- orslc` WHEELED TOY Alfred Finn, Leaside, and Louis Rostoker,

Toronto, Ontario, Canada Application July 13, 1945, serial No. 604,868

This invention relates to a wheeled'toyfconV` struc'ted to simulate the appearance, movement andsound of an animal, and more particularly toa novel sound producing mechanism to be used in conjunction therewith. Y

One object. of this invention is to provide a sound producing mechanism which is .capable'of producing intermittent sounds simulating animal voices, and which is actuated by the movement of the wheeled to" A Another object of this invention is to provide means whereby in a wheeled toy constructed to simulate the appearance of a bird, the rotation of the wheels simultaneously flaps its wings, opens and closes its jaws, and operates the lsound producing mechanism.

Another object of this invention is to provide means whereby an intermittent sound is produced only when the jaws ofthe animal body are open.

A further object of this invention is to provide a toy of the class described which is of simplified construction and is inexpensively manufactured.

Other objects of this invention will hereinafter appear in the detailed description of a preferred embodiment that follows and are illustrated in the accompanying drawing in which,

Figure 1 is a perspective View of a wheeled toy constructed to simulate a duck;

Figure 2 is a front elevation showing the mechanism;

Figure 3 is a side elevation of the sound producing mechanism;

Figure 4 is a perspective View of a wheel with a piece simulating a foot attached thereto; and

Figure 5 is a fragmentary front elevation showing the actuating mechanism for one wing.

In the drawing like numerals of reference indicate corresponding parts in the different figures.

In the drawing, I is a hollow body in the shape of a duck. The body I is provided at its forward end with a neck 2 and head 3, and at its rear end with a tail ll. The head 3 is formed with a forwardly extending upper bill 3a and has eyes on opposite sides thereof.

A crankshaft 5 having a, crank I'l therein extends through the body i, with a portion of the crankshaft extendingbeyoncl the body on both sides. The crankshaft is jcurnalled in circular openings 6 in both sides ofthe body. Wheels 'l are rigidly iiXed to the portions of the crankshaft extending beyond the body so that the rotation of the wheels rotates the crankshaft.

Wings 8 are hinged to the walls of the body at 9. Rods I0 are pivotally attached to the Wings at 2 claims. (C1. 46-104) Il, and are loosely connected by means of eyes at their other end on pins I 3 eccentrically mounted on the wheels. The rotation ofthe wheels causes the rods to raise and lower the wings in a flapping movement.

A lower jawvor bill I4 is hinged by means of a pin I5 to the head 3 of thebody. Projecting inwardly from the base of the bill within .the hollow head is a lug Illa. A rod i6 isxedat one end to the lug I4a and at the other end is ArotatablyV mounted on the U-shaped portion Il of the crankshaft 5. The rotation of the crankshaft due to the rotation of the wheels causes the rod I6 to pivot the lower bill I 4 about the pin I5 so as to open and shut the lower bill with respect to the upper bill 3a. A threaded coupling Ita is provided `on the rod I6 for adjusting the move-A ment of the bill.

The sound producing mechanism comprises a disc I8 attached Ito the crankshaft 5, inside the t hollow body by means of a forked strip of brass l8a soldered to the crankshaft and pinned to the disc, and a metal strip I9 fastened to a block 20 which is fixed to the interior wall of the body.

' Six spaced apart pins 2| project from the peripheral surface of .the disc I8 and are arranged in two series of three each, the spaces between the series being greater than the spaces between the projections within each series and one of the spaces between each series being considerably smaller than the other. The rotation of .the disc I8 with the crankshaft causes the pins ZI to impinge on the metal strip I9 and produce two intermittent sounds for each rotation of the disc.

By making the strip I9 of .015 inch spring steel, the block 26 of Bakelite, and the pins 2| of metal, the quack-quack sound of a duck can be produced.

By arranging the pins 2i along less than half the circumference of the disc I8 and by co-ordinating the motion of the rod i6 which opens and closes jaw or bill I4 with the mo-tion of the disc, the sound producing mechanism produces sounds simultaneously with the opening of the jaw or bill and only while the jaw is open. By co-ordinating the wing napping means with the sound producing mechanism the sounds will be emitted as the wings are raised as is the case with a live duck.

Pieces 22 of iiexible material, such as leather, shaped and marked to simulate ducks feet are secured in grooves 23 in each wheel 1. These pieces are so positioned on the wheel that they pass under the wings as the wings are in the raised position.

When the toy is pushed along a plane surface lby means of a stick 24, the rotation of the wheels aps the wings and simultaneously, by means of the crankshaft 5 which it rotates, opens and closes the jaw or bill I4 and produces the quackquacksound while the jaw is open by operating the sound producing mechanism.

While the invention has been drawn and described with reference to a specic embodiment, it is to be understood that it is not to be limited thereto, but is to be construed broadly and restricted solely by the scope of the appended claims.

What we claim as our invention is:

1. A toy comprising a body simulating a bird,

wheel means for supporting the body, a crankshaft including a crank adapted to be rotated the circumference of the disc and being arranged 4 in series, the spaces between the series being considerably longer than the spaces between the projections within each series, said projections being adapted to impinge in succession on the plate so as to produce intermittent sounds, the rotation of the wheels being adapted to simultaneously flap said wings, open and close the jaw, and operate the sound producing mechanism to produce intermittent sounds only when `the jaw is open.

2. A toy comprising a body simulating an animal, wheel means for supporting the body, a

' crankshaft adapted to be rotated by the rotation of the wheels, a vibratory plate member attached to the body, and a disc mounted so as to rotate with the crankshaft and having pins extending outwardly from its peripheral surface, said pins being equidistantly spaced apart in alignment along substantially less than half the circumference of the disc and being arranged in two series, the spaces between the series being considerably longer than the spaces between the pins within each series, and said pins being adapted to impinge in succession on the plate, and said plate not engaging any projections between said series so as to produce two separated sounds for every rotation of the disc.
