'(Cl. 4611) This is a continuation-in-part of our application, Serial No. 80,201, filed January 3, 1961, now abandoned.

This invention relates generally to packages and more particularly to packages with package elements which can be assembled into toy structures.

The assembly of toy buildings and figures from cut-out elements of packages or from foldable packages themselves is known. In recent years the packaging industry and manufacturers of packaged goods have sought to use improved and decorative packages as merchandising mediums by which their products sales can be increased. Another particular approach has been to design the Packages with a particular sales appeal to juveniles, and their parents, by making the package usable as a toy structure or having cut-out elements therein that can be formed into various assemblies.

. It is a principal object of the present invention to provide new and novel packages with package elements which can be assembled into a multiplicity of forms conforming to toy structures in assembly.

Another object is to provide versatility of combination ofpackage elements into toys assembled with common readily available household articles and representative of a wide variety of simulated creatures and other interesting arrangements.

A principal feature of the present invention is the assembly of toy structures from packages with a tubular core element for packaging of a roll of strip material, for example, paper toweling, or some similar article of manufacture or product. The package core element is assembled with one or more cut-out elements of the package or other packages. Each'package cut-out element represents a configuration conforming to the structure represented by the assembly of one or more package cores and the package cut-out elements. The package cut-out elements are provided with surfaces or portions securable to the package core, or cores as the case may be, in a given position relative to the package core to cause the package ,ore to conform to the structure represented by the assembly of the core and cut-out elements.

The structures can constitute sectional toy figures, such as reptiles, and humans and other creatures and objects such as animals, birds or other fowl, guided missiles, vehicles including toy space probes, tools, weapons, lodges such as tents or buildings, and any structure which lends itself to the use of individual tubular package cores as individual body or structure elements or to the use of one or more cores as a sectional body element or limb or as a sectional portion of the structure.

In the following specification the invention will be illustrated as particularly applicableto packages, permitting construction of toy structures, and particularly packages for products requiring package core elements, for instance paper toweling; however, it will be understood that the invention is equally applicable to the use of pack-.

age core elements of packages for other strip, rolled products not illustrated. A list of such rolledproducts would include paper products such as toilet tissue, protective barrier materials such as Waxed paper, aluminum foil, and the recently manufactured plastic films. The term package hereinshall include'boxes, receptacles and wrappers receptive of finished products and which are expendable.

The term package shall include the core portions on which end products are packaged jointly with outside packaging means including wrappers. Moreover, the term package cut-out elements shall refer to configured elements representing a configuration conforming to a particular structure represented by an assembly of the package cores and the individual elements and refers to configurations on packages, comprising wrappers, boxes and the like, formed thereon by tear lines outlining in the,

configuration or simply to configurations that can be removed from the package by cutting or severing.

According to the drawings illustrative of the invention a package 1 for a rolled product, for example, rolls 2, 3

of toilet tissue packaged on package core elements 5, 6 s

and having a wrapper 7 lends itself to the forming of toy structures according to the invention. Another product packaged in a package having a core element 8 is a roll of paper-toweling 9. It will be understood that in order to simplify the drawings and for ease of illustration whenever a core element of the type of core in the package 1 is illustrated in the various embodiments of the in vention it will be designated as a core 5. Moreover, long cores will be designated as a core 8 in similar manner. As hereinafter explained at length the cores 5, 8 are assembled with cut-outs, as for example, cut-out elements formed on the side surface of respective boxes 15, 15 and each representing a configuration conforming to a structure represented by an assembly of the package cores and the cut-out elements as hereinafter explained at length.

Referring to FIGS. -9 in which is illustrated the assemblyof a toy figure or structure of a group or combination of figures and structures representative, for example, of a circus hereinafter described in accordance with the invention. A package core 5 is assembled with a cut-out element 20 of a package or wrapper 21 of. a package of two rolls of tissue paper, as shown in FIG.'8, each showing a core. The cut-out element 20 is defined by tear lines 23 so that it can be removed from the.

wrapper 21 and punched out therefrom along the outlining tear lines. The cut-out element has a characterv24 having a configuration representing in this case a Weight lifter or circus strong man. Upon assembly of the element 25 with the core 5 a finished structure or FIGURE 25 is formed and the character or configuration 24 conforms to the structure namely, a standing weight lifter. The element 29 is assembled with a package core 5 by pasting or otherwise bonding it circumferentially extending around the periphery of the core element 5 and vertically or axially thereon so that the finished structure is formed in the manner shown in FIG. 7. It will be understood that the core 5 is taken from a package of the type illustrated in FIG. -8 or some similar package.

