ATTORNEY United States Patent 'Oflice Q 2,701,934 Patented Feb. 15, 1955 nor-our nouns 'rov John M. Auzln, Whitman, Mal. Application June 27, 1951, sel'ill No. 233,805 3 Claims. (Cl. 46 -135) The present invention relates to the manufacture of rubber' toys, and has particular reference to air filled hollo'w type rubber toys which have projectable parts.

a The principal object of the invention is to provide an air filled toy which has ears, eyes, and other parts adapted to-snap ,out when the toy is squeezed, and. to snap back when thej squeezing pressure is released.

Another object of the invention is to' provide. a projectable element in a rubber toy which has associated parts that are placed under tension when the toy is squeezed to project the element, the tensioned parts compelling return of the element to its initial position when the squeezing pressure is released.

An additional object of the invention to provide an action toy with projectable parts which normally seat in cavities in the toy and are adapted to snap out wholly or in part when the toy is squeezed and to snap back into the cavities when the squeezing pressure is released.

A further object of the invention is to provide an air filled action toy with parts which are projected outwardly when the toy is squeezed and which return to their initial position when the squeezing pressure is released, the extent and direction of the projection being controlled by the construction thereof.

Another object of the invention is to provide an air filled action toy which has projectab e parts each seated in a cavity, the cavities having associated beads and ribs which are placed under tension when the toy is squeezed to control the extent and direction of projection of the parts and to exert a collapsing pressure for returning the projected parts to their cavities when the squeezing pressure is released.

Still another object is to provide a vent arrangement for equalizing the density of the air in an air filled action toy, which vent arrangement may be closed when the toy is squeezed to increase the pressure of the air therein.

With the above and other objects and advantageous features in view, the invention consists of a novel arrangement of parts more fully disclosed in the detailed description following. in conjunction with the accompanying drawings, and more specifically defined in the claims appended thereto.

In the drawings:

Fig. l is a front elevation of an illustrative toy embodying the invention;

Fig. 2 is a view similar to Fig. 1, parts being in section;

Fig. 3 is a front elevation of the toy of Fig. 1 in projected position, parts being in section;

Fig. 4 is a detail showing a vent arrangement which may be embodied in the toy construction;

Fig. 5 is a sectional detail on the line 5-5 of Fig. 4;

Fig: 6 is a sectional detail of a preferred ear construction for Fig. 1;

Fig. 7 is a front elevation of a preferred eye construction for Fig. 1;

Figs. 8 and 9 are sectional details of alternative arrangements for the eye construction of Fig. 7; and

Fig. 10 is a sectional detail of a modified base construction.

it has been found desirable to provide a rubber action toy of the air filled type, which has parts projecting outwardly from the toy when it is squeezed and snapping back when the squeezing pressure is released. To this end, I form the toy with recesses in which projectable parts such as heads, ears, eyes, tongue and the like are normally nested, the recesses having thick peripheral portions which are placed under tension when the toy is squeezed to which may be closed project the parts, and which operate to snap the projecting arts back into the recesses when the pressure is released. have further provided for an opening to the interior by the hand when squeezing the toy, to ensure normal air pressure in the toy before squeezing, and I have added a pop-type base for certain constructions which pops out with a noise when the toy is squeezed.

Referring to the drawings, the illustrative action toy 10 shown in Fig. l is hollow, and has a body 11 adapted to be squeezed and a head 12 which thereupon projects upwardly, see Fig. 3, with cars 13 and eyes 14 which pop out. The toy is preferably formed by dipping a mold mto latex solution, as described in my copending Serial No. 750,318 filed May 24, 1947, for Action Toy, now Patent No. 2,668,394.

As illustrated in Fig. 2, the body 11 and head 12 are hollow, the body wall 15 bending inwardly as indicated at 16, then downwardly as indicated at 17, then bending again as shown at 18 to join the head wall 19. The wall portion 17 has an annular bead 20 of generally triangular form, and positioned adjacent the bend 16, whereby the head 20 assumes the position shown in Fig. 3 when the head 12 projects or pops upwardly, under an elastic tension which continually tends to pull the head down mto the position of Fig. 2 The lower end of the base is sealed by a cup-shaped plug 21.

