John S. Gilbraith, In, Ohio 7 Application January. 24, 1939, Serial No. 252,810

This inventionrelates todolls. A general object of the invention is to provide a doll having means for exuding liquids therefrom when a portion of the doll is com- Dressed.

A particular object of the invention is to pro- Vide a dollof-simpie, inexpensive construction having novel means therein for exuding liquid atthe eyes thereof insimulation of the act of 1 Other objects of the invention will be manifest x from the following brief description and the accompanying drawing. Of theaccompanying drawing:

- Figure 1 is a rear view, partly broken away and in section, of a doll having'the improved structure embodying the invention incorporated therewith. I

Figure 2 is a cross-section substantially on line 22 of Figure 1.

Figure 3 Figure 1.

Figure 4 is an enlarged fragmentary detail,

partly in section, of the check valve in collapsed or closed condition for preventing return of liquid through the feed pipe to the mouth of the doll.

Figure 5 is a view similar to Figure 4, but further sectioned to show the valvein condition to allow passage of fluid to. the fluid receptacle.

' Figure 6 is a fragmentary view ofa portion of the dolls face showing location of the tear ducts adjacent the comers of the eyes.

Referring to Figures 1, and 2 of the drawing, the numeral Hi may be a hollow torso of flexible or resilient material, such as rubber, and having a male neck joint II for a ball and socket connection with a preferably hollow head l2, the latter being retained on the torso by an integral flange ll. Legs II, It and arms'IS, i6 may be attached to the torso in any suitable manner.

A preferably relatively flat receptacle l6 of impervious, elastic or resilient material, such as rubber, may be mounted within the torso and retained against the back wall thereof by any suitable means, as for example by means of lugs 11,

is a cross-section on line 3- 3 of 3 claim (01. 40-141) i1 and a rib integralwith the wall of the torso. A relatively still or rigid plate ll may be inserted between receptacle l8 'and lugs I! to provide a backing for the receptacle when it is squeezed or compressed for purposes subsequently to be described.

Extending downwardly from a mouth opening IS in head; i2maybe a conduit or feed pipe 20, the other end of which is' attached to the inner wall of receptacle i6 and communicates with the interior thereof. Conduit 20 preferably extends into receptacle" tohave attached thereto a check valve 2|. This check valve may comprise a relatively small; thin rubber, bag or sac 22 attached to the end 'of conduit 20 at 23 inany suitable manner, and is provided with a small opening 24 for passage of fluid from conduit 20 into receptacle l8 by gravity. Bag 22 normally remains in collapsed condition, as shown in' Figures 2 and 4, to prevent return of fluid back through conduit from receptacle l8, and any additional intemai pressure in the receptacle further tends to retain the valve 2| in the collapsed or-closed condition. Fluid poured into mouth opening I!) flows into bag 22 to distend'the same, asshown in Figure 5, allowing the fluid to pass through opening 24 and into receptacle I8.

A conduit 28 may be attached to receptacle l6, at a point beneath valve 2|, to communicate with -.the interior'of the receptacle, and may extend upwardly to communicate with the top of a relatively small chamber 21 within head 12, adjacent simulations of eyes 28, 28. A pair of 'ducts 29, 29 provide passages for fluid from a pocket 2?, in the'bottom of chamber 21, to the exterior of the head at points preferably at the corners of the eyes 28. A suitable opening 30 may be provided in the top of chamber 21 to prevent receptacle i6 from remaining collapsed when it is compressed to expel liquid therefrom. In addition opening 20 prevents the liquid from squirting from ducts 28 when receptacle IB is compressed, by relieving the back pressure in chamher 21, and allows'liquid trapped in pocket 21' PICS- fluid. When fluid 25 has accumulated in the receptacle l8 pressure applied to the receptacle,

as by slapping or otherwise compressing the back wall of the torso l against the inherent' yielding resistance thereof, will force quantities of the liquid through conduit 26 into the pocket 21 of chamber 21, from which it will trickle slowly through the conduits 29 to exude in the form of tear-like drops at the corners of the eyes 28. When the receptacle I6 is thus compressed fiuid is prevented from exuding from the mouth opening l9 by check-valve 2!. v

The features of the tear-crying d'oll "may be combined with the features of a doll of the wetting type, by providing a relatively small opening 20' in conduit 20 through which small quantities of the liquid poured into the mouth opening l9 may drop by gravitytto a receptacle 32 in the bottom of the torso. The liquid in receptacle 32v upon reaching the level of a small hole 33 in the wall of the torso will trickle out in the usual on said torso, said head having a mouth opening and simulations of eyes therein, a compressible receptacle for containing liquid in said torso and operable when compressed to force liquid therefrom, means for conveying liquid from said mouth opening to said receptacle, a relatively small vented chamber in said head having ducts extending therefrom to points adjacent said eyes,

and means for conveying liquid from said receptacle to said chamber by compressing said receptacle, the liquid in said chamber thereby being relatively uncompressed and exuded in small quantities through said ducts in simulation of crying-tears.

2. A doll comprising a hollow torso of yieldable, elastic, or resilient material, a head connected on saidtorso, said head having a mouth-opening and simulations of eyes therein, a compressible receptacle for containing liquid mounted in said torso to be compressed by applying yielding pressure to the torso adjacent said receptacle, means for supplying liquid from said mouth-opening to said receptacle, a valve associated with said supplying means for permitting liquid to flow therefrom by gravity into said receptacle but preventing return of said liquid through said supplying means, a relatively small vented chamber in said head having ducts extending to points adjacent said eyes, and means for conveying liquid from said receptacle-to said chamber by compression of the receptacle, the liquid being relatively uncompressed in said chamber to exude by gravity through said ducts in simulation of crying-tears. a

3. A doll comprising a hollow torso of yieldable, elastic, or resilient material, a head connected on said torso, said head having a mouth-opening and simulations of eyes therein,'a compressible receptacle "for containing liquid mounted in said torso to be compressed by applying yielding pressure to the torso adjacent said receptacle, means forsupplying liquid from said mouth-opening to said receptacle, a valve associated with said supplying means for permitting liquid to flow therefrom by gravity into said receptacle but preventing return of said liquid through said supplying means, a relativelysmall vented chamber in said head having ducts extending to points adjacent said eyes, and means for conveying liquid from said receptacle to said chamber by compression of the receptacle, said liquid being relatively uncompressed in said chamber to exude by gravity through said ducts in simulation of crying-tears, said chamber having a vent opening therein above the normal liquid level therein.
