Bellondl ATTORNEY) United States Patent SOUND-EMIT'HNG- HAND INVERBBLE Disrupts-- INGI CONTAINER FOR FLUENT Feliiilliilidfl L. Banana, S ao' Paula, Brazil:

Application March 16, 195 5, Serial No. 494,644

This invention relates to hand-invertible dispensing containers for fluent material and more specifically to a shaker type container with sound-emitting means.

An important object of the invention is to provide a shaker type container having incorporated therewith a sound-emitting means which latter functions when the container is being put to use.

Another important object is to provide a shaker type container adapted to dispense materials such as talcum powder, for example, and which incorporates a soundemitting device adapted to attract attention, as, for example, the attention of a small child, and hold the childs attention during dusting of the material.

A further important object is to provide a container as described in which the sound-emitting device will not be apt to become loosened even during vigorous dusting of the contents of the container.

Still another important object is to provide a soundemitting shaker-top container for fluent material in which the sound-emitting device thereof has dual functions.

Other objects and advantages of the invention will be apparent during the course of the following detailed description of the invention, taken in connection with the accompanying drawing, forming a portion of this disclosure, and in which drawing:

Fig. l is a view partly in vertical section and partly in elevation of the dispensing container of this invention in an upright position.

Fig. 2 is a like view but with the container inverted.

In the drawing, wherein for the purpose of illustration is shown a preferred embodiment of the invention and wherein similar reference characters designate corresponding parts throughout the several views, the letter A designates the dispensing container and B fluent material contained therein.

The container A may be of any approved form so that it comprises an outer wall and a partition wall, defining a housing and dual compartments, with one compartment open to the exterior of the container. In the example shown, the container A comprises an outer main wall 5, bottom wall 6, top wall 7 and transverse partition wall 8 preferably integral with the wall and paralleling the top and bottom walls. Preferably, the partition wall is nearer the bottom wall 6 than the top wall 7, so that an upper major or fluent material containing compartment 9 and a lower, minor or sound-emitting means containing compartment 10 are provided. In the example shown the container A is provided with a conventional shaker top 11 with a removable conventional closure 12 therefor. The closure 12 may be removably connected with the shaker top 11 as by screw threads 13 of the shaker top and screw threads 14 of the closure. The container A may be of hardened plastic material, metal, or combinations thereof and the bottom wall 6 may be secured to the lower edge portion of the main wall 5 by providing diagonally disposed peripheral flange 15 for the main wall 5 and a corresponding diagonally disposed flange 16 2 l for the bottom wall 6, with the twoflanges secured together. in any approved way. For example, if of hardened plastic materials, the confronting faces of the flanges may be softened by the application of a solvent for thematerials and the two flanges brought into intimate contact-v until they' are united as is well known in the art. The

fianges'raise the wall 6 otf a surface'upon whichtthe con-- tainer A may be placed: upright. Preferably, the bottom wall 6 is'provided with one ormore openings 17, whichmay be. arranged at the central portion of the wall 6, andan opening 18 spacedtherefrom, suclias may be'seen in the drawings. The objects of providing these openings will be subsequently explained Thetop wall 7 isprovided with a. mouth 19 surmounted by the. shaker top 11.

Preferably carried by the bottom wall 6 and attached to its inner face, is a conventional sound-emitting means 20 which may be of the bellows, weight and sounding or vibriating reed type, in which a tubular bellows 21 is closed at one end by a weight 22, as a disc, and closed at its other end by a reed-carrying hardened-plastic closure 23 of disc like shape. The reed may be housed in a suitable conventional carrier 24, open to the interior and exterior of the chamber 25. Elongation and collapse of the bellows 21 will cause air to alternately enter and be expelled from the chamber defined by the bellows 21, weight 22 and closure 23, through the carrier 24 and thus cause the reed to vibrate, producing sounds. It will be noted that the closure 23 may be provided with a portion or peripheral flange 25 with the edge portion of the latter secured to the wall 6 to enclose the openings 17.

The latter, of course, permit air to enter and be expelled from the space 26 defined by the flange 25, wall 6 and closure 23. The opening 18 is adapted to permit air to enter and be expelled from the compartment 10.

With the compartment 9 charged with fluent material B, when the container A is disposed as in Fig. l the bellows 21 will be collapsed but, as the container starts to become inverted, the bellows will begin to elongate whereby air will be drawn in and vibrate the reed of the carrier 24, causing a sound which will continue until the bellows is elongated to its limit. Such limit is preferably when the weight 22 contacts the partition wall 8. Shaking the inverted container will cause the weight to move, alternately partly collapsing and then elongating the bellows to prolong the sound. Of course, after the container A is tightened the weight will collapse the bellows and the sound will then cease.

Fluent materials are apt to cake upon the walls of a container, particularly the bottom wall, but the weight 22, contacting the partition wall 8 will tend to dislodge adhering material and thus the weight functions plurally.

It is well recognized that children who are inclined to be fretful and to fidget will be attracted by a pleasant or unusual sound and become quiet. Shaking the container A in order to dispense the material B will produce sounds to attract the attention of the child thereto.

Various changes may be made to the form of the invention herein shown and described without departing from the spirit of the invention or scope of the claims.

What is claimed is:

l. A sound-emitting dispensing container for fluent material, including a housing having outer walls and a partition wall defining a first compartment having an opening, and a second compartment; means for dispensing fluent material from said first compartment through said opening upon inverting said housing; and movable means within said second compartment, including a portion fixedly secured to one of said walls, to emit a sound upon inverting said housing.

2. A sound-emitting dispensing container for fluent material, including a housing having outer walls and a parti- ,ing upon inverting said housing; and means within said second compartment carried to emit a sound upon in verting said housing, including a portion fixedly secured to one of said walls and a weight movably secured to said portion and movable upon inverting of said housing to move toward and contact said partition wall.

3. A sound-emitting dispensing container for fluent material including a housing provided with outer Walls and a transverse partition wall dividing the housing into a normally upper compartment and a normally lower compartment, said upper compartment having a fluent material dispensing mouth to the exterior of said housing and said lower compartment having an air opening to the exterior of said housing, sound emitting means within said lower compartment actuated upon inverting and shaking said housing to emit sounds, said means including a weight spaced from said partition wall when said housing is upright and movable toward and to contact said partition wall when said housing is inverted and is shaken, a tubular bellows, with one end thereof secured to said weight, a closure secured to the other end of said tubular bellows and provided with an opening, a sounding reed carried by said closure at the last-named opening, and

' means securing said closure, at the peripheral portion thereof, to said outer walls remote from and to substantially parallel said partition, with said openings in communication.
