ORBITING AND SOARING SKILL TOY Filed Sept. 5, 1967 United States Patent O 3,502,335 ORBITING AND SOARING SKILL TOY William C. Sholin, P.O. Box 106, Oconomowoc, Wis. 53166 Filed Sept. 5, 1967, Ser. No. 665,326 Int. Cl. A631) 71/00 US. Cl. 273106 8 Claims ABSTRACT OF THE DISCLOSURE A semispherical dome shaped toy with a rim extending radially from its edge and having a plurality of annular grooves. One or more small balls are placed inside the dome which is then maneuvered to place the balls in orbit and the object is to orbit the balls into the annular grooves with each succeeding groove being of increasing difficulty to reach. For diversification, the dome may be placed on the head of the player and balls disposed in annular grooves in the rim may be placed in orbit by gyrating the head and torso. The toy may also be tossed into the atmosphere with a spinning motion to cause it to soar, and its configuration is such that a breeze will react on its surface to propel it further in intricate paths of travel.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION The invention is a toy that is provided for the amusement of human beings. It is of such nature that it may be readily operated and enjoyed by the novice but practice produces increasing skill in its use for even greater enjoyment to the participant. As a result, different competitive games of skill may be played with the toy.

With the advent of the space age a variety of toys have been developed to simulate space equipment and the maneuvering of such equipment in outer space. The improved toy of the present invention is very well adapted to represent space maneuvers with the dome portion of the toy simulating a planet and the several concentric grooves around the dome being different orbits about the planet. The small balls within the dome are the space vehicles that the players maneuvers into the different orbits about the planet with competitors striving to place the balls in the most difficult orbit.

When the toy is tossed into the atmosphere, it becomes the space vehicle or a flying saucer. If it is tossed into a breeze, the player may direct it in such a manner as to allow the breeze to propel the toy into intricate maneuvers. On the other hand, other competitive games may be played wherein the players test their accuracy in tossing the toy at a target or strive to propel the toy the greatest distance along a prescribed path.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION The improved toy of the present invention is preferably formed of molded plastic shaped to provide a semispherical dome with a rim so that it has the appearance of a hat. The dome, of course, presents a circular edge and an annular recess is formed at this edge. In addition, a plurality of annular grooves are formed on both sides of the rim. A small ball, such as a glass marble or the like, is placed in the downwardly extending dome and the player grasps the toy and moves it in a path to cause the marble inside the dome to move about the wall of the dome and progress upwardly until it is maneuvered into the annular recess. The toy may then continue to be maneuvered in an effort to advance the ball from the annular recess in the dome into another annular recess on the rim to achieve a different orbit and then into succeeding grooves on the rim, with each orbital path being more difficult to achieve.

3,502,335 Patented Mar. 24, 1970 As a further display of skill, additional balls may be placed into the dome successively and advanced into the different orbital paths while one or more other balls are already in orbit.

The toy may be inverted and placed on the head of a player to present additional annular grooves in the rim, concentric with the dome. Balls are placed in these grooves and by skillfully gyrating his head and torso, the player may manage to move the balls into orbits established by the annular grooves about the dome which is encompassing the top of the head of the player.

The rim of the toy extends outwardly from the edge of the dome but also extends away from the dome. This configuration forms a pocket which causes the toy to soar into the atmosphere when it is tossed upwardly with a spinning motion. Moreover, if the toy is tossed into a breeze, the latter will further propel the toy into the atmosphere, and may actuate it into intricate maneuvers to the amusement of the player.

It is therefore a general object of the present invention to provide an improved toy that may be employed in different manners for the amusement of the players.

Another object of the invention is to provide a toy that may represent outer space, and in which the player can imagine that he is maneuvering a space vehicle into different orbits about a planet.

A further object is to provide an improved toy of simple and inexpensive but sturdy construction which may be employed to play different competitive games of skill for contestants and will also provide diverse amusements for an individual player.

DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWING The foregoing and other objects of this invention, which will become more fully apparent from the following detailed description, may be achieved by the exemplifying apparatus depicted and set forth in the specification in connection with the accompanying drawings, in which:

FIGURE 1 is a perspective view of a toy constructed in accordance with the teachings of the present invention with a ball being shown in an annular recess that establishes an orbital path of travel, and a second ball being depicted in the bottom of the toy;

FIGURE 2 is a perspective view of the toy illustrated in FIGURE 1 but depicted in the inverted position to show the exterior surface of the dome as well as the bottom of the rim; and

FIGURE 3 is a view in vertical section taken through the center of the toy along the plane represented by the line 3-3 in FIGURE 1.

DESCRIPTION OF A PREFERRED EMBODIMENT Reference is now made more particularly to the drawings which illustrate a toy constructed in accordance with the teachings of the present invention. As there shown, the improved toy comprises a dome 10 that is preferably of semispherical configuration. A rim generally identified by the reference numeral 15 is secured to the circular edge of the dome 10 and extends outwardly and upwardly therefrom. Thus, the toy includes the dome 10 with its outwardly extending annular rim 15 to give it the appearance of a hat.

An annular recess 16 is formed in the dome 10 at its outer edge with an annular wall 17 defining the periphery of the recess 16. The outer circular edge of the wall 17 establishes the edge of the dome 10 and the rim 15 is attached to this edge, extending outwardly therefrom while being tapered slightly upwardly away from the dome '10. In this description, the dome 10 is considered as being disposed at the bottom of the toy with the rim 15 being located at its top, such normal position being illustrated in FIGURES l and 3.

