' BABY CRADLE Filed Jan. 14, 1958 0 2 INVENTORS Wip/MM ATTORNEYS United States Patent O F BABY CRADLE David E. May, San Antonio, and Walter W. Steen, Yoakum, Tex., assignors to Mar San Mfg. Co., San Antonio, Tex., a firm Application January 14, 1958, Serial No. 708,926

2 Claims. (Cl. 5 102) The present invention relates to baby cradles, and particularly to foldable rocking cradles.

The primary object of the invention is to provide a baby cradle which is foldable to lie at and which can be erected and collapsed without the use of tools.

Another object of the invention is to provide a baby cradle having a fabric support for the baby.

A further object of the invention is to provide a baby cradle having a framework formed of circular hoops pivoted together intermediate the opposite ends thereof.

Other objects and advantages will become apparent in the following specification when considered in the light of the attached drawings, in which:

Figure l is a perspective view of the invention.

Figure 2 is an enlarged top plan View of the invention.

Figure 3 is an enlarged fragmentary end elevation.

Figure 4 is an enlarged fragmentary transverse crosssection taken along the line 4 4 of Figure 2, looking in the direction of the arrows.

Figure 5 is an enlarged fragmentary transverse crosssection taken along the line 5 5 of Figure 2, looking in the direction of the arrows.

Referring now to the drawings in detail wherein like reference characters indicate like parts throughout the several figures, the reference numeral indicates generally a cradle constructed in accordance with the invention.

The cradle 10 includes a pair of metal hoops 11, 12. The hoops 11, 12 are formed with a cylindrical crosssection, as can be seen in Figure 4, and the hoop 11 is somewhat larger in diameter than the hoop 12. The hoop 12 is positioned within the hoop 11 and is pivotally secured thereto by a pivot pin 13 on one side, and a second pivot pin 14 on the opposite side.

A flat plate 15 is mounted on the pivot pin 13 between the hoops 11, 12, and a second at plate 16 is mounted on the pivot pin 14 between the hoops 11, 12 on the opposite side of the cradle 10. The ilat plates 15 and 16 are eac-h provided with transversely extending stop pins 17 at each end thereof, and the stop pins 17 are arranged parallel to the pivot pins 13, 14. The stop pins 17 each have a length sufficient to engage both the hoop 11 and the hoop 12 and limit the outward folding movement of the hoop 11 with respect to the hoop 12.

A fabric support 18 is positioned between the upper ends of the hoops 11, 12 and secured thereto by a cord 19 wrapped around the hoops 11, 12 and engaging 2,916,744 Patented Dec. 15, 1959 ICC through openings 20 formed in spaced relation along the edges of the fabric support 18. The cords 19 are tied together at 21 at each end of the cradle 10 to permit the fabric support 18 to be readily removed for cleaning purposes.

Each end of the cradle 10 is provided with a exible net guard 22 extending in upright relation from the edges of the fabric support 18 and is secured to the fabric support 18 at 23. The net members 22 are arranged to prevent the infant from falling from the cradle 10 and thus being injured.

Obviously, the circular hoops 11, 12 permit the cradle 10 to be rocked on the supporting surface to pacify the infant supported therein.

The hoop 11 being somewhat larger than the hoop 12 is adapted to fold inwardly in surrounding relation to the hoop 12 with the fabric support 18 folding therewith to a flat condition. No tools of any kind are required to fold and unfold the cradle 10, and the fabric support 18 along with the net members 22 assist in maintaining the cradle 18 in erected position along with the stops 17.

Having thus described the preferred embodiment of the invention, it should be understood that numerous structural modifications and adaptations may be resorted to without departing from the scope of the appended claims.

What is claimed is:

1. A collapsible cradle comprising a pair of circular hoops with one of said hoops having a diameter greater than the diameter of the other of said hoops, means pivotally securing the opposite side edges of the hoops together with the larger diameter hoop engaging over the smaller diameter hoop, means supported by said pivot means for limiting the pivotal movement of said hoops in one direction, a flexible fabric support, and means detachably securing said fabric support to the upper portions of said hoops, said hoops being pivotable in a direction opposite to said one direction to bring said hoops substantially into the same flat plane with said flexible fabric support folded therebetween.

2. A device as claimed in claim 1 wherein exible net members are secured to opposite side edges of said fabric support and extend in upright relation thereto as a guard for said cradle.