FIG. 9 is illustrative of a structure or figure in which a cut-out element 27 has been combined or assembled with a core element 5 in a manner of the assembly heretofore described. It being understood that the package or wrapper from which the cut-out element 27 has been taken is not shown. In FIG. 9 the structure is representative of a clown figure and the elongated core 5 can be disposed in an upstanding position in the manner shown so that the clown figure is vertically disposedin the'manner of the standing position of a human being. The clown is used inconjunction with other structures which are made according to the invention hereinafter described.

Toy structures representative of animals can be constructed according to the invention. Thus, a product, for example a paper product such as napkins, is packaged in a box 35 on a side surface of which is disposed a cut-out element 31 corresponding to the head of a lion and a cut-out element 32 representative of a tail is disposed on another side surface of the box 35. The box 35 is made of a relatively stiff material so that the elements 31, 32 may be cut out therefrom or canalternatively be defined by tear lines, not shown, so that the elements may be readily removed by punching out or cutting them out and assembled with a covered package coreformed .into a structure 35 to form a toy animal. The structure 35 corresponds to the body of a lion and is formed by covermg a package core 5 in a manner heretofore described, with a cut-out element 3'7 defined by tear lines 39 on the wrapper 21 of the package illustrated in FIG. 8. The element 31 is mounted on an end of the structure 35 and the element 32' is mounted axially spaced therefrom on a backside of the body structure 35 to form a composite toy structure representative of a lion.

The package core 8, shown in FIG. 4, is longer than the package core 5 and is, accordingly, employed to assemble toy structures in which a long core is preferable for assembly with package cut-outs. For example, the elongated long tubular core 8 is assembled into a toy figure in which it is first assembled into a tubular structure 46 representative of a body portion of an overall toy structure representative of a toy giraffe 41 in which a cut-out element 42 conforming .to a giraifes head is assembled with the tubular structure 40 at one end thereof. The assembled structure 40 is formed from a cut-out 44 defined by tear lines 45 on a package 45 for paper toweling 9 as shown in FIG. 4. The package core 8 is covered peripherally and axially by the cut-out 44 to form the structure 40 in the manner heretofore described with respect to FIGS. 6-8.

Structures representative of tents and the like can be formed according to the invention. Thus a box or package 59 made of a relatively stiff material and having a side surface 51 in which is disposed a cut-out element 53 and side'surfaces on which are defined cut-out elements 54, 55 is provided. The cut-out elements are removed from the box in a manner comparable to the manner heretofore described with respect to other cut-out elements and are folded and assembled as a tent top 53 at the apex or top of which are disposed the two elements 54', 55 jointly defining a pennant held in positionby a straight pin 56.

a The tent top 53 is mounted coaxially with a tubular barber pole can alsobe painted thereon by a juvenile assembling the assembly.

The tent top structure 53 extends radially outwardly of the support structure 58 so that a protective cover is formed under which toy animals or other structures representative of performers may be disposed. It is readily apparent that if a long tubular package core such as the package core 8- is employed the other structures may be disposed in the immediate vicinity of the tent. Moreover, a tail tent structure constituting a main tent or big top may be thus constructed and it is thus apparent that if shorter cores are employed a juvenile can employ the shorter cores to assemble other tents which could be employed as side shows.

From the description of the various type structures representative of circus performers, animals and tents it is readily apparent that the cut-outs on the various packages can be configured in a predetermined pattern for assembly into associated structures, as for example an entire circus.

While toy structures in which at least one package core is employed have been heretofore illustrated and described it will be understood that, according to the invention, a plurality of package cores may be assembled together in conjunction with cut-out elements representing configurations conforming to the structure represented by an assembly of a plurality of cylindrical package cores.

