Abstract: A toy system has at least one toy vehicle having wheels, and at least one toy object having a member, which is movable between an initial position and an active position. The toy object has an operating element, which is movable between a first position, in which it is adapted to hold said member in its initial position, and a second position, in which said member is allowed to be moved from its initial position to its active position. At least one of the wheels of the toy vehicle includes a part, which is adapted, when the toy vehicle is moved to a position adjacent to the operating element, to interact magnetically with the operating element to move it from its first position to its second position.
Abstract: A magnetic coupling device on a toy vehicle has a magnetic element and a fixing element, by means of which the magnetic element is fixed to the vehicle. The fixing element has a dome-shaped coupling surface, which is arranged to be kept in abutment by magnetic attraction against a coupling surface of a coupling device on another toy vehicle. Inside the coupling surface, the fixing element has an inner cavity, in which the magnetic element is arranged to be freely movable.
Abstract: A toy bridge comprising a stand and, supported thereby, a bridge road element having a roadway on each of two opposite flat sides. The stand is turnable and can optionally be placed on a base in a first or second position, in which the bridge road element is arranged at a first or a second distance from the base and its one or other flat side faces upwards. A supporting yoke is arranged at each end of the bridge to form a support for a ramp road element connected to the bridge road element. The supporting yoke is pivotable relative to the bridge road element by the force of gravity between a first and a second stop position, in which it forms a subjacent support for the ramp road element when the stand is in its first and its second position, respectively.
Abstract: A switching device (5) is arranged in a junction element (1), which is to be used in a toy railway and is in the form of a reversible plate. On each flat side, this plate is formed with depressions (2, 2', 2"), which in pairs form an incoming railway track (2) and two outgoing railway tracks (2', 2") extending therefrom. On each flat side, the switching device (5) has a switch plate (6) which is arranged in a recess (7) formed in the respective flat sides and which is pivotable between a first position and a second position, in which it produces a track connection between the incoming railway track (2) and the one or the other of the outgoing railway tracks (2', 2"). The switch plates (6) are interconnected by means of a connecting element (12), which extends through a profile hole (16) in the junction element (1) and which, when the switch plates (6) occupy the first and the second position, engages a first and a second portion (16', 16"), respectively, of a wall delimiting the profile hole (16).
Abstract: A magnetic coupling device of a toy vehicle comprises a magnetic element and a fastening element, by means of which the magnetic element is attached to the vehicle. The device also comprises a dome-shaped coupling surface which is arranged on the magnetic element to be kept, by magnetic power, in engagement with a coupling surface of a coupling device of another toy vehicle. The fastening element is connected to the magnetic element and movably mounted on the toy vehicle such that the magnetic element with the coupling surface arranged thereon is freely pivotable at least about a horizontal axis extending transversely of the direction of motion of the vehicle.
Abstract: A toy has a body and a tipping load carrier which is rotatably mounted in the body about a horizontal axis for rotation between a load-receiving position and at least one tipping position. The body has a planar upper surface portion. The load carrier has a planar lower surface portion with which the load carrier, when in its load-receiving position, is resting on the planar upper surface portion of the body. Each of two mutually aligned pivot pins defining said axis is fixed to one of the load carrier and the body. The pivot pins are mounted each in a vertically elongate hole which is formed in the other of the load carrier and the body.
Abstract: The present disclosure is directed to a wheel set for toy rail vehicles having wheels with rims extending radially from hubs which are mounted on a smooth axle passed through a hole in the chassis of the vehicle. A spring disc with a cover is fitted on the axle end and clutched by the wheel hub provided with a constricted opening recess, thereby retaining the wheels on the axle.
