Description

Nov. 19, 1963 H. BIRCH comsmmon cRiB, HIGHCHAIR AND WAGON Filed Aug. 17. 1961 INVENTOR. HARRY BIRCH United States Patent 3,111,332 CGMBHJATIGN CRE, HTGHQHAHR AND WAGUN Harry Birch, 41 Short ilircle, Milihurn, NJ. Fiied Aug. 17, 1961, Ser. No. 132,138 1 Claim. {i1 28fi31) This invention relates generally to childrens equipment and more specifically to childrens convertible furniture and vehicles.

One object of the present invention is to provide a combination crib, high chair and wagon which is readily convertible from one item to another as required.

It is another object of the present invention to provide a combination crib, high chair and wagon which utilizes certain parts in various different ways and making them adaptable for various uses.

It is still another object of the present invention to provide an item of convertible furniture and vehicle which is particularly useful to persons residing in confined quarters as, for example, in a city apartment Where it is often impossible to have certain items because inadequate space therefor. With the present invention, the device can be converted, as needed, thereby eliminating the need for storage space for items not in constant use.

It is another object of the invention to provide an item of convertible furniture and vehicle which may save the user considerable expenditure by purchasing one convertible item rather than three distinct and separate units.

It is another object of the invention to provide a combination crib, high chair and wagon which can be transported in an automobile, and thereby providing the child with three important requisites while travelling which, as three distinct units, could not be easily transported, nor would they fit into a conventional automobile.

For other objects and for a better understanding of the invention, reference may be had to the following detailed description taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawing, in which:

FIGURE 1 is a side elevational view or" the present invention shown as a crib;

FIG. 2 is a top plan view of the invention shown set up in FIG. 1;

FIG. 3 is a side elevational view showing the component parts rearranged to form a high chair;

FIG. 4 is a side elevational view showing the component parts rearranged to form a wagon;

FIG. 5 is a perspective view of an additional form, namely a bassinet, which may be placed upon the upturned wagon base;

FIGS. 6 and 7 are views showing details of end panels; and

FIG. 8 is a view showing the manner of attaching a handle.

Referring now to the drawing in detail, the numeral 19 represents a combination crib, high chair and wagon, according to the present invention wherein there is a stand 11 and supports a supported member 12.

The stand member 11 is comprised of a framework 13 made preferably of metal pipe or the like, formed into two inverted U-shaped frames 14, which are retained in parallel, spaced apart relationship by means of cross pieces 15 welded or otherwise integrally affixed thereto. One of the depending legs 16 on each of the frames 14 is provided with a rubber cap 17 at the base thereof to prevent sliding of the unit. The other depending leg 18 on each of the frames 14 is provided with a castor or wheel 19 to permit ready movement of the device from one location to another when desired, simply by raising the opposite end of the framework ad thereby permitting only 3,1 1 1,332 Patented Nov. 19, 1963 "Ice two wheels to have contact with the floor during transportation. Attached at the top of each frame 14 is a socket element 26 having a square shaped recess 21 logatlgd therein within which the supported member 12 is The supported member 12 is comprised of several elements which are rearranged, when desired, for various uses. Essentially the member 12 includes a box-like element 22 having a bottom panel 23, side panels 24 and end panels 25 and 26. The side panels 24 are provided with an extending support block 27 having a square configuration to correspond with the recess 21 and permit said blocks 27 to be supported in recesses 21. The sides 24 are also provided with a slot 28 within which square guides 29 of the end panel 26 are retained, permitting the panel 26 to be adjustably moved along the slot 28 and then fixed therein in any desired location by means of set screws or the like. Thus, the interior length of the crib may be adjusted by movement of the panel 26 which in use serves as a headboard. Also located on side panels 24 is a pivot pin 30 to which an arm 31 is attached, pivotally free. The other end of the arm 31 has a pin 32 which is attached to the side edges of end panel 25. The end panel 25 may be pivoted into different positions. Attached at the lower corners of the side panels 2 are a set of carriage wheels 33 and attached to the underside of the bottom panel is a handle element 34, the handle 34- being attached thereto by means of a snaphook to permit movement thereof into different positlons.

In use, the device may be adjusted into different positions as shown in the drawing. In FIGS. 1 and 2 the device is set up as a crib 35 wherein end panel 26 is a headboard and end panel 25 is a footboard. The block 27 is set into the recess 21 so that the box like element 22 is in horizontal position. In FIG. 3 the device is set up as a high chair 36. The block 27 is reset in the recess so that element 22 is in a vertical position. The end panel 26 has been lowered along slot 28 to form a seat. The end panel 25 has been swung into the position indicated, to form a high chair tray, and is secured in such position by means of spring catches or hooks. The supported element may be removed completely from the stand 11 and placed to rest upon its wheels, thus serving as a wagon 37. The handle 34 has been adjusted forwardly, as shown in FIG. 4. The wagon 37 may be upturned to serve as a stand, and a bassinet 38 having legs 39 may be placed upon the side 40 of the panel 23.

The device may be made of various materials, as desired, and may be made in any size, possibly even as'a small toy for children. The wheels may be provided with springs and the outer side of the panel 26 may be padded for comfort when used as a seat.

While various changes may be made in the detail construction, it shall be understood that such changes shall be within the spirit and scope of the present invention as defined by the appended claim.

What I claim as new and desire to protect by Letters Patent of the United States is:

A convertible furniture and vehicle item comprising the combination of a supporting stand having means for adjustable support comprising a pair of inverted U-shaped frames in spaced apart parallel relationship affixed together by transverse cross members, a socket element afiixed to each frame, each of said socket elements having a square shaped recess, and a supported member defining a box-like structure comprising a fixed bottom panel, fixed side panels and adjustable end panels, said side panels each having a slot and one of said end panels a t being engaged adjustably in said slot, the other of said References Cited in the file of this patent end panels being pivotably attached to a pair of arms, UNITED STATES PATENTS one of each of said arms being pivotably attached to one of each of said side panels, said supported member having 342927 Pnce June 1886 a corresponding square shaped extension on each of its 5 882688 Huffman June Z1998 side panels corresponding to the socket elements afiixed @2936 Cole July 1908 to the U-shaped frame for adjustable engagement there- 1302343 Farrer 1919 with to be positioned as a highchair or crib and Wheels 1326415 Negus f a1 1919 affixed adjacent the bottom panel of said supported mem- 1343000 Karschltz June 1920 2,805,076 Thomas Sept. 3, 1957 her to permit the same to be used as a wagon. 10