For example, a plurality of cylindrical, tubular package cores 5 are assembled, FIGS. and 16, coaxially to form a body portion 60 of a structure representative of a toy space vehicle 61. The toy space vehicle 61 is formed from a foldable cut-out element 62 representative of a nose cone and a plurality of elements as and a second plurality of cut-out elements 64 representative of stabilizing fins. It is understood that the package from which the cut-out elements are taken is made of a relatively stiff material and is not shown.

The nose cone element 62 is notched at '56 for receiving the leading edge 67- of a package core element 5 shown in FIG. 15 for fixing the nose cone element 62 onto one end of the space vehicle body 60 coaxially therewith. The fins 63, 64 are provided with tabs 68, 69 respectively which are received in slots or openings 70, 71 cut into the package cores, by the one assembling them, that form the body portion 60. The fins are secured to the vehicle body by the tabs and can also be glued thereto. The various package cores 5 that are assembled into the body portion or structure 60 by bonding the next adjacent edges thereof by an adhesive agent and the juvenile assembling the elements can notch them with axially extending notches 75 on at least one of the next adjacent ends of two adjacent core portions so that tabs '76 are formed allowing insertion of these tabs into the tubular bore of the adjac ent package core thereby telescoping the package cores into each other to form the assembly. The position of the fin tabs 69 and the holes 71 that receive them tend to hold two of the package cores of the body assembly together.

The nose cone elements and the various fins are made of relatively stiff material and the nose cone is preferably made of elements having sufficient Weight and dimension to control the vehicle 61 if thrown upwardly so that it tends to return to earth in a position in which the nose cone is pointed downwardly. The space vehicle 61 is alternatively provided with a parachute assembly 78 to return the vehicle safely to earth and packaged in the package, not shown, or preferably formed from cut-out elements on a package, not shown.

Other types of toys representative of airborne vehicles are constructed from a single package core of the long type, such as the package core 8, forming a fuselage 80 to which are fixed cut-out elements 81 representative of swept back wings on opposite sides of the fuselage and f5 a tail assembly spaced axially from the wing elements comprising stabilizer and tail elements 82 and 83. These elements are inserted in notches, not shown, cut in by the person assembling the vehicle or adhesively bonded thereon. The vehicle is provided with a nose portion 85 formed from a cut-out element and an exhaust nozzle 87 formed from a cut-out element of a package, not shown. The nose is fixed on a leading edge of the fuselage and the exhaust nozzle is bonded onto a trailing edge of the vehicle body 80 circumferentially thereof in the manner in which the cut-out elements are attached to the core portion in the embodiment disclosed in FIG. 6. The package from which the elements are cut is, of course, not shown.

Toy structures representative of astronauts in space probes or vehicles are constructed, from cut-outs of a package, not shown, in the manner shown in FIG. 18 in which a short package core 5 is peripherally and axially covered with a cut-out element 91 in the manner hereto fore described with respect to FIG. 6 on which a configuration representative of a vehicle or space probe 92 and a cut-out element representative of an exhaust nozzle 94 have been bonded. The cut-out element 91 is also provided with a configuration 95 representative of the astronaut and cut-out elements 96, Q7 representative of a nose cone and fins are secured to a leading end of the package core and elements 97 are spaced therefrom axially representative of fins and able to carry out a stabilizing effect to keep the probe from spinning as it is lifted into space by an air-filled balloon 98 to which the probe is secured.

Individual structures representative of individual characters can be formed according to the invention of the type for example shown in FIG. 19 in which a cut-out element 100 representative of the head of the caricature of a parrot and is notched at 191 for mounting on an end of a package core 103 of the short type on which are secured other cut-out elements spaced from the head in a specific relationship, namely toward the back of the core is mounted a cut-out element 195 representative of a tail and forwardly thereof and on the opposite end of the core opposite the head are mounted cut-out elements 1G7, 168 representative of the feet of the parrot. It will be understood that the head 1% can have the eyes 169 thereof and a tongue constructed as strips which are movable in known manner so that the parrot can be made to roll and move its eyes and in Which case the tongue 110 is actuatable. Moreover, the lion illustrated in FIG. 11 can similarly have movable eyes and a tongue which may be moved.

