The rubber wall forming the body of the doll is provided with slits 9, 9 in the regions of the inner corners of the eyes 5, 5. The slits may be formed by cutting or puncturing the solid rubber wall with a thin, sharp blade. The slits extend through the rubber wall, and the opposing walls of each slit are normally in contact or in sufll-' ciently close, relationship to prevent the water within the chamber 1 from accidentally passing through the slits during the ordinary handling of the doll; and the slits provide normally closed passages through which the water ill or other liquid may pass from within or into the chamber l, under conditions and for purposes presently described.

When the lower portion of the ,doll is compressed by hand to reduce the size of the lower chamber 6 therein, the air pressure within the chamber 6 is thereby increased, causing such pressure to act against the yieldable partition or diaphragm 3 and raise it and thereby increase the pressure within the upper chamber l. The increased pressure thus produced within' the chamber 1 causes the slits 9, 9 to open slightly and some of the water within the chamber to be exuded through the slits in simulation of natural tears flowing from the eyes 5, 5, thereby producing the effect of a weeping or crying doll. The effect of continuous weeping or crying may be produced by successive operations of com- 0 pressing and releasing the lower portion of the doll body.

To enhance the effect of weeping or crying produced by the flow of water from the eyes in simulation of tears, the sound producing device 8 may be constructed to produce sounds in imitation of the sounds produced by a baby or child when weeping or crying, when air is forced through the device 8 by the compression of the air within the chamber 6 when the lower portion of the doll body is compressed, and when outside air returns to the chamber 6 through the device 8 by the resilient walls of the chamber resuming their normal condition after the lower portion of the doll body has been compressed and released. The sound producing device 8 is constructed so that it will not permit the air within the chamber 6 to pass through the device 8 with sufilcient freedom to interfere with the action of the air within the chamber 6 on the partition or diaphragm 3 for causing the water within the chamber 1 from being exuded therefrom through the slits 9, 9, as previously explained.

After the water ID has been discharged from within the chamber 1, the chamber may be replenished with water by compressing the upper portion 01' the head of the doll by hand to reduce the size of the chamber 1, and by immersing the head in a suitable body of water and then releasing the head and thereby permitting the resilient walls of the chamber to create suction within the chamber 1 and draw water into the same through the slits 9, 9, as such walls resume their normal condition or contour.

I claim:

1. A doll comprising a body having a closed chamber constructed to receive and contain a liquid and having a passage provided with means preventing the discharge of liquid from the chamber below the liquid level therein and permitting the discharge of liquid from the chamber only when the pressure within the chamber is increased, and means operable to increase the pressure within the chamber.

2. A doll comprising a body having a closed chamber constructed to receive and contain a liquid, the wall of said chamber having a part formed of resilient rubber having a substantially closed passage having a yieldable wall permitting the passage to open and liquid to be discharged therethrough from within the chamber when the pressure within the chamber is increased, and means operable to increase the pressure within the chamber.

3. A doll comprising a hollow body formed of yieldable rubber and having simulated eyes and having a yieldable rubber partition extending below the plane 01. said eyes and dividing said body into a lower chamber and a closed upper chamber constructed to receive and contain a liquid, the wall oi said upper chamber having substantially closed passages in the regions of the inner corners of said eyes normally preventing liquid from passing therethrough and permitting liquid to pass therethrough from within the upper chamber when the pressure therein is increased by compressing the hollow body below said partition.

4. A doll comprising a hollow body formed of yieldable rubber and having simulated eyes and having a yieldable rubber partition extending below the plane of said eyes and dividing said body into a lower chamber and a closed upper chamber constructed to receive and contain a liquid, the wall of said upper chamber having slits extending therethrough in the regions of the inner corners of said eyes, said slits constituting substantially closed passages normally preventing liquid from passing therethrough and permitting liquid to pass therethrough from within the upper chamber when the pressure therein is increased by compressing the hollow body below said partition.
