[ ABS IRACT A musical recorder or whistle type toy which can be built up by a child from a number of components into a variety of different shapes from a number of basic components consisting of a blow whistle or reed mouthpiece, a number of tubular body components arranged for selective end to end engagement and of different shapes, and a trumpet horn end piece.
1 Claim, 2 Drawing Figures MUSICAL TOY WITH REARRANGEABLE PARTS BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION This invention concerns a musical toy of the recorder or whistle type. The object of the invention is to provide a toy which in addition to being capable of producing musical sounds also affords amusement to a child in that it is also a constructional toy and can be built up into a number of different and amusing shapes.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION According to the invention the toy comprises a blow into sound producing mouthpiece component, a trumpet end component and a resonance tube assembly detachably connecting said mouthpiece component and end component, said assembly consisting of a straight tube component and an elbow component, ends of all of said components inter-engaging by spigot and socket connections.
With the above arrangement in which preferably a plurality at least of the elbow components is provided, resonance tubes of different shapes and lengths can be built up by a child. It will be understood that the components engage in end to end fashion eg by spigot and socket joint each resonance component having an enlarged socket at one end into which a tube end of another said component can be fitted.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS An embodiment according to the invention will now be described with reference to the accompanying drawings in which:
FIG. 1 shows the basic components and FIG. 2 is a typical example of a built up toy.
DESCRIPTION OF PREFERRED EMBODIMENT As shown in FIG. 1, the toy consists of four basic components, namely a trumpet or funnel end component l, a straight short tubular component 2, an elbow component 3 and a whistle mouthpiece 4. Component 1 has a tubular spigot end 1a and components 2,3 and 4 enlarged socket ends 2b, 3b and 4b respectively, the
other ends of components 2 and 3 serving as spigots to fit within any socket end.
Components shown in FIG. 1 can be interfitted end to end in various ways, for example in the order shown, or in the order l,3,2,4, or component 1 could be engaged directly to component 4.
Components 2 and 3 provide a resonance tube and between components 1 and 4 and the toy as sold will include at least a number of the elbow components 3, enabling amusing shapes to be built up. The pitch of the note produced will be dependent on the length of the built up resonance tube and this pitch can be made variable by providing a fingering hole such as 20 through at least one component.
FIG. 2 shows a typical example of a built up toy using a number of components 3 and one component 2.
It will be understood that the elbow joints provide a swivel coupling enabling mutual component orientation to be altered so that when a number of such joints is used, the shape of a built up toy can be altered by appropriate swivelling.
The components preferably are made of a synthetic plastic material with components of different colours. A toy can be sold with more resonance tube components than shown in FIG. 2, in which the resonance tube comprises five components 3 and one component 2.
We claim:
1. A childs musical toy comprising a blow-into sound-producing mouthpiece component, a trumpet end component and a resonance tube assembly detachably connecting said mouthpiece component and end component, said assembly including at least one straight tube component and at least two elbow components, means for serially detachably connecting all said components, said means comprising spigot and socket connections at the ends thereof, said mouthpiece component having a said socket, said trumpet end component having a said spigot, and assembly components each having a said socket and spigot at respective ends, each said spigots being adapted to mate with any of said sockets.