The invention permits the construction of individual toy structures which are combinable as a group into games. For example, FIG. 20 is illustrative of a plurality of toy structures combinable into a war game. The game is also a game of skill as hereinafter described. In this embodiment of the invention toy soldier structures 120, 121 are formed from core elements and cut-outs as heretofore described with respect to FIGS. 6-8. A toy field piece or gun 122 is formed with a gun barrel 123 formed from a short core as heretofore described with the cut-out 124 from a wrapper of a package, not shown, and mounted on wheels 1126 joined by a cut-out axle element, not shown. The gun or field piece is movable into position so that projectiles, as for example marbles 128 or rubber bands, not shown, can be discharged longitudinally through the barrel 123 of the gun to bombard the toy soldiers 120, 121. It is readily apparent that the soldiers have various configurations and represent dif-.

ferent forces so that the toy soldiers can be disposed in friendly and opposing forces and the skill of the players of the games can be tested as to their accuracy in bombarding forces and various rules for the games can be employed as established by the players themselves.

The invention, moreover, permits construction of sectional toy soldiers or figures having a plurality of package cores cooperatively jointed in articulate interconnection with the package cores and cut-outs representative of limb pieces or body portions. Accordingly, a pinrality of package cores are articulately interconnected to form the body portion of a sectional toy representative of a reptile 139, as shown in FIGS. 21-23.

The body of the reptile is formed by interconnecting a plurality of package cores 5 by means of household articles, quite readily available as for example, paper clips 131, extending axially between the next adjacent package cores and held from moving axially by means of toothpicks 133, 134 inserted through openings, not shown, transversely next adjacent respective package cores. The toothpicks T133, 134 are inserted through. the paper clips 131 and jointly with the clips provide articulate interconnection between the successive package cores so that an elongated body portion is formed which can move along sinuous paths.

The reptile is provided with a head 13-6 constructed from cut-outs of a box or package, not shown, made of a relatively stifl material. The head 136 is formed from two cut-out elements 137, 139. The cut-out i3) isfoldable along a line 145) so that an end portion 141 thereof is disposed substantially normal to the piece 137, fixed with respect to member 137 either by gluing thereon or by means of a slot, not shown, on member 137 in known manner. The cut-out elements 137, 139 have a configuration reprcsentative of the head and jaws and in view of the manner of assembly the jaws 14-3 are operable to open and closed positions and have a tendency to remain in an opened position as shown in FIG. 22. The entirehead assembly is fixed to the body of the reptile by means of a tab 144- formed on the end of element 137 which is inserted axially into the bore of an endmost package core and held in assemblytherewith by means of a toothpick 146 inserted transversely of the package core through openings which can be made by the juvenile assembling the toy structure or figure.

The end of the reptile opposite to the head is provided with a tail portion or assembly 14-7 constructed from a cut-out 149 from a package or box of relatively stiff material, a fragmentary portion 159 of whichis shown in FIG. 23. The cut-out element 149 is generally triangular in form having a plurality of fold lines 153 converging toward the apex of the triangular figure or element along which the element 149 is folded to form a substantially cruciform tail assembly or portion is? which is fixed to a rearmost package core of the body portion by notching the tail portion as shown in 155 and securing it to the body portion as for example by a bonding or adhesive agent.

The versatility of the invention allows the construction of actuatable or operable sectional toy figures constructed from a combination of a plurality of package cores having articulate interconnection to form a part of the structure and in combination with cut-out elements outlining or having a configuration conforming to the structure represented by the overall assembly. The varietyv of actuatable figures is exemplified by a puppet or sectional toy figure disclosed in FIG. 24.

A plurality of package cores 5 are jointly assembled in groups or pairs of package cores with articulate intercon nection with each group or pair representative of a limb element or a body portion of a sectional toy figure.

The package cores '5 are joined to form limb elements body limbs. 161, 162 are joined to the. body portion by interlocked paper clips 163, 169 held in a movable joint assembly by a thirdupstanding clip 17.1 held in joint assembly with the body portion 164 by a toothpick 173 and on the outermost end of which is mounted a cut-out clement 3J5 taken from the box or package 15 and conforming to the head and face of the puppet.

