BALL BOUNCING PULL TOY Filed June 11, 1949 Patented Dec. 11, 1951 UNITED "sTAT s WW FFICE 2,578,579 BALL BOUNCING PULL TOY George Mysels, New York, N. Y.

Application June 11, 1949, Serial No. 99,556

This invention relates to new and useful improvements in roll-along'trundle toys, and, more particularly, the aim is to provide a novel and valuable such toy incorporating a wheeled underbody, transparent chambering means for one or more freely tossable objects, and means operating incidental to turning of the wheels during travel of the toy for tossing upward said object or objects. a

A feature of the invention is that in no sense are the one or more tossable objects present as captive or partially captive ones, but, on the contrary, said objects are freely tossable and so as to have unprevised trajectories within the limits of its or their transparent chamber or chambers.

For further comprehension of the invention, and of the objects and advantages thereof, reference will be had to the following description and accompanying drawings, and to the appended claims in which the various novel features of the invention are more particularly set forth.

In the accompanying drawings forming a material part of this disclosure:

Fig. 1 is a side elevational view of the roll-along toy constructed in accordance with the present invention.

Fig. 2 is a bottom plan view thereof.

Fig. 3 is a fragmentary vertical section taken on the line 33 of Fig. 2.

Fig. 4 is a side elevational view, partly in vertical section to reveal interior constructions, of the roll-along toy constructed in accordance with a modification of the present invention.

Fig. 5 is a bottom plan view of Fig. 4.

Fig. 6 is a horizontal sectional view taken on body l6, of glass, a suitable plastic or other transparent material, and, with such jar inverted to arrange its open mouth lowermost, there is fixedly connected to extend across its then bottom a. separate wall 11. The wall I! is shown as in the form of the central concave floor portion of a shallow-cuplike cap [8, as one stamped and 3 Claims. (01. 46--204) 2 drawn of thin sheet metal or made of a suitable plastic, and so having an encircling flange or rim. The cap I8 is attached to the body IS in any convenient way, either frictionally or as by fabricating said body to include an external integral circumferential bead l9, and by spinning said rim into lock engagement with the bead 19 as shown, if the cap is of metal, or by applying a suitable plastic-softener to said flange or rim and then reshaping the latter analogously relative to the bead l9, if the cap is of a plastic.

The interior of the single container incorporated in the embodiment now being described, such container providing a single chambering means according to the invention, may be used for confining therein, yet freely tossably therein, one or more otherwise non-captive tossable objects pursuant to the invention. As here shown, a single such object, 20, is provided; which latter is desirably a lightweight thin and elastic walled hollow sphere, constituted, ideally, as a standard ping pong or table tennis ball.

The wall 11 is slotted as at 2!, and fixedly carried by the axle II are a pair of oppositely projecting paddles 22, so that, as the two-wheeled cart is moved along by a child, as by way of a handle in the form of a pull or push rod 23 secured to the ball chambering container as indicated at 24 thereby to cause the wheels II) to rotate (if the rod 24 is used as a traction rod) in the direction of the arrow 25 of Fig. 3, said paddles whirl in the same direction, and on each half turn of the wheels one of the paddles will give an upward kick to the ball 29 and toss the same toward the top of its toss chamber.

The ball 29 may be white or variegatedly colored, and with said ball of the kind described, the same, each time it is thus kicked, will fly to the top of the toss chamber, strike the latter with a pleasing clicking sound, and then drop to bounce perhaps several times, with gradually diminishing loudness of the clicks occurring at the bouncings. These travels of the ball will be clearly seen, due to the transparent character of the body Hi.

In the modification of the invention shown in Figs. 4 to 7, the roll-along toy is characterized by a pair of chambers of containers arranged in tandem. Each of the containers 46 comprises an inverted transparent jar-like body 4| supported one behind the other on a frame 42. The frame 42 comprises a pair of cap-like members 43 arranged one behind the other and secured together by an integral connector member 44f The walls 45 which close the open bottoms of the jar-like bodies 4| are downwardly dished so that a ball 48, within each of the containers 48, normally seeks a position at the lowermost center of the wall under the influence of gravity. Each of the jar-like bodies 41 is secured in position within its respective cap-like member 43 by means of a cement 47 having an afiinity for the materials used to form the jar-like bodies and the cap-like members 43.

Diametrically opposite sides of each of the cap-like members 43 are formed with depending lug portions 48 through which the ends of shaft 49 rotatively extend. The ends of the shafts 49 are irregularly shaped and wheels '3 having irregularly shaped openings, corresponding to the shape of the ends of the shafts 49, are mounted on the ends of the shafts. The wheels 50 are retained in position by means of washers 5| and cotter pins 52, so that as the wheels turn the shafts 49 will also be rotated.

The bottom walls 45 of the cap-like members 43 are'formed with slots 53' extended at right angles to the shafts 49 and paddles 54" extend radially from opposite sides of the shafts 49 in alignment with the slots 53. Thus, as the shafts 49rotatethe paddles 54 will enter the slot and hit 'the'ball'4fi shooting it upward within the jarlike body 4!. The wheels'50 are formed with inwardly directed hub portions 50, see especially Fig. 7, which engage the outer faces of the depending lug portions 48 toretain the shafts 4'9 against longitudinalmovement and in a position in-which-the paddles 54 will-be aligned with the slots 53.

Extended: forward from the front cap-like member 43 there is an apertured ear 55. An elongated pull cord 56 has. one end attached to the. ear 55 and its other endprovided with a ball 57, see'Fig. 4, forming a grip by which the pull cord 56=can be conveniently used to pull the toy over a ground surface.

While I have illustrated and described the preferred embodiments of my invention, it is to be'understood that I donot limit myself to the precise constructions herein disclosed and the right is reserved. to all changes and modifications coming within the scope of the invention as defined in the appended claims.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by United States Letters Patent is:

1. In a pull toy having an open bottomed transparent container supported on. a rotative wheeled axle, a wall closing the open bottom of the container, said wall being formed over the axle with anelongated slot having its length extended at right angles to the length of the axle,

a freely tossable object within the container and rested on said wall, and means on the axle for entering the container through said slot as the axle rotates for intermittently striking and kicking said object upward within the container, said wall having a concave top surface converged toward said slot so that said object will seek a position over said slot to be struck by said means.

2. In a pull toy having an open bottomed transparent container supported on a rotative wheeled axle, a wall closin the open bottom of the container, said wall being formed over the axle with an elongated slot having its length extended at right angles to the length of the axle, a freely tossable object within the container andrested on said wall, and means on the axle for entering the container through said slot as the axle rotates for intermittently striking and kicking said object upward within the container, said wall having a concave top surface converged toward said slot so that said object will seek a position over said slot to be struck by said means,

said object being; a ball.

3. In a pull toy having an open bottomed transparent container supported on a rotative wheeled axle, a wall closing the open bottom of the container, said wall being formed over the axle with an elongated slot having its length extended at right angles to the length of the axle, a freely tossable object within the container and rested on said wall, and means on the axle for entering the container through said slot as the axle rotates for intermittently striking and kicking said object upward within the container, said wall having a concave top surface converged toward said slot so that said object will seek a position over said slot to be struck by said means, said means comprising paddles-extending radially from opposite sides of said axlein alignment with said slot, said paddles being of a length to have their free ends project upward through said slot during the upper half of each complete revolution thereof.
