H6 8 I INVENTOR.

477'0EA/EK 472/04 46015444 I B any/menu m 63% This invention relates to a doll which is flat on one side and has three-dimensional features on the other to which clothes are attached. v

The primary object of this invention is to provide a flat doll with clothes thereon giving a three-dimensional life-like appearance.

Another object of this invention is to'provide a support for the doll which does not detract from the life-like appearance.

A further object of this invention is to provide a simple and effective means for attaching clothes to the doll without detracting from its life-like appearance.

A still further object of this invention is to provide means for making the wardrobe of the doll realistic for producing life-like appearance in combination with the three-dimensional effect.

The above and other objects of this invention will become apparent to those skilled in the art after a consideration of the following detailed description of the preferred embodiment of this invention taken together with theaccompanying drawing in which: I

FIG. I is a front elevational view of the doll and a dotted line of one of the dresses being worn by the doll;

FIG. 2 is a side elevational view of the doll;

FIG. 3 is a sectional view taken on line 3-3 of FIG. 1;

FIG. 4 is a cut-away view of a dress to be worn by the doll;

FIG. 5 is a sectional view taken on line 5-5 of FIG. 1;

FIG. 6 is a rear view of the doll; 7

FIG. 7 is a front view of a top portion of the dress shown in dotted form in FIG. 1; and

FIG. 8 is a front elevational view of the dress shown in FIG. 4.

Referring in detail to the drawing, shown in FIGS. 1-3, 5 and 6 is a doll 20 made of any suitable material found in conventional dolls. The rear portion 22 of doll 20 is absolutely flat. Projections 24 extend from the bottom of the feet of the doll downward into corresponding holes 26 in a base 28 which supports doll 20.

The dolls clothing is preferably made of felt because it is easily workable, can be colored, and various designs can be made thereon. The dress 38 shown in FIGS. 1 and 7 comprises a belt 40 and fancy buckle 42 located .at the hip portion of the doll, a stole 44, and extensions 46 each having a snap 48 thereon for attaching dress 38 to the doll. In this manner, when the doll is being used to demonstrate new fashions and designs of clothes, dresses may be slipped on with snaps 48 simply and quickly without the dress having to fit around the sides and/or back of the doll which would waste time in the demonstration. Dress 38 merely restsagainst the front of doll 20, as shown in FIG. 3, and extends outward partially taking on the form of the front of doll 20. FIGS. 4 and 8 show another style dress 50 having balloon sleeves 52, a necklace piece 54, and extensions 56 extendingfrom the shoulders of dress 50, each extension 56 having a snap 58 thereon for snapping together and holding the dress onto doll 20.

While the preferred embodiments of this invention have been illustrated and described, it will be understood by those skilled in the art that modifications and changes may be resorted to without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention.