The puppetis suspended from a line 17% attached to means, not shown, for alternatively holding the puppet in fixed position or transportably suspending it. The arms are completed with cut-out elements 179, 18%? repres-entative of hands which are taken from the box or package 16. The leg elements or limbs are completed by attaching thereto. cut-out elements 18.1, 182 representative of the feet of the figure also forming cut-out elements of the box 16, in the manner shown in FIG. 3. The hands or cut-out elements 179, 18% are fixed to the arms I161, 162 by insertion into the bores of respective tubular package cores and preferably bonded thereto on the inner periphery thereof so that the hands tend to have a somewhat arcuate configuration in the manner of a human hand. In a similar manner the cut-out ele ments 181, 182 representative ofthe feet of a puppet have suitable end portions thereof folded in an upstanding direction and bonded on the inner periphery of respective inner surfaces of respective package cores in the manner shown in PEG. 24 so that the feet have a general configuration of a foot.

The puppet is completed by attaching strings to the outermost or endmost package cores the limb elements representative of the arms by meansof toothpicks 137 and strings 183 to the upper package core of the limb elements representative of the legs substantially adjacent the articulate interconnection of the package cores forming the leg elements so that upon actuation of operating assembly or members 1% the sectional toy figure can be madeto execute any desired movement comparable to the simulation of the human being.-

It will be understood that the package cores assembled into the body portion and respective limb elements of the puppet are generally uncovered. However, it is readily apparent that each of the package core elements can be colored by tie juvenile assembling the toy and alternatively cut-outs from a wrapper can. be provided in the manner heretofore described so that the puppet may be colorfully colored. 7

According to the invention the tubular package cores are combinab-le relatively movable with respect to each other by a split tubular package core or combined with a package cut-out by insertion therein of the core to form toy structures usable in the usual juvenile games, as for example the games of Pirates and Cowboys and Indians. For example, a pair of the longer cores 8 are assembled. into a spy glass 2659 in the manner shown in FIGS. 25 and 26. The pair of cores'ti are held coaxially and rotatably relative each other by a coupling package core 5 which is split longitudinally to provide a split 261. The cores 8 are inserted axially into the coupling package (101's 5 which expands radially to receive them because of the longitudinal split 2% and tends to clasp the two package cores 8 and hold them in fixed assembly while permitting relative angular movement with respect to one another.

The spy glass assembly is completed by attaching to respective coreportions S in the manner shown in the cut-aways in FIG. 26 respective filters 2'93, 2%. Each of the filters has tabs 2%, 2% which can be bent and secured internally of the respective tubular cores 8. Moreover, each filter has a clear portionitlila, 264a which can be aligned axially by'relatively rotating the core portions or pieces 8 so that the'userof the spy glass can view through the, clear portions. Each of the filters has a colored portion 293b, 2841) which can be aligned in the manner shownin FIG. 25 so that when the spy glass is viewed through the user views through two colored portions or halves which can be colored to appear as though the user is viewing through the spy glass at night. The filters 203, 2154 are cut-outs taken from a package, not shown, and the respective portions thereof are made of a clear and colored material as indicated. It is readily apparent to the skilled in the art that the filters 203, 204 can be made in selected filter combinations to accomplish any desired result possible by color combinations and opacity.

A toy structure formed by insertion of a tubular package core into a cut-out is shown in FIG. 27 in which a long core 8 is assembled with a head or package cut-out 297 into the configuration of a tomahawk. The cut-out 2527 is taken from a package 293 shown only fragmentarily in FIG. 28. The cut-out 267 is provided with tabs 209 insertable in corresponding slots 21%, upon bending of the cut-out along fold lines 211, 212. The cut out is provided with markings 214 representative of tongs for securing the tomahawk head 2617 to the core 8. The core 8 is inserted into the head of the tornahawk formed from the cut-out 2G7 and is preferably bonded thereto by an adhesive. Moreover, the cut-out may be assembled with a tubular core by insertion into a axial slot, not shown, in the package core 8 in which it is received and held in a fixed relationship and can be adliesively secured thereto.

According to the invention one or more tubular package cores are completely split longitudinally to form various toy structures or configurations. Accordingly, a toy structure representative of a missile or space probe 217 is constructed from a long core 8 on which a nose 218 is disposed and which is formed from a cut-out of a package, not shown. The probe is provided with guide fins 219 which are formed by splitting a pair of short package cores and taking the halves thereof and arranging them on quadrants in the manner shown in FIG. 29.

