the doll in a novel manner.

Patented Nov. 28, 1944 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE PAPER DOLL SET AND THE LIKE George Wakefield, Vermilion, Ohio Application July 28, 1943, Serial No. 496,423

2 Claims. (Cl. 46'157) This invention relates, as indicated, to paper doll sets and .the like, but has reference more particularly, to a novel method of and means for attaching dresses and other items of wearing apparel to the dolls of such sets.

It has heretofore been customary to sell sets comprising a paper doll in partially clothed condition, and a plurality of dresses and other items of wearing apparel, which may be attached to the doll by means of bent tabs which are usually formed integrally with such dresses or other items of wearing apparel. These sets are generally unsatisfactory, for several reasons. In the first place, it is difflcult to maintain the tabs bent in a manner which is effective to hold the dresses on the doll, and it is diflicult to conceal the tabs when the dresses are mounted on the doll. Moreover, the tabs are easily torn off, so that the dresses cannot be attached to the doll.

The present invention has as its primary object the provision of a paper doll set of the foregoing I character, in which the use of tabs, with their attendant disadvantages, is eliminated, and novel magnetic means employed instead for attaching the dresses and other items of apparel.

Another object of the invention is to provide a paper doll set of the character described, in which magnetic dress holding means. are embedded in A further object of the invention is to provide a paper doll set of the character described in which the dresses and other items of wearing apparel have novel means associated therewith for removably attaching such items to the doll.

Other objects and advantages of the invention will be apparent during the course of the following description. A

In the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, and in which like numerals are employed to designate like parts throughout the same,

Fig. 1 is a view of a partially-clothed paper doll of a doll set constructed in accordance with the invention;

Fig. 2 is a cross-sectional view, taken on the line 2-2 of Fig. 1;

Fig. 3 is a fragmentary rear view of the doll of Fig. 1;

Fig. 4 is a view of one item of wearing apparel which is to be attached to the doll of Fig. 1;

Fig. 5 is a cross-sectional view, taken on the line 5-5 of Fig. 4;

Fig. 6 is a fragmentary rear view of the item of Fig. 4;

. such magnets having their poles I and 4' dis- Fig. 7 is a view similar to Fig. 4, but showings different item of wearing apparel, and

Fig. 8 is a cross-sectional view taken on the line 8-8 of Fig. 7.

Although the drawings show only two items of wearing apparel, it will be understood that a doll set constructed in accordance with the invention, usually includes several other items of apparel, such as blouses, sweaters, jackets, etc.

Referring more particularly to Figs. 1, 2 and 3 of the drawings, it will be seen that the basic item or doll of the set comprises a base l of heavy cardboard, plywood, or like material, having the general outline or contour, of the doll, and a representation 2, usually in colors printed or lithographed on thin paper and adhesively secured to the base I, such representation having the same outline or contour as the base.

Embedded in the base I and secured thereto as by a layer 3 of glue or other suitable adhesive, is a pair of vertically-spaced permanent magnets 4, preferably formed from a highly magnetic alloy,

posed as closely as possible to the front face of the base I, and being entirely concealed by the front layer or layers of cardboard or plywood. If desired, the magnets may have their poles disposed substantially fiush with the front face of case a dress, consists of a representation of such item printed or lithographed in colors on thin paper, and provided on the rear face I thereof with a pair of vertically-spaced metallic discs or armatures 8 formed preferably of tin plate, and spaced to correspond with the spacing of the magnets 4. These discs, being of rather light gauge metal, and relatively light in weight, may be adhesively secured to the rear face I.

When the child wishes to apply the dress of Fig. 4 to the doll of Fig. 1, it merely overlays the to present any difliculty when the child wishes tostrip the dress from the doll.

- manner as that shown in Figs. 4, 5 and 6, so that further description of these figures is unneces- It is thus seen that I hav provided a paper doll set which overcomes all of the disadvantages inherent in a set in which tabs are employed to secure the various items of wearing apparel to the doll..

By extending the magnets as closely as possible to the front face of the base I, a maximum degree of magnetic attraction is utilized to support the dresses, and by making the steel discs 8 of light gauge metal, the weight of the dresses and other items of wearing apparel is brought to a desired minimum. i

It is to be understood that the form of my invention, herewith shown and described, is to be taken as a preferred example of the same, and that various changes in the shape, size and arrangement of parts may be resorted to, without departing from the spirit or my invention, or the scope of the subjoined claims.

Having thus described my invention, I claim:

1. In a set of the character described, a doll comprising a base of cardboard, plywood or the like, having the general outline or contour of the doll, said base having an opening therein extending completely therethrough, a magnet adhesively secured to said base and disposed in said opening and having poles lying substantially flush with the front face of said base, a thin sheet of paper adhesively secured to the front face of said base and covering the magnets, said sheet having the same contour as the base and bearing representations of the doll's features on the front face thereof, and a thin sheet of material representing dolls clothing, said clothing sheet carrying. a metallic member so as to be attracted to the magnet through said paper sheet, said metallic,member being thin, flat and light in weight so as notto add materially to the thickness or weight of said clothing sheet.

= 2. In a set of the character described, a base of cardboard or the like having the outline of a doll or similar figure, said base having spaced openings therein and extending completely therethrough, magnets carried by the base in said openings and having poles lying substantially flush with the front face of said base, a-thln sheet of paper secured to the front'face of said base and covering the magnet poles, said sheet having the same contour as the base and bearing representations of the doll's features on the front face thereof, and a sheet of material representing the doll's clothing, said clothing sheet carrying spaced metallic members corresponding to the spacing of the magnets so as to be attracted thereto through said sheet of paper, said metallic members being thin, flat and light in weight so as not to add materially to the thickness or weight of said clothing sheet.

GEORGE P. WAKEFIELD.