The rim 15 is attached to the dome by an annular wall 18 that has its inner circular edge attached to the outer circular edge of the wall 17. The wall 18 forms an obtuse angle with the annular wall 17 so that the rim tapers upwardly from the dome 10. An annular protrusion 20 extends upwardly from the rim 15 with its circular sidewall 21 extending upwardly from the annular wall 18 to form an annular recess 25 at the inner edge of the rim 15. It will be noted that the recess 25 is contiguous with the recess 16 with the recess -16 extending upwardly about the outer edge of the dome 10 and the annular recess 25 extending laterally therefrom about the inner edge of the rim 15.

A second annular protrusion is formed at the outer extremity of the rim 15. The annular protrusion 30 is spaced outwardly from the annular protrusion 20 to form an annular groove 23 between them.

The annular recess 16, the annular recess 25 and the annular groove 23 form orbital paths for receiving small balls which may be moved in these annular paths of travel by maneuvering the toy. Thus, in FIGS. 1 and 3, a ball is illustrated in the annular recess 16 and a second ball 36 is shown in the bottom of the dome 10. A indicated in FIG. 1, the ball 35 is traveling in the orbital path established by the annular recess 16 and the ball 36 is at the bottom of the dome 10 ready to be maneuvered upwardly along the interior wall of the dome 10 to be moved into the annular recess 16 while the ball 35 is travelling therein without dislocating the ball 35 from its orbital path of travel. Such shifting of the ball 36 is accomplished by manually maneuvering the toy and a player can become skilled in this maneuver to successively place a large number of balls into orbital movement in the recess 16.

The ball 35 is maintained in an orbital path of travel within the recess 16 by moving the dome 10 and its associated rim 15 in an orbit. By tipping the toy or otherwise maneuvering it While moving it in an orbit, the ball 35 can be shifted, while in its orbital movement, into the annular recess 25. By further manuevering of the toy, the ball 35 can be shifted over the protrusion 20 and into the groove 33 while maintaining its orbital movement.

In order to create a game related to maneuvering in outer space, the dome 10 can be considered to be planet in the universe with the annular recesses 16 and 25 and the annular groove 23 being considered dilferent orbits about the planet 10. The operator will move the space vehicle represented by the ball 35 from a small orbit in the annular recess 16 into a larger orbit established by the annular recess 25 and then into the orbit defined by the groove 23 for achieving the greatest distance away from the planet. As the operator becomes proficient in transferring the space vehicle from one orbit to another he will successively add more balls into the dome 10 so that the number of balls, representing several space vehicles, will be in orbit simultaneously about the dome 10 which will represent the planet in the universe.

On the other hand, the player may invert the toy to the position shown in FIGURE 2. With the toy in this inverted position, the rim 15 presents two additional annular grooves 40 and 41 which actually constitute the bottom sides of the annular protrusions 20 and 30 respectively. A ball 42 is shown in the groove 40 in FIGURE 2 while another ball 43 is depicted in the groove 41. The player may place the toy on his head in the inverted position shown in FIGURE 2 with the dome 10 encompassing his head. Then, with a ball in one of the grooves 40 or 41, or a ball in each groove, or with several balls in one or both grooves the player can gyrate his head and torso to move the toy and thereby maneuver the balls into the orbits defined by the two grooves. Such gyrations by the player causes him to exercise muscles which are not usually used in normal daily activities.

It has also been found that the unique configuration of the toy illustrated in the drawings, with its dome 10 and outwardly and upwardly extending rim 15 having the annular protrusions 20 and 30 therein, render it especially well adapted for soaring in the atmosphere. It the toy is tossed upwardly and outwardly into the air, and given a spinning motion as it is thus tossed, it is capable of traveling great distances. Moreover, if it is caught by a breeze, the latter will further propel it and may actuate it into intricate maneuvers, as for example, into sharp curves, or under other conditions, it may move the toy into graceful curves through the air.

This characteristic of the toy renders it adaptable for other forms of amusement besides placing the small balls in orbit. Thus, merely tossing the toy into the atmosphere with a spinning motion provides amusement in observing it soar through the air in the manner of a space vehicle and to further observe the intricate maneuvers it may go through when caught by a breeze. This feature also enables other competitive games to be developed, as for example, the contestants may determine who can toss the toy the greatest distance through the air and skills may be developed to achieve long distances of travel through the air. In addition, an operator may develop the skill of controlling its flight to achieve accuracy in throwing it at a target. Thus, accuracy contests may be had for throwing the toy at the target a specified distance.

From the foregoing detailed description of the illustrative embodiment of the invention set forth herein it will be apparent that there has been provided an improved orbiting and soaring toy that is especially adapted for playing a variety of games by contestants as well as providing diverse amusements for an individual player and that will also alford a player an opportunity to exercise his muscles.

Although the illustrative embodiment of the invention has been described in considerable detail for the purpose of disclosing a practical operative structure whereby the invention may be practiced advantageously, it is to be understood that the particle article described is intended to be illustrative only and that the various novel characteristics of the invention may be incorporated in other structural forms without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention as defined in the subjoined claims.
