  • Patent number: 10238983
    Abstract: A wobbling toy is configured to spontaneously re-orient itself in an upright position solely under the force of gravity. The self-righting toy includes a weight that is confined to and movable along a pathway such that the weight defines a dynamic mass that is sufficient to cause the housing to spontaneously pivot along a convex outer surface profile in coordination with a position of the weight in the pathway. The self-righting toy is configured to maintain a positional relationship of the weight so that the housing is spontaneously pivotable along the convex surface without external force supplied by a user.

  • Patent number: 10222184
    Abstract: A toy dart includes a deformable cap that safely impacts a target. The cap includes two layers of substantially parallel hollow passages that provide spaces that allow the cap to deform. The lower layer, having two hollow passages, is supported by exterior posts and an interior wall between the two hollow passages. The upper layer, having three hollow passages, is supported by exterior posts and interior walls that are laterally offset from the interior wall of the lower layer. The upper and lower layers are separated vertically by a substantially flat divider. Due to the difference in the number of hollow passages and interior walls in each layer, the upper layer is more rigid than the lower layer such that the lower layer of the cap deforms more than the upper layer of the cap upon initial impact with the target.

  • Patent number: 10215524
    Abstract: A ball-launching device includes a housing, ball holder, elastomeric member, cocking member, latch, and trigger assembly. The housing has an opening at a first end defining an elongated cavity. The ball holder is disposed in the cavity and slidable in an axial direction from a first position proximate to the opening at the housing first end, to a second position. The elastomeric member is selectively arranged within the housing to bias the ball holder toward the first position. The cocking member includes a first portion disposed outside of the housing, being usable to move the ball holder into a cocked position, where the latch opposes the bias of the elastomeric member and releasably secures the cocking member and the ball holder. Actuating the trigger assembly releases the latch, permitting the elastomeric member to accelerate the ball holder towards the housing first end to launch the ball therefrom.

  • Patent number: 10197368
    Abstract: An auxiliary cutting implement for attachment between a broadhead and arrow shaft includes preferably two or more coils each having two cutting edges formed along their opposite elongated side edges. As the coils pass through the animal they unroll and slice through animal flesh in all directions. The coils are biased toward their rolled position which increases the multi-directional movement of the coil and cutting edges through the animal resulting in a large cutting area and fast kill as compared to the broadhead alone.