Mobile toy structures, according to the invention, are constructed by splitting the short cores 5 so that a half thereof forms a body portion 220 of a propelled toy structure, for example, the configuration of a mouse. The head of the toy mouse is formed from a package cut-out element 221 of a package 222 a fragmentary side portion of which is shown in FIG. 31. The cut-out element 221 is bent to conform to the half section of the core 5 which forms the body portion 220 and is inserted axially therein and secured thereto by adhesive bonding along the marginal edge portion 220a of the body portion 220. The after end of the body portion 220 has secured thereto a cut-out element 224 in the form of a tail for the mouse. The mobile toy mouse is propelled by motor means, constructable by a juvenile, comprising a thread spool 225 in which has been inserted a matchstick 226 with the head of the match removed or a toothpick or some similar longitudinal member and a rubber band 227 wound thereon in known manner to cause the spool to rotate and drive the mouse toy structure forwardly.

The packages from which the toy structures are constructed are preferably assembled into a group in the manner shown in FIG. 32 and packaged together in an outer package 230 provided with a handle 231 so that it can be readily transported and easily placed on shelves and subsequently removed therefrom by shoppers. The outer package 230 is preferably provided with a clear plastic window, for example a side window 233,- on opposite sides of the package through which the various component packages may be seen. The outer surfaces of the package 23f) are provided with suitable legend for merchandising thereof.

Another embodiment of the invention, FIGS. 34-36, comprises an album 236 having a front cover 236a and a back cover 2315b. The front cover 236a comprises a pocket 237 and the back cover 2361) comprises a pocket 238 into which are insertable a plurality of sheet mai terial 240, 241 having cutout elements 242-246 of relatively stiff material, for example sheets for forming, in combination with package cores, structures representative of creatures as hereafter explained. The pockets 237, 238 are capable of holding other sheets of relatively stiff material, not shown, in which are disposed other cut-out elements 248, 249 formed into structures or creatures, respectively in combination with other cut-out on cores as hereafter described.

The cut-out element 248 is foldaole along lines 248a and is assembled with a package core 5 to form a structure representative of a toy tent 250. A cut-out 251 of flexible paper material is provided in the album pockets for covering a package core to form the completed toy tent structure. Other cut-out elements 242, 243 and 244 are cut out of the sheets, punched out or otherwise removed therefrom and are assembled on a core 5 in conjunction with other cut-out elements, for example a cutout element 253 representative of the feet of a creature to form a structure representative of a toy lion 255.

insertion of a tab 249a into a core 5 covered with a flexible cut-out 257 to form a structure representative of a toy creature corresponding to a toy giraffe 258. The flexible cut-out 257 in conjunction with the core it covers forms the body portion of the toy giraffe.

The album covers 236a, 236b are foldable in the manner of a book. A member 260 made of a foldable material is joined to the outer edges of the covers of the album 236. This foldable' member 260' folds into the position illustrated in FIG. 34 when the cover is closed or partially closed and is stretched out when the album is' disposed in an upstanding position with the front and back covers partially opened in the position illustrated in FIG. 36. In this manner the foldable member 266 in conjunction with the album forms a backdrop for the toy structures representative of tents and animals and the like.

The album 236 has printed matter and configurations thereon representative of an appropriate backdrop for whatever assembly of toy structures are to be formed from the cut-outs therein. For example, the album illust'rated in FIGS. 34-36 has a clownon the outer face of the front cover 236a and the representations in the inner surfaces of the covers are appropriate for a circuit since the toy structures formed from the cut-outs in the pockets in the album are intended to represent structures appropriate for a circuit. material are pinned with straight pins 263 on the tent structure and to the backdrop member 260. The pennants can also be formed directly on the foldable backdrop member 260. The invention is constructed in this form with other albums, not shown, appropriate to the assembly intended. For example, the album is constructed, in some embodiments appropriate for an assembly of toy structures representative of space vehicles. In such a case the album is constructed to form a backdrop, for example, of a missile launching site or other appropriate complex.

The different forms that the invention can take and the use of common ordinary household articles permits great satility of application of the invention and ready use by juveniles. The simplicity of assembly permits juveniles of very early age to construct the various structures and the relative and more complex assemblies and games of skill permit a wide range of use of the invention by juveniles of a relatively wide range of ages.

While preferred embodiments of the invention have been described and shown it will be understood that many modifications and changes can be made within the true spirit and scope of the invention.
