TOY.

APPLICATION FILED IAN.13, 190G;

CORT W. TOWNSEND, OF NEW PHILADELPHIA, OHIO.

' TOY.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Sept. 25, 1906.

Application filed January 13, 1906. Serial No. 295,957.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, CORT WV. TOWNSEND, a citizen of the United States, residing at New Philadelphia, in the county of Tuscarawas and State of Ohio, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Toys; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description of the same, reference being bad to the annexed drawings, making a part of this specification, and to the figures of reference marked thereon, in which Figure 1 is a perspective view. Fig. 2 is a vertical section showing a side view of two images. Fig. 3 is a view showing a single image pivotally mounted and illustrating the ball-dropping cup in sections. Fig. 4 is a longitudinal section of a portion of the base and illustrating the ball-receiving cup or pocket, also showing a portion of one of the standards properly connected.

The present invention has relation to toys; and it consists in the novel arrangement hereinafter described, and particularly pointed out in the claims.

Similar numerals of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the figures of the drawings.

In the accompanying drawings, 1 represents the base, which is formed of a size suflicient to hold in proper upright position the parallel standards 2, which parallel standards are securely attached in any convenient and well-known manner to the base 1; but I prefer to attach the standards 2 as hereinafter described. The standards 2 may be formed of any desired height, reference being had to the number of images designed to be employed. The images 3, as shown, represent the human body; but of course other forms may be used without departing from the nature of my invention. The images 3 are pivotally mounted upon bars 4 or the bars 4 pivotally connected to the standards 2 as desired, as it will be understood that the only object to be accomplished is to provide means for rotatably mounting the images 3, and of course it is immaterial so far as their present invention is concerned as to whether or not the images rotate upon the bars or the bars rotate with the images. To the top or upper ends of the standards 2 is attached in any convenient or well-known manner or formed integral therewith the ball-dropping cup 5, which cup is provided With the aperture 6. The images 3 are so balanced that their normal positions will be that illustrated in the four lowermost ones in Fig. 1 and Figs. 2 and 3. The upper or head portion of the images 3 are each provided with the pocket or recesses 7, which recesses are provided with the inclined bottoms 8, which inclined bottoms are provided with the flanges 9, which flanges may be formed integral with the inclined bottoms 8, or the flanges 9 may be the inner surface of the head of the image, as desired.

For the purpose of causing the images to rotate a ball 10 is employed, which ball is dropped in the cup 5 and falls through the aperture 6 and into the recess 7 of the uppermost image, which ball rolls down the incline 7 until it reaches the flange 9, said ball being of such a weight that it will overbalance the image, and thereby impart a rotary movement, the ball remaining in the recess until the image has again come into a vertical position or made a half-revolution, at which time the ball 10 drops through the aperture 11 and falls into the recess 7 in the next lowermost image, which movements are continued until all the images have been rotated and the ball finds its way into the pocket 12.

,It will be understood that after the ball 10 has passed from the recesses the then upper end of the image will be the heavier, and by the momentum imparted to the image by their half-revolutions they will continue their movements until a complete and full revolution has been made, thereby causing the im-' ages to assume their normal position, after which the same ball or another ball may be dropped in the cup 5 and the movement of the images repeated. It will be understood that the upper portions of the recesses 7 should be partially closed, leaving only the aperture 11 through which the balls 10 are to pass, and the curvature of the flanges 9 and the portions of the heads of the images be-- ing such that the balls Wlll not pass through the apertures 11 until the images have completed their half-revolution, so that the ball 10 will find its way into the recess of the next lowermost image. The parallel standards 2 are provided at their bottom or lower ends with the tangs 13, which tangs are passed through suitable apertures in the base 1 and bent, as illustrated in Fig. 4. This is simply mechanical, as any other way may be employed to connect the standards.

Having fully described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-- 1. In a toy of the class described, an image pivotally mounted and provided with a re cess, said recess having an inclined bottom and an aperture of a size less than the dimensions of the recess, and a cup provided with an aperture, said aperture located directly above the normal position of the image, substantially as and for the purpose specified.

2. In a toy of the class described, a series of images provided with recessed heads, and apertures formed of a size less than the dimensions of the recesses, said .images pivotally mounted in a vertical plane and a dropcup located above the normal positions of the CORT W. TOWVNSEND.
