Abstract: An elastic doll capable of being bent at sites therein which are to be bent and kept from being bent at sites therein which are not to be bent, to thereby be deformed in a natural manner and capable of being downsized. The elastic doll includes a trunk (1), arms (2) and legs (3) in which a skeleton member (7) is embedded. The skeleton member (7) is constituted by first cores (8) made of metal and arranged at sites in the doll corresponding to joints and second cores made of rigid synthetic resin and arranged at sites in the doll corresponding to distal ends thereof and positions between joints adjacent to each other. The first cores (8) and second cores (9) are connected to each other, wherein the first cores (8) are covered with synthetic resin (6a) as required. The skeleton member (7) is covered with a skin/flesh member (6) made of soft synthetic resin.
Abstract: A toy top includes a toy body having a main spring power device therein, the main spring power device being rotatively linked with a revolving shaft provided on a center of a bottom surface of the toy body. The main spring power device includes latch means for maintaining a winding-up position when a main spring is wound up and a button for releasing the latch means so as to release a revolving force of the main spring. The toy body is provided with a press mechanism for pressing the button according to a rise or a reduction in a centrifugal force during the revolution of the toy body.
Abstract: A frame 3 is divided at a substantial center portion thereof into a front frame part and a back frame part. The two frame parts are joined by a hinge portion 25 so that the divided frame can be folded in two. The frame 3 is provided with detection device 30 for detecting whether or not the frame 3 has been folded at the hinge portion 25. The motor 2 becomes inoperable when the detection device 30 detects the folding of the frame 3.
Abstract: A toy top game unit is provided, the unit comprising a toy top, driving means for rotating said toy top, a game board for receiving said toy top thereon, means for interacting the toy top and the game with each other, and for imparting a change to an operational mode of the toy top on said game board.
The interacting means include first magnet means arranged on the toy top and second magnet means arranged on the game board.
Abstract: Colored magnetic particles for magnetophoretic display capable of substantially preventing peeling of a pigment therefrom, to thereby prevent contamination of a dispersion medium during use of a magnetophoretic display panel, and a method for manufacturing the same. The colored magnetic particles include magnetic particle elements and a coloring layer formed on each of the magnetic particle elements from a first dispersion liquid using a coating apparatus of a tumbling, fluidizing and granulating type, to thereby color each of the magnetic particles. The first dispersion liquid is constituted of a coloring pigment, synthetic resin and water. The synthetic resin is in the form of an aqueous emulsion. The colored magnetic particles each include a protective layer formed on the coloring layer. The protective layer is formed from a second dispersion liquid constituted of synthetic resin dispersed in water.
Abstract: A game piece and game board assembly includes a game piece body having a weight mounting section. A weight member can be mounted at various locations on the weight mounting section to vary the center of gravity. The game piece can strike an opponent's game piece on a game board to score points. A cover can obscure the location of the weight member on the game piece.
Abstract: A magnetic display panel capable of ensuring safety to the body of an infant, permitting drawing of clear lines and ensuring safe disposal thereof. A magnetic display panel (1) includes a core housing (3) which has a peripheral edge (3a) formed to have an increased height and is formed therein with a recess (8), a plate-like face member (2) arranged so as to cover the recess (8), and a core block (5) provided with a number of cells (4) in which a plastic dispersion liquid (7) containing magnetic particles is encapsulated and sealedly joined between the core block (5) and the plate-like face member (2) by an adhesive. The core housing (3) and plate-like face member (2) are each made of olefin synthetic resin. One of the core housing (3) and plate-like face member (2) constitutes a drawing faceplate which is formed to be transparent or semi-transparent. The core block (5) is formed of pulp made paper.
Abstract: A toy top comprising a toy body having a revolving shaft arranged at a lowermost portion of the toy body and a mount support member provided therein; the toy body including a plurality of blade members; the blade members being laid to overlap each other; and the blade members being detachably mounted with respect to the remaining blade members through the mount support member. A revolving shaft control mechanism is provided in the toy body so as to control revolution of the revolving shaft.
Abstract: A swimming element enjoying system capable of applying an external stimulus to a swimming element moved at a predetermined rhythm, to thereby permit the swimming element to carry out different motion, to thereby provide an observer with a fresh surprise, so that the observer may be soothed or healed. A swimming element made in imitation of an aquatic life and a drive unit for driving the swimming element each are provided with a permanent magnet. The permanent magnet of the drive unit is rotated, to thereby permit an attracting/repulsing action to be carried out between the permanent magnets, leading to random vertical motion of said swimming element. Motion of the swimming element is randomly varied when a sensor detects an external stimulus.
Abstract: A karaoke system which can be conveniently used by children and youths and help to enhance their creative power and thinking power. The karaoke system includes a main unit connectable to a display unit through a wire or by wireless. The main unit feeds the display unit with image data for displaying words of a music piece on the display unit and music data for playing accompaniment music of the music piece, thereby a karaoke performance being carried out according to the words displayed on the display unit and the accompaniment music outputted from the display unit. In the karaoke system thus constructed, the main unit is constructed so as to permit the display unit to display images constituting at least one story in order and so as to output words and accompaniment music of a music piece associated with the story to the display unit during the course of the story.