The plug 21 is preferably sealed in, to be air-tight, but may leak or give when the toy is subjected to rough use. I therefore prefer, in some constructions, to provide a vent channel 22 in a projecting nipple 23 projecting outwardly from the body wall, see Figs. 4 and 5, which may be manually covered by a finger just prior to squeezing the toy, to provide the necessary internal air pressure for popping the head and its projecting parts outwardly.

The cars 13, see Fig. 6, are inset in sockets 24 in the head wall, with thick annular beads 25 at the base of the recesses and the ears; when the toy is squeezed the sockets and the ears project outwardly and the beads 25 are placed under substantial tension. As illustrated, one side of the sockets is lower than the other side, so that the projecting ears have a different angular relation to the normal ear positions.

The eyes 14, see Figs. 7, 8 and 9, are seated in sockets 26, which have thick beads 27 at the junction of the socket wall and the head wall, adapted to be placed under tension when the pupils 28, which are solid and preferably tilted upwardly, are projected outwardly as shown in Fig. 3. The extent and the angle of projection are controlled by upper ribs and lower ribs in the eye sockets, which may be of narrow width for the upper rib as indicated at 29 in Fig. 8, and wide width for the associated lower rib 30, or of wide width for the upper rib 31, see Fig. 9, and corresponding wide width for the lower rib 32, it being preferred to also add a supplemental depending rib 33, see Fig. 7, to increase the angular deviation when the eye pupil is projected outwardly.

The lower portion of the body 11 may have a noise making part, see Fig. 10, wherein the wall of the base has an inwardly and downwardly curved section 34, and an upwardly extending cap or knob shaped portion having a flexible diaphragm 35, the junction of the section 34 and the diaphragm portion 35 having a thickened annular bead 36. When the toy is squeezed or released the diaphragm makes a sound. The bust shaped diaphragm also permits the section 34 to provide a firm base for the toy, la; it seats annularly on a support such as a table or the l e.

the wall forming the neck and the telescoping parts having an annular thick bead, and the head having sockets with projecting parts, the sockets having peripheral annular thick beads, and the projecting parts such as eyes having control ribs associated with the sockets thereof. If desired, additional control of the amount anddirection of projection of the parts may be obtained by modifying the annular beads, as by leaving out portions thereof.

Although I have described specific construction embodiments of my invention, it is obvious that changes in the size, shape and arran ement of the parts may be made to suit different toy design requirements, without departing telescopes into the body,

[mm the spirit or the scope of the invention as defined in the appended claims.

I claim:

1. In an action toy, a hollow head having walls of resilient material, concave recesses in said walls constituting eye sockets, aimular beads outlining said eye sockets, said beads being integral with said walls, projections in said sockets integral with the walls thereof and constituting pupil bodies extending outwardly from the sockets, and a rib in each socket extending across the socket and integrally joining the pupil body to the socket wall.

2. In an action toy, a hollow head having walls of resilient material, concave recesses in said walls constituting eye sockets, annular beads outlining said eye sockets, said beads being integral with said walls, projections in said sockets integral with the walls thereof and constituting pupil bodies extending outwardly from the sockets, and a rib in each socket extending across the socket and integrally joining the pupil. body to the socket wall, said sockets being generally spherical and said rib being generally radial.

3. In an action toy, a hollow head having walls of resilient material, concave recesses in said walls constituting eye sockets, annular beads outlining said eye sockets, said beads being integral with said walls, projections in said sockets integral with the walls thereof and-constituting pupil bodies extending outwardly from the sockets, and a rib in each socket extending across the socket and integrally joining the pupil body to the socket wall, said sockets being generally spherical and said rib being generally diametrically across the socket.
